This morning I dragged myself out of bed at the crack of dawn to get to the gym for an easy 30-min run. I don’t like running when it’s dark-ish, so I ran on the treadmill. My town has a lovely new rec center with awesome equipment and a great overall vibe. The designers strategically placed equipment so some machines overlook the pool, basketball courts, etc., so my chosen treadmill overlooked the lap pool. It’s totally motivating to watch swimmers and imagine myself rocking the swim during my triathlon.
Tomorrow I’m planning on waking up early again. This is coming from a person who wakes up literally 10 minutes before she needs to leave the house in the morning. I guess I just love getting my workout over with in the morning before work. Sure, I’m a little more tired during the day, but it’s nothing compared to how exhausted I am at 5:00 p.m., staring a 3- or 4-mile run in the face. Anyway, the class of choice in the morning is spin. I’m a little nervous since it’s new for me–but mainly I’m not looking forward to the sore booty. It’ll be a great workout, though. And then after work, I’ll be heading to yoga–which I’m not too tired to do since it’s a slower-paced workout.
In other news, I’m actually going to try to plan my meals this week. Crazy if you know me at all. I’m not what you can call terribly organized at anything other than work tasks. Tonight’s menu is chicken burritos, Cafe Rio style. Tomorrow? No idea. 😉 Wait! Pizza (sort of like this with caramelized onions, arugula, pesto, and mushrooms).
Have you ever tried spin?
What’s your favorite type of pizza?

First of all, I love the name of your blog. French fries are the bomb. Second of all, I have surprised myself recently by enjoying a run in the morning. I started doing it because I’m in Florida and it’s already hot as heck here. I am not a fan of the treadmill, so that means hitting the pavement in the morning. I like getting it done early, I feel great all day long. 🙂
Thank you! I don’t think I could ever give up french fries. I’m glad you enjoyed your run! Doesn’t it just feel awesome to know that you’ve already gotten a run/workout in before the craziness of the day starts? 🙂
