Trying Something New on Tuesday

Weights & Group Run
This morning it wasn't just gray and icky out, it was dark and raining. Lucky for me, I bought a pair of rainboots two years ago when I first started working at my current job. All it took was one rainy, 3-block walk, and I headed straight to Ebay for some boots. I don't care how silly they may look, I love them!

So, I donned my rainboots this morning, but by 11 or so, the sun was out and it was slowly warming up. Jason and I are planning on running with a group that gathers at a new, local running store on Tuesday evenings for a 4-mile run. So, I was glad to see the sunshine, but it also meant no running at lunch.

This of course means that I hit the weights instead. I did shoulders and abs actually. I'm trying to get all my weight workouts done by Thursday as I won't have access to a gym in Seattle.

Overhead press - 3x6
Upright rows - 3x8
Lateral raises - 3x10
Rear delt press - 3x12
Front to side raises - 2x10

I did the abs workout from Cathe's Kick, Punch, and Crunch.

Dinner will be rather late for us since the run doesn't start until 6 pm. Not sure what we'll even have, possibly scrounge for fast leftovers. If it ends up anything exciting, you know I'll be sure to share.

I'm trying not to worry about eating late and focusing on getting out and enjoying a run in a new way. I've never run with a group before. In fact, I've only run with Jason with the exception of one short run with my sister. I'll be honest, I'm a bit nervous. I know it's supposed to be a fun run sort of thing though - not trying to go fast. I need to keep that in mind. I'm hoping that maybe we'll meet some new people to go run with perhaps. Also, the store is having a few giveaways too. Wish me luck!! I'll be sure to let you know how the running goes tomorrow.

Speaking of giveaways - keep your eyes open for my first giveaway coming up this week to celebrate a very special occasion!!
