Running Report: Week Nine

And there's actually some running to report!

Friday & Sunday: An easy 30 minutes on the eliptical machine to make sure that my upper-respiratory system was up to doing cardio.

Wednesday: 3/2 walk/run intervals for 30 minutes at a 15-min walk pace and 12-min run pace. On the treadmill with some newly downloaded tunes on my mp3. Didn't totally suck, but I'm sore today.

Plus, I'm still doing the 8 Minutes in the Morning workouts. I'm hurting in a very bad way from the push-ups yesterday. And my abs are less than happy after the leg pulls this morning (which makes my coughing fits just a little extra fun this morning).

But my Path to Pretty has to get seriously fast-tracked: My sister wants me to try on bridesmaid dresses while I'm home at Christmas. Never mind that I get in at MIDNIGHT on Thursday (which means that I won't actually get to my parents' house until the wee hours of Friday morning) and I have only three days to relax, be jolly, and hang out with my family (and never mind that I see my parents for a total of about two weeks a year, whereas K lives 30 minutes from them, and I see the rest of my relatives exactly once a year and I won't get to see any of my friends). Never mind all that. I have to spend my Friday before Christmas shopping for a bridesmaid dress.

Bah humbug.

Oh, and did I mention that she's floating the idea of LIGHT GREEN dresses? A color which does not look good on any Caucasians, really, and looks horrendous on me.

Gah.

So here's the plan: I'll join the army but then desert right before our first weapons training and get thrown into a military prison for a few months, thus preventing me from being in the wedding.

Because if I simply fled the country, K would send a bounty hunter after me.

Hehe...i didn't realize light green didn't look good on most Caucasians! I guess it doesn't. Maybe it might look good on a redhead though? Or someone very fair-skinned, with no olive tones in her complexion? I kind of avoid light green, yellow and orange.

Tim McGraw...I heart Tim McGraw.

I have never been a bridesmaid, can you believe it?

I don't listen to much country, but I have always loved "The Dance" by Garth Brooks. I like to listen to it when I'm feeling nostalgic.

I heart Garth Brooks too.

I have never been a bridesmaid either but will be one in March. Luckily my friend Julie has picked a nice maroonish color that I can pull off.
