luck at Hollywood Video

So I went to the video store last night to pick up something to make my 1:40 ride this morning less mind-numbing...and the Sex and the City Season 6 Volume 2 was actually there! Gasp! I snatched that up, and also grabbed March of the Penguins and Kingdom of Heaven (gotta throw the history epic in there, and Orlando Bloom to boot). I never had HBO, but I really loved the show Sex and the City, so I have been watching them season at a time and have been waiting for this DVD for MONTHS. Someone has been a Sex and the City hog at my local Hollywood Video. It's the series finale and I've been left hanging!!!!

Anyway, watched it on the trainer today and got to the final episode. Then I had to stop and go out for my 25 minute run. Note to self: Must wear sunglasses when it's snowing. I feel like my eyeballs got pelted with little snowballs the whole time! Had some great tunes on my iPod from Wil to keep me going. I think "Spirit" by the Caesars is my new IM MOO anthem.

Got home and took a shower, then Mugs and I watched the rest of the series finale. I am not much of a cryer, but I must admit I squirted some at the end there....SUCH a good show. Bummer it's not on anymore.

Tomorrow is the indoor tri--man, I gots to get up EARLY to drive the hour to where it is. Ugh. I am just kind of treating it as a nice brick workout at a tempo pace. Or at least that's what I'm trying to tell myself to do. Sometimes I have a knack of getting too competitive when I need to back off and just have a good workout--it's not time for me to break any records, just build a base! I need to remember that if I start getting carried away and trying to hammer too hard. There will be plenty of time for that!

I'm thinking of doing a sprint in June just for fun so I can hammer hard--I love sprints! Just when I feel like I'm going to die, it's over. Plus, it's about a mile down the road from our buddies, so we could go visit them.

Can I tell you how FRICKEN EXCITED I am to go backpacking in the Grand Canyon in 4 months????????? We watched the video they sent us last night--kinda funny, as I know they are trying to scare us because it is VERY hard and you need to be prepared, but they actually had a segment telling you how to poop in the Canyon. They described where to dig, how deep the hole should be, etc. and had some actor guy walking with a shovel up the side of a hill and digging a hole....what a great acting job!!!

BTW, my husband is the cutest guy ever. He knows that I've been trying yoga for the past month or so and really enjoying it...although Cliff is right, Rodney Yee yoga videos are definitely tough!!! Anyway, when shopping for his dad's b-day present today he saw a pair of Nike yoga pants on clearance and snatched them up for me. What a guy. :)
