I do think this self challenge of completing 30 days of 5Ks was one of the best things I could have done for myself. It has helped me develop some endurance and the exercise habit. Both were areas that I was sadly lacking after this summer.
Now check out the mileage:
|Don't adjust your monitor. It really is that blurry.|
I had quite an eclectic playlist on the mp3 jamming:
Apache (Jump on it) by Sugarhill Gang (Will Smith cracked me up dancing to this)
Bust a Move
Come Dancing by the Kinks (such a happy tune)
Dancing Queen from Mamma Mia (made me feel like skipping. How awesome would it have been if I actually skipped in the rain while listening to this?)
Get Ready for This
Gimme!Gimme!Gimme! from Mamma Mia
Iko Iko from Rain Man
Intuition by Jewel
Jump in the Line by Harry Belafonte (Remember that scene from Beetlejuice?)
Lay all Your Love on Me from Mamma Mia
Margaritaville by Jimmy Buffet (puts me in my summer happy place)
Money, Money, Money from Mamma Mia
Naughty Girl by Beyonce (oh my!)
Pa' La Discoteka a Bailar (great Zumba song)
Road to Nowhere by Talking Heads (such an appropriate song for someone walking in circles in a neighborhood in the rain)
Samba Groove (another Zumba song)
South Side by Moby
Stayin' Alive by the BeeGees (got my John Travolta strut going on)
Superstition by Stevie Wonder
Voulez-vous from Mamma Mia
It was nice to get the miles in but even better to have fun while doing it. It's amazing what the right music can do for an otherwise boring routine. Add in some rain and it's a party!
For dinner I made a tasty taco salad: taco meat, a couple of crushed taco shells, rinsed canned pinto beans, lettuce, salsa, cheese and light Ranch dressing. So yum and not too bad on calories or carbs.
Hope your day is wonderful.
