I did it…..

I got up this morning…unfortunately at 4 am, because I had a date with my treadmill! Or as I ALWAYS affectionately call it….DREADmill! I literally hate running on it but I have to more days than not because of hubby’s schedule and mine. I only did 1.61 miles. That’s all time allots for in the wee morning hours….then it’s on to get ready, get the kids going, and out the door by 6 am.

I’m STOKED that I didn’t hit the snooze button for the millionth time!!
I’m getting myself ready to do a repeat tomorrow am. It really was a great way to start my day!!

I finished my day with a CF WOD….

Wish me luck on my am DREADmill running endeavors! 😉

How was your day??

🎶Monday, Monday…Part Deux

Today was a a doozie! Seems like it wasn’t ever going to end! Fortunately, I always have a workout to look forward to. I NEVER sneak a peek at the WOD when they post it on FB. Some people look at it and decide not to go based on movements that they don’t like. I believe that is called cherry picking . I don’t look because I don’t want to psych myself out before I get there. I’ve always been that way..almost 4 years of doing CF, I never look before it’s time.
Today’s WOD..

I was glad to see that there was some running, as I wanted to break in THESE beauties….

My feet and “fankles” look much better from this view! (Fankles = FAT ankles! Yuck!)
I’m usually a Brooks girl but it was suggested at the running store to Saucony. IN LOVE….! I decided to go back to the “traditional” running shoe. I had the Pure Connect which I did enjoy running in. My only complaint is they wear down fairly quickly ONLY because of my type of feet….I am flat footed and a pronator….

I had a mile in the WOD and elected to get on the “DREADmill” and do another mile.

No me gusta (no “likey” in Spanish) DREADmill. I always feel like a hamster on the spinning wheel. In motion…but ain’t going a damn place! But I pushed on through.

My shins are still recovering from DU hell last week AND running in horribly old shoes…
So I spent my evening….
