Today I practiced my inner Skinny Runner… taking photos of myself that is, not the speedy running. I’m not rocking any SR tan either, but I am rockin’ my newest favorite additions to my wardrobe – my Nike Frees and Champion empire top.
This was the outfit that I wore to my first-ever kettlebell class. I’ve been wanting to try kettlebells for a while – as they seem to be the newest craze in workout world – and tonight was my last chance to try the class at my gym for free. How’d it go? Well, I can barely put one foot in front of the other right now without cramping up. The only bells available by the time I got to the class were 18lbs. – uh oh! I ended up using 10lb. dumbbells for a lot of the exercises and still felt the burn. I haven’t decided yet if I want to pay money to put myself in that much pain twice a week ;)
After class, I tried to “run it out” for a mile around the indoor track, but had little luck. I hopped on the elliptical for another mile, but my legs still feel like solid cement. I gave the foam roller a shot last. I hope I can get out of bed in the morning!
What new fitness activity/equipment have you discovered recently?

Just wanted to put in out there that I’ve been dealing with a bit of
writer’s blogger’s block; but because quality over quantity is more of value to me for NN on the Run, the posting around here may be shy of routine. I still have a couple recipes I want to share soon, and will keep ya’ll updated with my training, interning, and college life: semester eight.
I’ve got it all organized with Google Calendar :)
… that about covers it!
Going to crawl into bed and read my book – just 40 pages to go!
