a little negativity...

...... goes a LONG way!

Not much to ramble about today ~ other than a great midweek short run last night ~ 3 miles with a big, fat negative split on mile 3. I mean BIG. Like almost a minute per mile negative BIG.

Yeah, that's what I'm talkin' about.

Again, still just patting myself on the back for getting a midweek run done, so indulge me for a while until this becomes a habit, will ya??

I'm in a bit of grief that I don't think that a trip to weight lifting class will materialize tonight ~ darn kids ~ but I am plotting to see if I can work from home tomorrow and squeeze it in. We'll see what happens. I love me some weight lifting....gotta have it!!!!!!

It's also nice to see the mileage numbers in my side bar actually increasing for a change. Apparently this happens when you actually start running ;)

Kids, they get easier as they get older. But, more expensive.

Glad to see your running mileage go up.

Choosing kids over lifting, NEVER!!! ;)

Woohoo! Nicely done, chica. Hope you get your weight training in. It does make such a difference, doesn't it? I love it too.

Wow, nice having negative splits! One more mid-week run. You can do it. I'm with you on the weights. Love me some serious iron.

Negative splits are at the top of my list of favorite things (right next to margaritas, but it's pretty much an either or thing.) Congrats and good luck with squeezing in the weight workout.

Good job on the run AND the negative split. WooT!

Nat said...

God that whole rule about having a "responsible" adult around SO gets in the way of my fitness. You know?

LOL.

You're kidding about the weights right?

Shosh said...

YEAH on the mid week run!! I hope that you get your weight training in today and what a treat it would be to work from home.

Keep watching those miles go up!

Awesome, awesome mid-week run. I think I'm more adicted to Body Pump than anything. Absolutely love it. Even thinking about going to the new release event at the club next week. Sick, right?

I can see that you've gotten two Body Pumps in since you wrote this. Yee ha!
