After toddler play time, bath time and then bed time I was sure I wouldn't have the energy in me to go for a run. But, I had talked to my mom earlier in the day and told her I was going to run the route for my upcoming 5K (yay neighborhood races!) and just before I left work she sent me an email telling me to enjoy my run.
The good news about the route is I am very familiar with it. In fact, on most of my runs I run the route in the opposite direction which is harder. This will hopefully be a fun and easy race. Funny thing, there was plenty of construction on some of the roads the route is supposed to follow. I wonder if it will be done in time or if we'll just run around it?
Here I am post run. Gotta love a blurry and sweaty selfie!
|And it was still light out. At 9:15!|
After my run I grabbed some water then headed to the basement to pump some iron.
I finally remembered to take a picture of my badass weight lifting set-up.
And please ignore that stain on the wall. It isn't a stain, it's a patch, I think. Man, it looks like I work out in a dungeon. It's not that bad, I promise!
I pumped some iron and watched So You Think You Can Dance. There really is nothing like watching supremely fit athletes dance around in very little clothing to inspire one to keep doing those crunches.
