Putting a Ring on My Crazy: 2/16
So here is the deal folks, 40 more lbs would bring me down to 240, a weight that I haven't seen since Clinton's first term. I'll be there before the end of this year, injuries and illness be damned. So, yesterday, I decided to just let my crazy run wild!
Yesterday's workout was a two-a-day. I got up around 4am and decided to run to the gym. I did the 1.63 mile run in 14:31.32 for an 8:54 pace. The streets were clear, the sky was dark, and the air was cool, and a great time was had by all (and by all I mean . . . me). I did mile 1 in 9:22.41and the last
.63 in 5:08.93 for an 8:10 pace.
After my run, I went to the 30/30 Spin & Strength class. I had to cut out 15 minutes of the Strength portion in order to get to work (hey, they pay me, so I feel the obligation). This was my first Spin Class, and it wasn't bad at all. I worked up a good sweat. And, it was good to change up from running all the time. I would prefer to be out riding my bike, but you know, it is nice not having to worry about some NASCAR fan, out to prove that he's a better driver the Danica Patrick, on his way to work, flying down Western Blvd., and turning Franken-bike and I into a mix matched jigsaw puzzle. The Strength portion of the class that I stayed for was Push Ups, One Legged Squats, planks, some jump rope hops, etc. After the class, I jogged to Hiroko's work as a cool down, and picked up the car.
