Pile on the Miles from RunEatRepeat starts today. I haven’t started off the challenge very well 😦 When my alarm went off this morning, I turned it off. When my husbands alarm went off he asked me if I was running and I said no, and we both left it at that. Usually he won’t let me say no, but he must not have been up for arguing this morning. I thought to myself that I could just take the boy for a walk this afternoon and we’d both get some exercise in, little did I know, he’s anti-exercise today. I’m considering offering to get him ice cream if we walk to get it. The ice cream place is only about a mile down the street, so we’d get 2 miles or so in. I could wait until my husband gets home, but he has to work late tonight. Nothing wants to seem to work with me. I have to just accept that I have to wake up early to go jogging or walking. I keep thinking I can make it work during the day, but it never does. A.M. it is then.
I’m still trying to get yoga fit into my schedule. I guess I need to just give in and buy a new mat. I also have on my buying wish list: GPS watch and an iPod Nano. I HATE having to carry my phone with me when I’m jogging. The emails and texts and notifications piss me off when they ding in the middle of a podcast. Not to mention, its bulky and heavy and I have to either put it in my bra or in my waistband, neither on which are comfortable. Maybe Santa will be good to me. I’d be happy with either a Garmin 10 or a Nike+ GPS.
I am planning on trying night running tonight, if my husband gets home at a decent hour so we can have dinner early enough to make that happen. Fingers Crossed.
