January's Last Chance Workout
Sunday, January 31, 2010
This morning I woke up bright and early and headed for the gym. I took the scenic route to the gym with a Nike+ reported run of 3.03 miles. The gym was pretty empty at 6:55am which was nice. This gym visit earned me my Gym Rat status using Foursquare's iPhone app. If you don't know what Foursquare is it's like Twitter/Friendfeed but you check in at physical locations that you visit earning badges and stuff. It's fun. I don't check in everywhere everytime but when I do remember I try to log in. I only wish it was a Gym Bunny badge instead of a Gym Rat. Oh well a badge is a badge, which is meaningless anyways.
After my time at the gym working on abs, chest and arms it was time to run. The only thing was that for some reason I had to take 3 trips to the restroom at the gym and then moments into my run I had to pee again. Ugh! I so wasn't enjoying this run. I ran from the gym to La Cienega up to Sunset and then Sunset west. I stopped at the Will Rogers Park to take a pee break then I decided to give up and just run home. I figured all the water I drank pre-workout and at the gym was just going to make this run horrible. This run was logged in on Nike+ as 7.73 miles. So my total running today via Nike+ was 10.76 miles. Bringing my monthly total to 124.97! Smashing my old most mileage in a month record. I had hoped to run longer today but I'll make up for it over the next week. So need to keep on my LA Marathon training adding a mile or so a week. 48 Days to the LA Marathon and counting!
