Super Speedy Strides (7:30 splits, what what?!)
45 minutes elliptical
1 hour Strength Training Class
Yesterday fall finally showed up to SoCal meaning it rained and was in the 60′s. Actually, around these woods, we call that winter. It rocked my crazy little moderately temperature loving body. Yes, I pretty much have a temperature comfort threshold ranging from 65-75. I was made for SoCal.
On Thursday, it looked like it was going to rain when I was running so I ran really fast for 4 miles to ensure I didn’t melt like the Wicked Witch of the West. It only drizzled, so don’t worry, I only lost half a leg.
Speaking of Thursday nights, I teach at a local university until 10pm so getting up early on Fridays to work out is super fun. But I do it because I
am a masochist it’s the only time it works out to get in a decent workout.
Don’t let her name deceive you, SR’s a total beast. Her idea of a post-marathon “recovery” day is running 7 miles and she sandwiched our muscle busting, pain-inducing strength training class between two marathons in 7 days.
She was taking down a gel pack when I got into class. But I’m pretty sure it was full of shards of glass to wash down her bowl of gravel for breakfast because this girl is so tough, tough, tough…
When I running grow up I want to run like SR.
During the class, the instructor kept reminding us that we continue to burn calories throughout the day because of the type of interval training we were doing.
This is good because I’m going to be going to The Hat tonight with some friends.
Pastrami. Yum. Don’t judge. Heaven’s to betsy it’s so good to eat bad once in a while. Besides we’re going bowling too so if I’m going to embrace my inner midwesterner, I may as well eat like one.
What’s your favorite day to get in a good workout?
What’s your favorite naughty food?
What size bowling ball do you use?
After this morning’s weight training class, I think I want to find the 4 pound ball because my arms hurt.
