3 Things Thursday

A couple of people do this on Thursdays so I figured I would too, so here goes:

1. I love So You Think You Can Dance!  It is so awesome and the dancers are amazing.  They are just all around amazing, but if you really sit down and think about the amount of time and energy that goes into learning all of these dances, plus practicing multiple dances and doing them as well as they do them.  It is really mind boggling.  This week they learned and perfected 5 routines.  Some in genres that they have never danced before, or at least before being on the show.  Awesome!

2. I think I might be crazy, but I think I'm getting faster.  I've only done a couple runs with intervals and a few long, slow runs, both of which are supposed to help with speed (right?) My last few regular runs have been faster average pace.  Hmmmm It's probably all in my head, but whatever works!

3. It's so hot outside I think I might actually melt at some point.  I am a winter person, I would much rather be freezing than in sweltering heat (yes I'm dramatic) Really though, the heat indexes were in the 100 degree range today with ridiculously high humidity.  Yuck yuck yuck.  Dave has a softball game tonight, I think I will be missing it tonight.  Sorry Babe!

Happy running everyone!  Stay cool!


  1. I am totally with you on number 3. I would rather have to avoid areas that might have more water puddled up or hints of ice versus running and sweating up a storm before I've even gone half a mile!

  2. totally agree w/ #1 and #3. I can't wait for the finale tonight! I think I like kent best, but Lauren is so great too. this is the worst summer I have ever experienced (Well except maybe 3 yrs ago when I was 8 months preg & it was almost as hot)
    So cool your getting faster!!

  3. Interval training will certainly help with the pace and speed! Keep up the good work and hopefully you wont melt! that could be messy! ;)
