Cross Training and Atypical Friday

Sep 18, 2010 12:55 AM

First things first: Shut Up and Run! is giving away a goheadband. It reminds me of something Bart Yasso would wear if he were Bret Michaels (Rock of Love). And it is something I would TOTALLY wear because my hair looks awful once I get a good sweat going. My hair is actually the least of my woes after a workout, but anything would help.

I don't know why I can't look like this after I finish a workout

Good luck vibes to me on winning the giveaway.

Today was cross training day, I took a one hour strength class at the gym. I love cross training days because I get to do something fun besides running without feeling like I'm cheating on running. (Geez, does that even make sense? Like running is my boyfriend?)

The Puff had a doctor appointment this afternoon. Had to have 5 (FIVE!) different vaccinations plus a flu shot. My poor kid was poked like a voodoo doll. She took it like a trooper, thank goodness, because I was a total mess at the sight of all those needles. Good thing one of us stayed calm cool & in control. Unfortunately it was the one of us who is 4 years old.

Tomorrow I have an 8-mile taper run on the schedule. It's a taper because I'll be running the Say No to Drugs Half Marathon at the Rose Bowl a week from Saturday. I'm excited about running my second half marathon and checking off the 2nd of 3 halfs to qualify as a Half Fanatic. There may even be a Marathon Maniac in my future...Eeeks!!!!

Eating the rainbow today:
R- tomatoes in my lunch salad and with dinner
O-mandarin slices
Y-pre-workout banana
G-10 lb salad at lunch
BIV-red grapes, and the last of the blackberries
