Three Things Thursday

1. The H has been following some super intense 90 day workout stuff, like a P90X type program. I originally bought it AGES ago, when I thought it would be a nice compliment to the 10-15 miles a week I was running. Turns out, running 30-40 mile weeks, it's way less interesting. Also, it looked really hard and unfun. Anyway, he's about 70 days in, and... man. It works.

And, since yesterday was cross training day, and he was doing arms/chest, I decided to join him!

I've been pretty regularly doing some arm program I have on an app on my phone (so it MUST be legit...), and thought it was okay.

And last night, doing the DVD stuff, I was like, eh. This is a little hard, but not terrible.
But this morning? Hello, triceps. Ouch.

Verrrrrrrry tricky, DVD. Very tricky.

2. Our weather has been glorious and cool for a few days. Today? High around 80. By Saturday and Sunday (when I'm supposed to run 5 and 20 miles, respectively)? High 90. WHAT IS THAT, SO CAL?? Stop being so rude.

I had grand cooking plans, involving empenada dough and beef stew this weekend. Out the window, I guess. Rude.

3. Tuesday night, after an arduous day at the office (not really), a hard run (really), then having to go to the store, and FINALLY getting home around 8, I step out of my car, and almost right on top of a damn giant vicious BUG.

I told the girls, and #2 and #3 wanted to go laugh at me check it out. After some net wrangling....

...before releasing it back into the wild. RIGHT IN FRONT OF MY CAR. I'm telling you, getting to my car the next morning, in the dark, was terrifying. Something that looks like that surely holds a grudge.


  1. P90X stuff works, especially on dudes. You are a lucky girl!

  2. I'm going 22 on Saturday and it is supposed to rain. Luckily CIM will probably be dry and NOT 90 degrees.

  3. I have seen people get great results with p90x, but have never tried it. I tend to be more of a short intense workout.
    That bug is pretty ugly!

  4. I made it through 9 weeks of P90X last year. I was VERY proud of myself for that. But I still had too much fat so I couldn't see my muscles. Then I started losing weight this year from running harder. But now I don't have time to do P90X. What's a girl to do?

  5. P90X is no joke. tried it a while back. i hope your hubs mutes that annoying mans voice. he’s terrible. i hate bugs. would’ve totally freaked out too.

  6. Your vicious bug is a preying mantis and they are only vicious to other bugs. I'm not much of a bug fan but these are cool. However, my fourth grade teacher didn't think so when an egg sack that I brought to class hatched early and all the babies got out of the jar though the holes in the lid and were all over the classroom!

  7. I am laughing so hard at your "vicious bug" ... not so vicious!

    I just started doing more non-running workouts. But nothing compared to P90X. That looks scary!

    I miss our chat sessions!!! A piece of my life is missing in cyber world!!!
