Ready, Set, RUN!

Thursday, January 07, 2010

It wasn't too much ready set today. Its cold outside, and I feel cold and a bit stiff. But I have a race to train for, so there's not time to be cold or stiff!

After I got the kiddo to school on the ice rink, I changed my clothes and got on the treadmill. I didn't do my normal warm up, I just walked for a while, then started running and realized, I wasn't gonna be able to do that today. My ankle was hurting. My shoulder was bothering me again today......pop, pop, pop.....that is annoying!!

So I put my weight vest on (10 extra pounds) and walked for a while, I ran the "chorus" of the song lists and then the next song, walk for 2 minutes and repeat. And I increased my run speed a hair.

Now I'm not so cold!! But I should eat something and then get clean. Hubby is at work, kiddo is at school, I have the house to myself for the next 4 hours!! WHOO HOOOO!!! Gotta make the most of my alone time!

Crank up the radio, clean the house, and chill!!
