Ok, how do you feel like running?

Dear people, I'm planning playlists for this upcoming week's running.

New challenge

Most distance in 30 days

Game over

Congrats Simonji.
new challenge coming up soon.

ps. Simonji, how unfit are you really? With close to 900 completed km?

Thursday, June 12, 2008

Come on people

You can beat me, and Simonji seems to have completed today's run. There's no reason you can't win this challenge!

I've had an incredibly long day. So glad it's over.

No run for me today, but that brisk walk yesterday wowee.
I feel the burn still.
I'm already thinking my behind is getting a little higher?
As in perkier.

Perhaps I can soon throw away my favorite ass enhancers, Oroblu's Shock-up with Brazilian effect!

How are you doing there people?

Be with baby
Work a little
Work out
Take other kids to swim school
Go to party

tell me your lists. if you can after having viewed the shock-up

I think I lost you all. That's ok. I'll be writing this for myself, to stay sane. just that last sentence proves it's already too late!

Ran yesterday, but not today. Yesterday was good, I felt strong. it was easy.
today I have a massive cold and am quitting breast feeding.

But I don't feel sick and when life gives you melons, you'd better enjoy them.

So yesterday I didn't run, but watched babies and saw my friend Lotta. But today I ran and it went well and I'm happy about that pouch for the Nike+ thing so I can run outdoors with regular non-Nike+ shoes and still get valuable help and cheers from Lance Armstrong.

I've also created a program for us, ladies.
Are you with me? Would you like to start tomorrow or Saturday?

I've never experienced runner's high. When suddenly it's so easy to run that you don't really have to think about it.

At a recent dinner we discussed this and sounded like 13-year olds discussing orgasms.

"I think maybe it happened to me once".

"It's happened to me, it was the greatest."

"I've never even been close. I don't think I'm ever going to experience it."

One friend described it as feeling your head floating through air.
She'd experienced it, but only after running so hard she really thought she'd die.

Have you experienced it?
I ran so hard today (for me), I was sweating more than I have in years. I ran 3 km. You can laugh now.

And you need to know that 24-K's Don't Go There is the best running song for unfit people. You can't be still while hearing it.

Today marks an important change for me - friskis&svettis are closing their baby sitting services for the summer. And next week they're closing all together, for a brief renovation project. This means I have to start running outdoors, without the help of the friendly helpful treadmill.
I'm scared.

No running today, it was a rest/recovery day after all that running. But I did take two long walks with stroller and baby. And friend.

I tried to convince my friend to start running with me, but she said she had no motivation what so ever. Or time. She already looks good and she's pretty healthy. I had nothing to say. I hardly know why I'm doing it myself, I just have a strong feeling I will eventually love it. I want to be strong and fast and lean. Untouchable.

Also bought a pouch to keep that Nike+ thing in when I'm not wearing my special Nike+ shoes.

I was going to run tomorrow, but Lotta asked for help for the first time ever, and I'm so excited to get to see her again.

You'll all have to run for me.
Tell me how you're doing/what you're doing/ what you're doing instead of running. Pile it on!

Sunday and Monday

I went to the gym both yesterday and today.
Yesterday, with the kids. I felt almost guilty for bringing the kids, don't they move enough?
But they liked it so much, Vanja went to three classes in a row.
Joel only to one, Family workout.

And in between that, I managed to run.
I love the treadmill, I need it, with its friendly display of time, incline and speed.
I think I'm getting stronger, but it's still pain. Though I love pretending I'm strong and sweaty like Linda Hamilton. Or Clarice.
You hear what decade I'm still living in.
Yes, that would be a different millennium.

Today I brought only one kid to the gym and discovered one of the benefits of headphones - you can't hear your baby scream.

I did my workout and then picked her up. I think Niki screamed for perhaps 5 minutes, in the arms of kind babysitting ladies. Turns out all she was asking for was a mashed banana, she just couldn't verbalize it. But thanks to the powers of my psychic mind, I could give it to her and put an end to the screaming. Unfortunately, mashing the banana meant no time left for weights.

oh well.

I ran to Kylie, over and over again. try it!
