double the fun

Today was another one of those days when I decided to work out in the morning and evening.  I'm just that dedicated to fitness, what can I say.  Let's start with this morning's work out. 

What happens when you ask your husband to set the alarm clock?  He wakes you up 30 minutes earlier than you wanted.  While watching the Academy Awards last night (sidebar - I was a little disappointed with James Franco ... he seemed a little TOO out of it) I leaned over and asked Ryan to set his alarm clock for 6:30am since my iPhone was too far away to set my own.  He obliged and I drifted off to sleep.  This morning he woke me up and after 10 minutes of whining, I finally got out of  bed and got ready for the gym.  I grabbed my phone on the way out and noticed it said 6:12.  WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT!  So I did what any other normal, sleep deprived person would do ... jump back into bed (in gym clothes) for another 15 minutes. 

Once I got to the gym it was smooth sailing.  I watched the news (no HGTV for once) and ran:
  • 3.17 miles in 28 minutes - 1 minute walking warm up, 26 minutes running, 1 minute walking cool down

Since running this morning wasn't enough to satisfy my exercise craving, I headed over to a hot yoga class at 5:30pm.  While in the 1.5 hour class, the power went out due to a terrible storm hitting Charlotte.  We finished class by candlelight since the room was pitch black.  The traffic lights were all out in the area of town by the yoga studio so kind police officers in bright yellow slickers guided traffic.  I managed to safely get home. 

**sidenote** I've ran 108 miles so far in 2011.  I'm well on my way to hitting my goal of 500 miles this year!
