To celebrate the occasion, or my so-called half marathon training, I woke up at 6 am for a very early morning run. As I was getting ready, I realized that the humidity was already ridiculous. I'm not conditioned to run very long in crazy humidity, so I did what any smart girl would do: I pulled out my laptop for about twenty minutes and then went back to bed. In my exercise clothes. I finally rolled out of bed at 10:40. It's a rough life, to say the least!
Since it was too hot for me to run outside and be happy at the same time, I made the tough decision to conquer my "frenemy", the treadmill.
I didn't want to go for a long time today, and I thought it wouldn't kill me to do some speed work. I printed a sheet of four treadmill workouts from fitsugar.com and picked the sprint interval workout. I did two one-minute sprints, and then I quit at minute 8. I told you that I hate treadmill workouts!
I probably could have continued on a bit longer, but I just wasn't feeling it. I can go out and run 7-8 miles without a problem right now, but I am not good at going fast. It's something I need to work on. In other words, it's a goal! I decided that I will try this workout at least once a week. The next time I do it, I'll go for ten minutes. Then, I'll tack on minutes little by little until I can complete the workout. Also, if I build up little by little, I am less likely to irritate my legs. No more excuses! I gotta get better.
As usual, Rigley kept me company. She's always there for moral support.
I tried soaking Goo Gone on it, but I was still left with brownish-yellow spots. I guess I should keep going with the Goo Gone? Or perhaps I can just put big pictures over them.
I still have lots of cleaning to do....
I did not like the first movies at all, because they were not how I envisioned the book. The first movie that I actually liked was the fourth movie. By the time it got to the "Deathly Hallows" (the last book was made into two movies), I had no criticism. I loved the final movie so much, and I should have brought a box of Kleenex for myself and my mom. I was crying so much that I had to force myself to not make sobbing noises and had to sniff really loudly as a result. I couldn't help it. If you have read the book or have seen the movie, I'm sure you know the part that made me hysterical. Great movie. Enough said.
For dinner, I pulled a Sabatino's Flame Broiled chicken burger from the freezer and popped it on the stove.
The chicken patty was gross. It was rubbery and just not good. Very unfortunate. I scraped off the cheese and mixed it with the potatoes.
