Manic Monday

Just like the song says, “just another manic Monday, wish it were Sunday…”

I just wrapped up a killer workout that reminded me that I’m not in as good a shape as I’d like to be!  It was a “run training” class that should have been called “hilly hell” instead.  Holy crap.  I can run 26.2 miles but feel like I’m going to be sick after 4 miles of non-stop hills?  These weren’t small hills either, these were 1/4 mile East Tennessee hills.  But I survived and the weather was so nice it made the run a little easier to bear.

I’ve decided to set a new goal.  I’m turning 30 in June and ironically, my goal weight is 130 pounds.  So 130 by 30!  Has a nice ring doesn’t it?  It doesn’t sound like much since I’m only 135 now, but those 5 darn pounds (plus a few more from time to time) have eluded me for 15 years!!  So it’s now or never.  If I give it my best effort while maintaining a healthy caloric intake and still can’t do it, I’ll accept that 130 is not an ideal weight for me.  I’ll start tracking my progress on the sidebar.
