Totally slacking on my blog time here...I totally forgot to write about yesterday's cardio with the Super Secret Jillian Michaels Workout Society at work (I so need a shorter name for us). Anyway - turns out with all this running I am a video cardio queen. Rocked it! Sure, I still felt like I got a decent workout in, but it was fun to be able to goof off a bit while the other ladies were dying (they kick my ass on the weights videos while I am trying to balance on one arm and keep my nose from smashing into the floor, so I consider this my revenge... Jillian, what the hell were you thinking when you put some of those moves in?)
and then today, I really didn't want to go for a run. My left knee has been naggy and I was just generally not feeling it. Then I forgot socks AND my Garmin at home and that nearly sealed the deal. But I found a pair of socks in the bottom of my desk drawer (say what? I'm supposed to use those drawers for WORK related things? Pshaw!)
I dragged my arse out and ran the southwood loop and by 1k in I felt much more into it. Always happens.
And thank you Nike+ for taking away my excuses...I am such a stat whore.
I'm so glad I went. I do, however, see that I have some serious work to do to get my speed back.
I was all glisten-y when I got back - thank you January warm up. Oh and you can't tell in the pic - but that was a short sleeve shirt I wore under my jacket...and was still too warm. (btw - so glad my new running jacket has pit vents. Yay!)
The knee was still a bit tender, but feeling much better. I'm taking the weekend off so I bet I feel much better next week.
