Sunny Disposition

I love the sunshine! Sun  Don’t you?  I didn’t realize how much I miss being a morning person until this weekend.  Normally I try to sleep 8/9 AM – 4/5 PM and then I hang out in my room until I leave for work at 10 PM.  On Friday though I had a really hard time sleeping and so I didn’t manage to get out of bed until 830 PM!  I’m so glad I slept in though.  I was able to stay awake until 2 PM and I had the best day in such a long time (with the exception of when my hubby was here of course).

  • I spent 2 hours video chatting with the hubby
  • read blogs did homework
  • went to the base track for a morning workout
  • went downtown and got a pedicure and haircut
  • had lunch at a Thai restaurant and this time really worked on homework

What a great day right?  Open-mouthed smile  My legs are sore after my workout this morning.  It was just what I needed and I’m sure it contributed to my sunny attitude.

I walked here, did a mini strength routine to warm up and then did 3 timed mile repeats.  I made two big mistakes though.  Mistake #1 – Forgot my watch Instead I approximated the times by writing down the songs I listened to during each mile.  I paused the music as soon as I crossed the finish line each time so I knew how many seconds into the song I was. Mistake #2 – I accidentally miscounted my laps and skipped one on my last mile.  Embarrassed smile  Ah well, I won’t forget my watch next time.   Here’s the workout:

  • 2 x 10 pushups
  • 2 x 16 lunges
  • 2 x 30 sec planks
  • 2 x 15 squats
Mile 1:  OAR – Shattered/John Mayer – Split Screen Sadness/Chevelle – Still Running/  Approx. Time = 9:40  <—guess I wasn’t so warmed up yet
 
Mile 2:  KT Tunstall – Suddenly I See/Dropkick Murphys – Surrender/Beyonce – Sweet Dreams/ Approx. Time = 8:09 <—That’s better!
 
Mile 3:  Every Avenue – Tell Me I’m A Wreck/Rock Mafia – The Big Bang/Shinedown – The Crow & The Butterfly/ Approx. Time = 7:19  <—OOPS!

Power Songs

So the track is a 250m loop on top of a parking garage.  Do you see what I see?

I spy track work, hill work and stairs all conveniently located in one building

Sunday  = Rest/laundry/more homework  Hope ya’ll have a great weekend!
