Ooooh yeah. It’s thirsty Thursday baby. Just got outta work.. hit up the gym for a nice sweat sesh.. and it is time to quench the thirst.
Yes, I am quite spontanuous and adventurous these days. Drinks.. on a work night. Yeah. I am going to have give a big old PASS to that one. Unfortunately, a Friday morning headache and an extra fatigued body and mind.. certainly does not mix well with a classroom full of 8 year olds… who talk.. constantly..
So, I am going to kick back.. and crack open a can.. er.. bottle.. Um.. sip water out of a straw, thank you very much!
But WAIT.. I have some super excitng news. CHECK THIS OUT!
Mmmmhmmm. Those are tons of little coupons in my “Caught Ya!” jar. Perhaps students are trying to be nice to win a coupon.. but who cares?! They are STILL being nice. Hopefully.. they will realize that it isn’t so bad to be a good friend! 🙂
Anywho – Thursday, Thursday.. what a lovely day you are. Just one day away from Friday.. an even better day. Just two days way from the weekend.. the two BEST days of the week.
I must take you back to Wednesday though – because I attended a PHENOMINAL Body Works class. There was a sub.. so it was new. And I L O V E D it… (with a capital L-O-V-E-D!!!)
It was different then any of the other body works classes I have attened.. and more my style. Not a lot of breaks.. constant on the go. The best part was the way in which the instructor planned the exercises. They were done to the songs. During the verses, there would be slow counts on lifting (up 2 , down 2, or 3.. or 4, super slow).. then during the chourses, there single counts. FAST.
Same move. WHOLE song. SORE Cait today 🙂
Today.. has been a mix mash of events.. some things.. well, just not quite right…
I can’t find my stickers, so I have been handing out THESE babies..
What? Halloween is COOl year round. Haven’t you heard? It is the cool thing to do!
No one is complaining. I’ve got kids sportin’ pumpkins and candy corn with PRIDE! Thumbs up to Halloween!
Another big old thumbs up to the finals countdown:
16 full days of school. 4 half days. (Let’s pretend I haven’t been coutning down since 50.. okay? COOL BEANS.)
I am really counting down to my trip.. because I leave on the same day we get out of school. San Francisco lovin’! I am thankful for all of your suggetions.. and will probably have tons more questions as trip nears.
After my muscle rockin work out yesterday, I was TOTALLY all about cardio today at the gym.. and had an itch to run. It has been POURING for what seems like years here in CT. But this afternoon, something miraculous and unscheduled happened.
It stopped raining. And the sun came out. I checked the weather.. no rain insight until 7pm. You know what that meant.. I was hittin’ the pavement! Wahoo!
It felt great to be outdoors. And since my garmin was dead..(had no plans on running outside, so I didn’t charge it…) I was running without pace attached to my left wrist (though I did wear my polar hrm). Now – it wasn’t sunny during my run, infact it got kind of dark and scary towards the end.. but I ran for 50 minutes and walked for another 10..without getting wet at all!
Of course, I wanted to know my final distance, so I plugged it in to Mapmyrun when I got home..and this is what I got:
Total Miles: 5.91
Total Time: 50:00
Average Pace: 8:24
Not to shabby. I enjoyed rockin my run without the Garmin too!
How do you feel about running Garmin free (if you have one)?
Had any fantastic new work outs lately? If so, please share 🙂
