It was wow in other ways too; I'll get to that eventually.
This morning's track workout consisted of strides and 200's. The goal was to do 8 to 10. I managed 5. I felt it here. (pointing to head) I felt it here. (pointing to heart) But my sad little legs felt like lead. My knee felt a bit wonky and I just didn't have it in me this morning. Confused, I cooled down and headed home. Oh well, some days you just aren't "on."
But when I got to work...many great things awaited me. Look and see - It's like my desk exploded with pink and pretty!
See, it's my birthday today. Actually, I don't celebrate my birthday. I celebrate the anniversary of my 27th birthday each year. How convenient is that? My body, my rules. I felt very loved today. Lots of well wishes, kind words, Hello Kitty and cookies from JD's Chippery. In a rare demonstration of self control, I only ate ONE snickerdoodle. (however I have the other stashed away safely...tomorrow is another day)
For supper, Hubs took his cheap date to the restaurant of her choice, Potbelly. Yep, Potbelly. I get the Veggie on wheat with lettuce, onion and tomato. Don't forget the Zapps! I don't know why my thumbnail looks dirty in the photo. I swear it's not! On the way home from Potbelly, I got a cramp in my calf. Suddenly, I remembered waking up a few times in the night with leg cramps. Not quite a Charlie Horse, but probably would have ended up there if I hadn't woken up and massaged the heck out of it. Ouch. My calf was sore. Oh yeah, maybe that explains the crummy run this morning! Mystery solved.
Anyway. How cute is this? Hubs wrapped my gifts in cupcake paper and bought pink satin ribbon. Isn't he just the bee's knees?
Instead of cake, he surprised me with Godiva dark chocolate truffles. Um, yes please! He bought a milk chocolate and mint ones for himself. Hubs isn't a dark chocolate fan. Hey, no one is perfect. Ooh, it was delicious! And I still have 5 more to last me for a while. Yummers. Now, how thoughtful is that?
I've blogged about how much I love the Wii game, Just Dance. Creeshy loaned me hers. So Hubs got me my very own. Admittedly, I've danced to Katy Perry's "Hot and Cold" about eleven times tonight. Hubs is for sure going to start making me play this with the tv on mute! It's fun, it's silly and honestly, it's a good workout. My heart rate def stayed up and my arms are feeling the burn!
I say I got the 3G for my birthday. Godiva chocolate, Game for Wii and...a Garmin! I'm finally one of y'all! I will know my pace, distance and all that jazz. It's plugged in charging and I can't wait to take it out for a run. Truth be told, I did put on flip flops, head out in the rain and run up and down the driveway just to test it out. I managed to maintain a 15 min mile and burn 1 calorie on that bad boy. Ha! All in all, I had a very blessed day. Hope you did too! June is done and I've got some big plans for July. Stay tuned...
