Just Checking In

I really don't have it in me tonight to write much at all... I can't say that today has been that taxing, but for some reason tonight - every muscle, joint, and bone in my body is aching.

I did get a good workout in today - burned over 700 calories!! I bumped the running portion of my workout up to 20 minutes today, and ran just short of 3 miles... I mean literally - I was running for it at the end of the time, but just didn't make it all the way there.

John offered to buy his sister's treadmill for me today because of my running, but his Dad is using it right now - so we'll have to see what happens with that. As the weather cools off - I'd like to take it to the streets and actually run for distance like the traditionalists, but while it's 105 degrees with 100% humidity - I'm not seeing it happening for me.

I'm starting to look into new tennis shoes too - I'm going to need them sooner rather than later if I am going to keep up the running. I found some in my Weight Watchers magazine that are gel lined and designed for treadmills... but man I never remember that shoes cost over $100 for the good ones!

Other than that - I got my nails done today which makes me feel light years better about my interviews on Monday... because you know that someone looking at my hands was going to black ball me for a job because I needed a refill in the worst way... right?!

I've been resting for a good portion of the day, but tonight - my body is aching... it's mainly my neck and my back... nothing a good massage wouldn't cure - but for the time being - I'm going to have to make due with whatever relief I can get from John rubbing my back, and a hot shower. MAN - I can't wait to get a job!! I believe I owe myself a pedicure and a massage!
