Wednesday Workout Update

Posted May 20 2009 11:57am
"Veronica and I are trying this new fad called uh, jogging. I believe it's jogging or yogging. It might be a soft "J." I'm not sure but apparently you just run for an extended period of time. It's supposed to be wild."(from the GREATEST movie ever, Anchorman)

Yeah, me and Ron Burgandy...we're joggers. And we like it! OK, maybe I'm just assuming that Ron, er, Will Ferrell likes jogging. I'm sure he does - after all, he's my future second husband, so he's perfect like that. And yes, my current husband is well aware of my plans for Will. He's ok with it, because as soon as Holly Hunter is available, he's all hers. It's crazy talk like this that has kept us going for nearly 25 years! But I's just that I can't think about jogging without remembering that quote from Anchorman...and if you haven't seen it, what are you waiting for? Go rent it now!!!

Oh yeah, jogging. Yep, I've been doing it - on the treadmill during my workouts. And I am surprised to say that I enjoy it. I actually look forward to it. And on a day like today, when Brad had other plans for us (a wicked full hour of strength training with a bit of cardio thrown in for "breaks"), I am disappointed to not get to jog.

So I know I'm going to sound like a stupidhead, but if I were to, say, jog outside ( I know, what a concept) - would I just go? Is this the "Just Do It" of which Nike preaches? Should I time myself like I do at the gym? What about water - do I drink say, 8 oz. before I start and then just replenish when I'm done? This is so weird for me to actually consider it, and yet I am! I realize that I might be overthinking this just a tad (really?!?), but obviously I'm not an impulsive person when it comes to exercise.
