Climb Every Mountain

31 Oct

So today I was not in the mood to work out. I was tired from my race yesterday, and I’ve overall been feeling under the weather all week. But I figured since it’s Halloween, and I’m eating more garbage than normal today I should go.

I was planning to lift weights and run, but I forgot my asthma inhaler, so I couldn’t run. Instead I did two sets of weights on chest press, chest fly, lat pull and shoulder press, and then I climbed 100 stories in 27 minutes on the Stair Master. I hadn’t done the Stair Master in probably 6 months or so, and it felt really good. It was fun to change up my routine and take a day off from running.

Plus during my workout, I had a chance to read the latest issue of Travel & Leisure Magazine which informed me that Egypt is the new Italy. No idea what this really means, but I’m heading to Egypt next June so I’m stoked. I also found out that Andrew Lloyd Webber penned a musical sequel to my favorite play of all time, Phantom of the Opera. So if I had been running today, I would never have read the magazine. 🙂

I definitely feel great I worked out. Now I can chow down on my homemade spaghetti sauce this evening and have an extra slice of garlic bread. 🙂

Hope everyone has a safe and happy Halloween! I will be glad when it’s over due to my extreme addiction to candy corn. 🙂
