Brooke gets quite a kick out of watching me attempt to do 30-Day Shred. Since she is staring at me the entire 20 minutes it is incentive for me to not cheat nearly as much as I do when I do the workout when she is sleeping. I even tried a few of the push-ups on my toes to impress her. She wasn’t impressed.
It was a crazy beautiful day out and so the people watching me on my treadmill that don’t know I have a baby napping on the other side of the screen door are probably so confused why I am not enjoying the sunshine and running on my porch instead. I did the Jillian DVD before my run because if I don’t do it first, it will never happen. I got in 5 miles with no back pain at a 8:00 min/mile pace and it was so so good to be back again.
Since I am not currently teaching spin right now I rarely download music and just rely on Pandora to get me through my workouts. Today Pandora worked it’s magic and helped me to find 5 new songs that I am loving to run to:
1. One More Night by Maroon 5 (okay, I have heard this song a lot before and loved it but just tried running to it today and it was awesome).
2. Die Young by Ke$ha (yes, I am 26 years old and love working out to Ke$ha).
3. Feel Again by OneRepublic (a little slower than most songs I like to run to but I just love everything by OneRepublic).
4. I Will Wait by Mumford and Sons (has some slower parts but the fast parts are really energizing).
5. I Cry by Flo Rida
Last but most importantly… where can I find adult socks that look like shoes? I would be more than okay wearing just socks for the rest of my life (besides running shoes when I am running).
How was your run today?
Heard any new awesome running songs?
Random question of the day: Do you sleep with socks on?
-YES!!! I have to even if it is really hot in our apartment. I love socks.
