What doesn't kill me makes me awesome instead.  After looking at today's workout, let's hope this is true!  You know the excited picture I posted on Friday...IT'S FRIDAY, BITCHES!!!...well, today's should be - Bitch, it's Monday, now run, Run, RUn, RUN!!!  lol -'s a run day.  Good news though - we ONLY run!  Bad news - we are running a 10k.  For those of you that don't know, that's 6.214 miles.  I looked it up.  Funny story - I never know kilometers/meters to miles, so I always Google it.  Today,when I Googled how many miles is a 10k, one of the answers I came across said "Planning on running a 10k?  Better train and get your body in shape.  A 10k is 6.2 miles and should only take 3-5 minutes to complete."  Ummm....yeah, I don't think so.   That was posted at one of those question/answer sites where the public answers.  Brittany was the fitness expert answerer for that one. Well,'re beyond ridiculous!  Even I know of no one who can run 6 miles in 3-5 minutes.  Do you guys know anyone this crazy-fast?

Well, all I will say is I will try.  I will finish 6.2 miles, but I already know it won't be a "run" all of the way.  Right now, I plan to run my usual 9 blocks for every 1/4 mile - but I'm not sure how long I'll do that.  I do know I'll need to make sure my IPOD player is close to the treadmill, because this will take more than one album to listen to while working out today!  Normally, I say "wish me luck" but today it should be more like "y'all pray for me"!  lol   ;)
OMG!!  I'm BARELY alive!  I over-exagerate, but not by much!  I'm going to keep this short and sweet today because I am EXHAUSTED!

4 miles on treadmill - 71:50 - I ran 9 blocks for the first two 1/4 mile segments only, then did incline walks at 3.5 all the way up to 10 incline for the next 1.5 miles - slowed to 3.3 walks with no incline up until the last 1/4 mile, then I slowed down to 3.0 walk - SO tired!

2.17 miles on stationary bike - 8:50 - I could only stay in the 15.0 to 15.4 speed.  I didn't think I would be able to stand once I finished, but I did and I even made it downstairs to the couch, where I plan to stay for awhile.  :)


  1. Thanks! My ass/upper rear thighs are SO sore! I'm taking aspirin around the clock - hoping to not be super sore tomorrow! That was HARD!!
