The Name Game


Yesterday
UBW, moderate weights on the Bowflex for circuits - 6 sets, 20 reps, lat tower, chest presses & flys, upright rows, and kickbacks, bench dips ( but did 6 sets/10 reps of those).

Food was off on Monday. I have a list a mile long of all that went downhill with the food. 'Nuf said. I did much better yesterday.

I'm back at work already!!!! They let go of one of the techs who was still on probation. She said she knew she wasn't "getting" the job so she had been looking elsewhere


Today
Activity: Run
Date: 08/01/07 09:44 AM
Distance: 3.11 miles
Time: 0:32:44
Speed: 5.7 mph
Pace: 10' 31 min/mile
Calories: 293


I ran up the hill and beyond. There's the hill that I've been running up that has a pretty steep grade, but there is more of a hill climb after that hill, so I decided to tackle part of it. The hard part is that there's still more hill after that, and I haven't even tried that yet. It's tough but I figure if I can can conquer those hills, most other runs will be a piece of cake. I think I had mentioned before that one of my neighbors said that the Marines have been known to run up those hills for training...



I think I'll be ready for my 8 mile run this Saturday.

Guess what??? It's time for the list of winners for: "NAME THAT ARTIST /BAND/COMPOSER/MUSICIAN/ETC." For those of you who haven't played yet, it's pretty simple. I title my blog posts with song titles. Be the first to correctly guess who recorded/performed the song, post your answer under "comments," and if you are correct, the glory is yours.

Fingers crossed for the 8-mile run this weekend!!! Sounds like you are ready for it though.

YAY for the hill work and for getting back on track with your eating so quickly!!!

Evelyne said...

Wow, I can barely run on level ground. You ARE amazing! Good luck this weekend! Great job on the workout! Eating is the hardest part. Sending some of my good vibes your way!

Hi Irene...I can't believe I've known you for this long and NOT visited your blog. I am sorry...very cool place you've got here! WOW..awesome job on that run. Perhaps you should be training the Marines??!!

As for guessing the song titles and artists...I pretty much suck at that. I am the person who thinks they are saying one thing in the song and I am normally totally off. Enjoy your day...continue kicking ASS!! Love ya girl, Dede
