Last night, after spending three hours at the gym doing various activities, for some reason a conversation with Alyssa made me think of this and I couldn't stop laughing. I woke up the dog and she gave me the stink eye I was laughing so much. This morning it doesn't seem so funny, but humorous nonetheless. Clearly I was just exhausted.
Needless to say, after three hours in the gym, I woke up so extremely sore today and since I have ten miles on the docket for tomorrow, today must be a rest day. It'll be a new PDR by a whole mile. Pray for me :)
All day yesterday, I was having some sort of muscle pain/ache in my ankle. I spent the day rubbing if from time to time, hoping to work out the pain and I ended up making it worse.

So you may be thinking, why would I spend so much time at the gym. Well, for a few reasons. Some of which I'm not at liberty to discuss currently, but the one that I can discuss is that I've gotten soft and I don't like it. I used to work out so hard I'd be sore most days of the week and I had much more muscle definition. Half of every workout was spent doing strength training. Well, then I started running. I've gained endurance and running longer distances is getting easier which is a great feeling, but basically muscle definition everywhere else has suffered. I found a picture on Pinterest that I've "doctored" (ahem...I cropped off chick's head) and titled it "motivation" and it now lives on my computer desktop. Not that I'll ever have this exact body. Don't get me wrong, I'm not expecting that, but it's motivating nonetheless.

Do you laugh out loud at things other people don't "get"?
(Story of my life, by the way)
Do you ever use pictures, rather than sayings, as fitness motivation?
