Day 6 of training: 77 days to go...
I went to my weight watcher meeting today and despite my new training program and sticking to plan pretty well this week - I managed to GAIN almost 2 pounds. Really? I mean, was that necessary? Sooooo annoying but I'm not going to let that get me down. By May 2nd, I'll be thinner no matter what the scale said today! Sigh. Still annoying.
Anyway, today was a rest day - I have to tell you, I think I'm going to like running because I went to the gym to "cross train" - and while I promised myself I was going to honor the "no run" on rest days rule (I totally get the whole, "your body needs to repair" thing and that you can risk injury if you don't rest...) but, I found myself turning my fast walk on the treadmill to warm up, into a jog and then finally a pretty good run for a few minutes. I'm a rebel, what can I say? Probably at this level of training, It's not that big of a deal but I can see how further down the line - it could be tempting to overtrain.
Part of the reason I wanted to run today was because of the new "running" play list I created on my I-Pod! Song after song of fun to run to music:
Here's a few of the songs I have on there, what songs do you work out to? Would love to know because I like to mix it up.
Born To Run - Springsteen
Gotta Feeling - Black Eyed Peas
Bad Romance - Lady Gaga
Ray of Light - Madonna
Beautiful Day - U2
Man In Motion (St. Elmo's Fire) John Parr (this song always puts me in a good mood... reminds me of my youth and my sister and I drunkenly over singing this song dramatically at a family BBQ a few summers ago.)
Let's Get It Started - Black Eyed Peas
Paradise City - Guns n Roses
Oh, and I got the pink socks today! i worked out before they arrived but I can't wait to check them out - lol.
Have a happy Saturday and thanks for reading this. I appreciate you being on this thing with me and your support!
