I had a great workout today. I was supposed to meet Katye this morning, but mother nature had other plans (but I was able to sleep in, so good news there!!), so I took advantage of some free time with the husband (starting next Monday I become a law school widow again).
I was finally all suited up to head to the train and it was raining again! I decided to head to my gym instead and boy, am I glad I did.
Let me be honest with you bloggy-world. I have been a bit slacking on my runs. I tell myself I am "tired" and let myself walk. I am only cheating myself. So, today, I vowed to tackle the 8 miles TMB Endurance has mapped out for me and went SLOW, which was ok. You have to run slow to run faster! No more being a wuss allowed!
Let me tell you, I wanted to stop. I wanted to die. But I kept going, and going some more, telling myself to just make it to the next half mile, and then the next quarter mile. Before I knew it (ok, not really--my eye was on my distance and time the whole time and I felt like it was dragging on forever!) I was done and because I am crazy, I decided to do some additional leg work with a series of leg curls, extensions and squats. . I left the gym feeling SUPER strong and SUPER upbeat. To think, my motivation has been lacking lately too! Its just nice to know I can do it, even if its slow!
I am currently 3 followers away from 50 followers (oh, I remember when I was excited to hit 10). Once I hit that milestone, look for a giveaway, since I love you all so much!
Speaking of giveaways, remember, you have until midnight tonight (EST) to enter my giveaway. I will announced the winner, selected at random, tomorrow by 10AM EST.
PS--For my Annapolis area peeps--on September 21st, I am hosting a spirit night at California Tortilla. I get 25% of their sales from the night if you tell them my secret word of "Disney." Please pass this along to anyone you think might be interested!!
