If you are participating in Monica’s Pile on the Miles, today is the first day! Don’t forget to get your miles in & then log them on the google spreadsheet.
It’s doubtful that I’ll be logging very many miles, but I need some sort of motivation to run. I’m just not feeling it these days and with a few half-marathons on my schedule I need to get some training runs in.
I want to race, I just don’t want to do the work that leads up to the race.
Wednesday after work I headed to the gym to do a little lifting. I found an upper body work out on bodybuilding.com that I felt confident about. There were a few exercises that involved the barbell … I’m not comfortable doing anything with a barbell right now so I googled dumb bell alternatives and felt more confident that I could (and would) complete the entire workout.
I don’t know if I was at the gym earlier, or if it’s because most parents were at home w/ their kids for halloween but the gym was dead.
