I promptly got out of bed and hit the gym at 9 AM this morning. I ran 2.5 miles at a 9:50 minute/mile pace and then ran the next 2.5 miles doing interval sprints. This is the type of workout I used to do when preparing for Sea Gal auditions. Needless to say, carrying an extra 25+lbs does not make the workout any easier. While I struggled to finish, I felt great when it was over. Again, my music saved me today. The songs that got me through the sprints were Pink - Raise Your Glass, Glee - Marry You, MJ and Akon - Hold My Hand, and the Biggest Loser theme song Proud by Richard Niles. If these songs aren't on your workout playlist, you are missing out.
After the gym and a shower, I met up with my adopted family (the Cahalans) to see HP7. I don't want to give anything away for those who haven't seen the movie or read the book (all 9 of you out there), but I will say that it was two and a half hours of adrenaline and emotion. I was physically and emotionally exhausted by the end.
The rest of my day consisted of reading law review articles and writing a paper on the barriers women face in running for political office. Exciting. At least it stopped snowing... for now. I hear we're supposed to get another 6-9 inches by the end of Tuesday. Are we sure this is November? Oh well, I hope you have a great start to your new week!
