Yesterday was workout 7/10. I ran 3 miles in 35 minutes. I was happy with that. My goal when I do my first official 5k is 35 minutes. I’m not too far from that, so Yay me! I’m not ready for a 5K yet, I don’t think, but if I keep going to the gym 4-5 days a week, I will be soon.

I added one of my favorite exercises to my routine yesterday, and I’m feeling the effects today. I use a 12 lb. dumbell, stand in front of the mirror (ew) and do 3 sets of 10 side bends on each side. My PT in Oxford showed me that exercise and let me tell you, it works. But you will be very sore the first week you add this to your routine, so just get the water and advil ready.

Not sure if I’m going to make it to the gym today–if I do, it will be later. I have lots of errands to run, a book to write, and a house to tidy. But I’m going to try to make it, because even though I don’t enjoy going yet, I really do enjoy how accomplished I feel when I’m finished.

Am still looking for more music/CD suggestions to make my reward list. Still not sure if I’m going to buy a new CD for every 5 lbs or every 10. What do you suggest?
