2nd Run and Hip Hop Conundrum

When I got home from work I immediately put on my running gear and headed out the door. Unfortunately how I planned my route resulted in my first minute of running to be uphill after that I picked more flat terrain. The goal was to do the 1 minute of running 6 times. 1st and 2nd time went o.k, 3rd time didn't make a minute, 4th time almost made a minute. The 5th and 6th time I made the minute and I added a 7th to make up the other two. It was hard, I just kept telling myself, you can do this and push through it. People tell me it gets easier, I hope their right.

On the hip hop front I found out you can now register for term 2 but I have an issue. The first term cost $170, the second longer term costs $280. That's $450 for 1 hr of cardio once a week. I think I'll retire when this term is over. I paid less than $200 for a one year gym membership and add in Christmas looming and I just can't justify it. I'll just continue on with my Hip Hop abs dvd when I feel the need to get my groove on. I also think that just plain dancing in your living room for an hour is an awesome workout.

Tonight I have a seminar after work so today will be a rest day. Tomorrow my schedule is up in the air. I'm going to start the Wilton cake decorating level one on Nov.7th and two of my co-workers are going to do it too. So the plan is to register for that. Someone we used to work with is getting married in September and has asked my co-baker in the office to make the cake and I volunteered to assist her. So now we're going to perfect our skills and develop our skills with fondant. Of course none of us want to keep our creations so the office will benefit. Maybe we should do a bake sale on those days.
Thursday should technically be my the 3rd running night of the week, the other factor is we're expecting some bad weather and the four letter word "snow" has been mentioned. I've trained in the worst of winter and that doesn't worry me, it's if my neighbours shovel their sidewalks. I'm holding Friday as my sub running day.
I've been recording shows like crazy this week on the dvr. I don't know what I did without this thing. Not having to worry about tape length or the network moving the show is total bliss. I did record Biggest Loser but caught the last half hour after hip hop. I totally can't believe Neil tossed the weigh in to secure Blue team members. I so think that's not the way to play this game. I was impressed with how Jez held his head high and left with integrity. It will be interesting to see what happens next week.
Have a great day!
