Good run!

Finally, finally I was able to get in a good run last night. Sure it was only 5k but it has been a while since I was able to comfortably run 5k. I decided to run on the track at the gym instead of the treadmill as I figured my hubby was a big enough boy now to handle the treadmill/elliptical area of the gym all by himself. 😉  It turned out to be a great decision. I don’t know if it was the having to count my laps around the track that kept my mind distracted or the incredibly gross smell of too many sweating men on the track but, either way, I don’t think my dad entered my mind even once, which meant I could breathe and didn’t have that horrific anger ball override my insides. And I had to do my run music less since I was re-calibrating my ipod (my ipod and the treadmills seem to be way off ) and the stupid gadget decided to die on me right in the middle. So lucky me gets to try it again next time! But it was fantastic to get a good run in.

After my run I got a pleasant surprise. My trainer was back!! 🙂 There is nothing like seeing his gorgeous, beaming smile at you that makes you smile just a brightly back and seems to make the whole day a day a sunshine and okayness. (I know that’s not really a word, it just does a good job of describing what I mean. And for us girls–he is by far in my opinion, the best dam looking guys in the gym!) He hauled ass to get home from the city he had to go to. He has the same opinion of the place that I do. Not somewhere you like or want to be. So we are touching base this weekend to see where we are at and when to get started together again. I am excited, so much fun working hard with him.

Yesterday was leg day for me and I have to admit that I sure kicked my own ass! I feel it today, a good feeling. And, shock/gasp, I am starting to not dread or hate those lunges so much! Hubby and I basically went our own ways which was good because he can sometimes hamper my workouts. He doesn’t like some of the exercises we are supposed to do and won’t do them and expects me not to do them either just because he isn’t. Too f-n bad. I am there for results, one being a tight ass! LOL  I guess I will have to be the snitch this time and tattle on my hubby. He, he 😉

Okay, I am off. I have to make an unsceduled trip to may dad’s to deal with a mouse problem there seems to be and to check up on things after all those winter storms they got last week. Take care.

    It always stinks when the iPod (or DVD player, in my case) conks out in the middle of a workout. Makes the rest of it a little tougher. 🙂

    Hell yeah to lunges! You can try side lunges too, they’re good for your quads, especially your inner thigh area. And it’s just overall strengthening of muscular imbalances. Ask your trainer about it 🙂 Hopefully his awesome self can show you.

    I’m glad your run helped you clear your thoughts. Nothing a good run can’t fix, right? Who thought I’d ever say something like that…

    Anyway, I’m glad you had a great work out! I can’t workout with somebody else. Like, I can be at the gym with them and spot them if need be but I’m bad with working out with other people. I have my routines and I have specific things I do at specific times. It just feels like I’m either being dragged back or dragging somebody else back. Which is why I can’t run with somebody else either. Ugh. Too many solo activities! Ah well. More time for me 🙂
