Treadmill - Monday, August 9
Curse my insane and busy life that does not allow for me to take the day off after running that horrible half marathon. Hill programs wait for no one. I had received my shipment of running skirts in the mail. PSYCHED! Then I realized I order the running skirts (brief) vs. the athletic skirts (shorts) and they don't freaking fit. Too small. Some of the ones I ordered aren't available in the athletic style in my size so I'm totally bummed.
Threw on my orange flowery skirt (no pic today, I forgot) and we headed out to the gym. Hot, crowded, etc.
Back to my Aerobic program #6 - seemed the least heinous option for post-race training:
Actually wasn't totally horrible until I was getting close to the end. But, finished, and with (in my opinion) pretty decent pace (all things considered).
Had some time so did another 15 minute jog. After a hill program jogging with no incline seems like cheating it's so easy.
Random "fitness" related... Remember that a lot of what makes my gym time better is fun, bright things? Here something I picked up years ago that I get to use every day. Cute, awesome AND practical :)
