I went to the gym anyway, and after 30 minutes of chatting and procrastinating, I finally got on a treadmill. After a few minutes of my warm-up walking my hip and knee both felt fine, so I figured it really was in my head. I walked for 5 minutes, jogged for 3, walked for 1.5, jogged for 5, walked for 2.5, jogged for 3, and started walking. There was my 11 minutes of jogging, and I had made it through! I was tired and slightly winded (my asthma was flaring a little, but nothing unsafe for me to jog), but I felt good. Then I heard the beep to start running. What?? I glanced at my phone and saw it counting down another 5 minute jog. I'm pretty sure I let out a little whimper, but I hit the button to switch pace. After I was done (for real this time) I realized that the first time I calculated only added up to 25 minutes, and I had 31.5 minutes on the timer. Oh well, I still survived. And I had all kinds of endorphins flooding me on the way home. Love it.
I have been on a tea kick lately! I've always liked tea, but in the past few months I've been drinking it a lot more. Even more than coffee, and if you know me, you know how crazy that idea is! Anyway, this week I picked up a few new flavors to try and they are all delicious.

Whoo hoo! I have the day off today. I didn't sub this morning, and I gave away my shift at work tonight. So what are my big Friday night plans, you ask? I'm going to spin class and then to Jo-Ann's (the craft store). Yep, that's right, I'm going to my place of work on my night off. Because I'm awesome like that. Actually, I love my spin classes, and I adore the instructors. I've get really bummed when my schedule doesn't allow me to take the class. I think this will be the first time I've gone in about a month. I'm super excited!
Ok, I think I'm addicted to the endorphins. :-) Seriously, I'm not a workout addict by any stretch of the imagination, but I notice that when I do cardio, I want to do more of it. Take my c25k stuff for example. My schedule was weird this week so I had a bigger gap between day 2 and day 3 on my schedule. When I finally got to it, was was practically bouncing to get on the treadmill. I couldn't remember why about 10 minutes in, but still!
