Oh, Monday. You always come too quickly.
My weekend flew right by. I have come to the decision that all weekends should be 3 days. Who do I talk to about this?
At least I got the week off to a decent start with a good workout this morning. I’ve been feeling pretty weak running hills lately, so I decided to do a slow treadmill run with lots of inclines built in.
It looked a little something like this:
Phew! This was a lot tougher than I thought it would be, but I guess it’s a place to start with the whole hill situation. I figured it couldn’t hurt to alter my routine and see if there’s any impact.
I followed it up with Jackie’s Upper Body and Abs portions to the Total Body Circuit. I did the whole thing on Friday and concluded that I hate doing lunges and squats most of all in any strength training routine. I don’t like any of it, but I just dread the lower body work. Yes, I know it would probably help me with the hill running situation, but I’m taking baby steps.
Thank you, Dr. Leo Marvin, for changing my life.
This morning, I’ve just been plugging away at work. I’m a little stressed because I make my big debut in Washington, D.C. next week, and I don’t want to look like a fool. Study, study, study!
Also, in a rather unfortunate turn of events, I didn’t bring any business attire with me from Richmond to Michigan, so I don’t really have anything to wear next week.
I have a pretty hard time finding anything that fits me well, and I kind of want to class it up so these people take me seriously. My solution was to buy a couple of inexpensive dresses at Marshalls and then take them to the tailor. Hopefully, she’ll be able to alter them before I have to go without breaking the bank.
Double cross your fingers for me!
Two questions today:
How are your hill-running skills?
I used to run up 2 huge hills all the time in my neighborhood last summer, and I kinda loved it—like I was kicking some serious butt when I did it! But since then, not so much.
Do you have many things altered?
I’ve only really gotten jeans hemmed, and a dress or 2 here and there. But if this works out, it may be my new go-to for work clothes!
