So it turns out that my little venture yesterday afternoon was just what the doctor ordered. Coming home last night after a run, pedicure, yoga and a nice dinner I was in great spirits. It is amazing what a little perspective (and nail polish) can do.
The run: I ran over to my friends place through snow falling all the while talking on the phone! Has anyone ever dared to do this? I had my hands-free on and talked with my sister the whole way. At times it was windy and loud for her, but my panting and rhythmic slapping of feet did not come through on the other line. How awesome huh? I think I ran about 3 miles, but I didn't track any of it. It was great.
Pedis: awesome. I went for a festive sparkley blue that turned out more like the exterior of a speed boat but whatever. It is cute.
Yoga: Vinyasa 2...This was a more advanced class, but the only one happening at this time so there was no choice. It ended up being not as hard as I was expecting but very challenging for me. This chick had us twisted all over the place for an hour and fifteen minutes and I am sore today. But good sore. This was at an actual yoga studio, not 24 Hour Fitness, so the class was great. I really want to go back there and might do this more consistently once my half marathon is done at the end of January.
Today's workout: is a speed workout planned for the track. Debating if the track is going to be icy. If it is I'm going to do this on the treadmill. God knows how I'm going to program the machine to do what I want it to do. I'll figure it out. The workout looks hard and I'm kind of intimidated.
In other exciting news, I found another Jordan shot in my pictures from Chicago! Never mind the guy in argyle below, he's got MJ coming out of his cheek! Sweet eh?
