Little Studly!

I have, in my life, travelled a lot. I've stayed in a lot of hotels and have been inside a lot of work-out rooms. At best I used to hop on an eliptical and pretend I routinely used the machine. I was just wasting time, not wanting to sit and watch tv or spend time alone at the hotel bar. I usually only made it 5-8 minutes before I sat down in a sweaty short-of-breath heap, gave up, and went back to watch tv or spend time at the hotel bar.

But yesterday we were in Indianapolis and saw a chocolate shop. I bought fudge. Then I went for a run. 35 minutes- 3.1 miles plus a cool-down.

Yeah. I did.

What to do...

We had our furnace replaced today. It was 94 degrees. And for several hours the installation team had the furnace turned up.

So I cleaned out the linen closet.
I'm counting sweating my buns off as exercising.
And I learned.... yeah. Today fell apart.

Can it count that I'm learning about Russian culture by watching Russian Dolls on Lifetime?

No? Hmmmm. I guess I should pick up a book.

There was no cleaning today. There was the opposite of cleaning... whatever that is.

And just because I knew I was trying to keep up this new program, I put in an hour of Power Yoga! Woot! Got it done!

Now I'm going to bed.

C.L.D. and... B?

It's like M.V.P.... D? (from Jersey Shore, bear with me)

B stands for Breathe. There are so many benefits to adding meditation to my day. And meditation doesn't just mean a few deep breaths before I fall asleep. The book even suggests not meditating before bed at all. I'm going to give LCD (CLD? at least I always end with D) a few more weeks before I try to add anything.

And I really should stop trying to blog after running. My brain just doesn't coordinate typing and thinking.

Cleaned the rest of the basement cabinet area.
Learned more French.
Did another 5k run in the hot hot sun!!!

Does Throwing Up count as cleaning??

Just because when I went on the tilt-a-whirl with Sawyer this afternoon I seriously considered starting a detox program that didn't involve carney-folk. But I digress....

Learned more about detox programs.
Did a 2 mile calibration run on a treadmill.
Cleaned... well would LIKE to clean the rag pile in the basement before the end of the night.

Tuesday Lazy

Cleaned out some of the garage
Learned about meditation and progressive relaxation
Did.... uh.... 5 hours of massage? Does that count? No. I don't think it does.

Run Damnit!

Have you ever seen those cute crafty yard signs that ladies put in their gardens that say, "Grow Damnit!" That's what the title of this post is supposed to be like.

Which is about as far as I got with a post concept. I just got back from a 6.2 run. I'm pretty fuzzy in the brain because I simply haven't had enough water lately. But I finished it. I didn't give myself a choice though- I ran 3.1 miles away and didn't bring a cell phone and flagging down a police man just seemed like a cowardly thing to do. I walked about 10 minutes at the end. But hey, it's done. Stephan and I are reviewing all of our half marathon options for the fall. I'm not convinced I'm going to get one in, but we'll see.

My Learn Clean Do plan fell through on the weekend. But that's what weekends are for, right? Back on the wagon!!
