Someone Agrees With Me

Today's after work workout was 5 sweaty miles at Ghetto Renew.
1st mile was 1.0 incline and a 13 min/mi. Then I stopped and got the fan. There was a girl working out on the treadmill next me me and she said I had the right idea with the fan. I told her that I left a note the other day to turn down the temps. She said that she didn't think that they care about what the members think. I then told her that I complain on twitter a lot about this place and on YELP but the owners has his friends post positive reviews to counteract the bad. (I actually see that the took down the previous location and replaced it with a new one that has no feedback - I'll change that!) She asked how long I was a member and I said about a year. She thought that it was funny that I have been a member so long and that I still hate it. Anyways, we chatted a bit more and someone agrees with me that ghetto renew is ghetto.

I also shared the fan with her. Cuz we bonded.

My next 4 miles were -3.0 to +1.0 incline. I pushed myself the last 2 miles to go faster then 5.0. I did 5.5 for one mile and kicked it up to 6.0, 6.3, and 7.0. I know a scheduled easy run shouldn't be speed work but, ya know, I felt good and so I did it. I really wanted to do another few more miles but I will save that for, maybe, tomorrow night.

I gave my legs some good stretching and foam rolled over my IT band. My left one is more painful then the right.

Do you ever get chatty with people in the gym? I usually don't because, well they are there, hopefully in their zone in their workout, which is my purpose - of going in to get into the workout zone. Today, I bonded over the use of the fan, so I allowed the chat.

Happy Birthday To Me

Happy Birthday to me. You know how I celebrated the start of my birthday on midnight at work? (I actually am not taking my birthday off. Why can't all birthdays be on a weekend day?) Burpees, pushups, squats, crunches. One for every year. So, I did 22 of each. Ok, 24. ;-) Sunday, for the BFs birthday, we had a shot of Wild Turkey. And our birthday shot (which I found out Vista Bar doesn't do free birthday shots - shame on them! Looks like Neurolux is my preferred birthday celebration location because I know they give free birthday shots) made me want to really enjoy another, but I refrained. Actually, I think this weekend, I will be taking in a cocktail or 4 at the  Modern . I also made sure to sign up for lots of restaurants deals for birthday goodies this year because I like being a cheapskate. I like it when places give you a week (or all month) to use the goodies and not just on your birthday day. I don't want to go for a free b-day meal alone on my birt

Quarantines and Earthquakes

Hi. How are you and your loved ones doing? Everyone safe and healthy? I hope everyone is illness free and has plenty of TP. :-) Don't remember where I found this at The Stay at Home order isn't really affecting me too much. We work from home anyways, so its actually making us work more. I enjoy my house and my bed and I even signed up for Amazon Prime so I can watch more then what is on Netflix. We can't go out to eat in restaurants and we can't thrift store shop. I know, I know #FirstWorldProblems But I am thankful that I am in a relationship where I enjoy being around the person I am in a relationship with. From a Buzzfeed post a bit ago I have been ordering a Doordash or 2 a week. Doordash is a good thing and yet a bad thing. I can scroll and scroll and think about food, and even order it. It caters to this Taurus a little too well. I enjoy being at home, I like to eat, and I can make sure I tip the driver and make sure the restaurants can keep the light

New Race Plans

Ugh. Is there anyone that does not have a canceled race yet? I am seriously glad that we are all together in the pain of this. I got word on Thursday that my Race to Robie Creek half marathon is canceled and won't be happening the 3 Saturday in April. I am sad because this is the only race I care about all year. My email about the race But then I got an email for my St. Patty's Day 5K on Saturday the 14th is still on, but without water stops and post-race snacks. My email from Thursday That is totally cool. I never drink water in the middle of 5Ks so its no big deal to me. On Friday night I was prepping for the morning. I decided to confirm on the website the start time. Website Notification Oh, look. Its canceled. Did I get an email about this? It went to my spam folder so it was there and they did let us know. They were gonna still mark the course, so I did appreciate that. I had pulled my green race outfit out of storage and I just purchased a new gre
