Last nights workout was pretty tough. So tough that I am sore today. Its a good sore today and not that cant move sore, but hurting none the less. We did a circuit last night with some new exercises and some old faithful exercises as well. One new exercise that we did last night was taking a barbell and holding it over head, then dropping it down from shoulder to shoulder. That is what has made me sore.
When we got done with our circuit I had to lay on the ground for a few just to make sure I was not dying. We went to walk just a bit before we left...we always walk to warm up and cool down. Well, while we were walking around I wanted to show her a new bicep workout that I learned. Remember I told you all about it. We did one set, one set of 5, and my workout buddy yelled at me. It hurt my feelers pretty bad but I put on my tough skin and got over it. My sweet, timid, quiet workout buddy yelled!
So this morning we had a short run scheduled. Well wires got crossed (my running buddy lost her phone) so the run was shorter than we even planned but it was one of the best I have had in a while...pre-marathon good. I figured since we had so little time we could at least run faster than normal. We were under an 11 min pace which is really a lot faster for me.
When I got to the gym this morning to run (that's our meeting place) it was about 50 degrees outside. Beautiful weather to run in. I had on a short sleeve shirt with a light weight fleece over it and a hat. About half way through our run, all in an instant it became 114 degrees outside. Luckily my running buddy can run with something tied around her waist because I started stripping off clothing as fast as I could get it off my body. I thought I was having a heat stroke. Once back at the gym I got the rest of my clothing off even faster than I thought was possible.
After the run I rushed off to work. When I got there I was so fired up from my run my sentences were all really fast with lots of words in very short amounts of time. Anyway, I have calmed down now but so ready to run again. It felt so good this morning and with shorter distances my knee doesn't hurt hardly at all.
Next: Tonight if I get a chance to workout it will have to be really late because I am booked up til about 8 o'clock. I'm thinking about no nighttime workout tonight, instead take the excess 13 minutes of my time and going and getting a new cell phone and then killing it in the morning.
Oh, my cell phone has decided that it no longer wants to work; it freezes and will not hold a charge. Do you think cell phone companies program a virus for 2 years exactly so that you have to get a new phone every 2 years whether you want it or not? I am beginning to think they do. I have been shopping all day and just thought I was going to get an iphone...I think I'm cool enough for an iphone, but after much shopping I may be going in another direction completely, maybe not as cool as I thought. I really just want a phone that works!
I hope tomorrows run goes as well as today.
