Steve and I went to the track this morning and ran a 5K. Yesterday was my favorite workout, today was my least favorite workout. Blech. I got wicked stomach cramps in the last mile, too. Thought I was going to have to pull over and puke at one point.
My watch quit after about a mile and a half so I have no idea what my time was. I think Steve finished in 28:00 or 29:00, so I’m guessing I was around 36:00 or so. I should have told him to bring a book so he’d have something to do to pass the time while he was waiting for me. Ha!
Obviously, this is something I really, really, really need to work on.
Update: Steve ran a 24:55, not a 28:00 like I thought I remembered. Sorry Steve! So my time was probably somewhere around 34:00.
This afternoon also I did some strict presses:
50# x 10
65# x 1
70# x 1
75# x 1 (x 5)
80# x 1 (Fail)
Then later tonight I went to sparring class. I just felt blah all night. My knees hurt, I was tired, my legs felt heavy (actually, my legs are heavy.) We also had to listen to our teacher rant a little about politics tonight. Again. I’m sick of politics. I just want to spar, or learn a form — I don’t want to know what the latest email your lawyer buddies in New York sent you said about Sarah Palin. I really don’t care if you hate the President. I really don’t care if you hate the Governor. I really don’t care what the chicks on “The View” think about the election. I hear that crap every time I turn on the TV or radio or open up the paper. I’m completely bipartisan myself — I detest all politicians equally. Just shut up and vote. That’s what I’m going to do.
