Running, music, and stockings…oh my.

11 Nov

You guys, it’s time. Do you have your Christmas music on? I do. It’s snowing. It’s blowing. Turn it on.  Have yourself a merry little Christmas…sigh. I love this song. I want to decorate so bad right now, but I always wait until the day after Thanksgiving to do it. The Wizard of Oz is always on when I decorate too. It’s my tradition. I LOVE it!

Today was World Run Day. I’m not going to go run outside, because I’m not that crazy… yet. So, I ran a 5K race on the treadmill. My mom asked me if I won. Duh. The crowd went wild!

worldI did an ab workout before I ran this morning. Les Mills Hard Core Abs. Pretty much the only ab workout I’ve ever liked doing.  I’ve been running with no music lately, just watching Fox News. I like to be depressed when I run I guess…today I jazzed it up a bit and created a fun playlist (no I did not run to Silent Night):

  • Diamonds (Rihanna)
  • Bridge Burning (Foo Fighters)
  • How We Do (Rita Ora)
  • Arlandria (Foo Fighters)
  • Whistle (Flo Rida)
  • We Run the Night (Havana Brown)
  • Titanium (David Guetta & Sia)
  • Everybody Love Me (OneRepublic)
  • Back and Forth (Foo Fighters)

I used Slim Sanity’s treadmill workout:

I’m not a super fast runner, so the last round was a little tough, and I had to stop and walk for a bit until I reached 3.1. I would not have to walk at all if I was outside running, but the treadmill plays dirty tricks with my head. Treadmill running is tougher than running outside for me. Is it for you?

Oh, and since I ran my “race” all by lonesome I will not be showing you how incredibly gorgeous I look in the morning…here’s a compression stocking shot right before I started LMP.
