Shut Down.

Hi it's me....I'm alive (just in case anyone was wondering!!). So, I usually do ALL of my bogging from work, creating posts as well as reading all of your wonderful blogs and commenting. New Flash.....I came back from NYC and they had shut down access to blogs at my office. Effers. The horror! Hence the reason I have not posted, commented or even read a single blog in about 3 weeks. I know.....I could do this all from home, but who has time for that??? Honestly, when I get home from work the last thing I want to do is get on the computer, seeing as I work on one all day, and to get on the computer at home, I have to literally beg, plead and bargain with my son to get off. So here I am on Sunday morning checking in and posting. This will prolly have to be my designated blog time, which means I will be down to once a week blogging, reading and commenting. BOOOO! C'est la vie!

OK, so I left off around Valentine's Day....I went to NYC that week-end. We got snowed in and had to stay an extra day. Kinda fun, kinda inconvenient. You would've thought NYC had never seen 20 plus inches of snow before, the city pretty much shut down. I didn't do any running in NYC.
I got back and continued with my running schedule, however, I have to move it indoors, and you know how I LOOOVE the treadmill. I cut down to running 3 days a week instead of 4.

I have started a major diet, so we'll see how that goes in conjunction with my running. I hope the pounds just fall off!!!
That's about it. Nothing too exciting.

i-pod Running List

So this is the latest and greatest update of my i-pod running list. I just changed it up and I'm not liking it so much. Any suggestions would be great.
I throw in a little Army Cadence to keep my pace and footing so when it says AC, that's what it is.

Check on It - Beyonce
Bring Em' Out - T.I and Jay Z
Dancin' with myself - Billy Idol
All the Small Things - Blink 182
Dream Boy/Dream Girl - Johnny O
Sugar, We're Going Down - Fall out Boys
Black Cat - Janet Jackson
We Don't have to take our clothes off - Jermaine Stewart
Turn Me On - Kevin Lyttle
I Don't Care - Ricky Martin
Dirty Diana - Michael Jackson
You've Got the Look - Prince/Sheena Easton
Baby I'm a Star - Prince
I'm a Bitch - Meredith Brooks
I like Big Butts - Sir Mix A Lot
Dirty Water - Standells
Party Your Body - Stevie B
Seven Nation Army - White Stripes

Total Run Time - 1 hour 30 minutes

Now mind you, I have about 2000 songs in my i-tunes library and I cannot get a running list together to save my life. I used to only run to Army Cadence, but have since incorporated music. I've found that just because I like a song doesn't mean I want to run to it.
What is everyone else running to????
Just some FYI, I don't like techno/house/electronica......just not my style!!

Effin' Groundhog

Effin’ Groundhog. 6 more weeks of winter...that’s all I need. Although, this has been a very mild winter, so I shouldn’t be complaining too much. I just want to be able to stay outside and run. I have to be honest with you; the cold has really put a damper on my running. I use to be out 4-5 times a week running and since the temperature has dropped my ass has been slacking...seriously slacking. I just can’t get motivated in 10-20-30 degree weather, and I hate the treadmill.
We haven’t had much snow, but we are famous for getting a mid-March snowstorm in Boston. Not something I look forward to. It’s just depressing. I need to move to Miami.

I am off to NYC next week-end. I would love to maybe get in an early morning run around the city (weather permitting). We’ll see...I suspect I will be too hung over to do anything. Who am I kidding, this is a single girls week-end, all I’m going to be doing is eating, drinking and having fun! Running will be the last thing on my mind! Unless of course I meet the (running) man of my dreams (seeing as it will be Valentine’s week-end, the week-end of luvas in NYC) and he whisks me off to Central Park for that early morning run!!! Wishful thinking I know... I’ll just stick to the eating and drinking…..that always seems to work for me.
