Has everyone heard enough about the nice weather we are having in New York?
Spring may not have officially sprung quite yet, but myself and the rest of the city can’t stop talking about how fabulous the weather has been.
So beautiful that yesterday I was able to get in a lovely 12 minute outdoor run. 12 fairly pain-free minutes until I felt a little tingling in my knees, so I begrudgingly stopped.
My lifting today consisted of some sets of leg and glute exercises. I always second-guess posting my workouts/amount of weight I’m lifting (what are people thinking? Are they judging me? Am I weak?!) But I guess I just gotta “do me” and not worry about it, as you East Coasters always say.
In other news, girls and boys, I’ve officially become addicted to the idea of running a Ragnar Relay Race. I’ve begun my campaign to convince 11 others to join me (the Fit Blog chat last night with our lovely host Michele connected me with lots interested ladies!) I have a couple takers that I know from the “real world” (Hi Lauren!) and am so ready to check this off my to-do list.
I’ve been trying to convince the BF and my roommates to participate. I told them there’s a PARTY after and the medals double as BOTTLE OPENERS! How could you say no to that?!
They said no. I don’t know how.
Regardless, BF says he will drive a van. What a nice guy!
Does anyone else want to join?!
As soon as I can run more than 12 minutes, that is…
Lastly – check out the new exercise article from the New York Times I linked to on my Fitness News Archives page titled: “Exercise as Housecleaning for the Body”. Exciting stuff!
How’s the weather where you are? Did you have a great run today? Anyone else want to run a Ragnar Relay? Speak up, I’d love to hear from you!
