Dear New Bike, I love you. You're so pretty and ride so well, and I got a steal of a deal on you, which makes you all the more beautiful and wonderful. I'll share more about you on the blog later, but for now I'm just excited to ride you around this week to get used to you. Now I can really prepare for the Irongirl Clermont Sprint Tri! You need a name...what should it be?!
Dear Bob Harper, Your DVD is insane. I haven't done strength training of that difficulty since the last Les Mills BodyPump class I went to, and even that I'm not sure was as hard as this. The calories burn wasn't that high, but I think it's because it was a lot more arm weights than cardio, though you threw it all in there. Dear ankle, you're still hurting me. I went to the doctor and found out I have a peroneal tendon strain (tendonitis). The PA said I could run through the pain, but after my attempt at four miles at goal pace yesterday...that might be trickier than I had thought. Time for lots of ice, rest, stretching, and elevatioin. Dear goal pace attempt, Hm. I had to stop after 3.5 miles of goal pace, which I've never had to do before. My ankle was killing me, and I couldn't run through it anymore. I have this strange feeling that losing that last .5 miles invalidates the entire workout that I did, but I don't think that's the case... Dear Stella & Dot Hostess order, I'm loving wearing all of my pretty new jewelry! I think I've already picked out favorites, but I haven't had a chance to wear you all yet!
Dear weekend, you're bittersweet for me...I'm excited that it's the weekend and Tim is off two days, but at the same time you signify the end of my extended spring break. I've loved every minute of spring break, but it's going to be slow going getting back to work on Monday... Dear Tim, I love you! I had fun at the Yelp event with you last Sunday, and I'm excited for you to come to the next one with me. I hope you're able to take a little time off from studying this weekend to relax. I can't wait until you're done with school for a two month break coming up! Dear Readers, have a wonderful Good Friday and Easter with your family! Do you have any fun plans?
Did you plan a special outfit for Easter?
What's the hardest workout DVD you've tried?
If a doctor tells you you can try to run through an injury, do you still push it or hold back some?
