I love the weekend

by - Friday, February 01, 2008

Yesterday was my scheduled 25 minute easy run. I warmed up at 5.0 mph (12 minute mile) for five minutes. Then I set the treadmill at 5.5 which is about an 11 minute mile and cruised through the rest of the run.

Today it is absolutely disgusting outside. It has been raining all day and apparently there's a lot of flooding going on. Tonight is a cross-training day, and I still don't have my mind on what I'm exactly going to do.

I'm toying with the idea of trying out the rowing machine, but I'm also debating between the bike and the elliptical. I think it will in large part depend on what equipment is free. I'm pretty sure there are only two rowing machines and if they are being used I'm not waiting around for them. It's Friday and I want to be able to go home and read this David Baldacci book I'm in the middle of. He's one of my favorite authors and I'm catching up on a bunch of his older stuff that I haven't read. (Mainly because I couldn't get my hands on the book for the Blogland Book Club)
