Something In The Air

Body weight LBW circuits- Squats, lunges, calf raises. 6 sets, 30 reps of squats & calf raises, 6 sets, 12 reps for lunges.

Feeling DOMS , mostly in the biceps.

We had nosebleed seats at the game last night, but it was still fun to get out. The Padres won. I managed to get home at a decent time. Kind of a quiet day on the home-front. Everybody here is passing around a cold so I had to go out and get some decongestant. I totally understand why they keep track of how many OTC drugs a person can buy with pseudoephrine, but it still feels strange to have to give your name to purchase it. As of right now, I'm the only one not feeling the cold that's going around here, and I hope it stays that way.

I was summoned for jury duty AGAIN. It has been way less than two years since the last time, BUT it's an entirely different court, so I have to report... Yay me.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at PhotobucketNow, let's talk about "first times" There are some people who I cyber know who are doing great things, and they deserve some big props! Ironically, both their blogger names have "2 be" in them... First is blogger Chantal2befit, who ran in her first half marathon, the Philadelphia Distance Run Half Marathon, and blew away her expected finish time by around 15+ minutes, even with knee issues! I have some serious catching up to do if I want to keep up with her! Next is Barbie2be. She has signed up through Team In Training to participate in her first marathon... IN ROME, ITALY! How cool is that? I'm very excited for these two ladies!

Peace

Dangit...I want to be called for jury duty!!! Everyone else but me.

Wash your hands a lot and eat foods high in Vitamin C! My running coach suggests Wellness Formula by Source Naturals to boost the immune system. He says he hasn't had a cold of flu in three years.

Is it federal court this time? A lot of my friends have been called up for U.S. District Court jury duty lately. Me? I get called in during December like clockwork for San Diego duty...though this year may be different due to my address (and DMV records) change.

Thanks Irene! Honestly, you would have blown past me if you ran this race. It was cool, flat, and fast. One of the fastest half marathon in the country. I got lucky I guess. ;)

Now Rome, Italy...I would have loved to do that if they have the half! Might not be good for my knees though with all those cobblestone roads.

Saw your pics at the runningskirts website! You look awesome!

Katie,
You wanna go for me??? Heh... I'm hoping I don't get sick, either!

Dori,
Since I work for a doctor's office, I feel like I wash my hands constantly... It's still great advice, though!

Last time it was Superior Court. This time it's Federal. Hooray.

Chantal,
You're welcome! You did really well for your first half marathon! Thanks for the heads up on the runningskirts.com site. I didn't even know they posted it!
