Good morning Bloggy friends. I am in a good mood today, how about you? It’s not often that I am happy and smiley at work. Usually I walk in and my mood instantly turns around, not today though! It’s sunny and bright, even if it is a little cold and I’ve had 3 good workouts in the last 15 hours! I got home from work yesterday and set out for a slow 30 min run. I’m not going to lie, it hurt a bit, my legs felt sluggish, but I was running between 9:30 and 10 mins the whole time. Although I did take 2 mini walk breaks. It was really nice out and I tried to just slow down and enjoy the run. Too often I find myself focusing on being done when I am running, instead of settling in and enjoying it. After the run, Gary and I walked the dogs and then headed to the gym. I did a short 1200 yard workout. I wanted to go longer, but the water was 84 degrees people. 84 degrees! It was like swimming in a hot tub. I find it hard to get my breath in water that warm. I felt pretty decent the entire swim even though it’s been over a week since the last time I swam. Bad monica. I should have gone longer, but it was already late in the day and I was hungry! So, I got out of the tub and headed home where we had some yummy chicken breast salads. It was already after 8 at this point. I hate eating dinner that late! It was also trash day and G had done a ton of yard work so we had about 12 big bags of yard refuse to drag to the curb, that was a workout in itself.

This morning I had my alarm set for 5:30 so I could go to the gym and lift, but I didn’t get up! Boooo. But I did manage to peel myself out of bed at 6:30 thanks to Tai’s incessant whining. He had to poo. I thought about blowing off my workout and just getting to work early. But instead I turned on VH1 and did my weights workout at home! So, glad I did. Tonight I have plans to bike with N & J. I met them the time I biked with the Shaker group. It’ll be interesting to see how I do. My legs are still pretty tired from this weekend. We’ll just do a 20 mile loop that is full of rolling hills. They will seem like bumps after Lake Placid.

Have a great day everyone.
