Run like Channing Tatum is waiting for you at the finish line.  I don't know about you, but MY Channing Tatum is going to be practically naked (picture him in Magic Mike)!  Yup...that's what I'm gonna do!!

My son came over yesterday and we went to lunch, then he asked me to do his taxes and before I knew it, it was time to pick up Hayley from school.  Then we had a storm come through.  Both Hayley and my dog are scared of thunderstorms, so I couldn't go upstairs to exercise and leave them alone to be scared.  Needless to say, I did not workout yesterday so I will do that workout on Saturday.

Today's workout is a run...and a run...and a run!  lol - Did I mention we're running today?

For time:
   Run 800 meters (.497/mile)
   50 squats
   Run 800 meters (.497/mile)
   50 CrossFit situps
   Run 800 meters (.497/mile) plan.  I do think I will do the run like I have been doing my morning runs.  I'll run 8 blocks/walk 8 blocks, run 6 blocks/walk 6 blocks, run 4 blocks/walk 4 blocks, run 2 blocks/walk 2 blocks.  I've been doing this and then continuing to walk until I reach the 10 minute mark and the last time I did it I had gone .667/miles in the full 10 minutes.  I know I can do this at least once, but I am going to push myself to do it all three times.  I just might (actually I know I will) have to take a longer break before doing the squats and situps, but hopefully it won't be too bad.  So...I figure 10 minutes per run segment and another 5 each for squats and situps.  That's 40 minutes, so I'm going to set a goal of 50 minutes and really push to achieve that.  Y'all wish me luck!  Wouldn't it be awesome if Channing really was waiting for me at the end?  lol - Like I'd do anything with him...I'm a happily married woman for goodness' sake!!  lmao!
36:11!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  SO proud of not only my time, but of ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  So, I did the run 8/walk 8, run 6/walk 6, run 4/walk 4, run 2/walk 2.  Well, my first 800 meters were done before I was to complete my little run/walk thing, so I decided to finish my run/walk thing before stopping on the treadmill.  That put me at .630 miles with a treadmill time of 9:15.  I then did my 50 squats to the perfect song...Rob Zombie's "Never Gonna Stop".  It has the best rhythm to do squats to!!  Then, I got back on the treadmill and did another run/walk thing until it was complete, which brought me to 1.253 miles and treadmill time at 18:29.  I did my 50 CrossFit situps - got in 33 before I had to stop for a quick rest.  My abs must be sore from the filthy 50 on Monday!  Anyway, after finishing my situps, I got back on my treadmill for my last run.  On this one, I had planned to run 8 and walk 8 since that was all I had left, but I just couldn't do it.  So, I ran 4/walked 4, ran 4/walked 4 - I DID technically run 8!  ;)

Overall, I ran 48 out of 96 blocks doing it "my" way - so that's half, AND it's pretty close runs, so I am VERY happy with that!  OH!  ALL of my runs were at 4.9 and all walks were at 3.5.  I'm NOT gasping for breath, so I'm extremely pleased with that!!  :)
