Today’s workout included a tempo run in the morning of 2 miles (with a 1 minute walk in between the miles) followed by 20 minutes weight-training. After classes, I decided to complete my morning workout with a 30 minute tread-climber workout and complete some more weight-training. I like working out twice a day, and I especially like running twice a day or completing my workout it all at once. In any case, these all work for me.
Yesterday’s workout included between a 3 to 4 mile run (at the track) followed up by 20 minutes on the elliptical and then 20 minutes Pilates. I incorporated calf raises, butterfly crunches, planks (front & side), and certain yoga poses as well. My run felt great, especially since it was after a rest day.
My Junior year of college is almost over. Time is flying by and I don’t want it to end! It’s just a great experience and I’m learning so much, but there are some benefits of living at home:
-I like running outside much more at home
-I can play with my cat, Athena or Kitty (Athena is her nickname)
-Cooking and baking is possible (enough said)
-I can also use a blender (protein shakes!) and the toaster oven
-Rob lives close by so I can see him everyday
-My car is available for transportation (I don’t keep it on-campus)
-Laundry is easier to complete and less money
-I will be able to read magazines and newspapers when they arrive (instead of at a later time)
That pretty much sums it up.

What movies have you watched lately?
