Today's run was a chore. It was raining outside so I attempted my 30min run indoors. With a stretching break and potty break during that time, I only managed to cover about 2.06 miles in that time. I just was SO NOT INTO IT. :P I almost just called it at 1mile, but I said to myself, how am I going to run a marathon if I wuss out on a 30 min run?? Even if it is indoors and crappy and my hamstrings are feeling ridiculous? So I'm proud I stuck with it. No I was not running a 15min mile, due to the breaks, but still -- I intended todays run to be a lovely 5K route around campus. :P oh well.
Then MTC -- I really enjoyed some of the exercises I had to do today, so that wasn't so bad. Still totally wiped at the end. I didn't drink enough water this morning before getting going so until right about now I haven't felt quite... normal. I just got back from a snack break and fueled up w/ the last of my Homemade Granola mixed with some Blueberry Pomegranite Probiotic yogurt from Target, and an apple. Woot.
Also -- regarding yesterday's workout -- plank ups, close grip/scorpion pushups were all done from the knees. I can do a regular pushup from the toes -- but my right shoulder/wrist have been bugging me everytime I do those types of moves lately, and even if it weren't -- close grip pushups are the devil. I actually saw some dude CRANKING them out last night at the gym while I was doing hanging abs. I was like wow... that is amazing. HAHAHAA.
That said, I'm over 2300 calories again at this point and I'm looking forward to a more relaxed trip to the gym tomorrow.
I've entered in today including all snacks and a potential dinner plan into my tracker in case anyone is interested -- I might change dinner up a bit since it's a bit meat/fat heavy... hahaha :D I also diligently tracked everything yesterday. YAY. Gotta keep on this 100% tracking streak -- I really need to make sure my calories are coming from good places and being pretty balanced.
Plank rows on a more beautiful and energetic day in the past, 12lb dumbbells. :)
P.S. -- ALMOST FORGOT TO MENTION -- Let's Dance was AWESOME last night. Regular teacher girl was BACK. We danced to Beyonce's Radio and got some definite booty shaking in. She's such a better instructor in general, and the choreography realllllly fit the music.
