I don’t even know who I was this morning. I woke up at 5:45 without an alarm clock and I was wide-awake. I was going to do a Jillian workout but then when I remembered my BIL is sleeping on the couch, I thought that might be a little bit awkward and so I went to the gym instead.
Good thing I don’t have a snow scraper and had to use an old (already scratched) CD to get the ice off my windshield.
I did 30 minutes on the elliptical (my first time on that machine in a month) and 30 minutes of weights…..I am already on my way to reaching my weekly goal. The best part about the time on the elliptical was that Pop-Up Video was on VH1. Please tell me you used to watch that too….gotta love all the little facts that come up during the music video. I feel like I know Dr. Dre now.
I really do love working out in the mornings but I really love getting sleep too, such a life-changing decision;)
The cold air even kept my peach/banana/greek yogurt/milk smoothie frozen in the car, I will forever be thankful.
Two awkward hand pictures right in a row, you are welcome.
Ever since I brainwashed Billy to become obsessed with running we now plan all of our trips around running a race. Our next stop will be down to warm St. George to run the Dogtown Half-Marathon on February 25th. I ran this race last year and absolutely loved it (minus the random and unexpected bad weather) and can’t wait to run it again.
Who is going to come run it with us?!?! Pretty please….we can have a post race eating a whole pizza per person contest right after.
I will be using this 1/2 marathon more of a training run and enjoying every second of it because it is not a key race for me this year and I gotta save my racing for racing ya know but Billy is using this awesome plan from Smart Coach to smash his 1:36 goal (this plan was free).
