Too good to last

It was around 70 F for the past 5 days and it all came to an end today. Temperature dropped by about 20 F and now it's back to around the 40's. It looks like it's going to be cold for a while yet. I thought that was it for winter. In fact, my roses are starting to sprout some new leaves. I guess I have to wait a little bit longer.

As for the workout, I stayed true to my promise and made it to the gym first thing in the morning for cardio and abs. I ran on the treadmill for my cardio HIIT and hit another personal best - 2.0 miles in 19:45 minutes!!!! WOOOOHOOOO!!! How cool is that! I kept ramping up the speed on minutes 18 & 19 and hit 7 mph. I only stayed there for a little bit and had to lower the speed to 6.9 mph because I literally felt like I was going to puke my guts out! That would have been really nasty! Also, as soon as I hit 2 miles, I lowered the speed to 6.0 mph until minute 20. I just couldn't go fast any longer. I guess you coud say that I definitely hit my 10 :).

My last personal best was 2.0 miles in 19:52 minutes - a mere 7 seconds difference from my current personal best. However, it seems like I worked twice as hard today as I did last week. Isn't it funny how that goes?

Tomorrow morning is spinning, so I'm going to try to go to sleep early for once.


American Idol

Tonight's show was really good. My thoughts are little peaksqueak Kevin has to go and Chris Daughtry rocked the house!

I'm still up in the air as to who will win. I think Katherine McPhee has the total package and Paris Bennett has the Fantasia factor going on. Those 2 could pull it off towards the end and duke it out in the finals. Chris might squeak in there though. Other good performers are Taylor Hicks, Lisa Tucker, Elliott Yamin, & Mandissa. This is probably the most talented bunch of all the seasons so far.

When it comes to running especially in 20 min. intervals 7 seconds is a long time. Great job on keeping the promise.
It was a great show they are all talented. I don't have a favorite just yet.

Yeah..we just got that cold spell back, and it's making me want to do absolutely nothing! Great job on getting out there! And Idol...Chris all the way! I don't usually like the rockers, but he's definitely got my attention! Awesome voice, looks like Vin Diesel....what more could you ask for? lol
