Happy Friday[eve]! So close…
My [not so bitchy] Bee advice for the day:
Hang in there:
This little guy (grasshopper) was on my side view for the entire ride into work this morning. I saw him on there when I got on the road and was so sad thinking how he was going to fly to his death once I got on the highway and picked up speed. Not so.
That little sucker held on all the way! You should too, dammit 😉
So in case you didn’t know, I am doing 3, 30-day challenges simultaneously. They go together nicely:
No booze, 30 Day Bikram Challenge, and 30 days meat-free.
Today is day 10 of the challenge, and I am feeling Fab-You-Luss! While dedicating 90 minutes every day to Bikram is a bit time-consuming, I am loving the mental clarity it provides, and as an endurance athlete at heart, I love a 90 minute kick-in-the-ass. Woot.
I am eating foods that I love, and that fuel me for successful yoga practice (and runs, now that I’m back hitting the pavement, WOOT).
Booze makes practicing Bikram feel like death, so not drinking at all has kept me motivated to return to the sauna each day.
So yeah, here’s to 20 more! Cheers!
So yesterday was MUCH better than my craptastic Tuesday. I got my tire replaced (have to go back today because they didn’t balance them apparently. Thanks, tools!). But I can go over 55mph now! Holla!
Then I got my stretch on at yoga, there was an instructor I’ve never had before and his voice was mega soothing. It was good.
After yoga it was time for Moe’s! YUM! I showered (kind of) at the studio and took my slighty-less-sweaty self to meet the sister, kids, and my dad for some family time 🙂
It was a silly time indeed!
This morning I got my sweat on with a 3 mile easy run
The run felt good, but I was constantly looking at my Garmin. I need to really focus on just taking my “easy runs” EASY. I don’t want to over do it and overtrain…again. I know that I am not going to be nearly as fast as I was last year when I was running all the time, so I need to take that into consideration and not beat myself up over pace. Just focus on getting back in the groove of it.
On another note. I am seeing decent “traffic” on here (decent is a relative term. let me be delusional and think my “page visits” stats are awesome, k?), yet barely any comments. Um…DUH Bee, maybe you should ask people things you want to know/discuss? Derr!
So here are a few questions for ya 🙂 Please talk to me, I want to know what’s up with you..since I stalk a lot of your blogs and think you’re all pretty fuggin’ awesome.
Do you have/use a Garmin for your runs? Opinions on using it for “easy” runs in a training program please!
What is your favorite reality tv show? Do you dvr it or watch it live?
