week 1 of marathon training

So Sunday started the marathon training schedule.  Luckily it was 30 mins of cross training, so I took the dog for a walk and played Just Dance 2.  I was sweating after Just Dance so I am counting that towards my Sunday workout. :)  If you are wondering I have a new go to song...Wake me up before you Go-Go..by wham...I know, I know, it shocked me too.  I was always doing so well with the It's Raining Men that who would have thought I would top the 10000 points for the Wham song.


So last evening we had a girls night out at The Melting Pot. 

Now if you notice in the second picture that Kristen and I finished up the other plate of chocolate dipping goodies for the table.  You just can not let cheesecake and brownies sit at the table untouched.  I think they lock you up for stuff like that, so rather than risk a police raid Kristen and I took one for the team and finished up some of the left over goodies (which also included some pineapple and strawberries...see we were thinking healthy).  Very yummy. 

Since I had so much chocolate and sweets the night before I decided that I must run today.  It was supposed to be a stretching day but lets face it I have had lots of days of stretching for the last couple of months.  So off to the gym for a 40 min run and a 40 min. bike ride.  Yeah I rock lol.  

Snow/freezing rain/ ice are supposed to move into the region over night.  Is it bad that I am hoping for at least  a 2 hour delay tomorrow??  Probably won't happen but we will see.  Then it is back to the running club.  I haven't been there since before Christmas.

Oh yes, cannot leave anything on the plate at Melting Pot! Yum! I think I need to bring that up to my hubs so we go again...

I can't "cash in" my day off on a monday or I will inevitably end up short on miles. Seems like I am the only one with this "problem"!
