It’s funny and I know I’ve said this before. When I’m about to try something new, I rarely wake up knowing that this is going to be the day. I had my breakfast this morning, set up my Google Reader (will talk about this in a little bit), but on my shoes and then thought today I’m going to really push it with my sprints. So I did my warm up half mile and got ready mentally for it. What I’ve been doing with my sprints is go from one telephone pole to the next, rest to the next telephone pole, and then repeat. I’ve been able to repeat that ten times in one set. Today I sprinted the distance of 2 sets of telephone poles and then rested the distance of 1 set of telephone poles. I did this 6 times and it wiped me out. I tried jogging back and while I was able to do most of it, I had to take some breaks. My calves were on fire. So glad I took an extra cool down time just to make sure everything was stretched out. During the day they were not too bad so that’s a great sign but I’d be lying if I was looking forward to doing it again on Friday. Am I going to do it again on Friday, you betcha!
Ze Google Reader! Love it! I have a few favorite blogs I like to track but get tired of going to each link and going through my bookmarks to get to the link. I’ve known about the reader for a while but couldn’t make it work the way I wanted it to. Guess I just needed a purpose that it was best for. So I put the RSS feeds in the Reader so that whenever one of the blogs has a new post, it shows up like a new, unread, email. I love it. It simplifies everything and I don’t spend so much time visiting sites where there is no new post.
Today we had a vender join our company and provided a lunch for everyone. It was ok. Pulled pork or tender loin pork sandwiches with potato salad, fruits and veggies, and dessert that looks like it went through preservative valley. I skipped the dessert, had one sandwich and one scoop of potato salad, lots of fruits and veggies, and a half can of Sprite. That was really sweet. So now coupled with the 2 slices of pizza I had tonight, I have to get going on my workout yoga. It will also feel good to stretch the legs a bit.
I’m going to sleep good again.
