High Ho High Ho Off to the Gym I Go!

Thanks to Melissa at Crazy or Determined? for tagging me for the Stylish Blogger Award. I'll need to share 7 things about myself. I like sharing these kinds of things. Expect at post later this week!

Well....I did it! I braved the New Year's Resolution Crowd at the gym and managed 2-miles on the treadmill with my sister-in-law. I'm trying to convince her to train with me. She is getting married in April and wants to look great in that dress. She used a guest pass to try out my gym tonight. Don't know if she'll join because it's pretty pricey and I don't know if she can handle that right now. But who knows......the upside is that I got my 2 miles in that I needed.

I skipped these 2 miles yesterday to go grocery shopping yesterday. We were in desperate need of food. Seriously! We had tumbleweeds and spiders in our fridge!!! (just kidding...but the fridge was really empty) Today my students asked me if I ran last night and i had to tell them that I didn't. They all shouted "scolding" remarks at me. So....I had extra motivation tonight.

Tomorrow I have my first cross training day and I'm planning on a toning class at the gym. Friday is another 2 miles (marks 1 week of training down!) and then 4 miles on Sunday. I'm loving this right now :) (remind me of that in a month when I'm cursing the day I signed up for this darn half)

***Giveaway News***

I recently became a follower of Run, Zoe, Run! The newbie mommy is lacing her running shoes back up and hitting the streets and trails again with baby Goober and jogging stroller in-tow. To celebrate her new goals she's hosting a giveaway...and an awesome one at that! A $50 CSN gift card!!!! Awesome! I totally want this one :) So head on over and check it out.....don't enter because that will lessen my chances Ha!

Another fun note....we're going on a field trip tomorrow! To the YMCA! It's a fitness related trip that involves relay races, basketball tossing, jumping, climbing, and even swimming. The students also need to run a number of laps around an indoor track. When I told them I missed my miles yesterday they told me I should run with them at the Y tomorrow. I'm honestly considering setting aside my "teacher" shoes for "running" shoes just to motivate them even more. This should be good!

Happy Running!
