The Hamster in the Spiffy Workout Gear

So, today I had scheduled a 6 mile run, but mother nature wasn’t having it (at least outside).

So….I retreated to my gym.  Now, my plan was to do 3 miles on the track and 3 more on the treadmill- break it up.  BUT, that did not happen.  The track felt soooo squishy and bouncy as opposed the to treadmill that I had been running on lately due to the winter weather (not just brrrr but hazardous ice, snow, etc.- the last thing I want is an injury!).  SO I ended up doing all 6 on the track.  It was not bad at all.  I just zoned out and listened to my ipod.  OK, the only issue was counting the laps.  I wanted to run a 10K (6.2 miles).  The track was 12 laps to a mile.  So….I needed to run 74 laps.  WoW!  I didn’t realize the total until I calculated it now.  So what I did was I had 3 hairbands on my right wrist.  I then kept count only of each mile and switched a hairband to the other wrist.  Once the three were on my left I was half way done.  Then each mile moved them back to my right.  Clever, eh?  For each mile, sometimes I counted 1-12 but other times I counted 1-6 then back down 6-1.  I know…mind games.  A track is nuts..I felt like a hamster.  OH and, yeah, I may or may not have refueled with the following…

Anyway,  onto the spiffy workout gear part…I think it surely speaks for itself… 😉

Lately, I have been LOVING a plain white v-neck Hanes men's t-shirt. They are long and I really like 'em! Inexpensive too!

Oh, and another thing I am obsessed with lately (of COURSE an accessory to my K-cups)

YUMMM…pure heaven!  Anyway, I am currently watching “Craigslist Killer” on Lifetime.

How are you spending your weekend?
