It's after midnight, and I'm very sleepy, but I want to post this before I go to bed and forget it. I went for a late run tonight (~10pm) and was pleasantly surprised at how good it felt. I ran faster, more easily than before. I still have no endurance, and so took frequent walk breaks, but the running part...I couldn't make myself go slow. My left foot kind of hurt for a bit. Earlier this week it popped weird a couple of times--on the top outside part. I pretty much just kept going, and it stopped hurting after a bit. After running a while I did feel my shins (muscles) start to tighten up, so I walked even more. But, yay, I finally actually enjoyed the running. :~)
I just now titled this post and fear I may be plagiarizing. ;~) I recently saw the end of Sweet Home Alabama, and I do believe that (post title) is what the groom says when Melanie jilts him at the altar. That sounds harsh written that way; she did it as sweetly as I think one can do that sort of thing. (If you can't quite remember the movie, it starred Reese Witherspoon and Patrick Dempsey.) Anyway. I wrote the title and then remembered the movie.
Monday I went to a promotion party and missed my workout. I didn't make it up on Tues. On Wed I did kettlebells for 10 min (5 min long cycle each hand--49 reps ea--8kg/18lb weight). On a side note, I qualified for Rank IV in the women's one arm long cycle per the World Kettlebell Club's requirements. (World Kettlebell Club) Then I walked ~-.2mi and walk/jogged an easy 15min mile and wrapped things up with crunches, planks and stretches.
I didn't get a good time for tonight's run b/c my watch went on the fritz ~3sec into my warm up. :( Hopefully I can replace it soon.
Also, tonight I registered for the Air Force Marathon 10K race (Sept).
