Today started off with a bang! I got up around 7:15, read some blogs, then got dressed to head out for a quick run. I ate a small protein bar to give me a little energy to work with, drank a bottle of water, and then headed out the door.
My run went as well as can be expected. I haven’t run in a while, so it was hard to get myself motivated to put some miles under my shoes. Ideally, I’d like to be running at least three times a week. Hopefully I’ll be able to keep at it more :). There’s something addictive about running and I’m already pumped to go out again tomorrow!
I ended up running for a little over 30 minutes in a loop around my school. I’m not sure how many miles I covered since my Zombies, Run! iPhone app had had some new developments and I was too eager to go to figure out how to start a new mission. The program has a built in GPS tracking system that tells you your miles and pace. All I know is that I had a good run and was super shhweaatyy by the end! My heart rate was consistently high, so I’m also happy about that.
After that, I went back to my room to grab my gym things and to meet Tiana to let her borrow some workout clothes. We biked on over to the gym to get in a good lifting sesh and to pump mad iron ;).
We had a GREAT full-body workout and I can tell that I’m going to be especially sore tomorrow. Love that feeling!
Kyle also met us at the gym. Hurray for gym dates! I’m so glad that he’s not one of those ignorant guys who scoff at women who do more than just cardio. Kyle has always been supportive in every possible way :).
We ended up walking home since Tiana’s bike had a flat tire, and by the time we got back, we were all starving! I ended up getting an egg white omelet with all the fixings, fresh fruit with some yogurt and cottage cheese, and some black coffee (x2). I also nibbled on some coffee cake. It tastes unbelievably good paired with the coffee. That’s probably why they call it coffee cake haha… What an epiphany!
How have your experiences been with talking to men about lifting?
I can’t wait to take a nice, long shower! Catch ya’ll later!
