Day 3

So the plan this morning was to wake up and go run outside.  Well, I looked out the window and it looked like it was raining (there were some crazy storms last night).  Once I woke up a little more, I noticed it was just really cloudy.  I looked on my phone to see what the temperature was.  73 degrees.  "Oh, that's perfect!" And then I saw what it said underneath it... 94% humidity. Ummmm, no thanks!  It was one of those mornings you look outside and you can see the humidity.  Gross.

AKA... today was a gym day!  Did the elliptical for 45 minutes and went 3.5 miles.  I did the 'random' setting for the difficulty, and went at a faster pace for the first 30 minutes, and then slower pace for the last 15 minutes.  When I got off, it took a second to walk again after being on that machine.  My legs were jello for a few seconds.  I forgot that happened!

So I had some entertainment when I was at the gym - there was a guy who was on a treadmill on the row in front of me.  He was probably late 20s and he was a one of those big solid muscle guys.  I had my headphones in and all the sudden I hear someone singing really loud.  Like really loud.  Yep, it was him.   And a few minutes later, I look up and he's doing hand motions in addition to his singing (mind you, all while running on the treadmill - kind of impressive I must say!).  He did the "Rocky pose" for a few seconds and waved his arms around like he was dancing.  It was hilarious.  It was all I could do to not fall off the machine because I was laughing so hard.  And THEN he came and got on the elliptical next to me and I had to gain my composure so he wouldn't notice me laughing ;)  Good times.

Oh, and the new shoes were awesome :)

Oh, and one more thing - here was a conversation I had with Dee online this morning before I left:

me: yeah. but there are still clouds from the storm last night. its like 94% humidity. so i think today's goin to be a gym day
 Dee: yeah! You should totallly take a spin class :-)
 me: no spin class scheduled for todayDee: bummer! Well if you don't try it at least once during this training I will kick your butt
 me: yes ma'am.Dee: lol it is really good cross training! It's an awesome cardio workout but won't kill your legs like running

.....Looks like that is something I need to add to my to-do list!   I've heard crazy things about spin class.   So I don't know how I feel about this, but in order to stay on Dee's "good side", it sounds like it's gonna happen.  I'll keep ya posted ;)
