This morning I had big plans of waking up and going on a nice long run outside. When I woke up this morning the weatherman claimed it to be 24 degrees outside! Ummm….Brrr!!
How cold is too cold for YOU to run/exercise outside?
Instead of dealing with the winter cold, I hit the gym with high hopes of running some major miles! I embraced the warmth of the complex gym. I had the place to myself so I spent the majority of the time maxing and relaxing on the treadmill while watching part of The View followed by some of an old What Not To Wear episode. I love when I get to pick what’s on TV in the gym! I try to plan my treadmill runs around certain television episodes so I am not bored while running. I could probably run for hours and hours watching some of my favorite TV shows!
Do you watch TV while running? What’s your favorite thing to watch?
I pounded out a little over 7 miles on the treadmill. The time flew by while I was watching the tube. With only 31 days until the Disney Princess Half Marathon and 45 days until the NYC Half Marathon, I have to get my booty in shape to RUN! I feel better now that I have pounded out more than half the race distance!
After running my little heart out I got some stretching in.
I know so many runners that are suffering from injuries right now. I am trying really hard to make stretching a bigger part of my routine. I don’t want to injure myself!
As Aileen would say, “ We want to be doing this [running] when we are 50 years old, so we need to take care of ourselves now!”
What’s your favorite way to stretch?
After some stretching I did some work on my abs. I do have my wedding coming up, so I got to get my abs looking fierce!
Anyone have any ab workout suggestions for me?
After all that I was pooped!
Incase you are wondering, yes that is my Inperspire towel wrapped around my neck. I wet it a little with water and it helps keep me cool. It also keeps the sweat from dripping all over the place. Sexy, right?
