Seizure Dance Moves and Boxin’ with Spongebob!

Great news!  My shins were feeling great today!  So I had no excuse to not go to the gym and do the run I should have done yesterday…even if I didn’t feel like runnin’!

I’m at the gym, I’m getting dressed and I discover I forgot my Garmin watch.  Dangit!  Okay, no worries, I’ll just use my “not so accurate” Nike+ app.  Except, I had taken the sensor pocket off my shoe before we went to San Diego.  Okay, no worries, I’ll just run for 45 minutes and not track mileage.  Except, I would have to pay attention to the gym clocks and I’ve learned that watching the clock while running on a 1/10th of a mile indoor track is TORTURE!!!!  Okay, no worries, I’ll just do Friday’s “speed training” today!  I won’t know the mileage because God forbid the app actually track it accurately but not an issue.  It’s not always about mileage, right?  Right?!?

So..yeah, apparently Thursday’s are a busy day at the gym.  As my luck would have it, it was especially busy on the track.  Yeah, that does not bode well for me when I need to do speed work.  But here we go..some random thoughts…

  • I’m pretty sure that dudes legs are as white as his tank top!
  • I hate running while holding my phone in my hands!
  • I really wish I had my watch, I think I am killing my speed today!
  • Yes, please continue to walk two abreast and swing your arms wildly – never mind all the runners weaving along both sides of you…perhaps you could move it more to the right there?!?
  • 10 seconds until a walk break and I can totally pass that dude…c’mon, give it all you got!!!
  • I might be pathetic because I feel satisfaction rushing past that old dude.
  • Do you honestly expect me to move….you who is running, not walking, in the wrong direction!
  • Not sure what dance moves you call those but you look more like you’re having a seizure.  How about you get off the running track and take your dancing skills to the classroom!
  • Wow, lady..I get that you like to talk on the phone while you ride the bike but must you shout?  I can hear you over my headphones!
  • Oh…dancing man is now gonna box the air as he walks…interesting.  Dude…maybe you should be aware that I can see you!!!
  • I cannot wait until it cools off and I can do all my training outside again!!!
  • OMG!  Boxing-Seizure Gangster Boy has a multi-neon-colored Spongebob on the front of his t-shirt.  Wow.
  • Whoa!!!!  Sounds like someone has a serious anger issue down there on the basketball floor.  It’s just a basketball game – chillax man, that’s the 3rd time I’ve heard you have an outburst!  Dang!
  • I’m so glad this is over.  These people are insane up in here. I think the heat really messes with people’s brains!

I don’t know how many miles I ran, I logged 2.24 miles using information from the last time I did this session in the gym, and I ran for 27:33 minutes.  My craptastic app says I ran .78 miles, which would mean I did less than 8 laps around that stupid track.  I can assure you I did a lot more than 8 laps!  I’m debating if I’m going to run 45 minutes tomorrow or just do my 1 miler.  It’s on my schedule to run 13 miles Saturday – eeekkk!!!!!!

Tinker Bell half marathon 2013 is sold out.  Are you running it?

How did you do on drinking more water today?

Do you prefer to run indoors or outdoors?

  1. LOL…I love that you say what everyone is thinking (re: random thoughts at the gym). I am not running the Tinker Bell 1/2…too far from me. I did drink more water, woohoo! And I prefer to run outdoors but I don’t mind the mill. Good luck on your 13-miler! 🙂

    I don’t like to run holding my cell either. I like my hands free unless I have to run with the Bob. So I take it your not a big fan of Nike +? I haven’t used it but almost bought it.
    Not great on the water front. I need to get myself a big jug and force myself to drink it!

    • The Nike+ app and sensor was fine until I got the Garmin watch and discovered the Nike+ wasn’t exactly accurate. I ran with both on for awhile and sometimes I’d get home and the Nike+ app would say I ran 11 miles and the Garmin would say 7! The Nike+ app wasn’t always wrong but when I run my regular 1 mile run, sometimes it will say I ran .8 mile and other times it will say I ran 1.1. It’s just not as accurate as I would prefer.
