Workout of the Day- My Running Buddy & A New DVD to run to!

Ok, it’s super hard for me to run in the morning.  But when this handsome boy is waiting for me, I know I have to get up.ImageThis is Sox.  He belongs to my neighbors, but I like to steal him whenever I can.  Sox is great on long runs.  He keeps a 10 min/mile pace perfectly!  He is also my security guard and listens to me babble about how much I hate running up hills :). My favorite thing about this cutie is that he looks big and tough, but he a sweet sensitive teddy bear.  Thank you Mr. Sox for keeping me going on those days when I feel like giving up!

As for my weekly runs, I went out on a 6 mile run yesterday.  It was great!  Today, no running :(.  Yesterday after my run I suddenly cam down with a major stomach bug.  No fun!  I’m hoping it will pass quickly and that I might be able to complete my long run tomorrow.  I really hope so.  My hubby bought me the Hunger Games to watch while on the treadmill.  I was planning on running through the whole movie and making it a really really long run.  I guess we’ll see.

Here’s a little strange tidbit about me and my running.  I love to watch end of the world movies, action, anything fighting or chasing while I run on the treadmill.  I know a lot of people hate treadmill running.  But when I have a really good movie (or bad, I like really terrible ones too) to get me hyped, I love it!  Ahhh, Hunger Games is going to be so perfect!!  Come on stomach bug, get out of my system so I can pretend I’m being chased by tributes!

I know, the insanely nerdy bit of my personality just came out.  I think I warned everyone about that in one of my posts.  Ignore her, she tends to be quite crazy 🙂
