Post Valentines Day Post
Monday night I decided to give the circuit a try again since I hadn't lifted weights in about 2 weeks. It was harder than I remember and a bit difficult to do on my own. I thought it would be weird to ask a random guy at the gym to spot me. Therefore, I didn't try anything too difficult because of the possible catastrophe. My husband (Toph) says it wouldn't be that weird to ask someone to spot me. What are your thoughts? Would/have you asked strangers at the gym to spot you during a tough set?
Yesterday I met up for lunch with Kim at the Ilax Studio. We both work in downtown Chicago, so I was glad our schedules coordinated for us to meet up to grab a quick bite.
check out her blog, if you haven't already! We both agreed this to do this again some time in March once our schedules are a bit more forgiving! Yay for new running friends online and IRL!
As yesterday was Valentines day, my husband and I "mildly" celebrated. I walked in to find a clean kitchen and some beautiful flowers waiting for me.
In other news..... It is official. I've registered for the Chicago Get Lucky 21k/Half Marathon. If you are registered, let me know and we can do a blogger meet up. (Gingerfoxxx, I'm looking at you!) As I haven't done an official half marathon since 2008, I think it will be nice to complete one without a specific time goal and to get a feel for the distance before kicking it up for the Southwest Half Marathon on May 6. I'm aiming for a sub 2:00 in May so I'm hoping to get maybe 2:10-2:15 for the Get Lucky race? We'll see how I feel, what the weather is like, and what the course is like.
