Apparently I am crazy, or I think I’m still in college. I’m going out tonight to see Paul Oakenfold at Fluxx. I have work tomorrow at 8am. What am I thinking!? I’m thinking that I want to go DANCE! It’s just that fun make ya wanna dance house music vibe. My legs might be tired, I may have a half marathon on Sunday, but I want to dance and P surprised me with tickets. Plus, Fluxx is probs the coolest club in the Gaslamp Quarter of SD.
So, while I will be a super tired and haggard lady at work tomorrow, it’s totally worth it.
Not only will I be super tired, but I have my very first 5k tomorrow. You can tell my priorities are in order. I’m not really running to compete (right?). The Chancellor’s 5k is a run on UC San Diego’s campus tomorrow during our lunch break. The $15 entry fee gets me an extended lunch break, a free lunch and a T-shirt and they still somehow make a profit which goes to scholarships on campus. My plan is just to run it as fast as my danced out, fatigued legs can take me and call it a win. Did I mention I get a T-shirt!?
Phil is on a roll this week. He must be trying to beat out every other bf in the world for the Amazing Award. Not only is he buying all of the goods for us to make homemade sushi for dinner tomorrow, including cauliflower so that I can have cauliflower rice in my rolls, but he made me an appointment to get a facial this weekend (just because). My boyfriend is amazing.
I bought my gym pass on Tuesday and I have to say, working out the the gym is a nice change of pace. My body was ready to have a day (or week) off after yesterday’s workout, but after 8 hours of sleep I feel much better. Sleep plays a HUGE role in my energy level. It also plays a huge role in my level of crazy beezo in the morning.
A reader requested a sample workout plan. I put together the plan that I have basically been running on in some form for the last year or so. Occasionally I change it up (like when I started the HalHigs plan) but it usually looks something like this:
Just for the record. I really want both of these shoes. Not sure which one’s I want for the mary but I really want them. I also really need to buy more workout clothes. It’s one thing to feel like a bum when you run, but staring at yourself in a mirrored wall for an hour is no fun when you don’t feel cute. As I simplify my apartment I am removing vital clothing storage… what to do what to do!?
I like the Nike Outlets well enough (except that I HATE my 3 pairs of Tempo shorts because they make me look like I am wearing depends) and while Lululemon has great stuff I can only justify buying something every once in a while. I need some tights, a killer pair of shorts, a new tank top (I like the thin racer back style) and a couple of long sleeve shirts. Where does everyone like buying workout clothes that don’t break the bank? Maybe I should just ask for giftcards for Christmas and go on a workout clothing shopping spree!!!
