New Toys

They are ordered...will be on the way in 3-5 days according to buy.com and I got free shipping so 7-9 days delivery (but seems sites always say that and usually it doesn't take nearly that long). So within 2 weeks my new toys will be here and I'm so excited to get back to some sort of weight training. I might need to somehow find a way to have a weigh bench at some point too, but for now I do have an exercise ball and that will be good to at least use to a degree. I couldn't pass up the deal. I found them for $120 on Amazon with free shipping, $100 on GNC.com with free shipping and $100 on Buy.com with free shipping...but if you haven't used Google check out you can use it and get another $10 off so for $90 I have them being shipped to me...Exciting stuff!

I managed an OK run last night too. For the first time in a long time I wore my Garmin and had a 5 mile run in 45:41 which is an OK pace, all things considered. I probably could've gone faster, I wasn't too winded and it is not a flat course by any means. Overall I was happy with it. I was too sore to attempt yoga last night, that Tuesday night workout kicked my butt on sore muscles, but at least this morning I'm feeling much better so I'm going to do the strength session tonight, then will plan maybe a 6 mile run tomorrow for a "longer" run, since tomorrow is the better day of the weekend. I'm hoping for a short easy 3-4 on Sunday for a 4 day running week. Might get an hour yoga session in too on Sunday. I do really like the yoga DVD I have for strength and flexibility, it's Rodney Yee, and there are two workouts, each about 20 minutes which is about a perfect session, I can always add to it if I want more poses that aren't covered since there are a number of poses I've enjoyed in classes. One thing I'd really like to find though is a good Power Flow Yoga DVD. Does anyone know of one? I used to love Power Flow class when I was a gym member and felt it was a good workout...particularly when I could get up at 5:30 and do the workout before work...nothing like feeling so good about yourself in the morning...I used to be on a good schedule to run in the morning and know that by next summer, to meet some of my goals, I'm going to have to do that again, but for now, I'd like it if I could get up, at least to start, just 2 days a week and do my yoga in the morning before work...it's only 20 minutes sooner...one of these days I'll try it. Means getting up at 6 instead of 6:30...I can do it...I think...

I'm trying to convince myself to get up half hour early on Mondays and Wednesdays to make it to the spinning classes. So far, it hasn't worked so if you figure out a trick, let me know! :)
