3 mile run and a little spin.

Another great spinning class this morning with our favorite instructor!  One hour of pure, endorphin-induced bliss.  Well, maybe my idea of bliss is different than most people's, but I can truly say I have officially become addicted to spinning.  After the class, Chris and I hit the weight room.  He did his strength training yesterday before work, so he recovered from spinning while helping me do my usual weight rotation.  We spent an hour doing that, and I even added a few new things, like inverted sit-ups using a 9 pound medicine ball in between my reps of bicep curls, and sideways sit-ups in between my lat pulls and tri downs.  It kind of fun to start to see some visible increase in muscle definition in my arms.  It's helping me to feel more like the athlete that I know I have inside who is scratching her way to the surface.  Apparently, it's a slow process.

After our hour in the weight room, I found an open treadmill and cranked out 3 miles in 30 minutes.  As an added bonus, I came home to a UPS delivery of a brand new pair of my favorite running shoes, ASICS Gel Nimbus 13's!  Nothing more exciting than getting new running gear.  My feet will be happy running 10 miles this weekend. :)
