I just couldn't get up this morning to run a measly two miles. I am completely whipped. My thighs are in a lot of pain and everything just feels tired, so I made an executive decision to get the two miles in tomorrow after the spin class. I just need a day to rest. I haven't been this sore in a long time and even though I'm loving it (I'm crazy I know), I also realize that I need to give my body time to recoup.
Spin class was amazing yesterday. I went into with thoughts of wanting to go home but once we got started and my nerves went away (even though I've been teaching these classes for a couple of years now, I still get nervous at the beginning, I have stage fright) the class was just awesome. We got in some good sweating and at the end, I got tons of thank you's and this class was harder than Monday's class. Loved it. I incorporated some push-ups at the end and everyone really thought that was neat and it helped pump up my arms some.
On a really good note, I have been trying to get away from 140lbs. for a while now. Yesterday morning before my 5-mile run I weighed right at 140 after the run I weighed 139. I was really pleased with that but yesterday after the spin class I decided to see where I was at and I weighed in at 138. The hubs told me not to get to excited about it and see where I was this morning. So I got up, did my morning duty in the bathroom and before I jumped in the shower, I weighed myself again, I was still sitting at 138. I was so excited. My stomach actually looks better today than it has all week.
Well that's all I have for today. Since I'm not going to run this evening, I've decided to cut the grass. Because of all the rain we have been having, it looks like a jungle in my front yard and we once again look like the red-headed step children of the neighborhood. Taking care of that tonight so we have a pretty yard once again.
Have a wonderful Thursday.
