Warning: Boring Blog

Please forgive me. I drank away a few too many brain cells on Friday night. But it was worth it. Wine is goooooooooooooooooooood.

I had to change my weekend running plans. I was going to run "Back Bay" with it's nice hills and beautiful views. And hopefully bump into Cara. But my legs were KILLING me from Bikram. Yes... sore muscles from yoga. This class is not just stretching, there are some serious strengthening exercises. I thought to myself "Self, you run a lot. Your legs should NOT be sore from yoga." But they were. Really sore. Still sore. Anyway, there was no way I was going to attempt the hilly run for 7 miles. So I stuck to my nice, oceanfront flat path. For being flat, my times sure sucked. It was a little windy on the way back and I'm sore - that's my excuse.
So there.

Miles: 7.04

I've decided that wine is good for you. Good for your heart, and less filling than beer. I've given up trying to rid myself of wine drinking during the week.

My goal last week was to replace one meal with a salad...and I did it. I didn't work out, but I ate one salad everyday...just wait, maybe I'll be the one to bring Bikram yoga to my town!!! Sounds painful, but in a "hurt-good"way!!!

On the side note, I got an iPhone for Christmas and I still don't know how to work the iPod bit on it, and I'm sure I'm not using it to its potential, but I am crazy for it!!! Good luck with yours!!!

You are a goal-oriented person.
I dig that. Hopefully, you'll get through all of them this week. Good luck!

Boring blog ? Never. Throw up a few more of those mud pictures for a little added spice ! :)

Marcy said...

LMAO Anthony has a point. When a post becomes boring (it's not BTW), just slap up a nice piece of man steak or some huge chichicitas and everyone is happy LOL

Glam said...

Love the goals for the week. I must, must try Bikram. Sounds intense! I'm all about painful exercising experiences!

I'm jealous of your gorgeous walking path. It sounds so peaceful.

Jess said...

That's still a good time for 7 miles! You're so tough on yourself, sheesh.

Good luck with the week's goals!

Amanda said...

no drinking all week...are you sure you can handle that? I mean that's most of what seems to make your posts highly amusing. Just kidding, from what I can tell you will do anything you set your mind to with great gusto!

Sarah said...

Good goals! And wine is totally good for you! It prevents heart disease!

Bikram kills my muscles the first few times I go back too. I've also given up trying to give up my vino...it's a no-win situation!?!

Cara said...

I ran out of time to run there. Maybe next week we can see each other.

Lily on the Road said...

Must check out Bikram, sounds serious!

good luck with the no-drinking, yikes, I feel like an alcoholic with a running problem! LMAO!!!

7 miles is awesome no matter if it was hilly or flat. Nice work. Did you see you won something over the weekend at Runner's Lounge? I'm wondering how we get the abs to go along with the belt. :D

Nitmos said...

No drinking? Wine is just a fruit after all.

Every runner needs a few boring weeks in the schedule. Can't be all wine (!) and roses (interesting trails).

Tammy said...

Hey, at least you ran the miles.

You could have used the soreness as an excuse to be a couch potato all weekend.

I need to find a Bikram class and try it out!

Brianna said...

Good luck with your goals! I like your Plan B of running the oceanfront path. I wish that could be my Plan B!

Nice job on the 7 miler! I could only imagine what it would be like to run along the ocean front... snow piles will have to do for now!

Jess said...

nice job on the run!
