Another delayed blog… not having a working computer at home right now is a major pain in the neck! And it seems that the boyfriend has come down with the flu, so I’m not sure it’ll be fixed anytime soon. Poor guy…
Last night I finally stuck to my training plan and banged out 3 miles! One of the nicer things about running is that you start to see improvements quickly. I was able to jog for a mile nonstop before taking a walk break, and then another mile nonstop (although I did have to take breaks in the 3rd mile). Maybe the difference is jogging after work instead of in the morning — I think I’m just too groggy and/or hungry in the mornings to do well. I actually felt some endorphins after the run! I never feel the euphoria during runs (I’m always focused on when I can stop running), but I do usually feel good afterward.
Song of the Day
The Black Keys – Howlin’ for You. I grabbed the Black Keys’ album, Brothers, off of Amazon MP3 on a whim after seeing it on Entertainment Weekly’s “Top 10 Albums of 2010” list, and I’m so glad I did! They’re a blues-rock duo with some incredibly catchy songs. This one is my favorite from the album (I immediately added it to my running playlist), but the rest are worth a listen too. They remind me a bit of the White Stripes and Red Hot Chili Peppers.
