My Hump

I'm sorry for the cryptic title, but I decided to listen to old school Black Eyed Peas. This is not the new stuff that I don't particularly like; it's the good stuff that won grammy's and stuff. I titled this post My Hump, because as soon as, "My hump, my hump, my lovely lady lumps" came on, I had passed a hump in my run, a milestone. And boy was my hump hurting.

I ran in my neighborhood doing the same run that Mal and I did last week. I did my stretching, walked around the gazebo and started running at 9:43. When I started running, my legs and butt were so sore from yesterday's Boot Camp DVD. I made it to the stopsign (turnaround point), turned around, and made it to the next stopsign before I stopped. In fact, I kept on running to make it an even 10 minutes at 9:53. Yes, that's right, I not only ran passed the second stopsign, but I also ran the mile in under 10 minutes. And I was feeling sluggish, because I was so sore and never thought that I would survive the mile nor make it in a decent time. Go me, for real, go me!

I walked for 2 minutes before picking up the run again. I also did the side run and around the roundabout to add more mileage. I walked when I hit the second pole, which is good for me. I decided to sprint at the third pole to the gazebo before walking for my cool down. So, all in all, I did 3 walks.

The only thing that I didn't like about this run was the fact that my ipod froze again (thankfully, it was right by my house when it went down). I don't know what's going on, but I'm betting it has something to do with the fact that I've dropped it two or three times (damn Cali).


  1. I have a 32k iPod that you can have.

    Glad to see you are running. Don't leave the cats alone. They need you.
    What new rug?

  2. Sweet. I'll take it!

    The rug that you guys gave me..from grams.
