I got tofu stir-fry for lunch. Yay protein. I ended up not eating most of the vegetables, though, which was kind of unfortunate.
Having had two separate conversations yesterday about how the elliptical is no-impact, especially since the conversations included talk of one-mile times, I decided to do the treadmill today. I've been averaging an 11+ minute mile on the elliptical interval program, pushing myself.
I did the interval program on the treadmill (which alternates between incline 0 and incline 3). It took me some time to figure out how the treadmill worked, so I did varying speeds -- highest was 5mph. By the time I finally did one mile (17 minutes!) I was ready to die. Hurting especially at the bottom of my ribcage. So I walked most of the remainder of the half hour -- though I could totally walk at 3.8 mph. I actually hit mile 2 at 30:21 -- making that second mile 13:21. Clearly the lesson here is that my body doesn't like running.
Apparently there is a pause button somewhere which I hit. "PRESS SPD UP TO CONTINUE." Yeah, super-helpful when I see nothing marked that. So I accidentally ended a little early (33:49, at 2.22mi).
Yeah, I was definitely not doing the rowing machine after that. I really just wanted to strip off all my clothes and take a cool shower. In retrospect, I could have gone to the front desk and gotten a towel and taken a quick shower, but the cool and misty air outside turned out to be sufficient. I was still glad to take my clothes off when I got home, though.
Also: icon love!
aka, Amy Foxlet love. She also filled a cap request for me, so I have another HIMYM icon now, too.
aka, Robin (boobs) love.
Dear LiveJournal: This icon cap (currently at 137 for Permanent Users) displeases me. Okay, I reached the point some time ago wherein I forget the existence of lots of the icons I have, but when I pull up the page and refresh my memory I don't actually want to delete any. I would give you money for more icons, honest.
Edit: lunabee34 has posted her Best Lesbian Erotica 2007 response. Yay! ::goes off to read::
In other news, I am seriously considering withdrawing from my Medieval Church class (which, okay, I probably can't even do at this late date). I had a vague idea for a research paper, but one of the other grad students ("now you are six" the prof said in one e-mail -- hee!) is doing basically the same thing and his statement of purpose is so much smarter and more thorough and engaged and everything than I'm even inclined to be. I haven't been doing the class readings the past few weeks, I have no interest in the research paper... I would like to catch up on the readings, and continue attending class, but I have like zero interest in having any obligations of productivity. ::fails at being a student::
