This morning, I did something I've never done. I ran to the gym, did 65 minutes of weights (for my arms, abs and legs), then ran home. It was a total of about 5 1/4 miles round trip run. Here's a before the run picture (don't worry, I didn't run in my socks, I put on shoes).
Here's an after photo. I ran with my backpack (I bought for light hiking days). I needed to bring my towel, keys, phone and some other things to the gym. It wasn't so bad running with it (which I've done before). I survived the busy streets with no sidewalks. It was a great workout! Not many people run to my gym, so I got some strange looks when I came in the door. I think my face matches my sleeves.
Here's my set up when I got home. I took everything off right away and went straight for the cold Gatorade. It was so cold this morning, that my fingers went numb (I knew I should have brought my gloves). Oh well, eventually, I got warm (a few hours later and after a 30 minute hot shower).
20 minutes later, I was drinking hot coffee, trying to get warm. I always watch Parenthood while I drink my Saturday morning coffee and eat my whole grain Cheerios. It's a great start to my morning, after my workout.
Hubs isn't feeling so hot today, so we didn't go hiking. It's some sort of stomach bug, or something. He's slowly feeling better as the day goes by. If he's feeling better tomorrow, we're going to go then.
It was so great to see how you guys are working out this weekend and your plans. I'm such a noisy person, I like to find out as much about my readers as possible. Anything else you want to tell me?
