I have decided that I am going to start blogging about my workouts to keep me accountable to myself. I haven't really had time to actually blog about fun stuff, and I hope to do so soon. Summertime has me out in the sun when it isn't 102 degrees and really humid reading books and soaking up the sun.

I have read quite a few books this summer and I currently can't put down "The Help" Such a great book and I can't wait to see the movie when it comes out. I hope that it is just as good as the book.

This morning my gym partner had to be at the gym at 6 instead of our normal 6:30 am. She is crazy enough to be entertaining 4 kids today...Only one of which belongs to her. Crazy lady!

Last night I decided that I would run to the gym this morning and I texted that idea to Tanja before I could take it back. I Google mapped the distance from my house to the gym and I got 1.7 miles...Totally doable as a morning warm-up before I got to the gym. At 5:50 this morning I strapped on my running shoes, my Nike+ app and Iphone and off I went. I quickly realized that those 1.7 miles really was 2.79 miles, and it isn't as cool outside as one would hope it to be at 6am in Minnesota.

Running with a destination in mind, and a friend waiting for you and cheering you on to get there safe makes running a lot easier. I ran a pretty steady 9:30 mile for almost 3 miles which is pretty good for me. I just started really liking running about a month or 2 ago and I am gearing up to run a 10K in September.

Now it is back to the daily grind. I wasn't feeling well on Friday so I took a sick day to recoup which means that Monday is going to be even busier!


  1. Wow good job with the run!!

    Did you ever hate running? I am not a big runner, but I'd LOVE to actually enjoy it. I just need to know how much I need to do before the wow-I-love-running stuff kicks in :)

  2. That is good girl. Man, I have been sucking at the gym. My cardio sucks to begin with. I only do the spin class on weds at 5 am. I usually lift but have hit a peak and i guess I am using that as an excuse. As along as you are enjoying it and when you do your run you will feel awesome. Keep at it.

  3. Way to go rockstar! ;) And The Help is definitely on my list... maybe after I finish The Hunger Games!

  4. I'm so proud of your dedication to working out!!
