There Will Be Running

Even with all the eating and drinking over the weekend, I did manage to work out on Monday with the personal trainer. It was really similar to this Fireman workout. It’s been awhile since I’ve done a crazy hard workout and I can definitely tell I’ve lost strength since I haven’t been seeing my Crossfit trainer. 😦 

This workout kicked my butt and now my forearms are so sore from lifting the 150lb tire that it hurts to drive. I’m going to need something to keep my mind off the pain when I’m in the car.

That should do it.

Monday night, I was desperate for some girl shopping. So I headed out to the Premium Outlets with my friend, Klainie. I don’t have a recent picture of her, so here’s one from my Mexican themed birthday party a couple years ago.

And there was the hub’s 80s themed birthday party a few years before that.

It’s weird, but we wore our hair just like that when we went out shopping on Monday.

I bought a few things at not-so-outlet prices, including a dress from Gap that I wore yesterday ($50):

A watch from NY and Company for 40% off ($16):

(I used to hate big watches, but I love them now. Big watch lovers unite!)

And a necklace from Charlotte Russe ($10) that I’m wearing today:

I kept Klainie out way longer than I expected to but she’s probably rockin’ a few cute new dresses this week because of it. You are welcome for no sleep and new dresses, Klainie.

Last night, I didn’t necessarily feel like running but after slacking all weekend, I needed to get my butt in gear.

Mile Pace Incline
1 10:00 warm up .5
.50 mile  9:41 .5
1200 x2  (3/4 m)  9:41 .5
1000  9:23 .5
800 x2    (1/2 m)  9:05 .5
600  8:49 .5
400 x2    (1/4 m)  8:34 .5
400 10:00 cool down .5

Total miles: 5.75

If you know me personally or have read my blog longer than 2 days, I think you can guess what happened between the random first half mile and the actual speed work. I hate to ruin a surprise, but it rhymes with looping.

I walked 200s between each set, mostly because I didn’t feel like I could run them. The run felt pretty awesome except for the end part where my right heel starting killing me. The new shoes I ordered cannot come in the mail soon enough. If I don’t get them, I’ll have to run 14 miles Saturday morning in my Asics and those start to suck at mile 7.


I like my runs at the gym because I watch shows I would never otherwise watch, like the new 90210, and learn things I never would have known, like how Kelly Lynch is still acting and hasn’t changed her hair in 20 years.

I also broke my bad movie streak with not one, but two good movies. Over the weekend, hubs and I watched Idiocracy.

It’s an older movie, 2006 I think? I mean, it’s stupid. But it’s funny.

And last night, we were up until 1am watching The Fighter.

Amy Adams was great and Christian Bale was ahh-MAZE-ing. It’s crazy how buff he can get for American Psycho and then dwindle down to nothing for The Fighter and The Machinist. Love him. Even though he’s an ass.

What actor do you love that seems like a total dbag off-screen?

Any movies you won’t watch because of a certain actor? (Anything Sean Penn does off-screen makes me want to punch him, so it’s hard for me to want to stare at his stupid face for 2 hours in a movie.)
