Over the Hump

The weekend is sooooooooo close I can smell it.  Its like getting to Southern Alabama and being able to smell the salt water, but I am not going to the beach so that is really a bad example.  I don't know why I am so excited about the weekend other than the fact that I wont be at work and my weekend might actually be relaxing.  Last weekend was crazy!

Yesterday was a good workout day for me.  Tuesday afternoon I did my workout and that was about it, I finished it.  I struggled through most of Tuesdays workout.  And once I finished my workout everything hurt....I was just really doubting if my workouts would ever be the same.

Then last night I went to the gym.  I did a short weights workout, both upper and lower body, and then I hit the road for a run.  I wanted to wait for later in the afternoon so it would be a little bit cooler, it was not, and if I waited long enough I could run to church for choir practice and not have to make it back or be rushed to get to my car and be on time. 

It was a good run.  I am still building back my stamina.  I can tell each day I'm doing better.  Last night I started my day during the day light, then when practice was over I had to run back to my car.  It was not that far back but it was dark and the sweet guys that I sing with didn't like me running in the dark.  One of the guys followed me for a while, then turned around and drove back by..."I see you!!!!"  It was sweet. 

I actually enjoyed the night time run.  I have done it a few times in my neighborhood but never on the highway. I stayed on the main road as to not be attacked and murdered since that kind of thing only happens at night.  The only bit of drama was the guy sitting on bench that was smoking.....I had to stop and punch him in the face out of jealousy but I soon got back to my run!  Amazingly enough I actually saw other people running at 8:30pm.  Who knew?  I was sure I would be the only one out at night!!

After my run/workout I felt so much better than I did the night before.  Yipee!!!! I was still sore and ready to be done for the night.  I went to my dad's and we watched the Revenge finale and had dinner together. 

I was sure I would sleep great, eh, not so much.  I was sure after 2 days of working out hard core I would be sleeping like a baby!  I miss going to bed at 10 and waking up at 5:30 for a workout, now its more like getting home at 10:30, bed at midnight and just praying that I don't oversleep for work!  I am a girl that values her sleep, that is for sure.

I have my workout clothes for tonight but right now I'm looking forward to my pajamas!
