This morning started in the most annoying way possible… I had to give a speech. I know that I might be the whiniest person on earth right now, but I HATE giving speeches. I get up there behind the podium, my knees start to buckle, my cheeks get red and I start twirling my hair and talking like an auctioneer.
Most people who know me find this hard to believe, because when I’m around people that I know well, it’s hard to get me to shut up.
Not quite the case when I was waiting for my turn to give my speech this morning. When the teacher called my name I was like..
Whatever, it’s over now. And I couldn’t be happier that speech #1 of 1238123 is out of the way. I walked out of that class like..
After class I went to the gym on the way home and cranked out 6 miles on the treadmill for the first time in way too long. I decided to give running another try and I did my New Years Resolution Kick-off Treadmill Workout, with a couple of small variations.
For the interval in which you are supposed to walk 2 min @ 4.0, I switched it up, to walk 1 min at 4.0 followed by 1 min at 4.5. I also only went up to 6.5 as the max speed of the workout. I needed a slow-er running workout to ease me back into the world of running.
Here’s the new workout.
I repeated the workout over and over until I got to 6 miles. The switching up speeds made the workout fly by, and I covered 6 miles in just over an hour. This was a great way to get my fire for running started again!
When I got home, I made a quick ham, mustard and greens sandwich on wheat bread for lunch.
After lunch, Andy and I headed to the dog park in a last ditch effort to wear out our crazy spastic dog.
Lily had an amazing time leaping through 4 feet of snow, and we had a
freezing cold fun time watching her.
Seriously, the snow was so deep. It went way past my boots and up to my snow pants! Needless to say, we were the only crazies at the dog park today.
Lily spent her time at the dog park doing this:
Thankfully, she is now super sleepy, and I’m not mad about it.
We’re laying low now, and Andy’s applying for jobs and I’m soaking in the fact that I don’t have Friday classes this semester. In other words.. TGIT because this week has left me feeling a little bit exhausted..
Somebody get me a class of Cabernet and an episode of Vampire Diaries because I need to get my Ian Somerhalder on.
7 pm, hurry up.
Tell Me: Any fellow Vampire Diaries fans out there? AKA any fellow Ian fans out there? (Because we all know that’s the only reason any of us are putting up with Elena long enough to watch this show)
