Easy Monday and thoughts

Life is too short to spend not running
Workout. I made it to the local Y after a quick shut-eye after work.  I was lazy today. I didn't want to stand and wanted to rest on my heavy posterior. Hence, I hopped on the stationary bike and rode away.  I got the bike set to intervals and at level 2. Halfway into the ride, I set it to level 3, and about 2 minutes left to the workout, I set it to 4.  And YAY! There was no "One's Life to Live" but Dr. Oz.  I am not so sure about Dr. Oz, but at least, he is moving on to the next segment all the time.  I can't count this toward my 1000 miles ... but here are the numbers for today's workout. 
Miles rode: 6 miles
Time taken: 23:43 minutes

Calories burned: 133 calories.
After the bike riding, I did some strength-training on my quads and hamstrings on the machines. Overall, it was a decent session.

What's Cooking. I went home and made some chicken salad for dinner tonight.

Today's Highlight:  I got my April's issue of Runner's World!!!!!

Thought for today.  It occurred to me that my mind may be stronger than my legs.  Today, I gave some thought about my running and I realized that a lot of times, I wanted to continue running but the legs are not cooperating.  I am crossing my fingers and toes so tightly that my knee will be up to the 3-mile run tomorrow.  Life is too short to spend not running.


  1. How do you know Luling is in Louisiana? No one knows that. Not even people who live 20mins away.

  2. I agree, life IS too short not to run! My mind always wants to run longer than my back does...err. Haha. Keep up the great work!! :)

  3. Megan, I used to live in Ruston, LA and I went to Tech. My friend in graduate school gave me a nickname, "Asian Cajun" because I love Cajun and Creole food and would always try to cook them at home. Everyday is a good day for some gumbo, etouffe, jambalaya, and shrimp creole.

    Jill, let's hope your back and my knee toughen up soon so we can continue to do what we enjoy doing.

  4. Amen to my mind being stronger than my legs....always!
    Your doing great!
