Running, workouts, interview, etc.

I've been wanting to post all day...but haven't really felt like creating an interesting post. So, this is probably not interesting. Sorry.

Mr. Smith and I went for our Monday run yesterday! Which makes it sound so routine...when in fact this is the first Monday we have ran together. :) Our running schedule is now MWF (did I already tell you this? Hmmm, maybe. Hey, I said I wasn't interesting today.). We ran outside yesterday for a mile, and then went to the apartment gym and ran another mile. Ha! Just kidding. Mr. Smith ran another mile. I ran another 1/3 of a mile, walked 2/10 of a mile, and then ran ANOTHER 1/3 of a mile. Which means that I ran for a total of 1.66 miles...which I think is pretty darn good.

Mr. Smith thinks that we should try to run outside on Mondays and Fridays, and then run inside on the treadmill on Wednesdays. Treadmill runs are easier (no testy inclines to worry about - at least until I set them myself!), so Wednesdays shall be an "easy" day. Of course, he expects me to run a longer distance on Wednesdays. Sigh.

Anyway - running the first mile definitely felt easier yesterday. Running on the treadmill...well, let's just say I was about ready to finish as soon as we got there. But I perservered! Mostly because I was getting kind of into a Katie Couric news story about how young people today are losing their faith (no pun intended) in organized religion. Fascinating stuff!

This morning, I woke up early to do the Jillian Michaels Level 2 workout. This is only the second time I've done Level 2, and it is. so. freaking. hard. But I got through it without stopping! Go me! I now have all sorts of sore arm muscles I didn't previously know existed. My arm could barely hold the hair dryer this morning. :)

In other news...yes, this is a long, boring post...I had my Big Brothers Big Sisters interview yesterday! It went really well, and I'm super excited about it. They have started all my background checks, and they said to expect about a four week turnaround until I'm matched with a Little. I'll keep you posted!

Well, that's about it. Boring.

MWF sounds like a great schedule! :) I keep reading about the 30 Day Shred DVD. I think I am going to buy it on Friday and try it. I can't wait!

Yay! Can't wait to her about the interview :)
