Half Marathon Training 12/19/13

Another training day in the books. I had Pump and a 3.5 mile run.

Melanie whooped my ass this morning! She came up to me afterwards to give me some pointers on how to maximize my squats and lunges! 

Apparently I've been doing squats and lunges wrong this whole time! She corrected my form and told me to try my squats without weights until I get a comfortable with the proper form. 

Alrighty then! 

Again let me say I HATE squats and lunges with ever fiber of my being!! :)

She teaches a spin class on friday mornings, so I think I'm going to venture into spinning! Still not 100% sure yet! I just don't want to over stress my legs/knees. We'll see! However since spin is on Fridays and that is usually my walking day. This may be a nice substitute for when it's yucky or when I don't want to deal with the cold...like this morning! 

As mentioned before I had a 3.5 miler. And boy I was protesting this run. It was cold, I was grumpy, driver's got to close to me, my shoes were to right, and did I mention it was cold?

I was just a grumpy runner today. My time was horrible, not that I'm concerned about that right now but still...

Public Service Annoucement:
When you are driving and you come across a runner...
MOVE OVER!!! Because sometimes there is not a sidewalk and I don't feel like falling into a ditch. Just saying!

But I finished my run after me bitching and complaining the whole time! LOL! But it's done and I survived! 

Until next time. On the books for tomorrow is a 40 minute or spin...who know what I'll feel like doing!
