I am happy to say that I did a little cardio last night! The friend and I hit up a nearby track and did some walking/jogging. It was a lovely night, mild weather, and the sun was just starting to set, so there were some beautiful colors in the sky. Plus since it was the first nice day in a while, lots of people (and dogs) were out. I only jogged about .5-.75 of a mile, but that's OK since I wasn't supposed to be doing any jogging, but it felt good and when it started to feel off, I stopped. It just felt so good to move. I've deifnitely had the running itch and hate that I can't scratch it.
This morning I had the pleasure of picking up my tile. Someone loaded it in to my little car and then I took off to head to work. Well, the car was so weighed down that I didn't like how it was driving and just couldn't leave it that way all day, so I made a detour to the condo to unload.
Since I didn't load the car up, I wasn't sure what I was dealing with. Let's just say holy crap (since that sort of sums it up). I think each box of kitchen tile weighed about 50 lbs, and there were 23 of them! That's 1,150 lbs, not counting the other boxes of tile that I also had to move. Moving them from the trunk to the floor of the basement was very similar to doing a deadlift. However, I don't usually curse when I lift. I tried to keep good form so I wouldn't hurt my back, but there's really no good way to get a 50lb box out of the farthest depths of your trunk only to put it down on the floor. I know my back will be sore, but at least it won't be injured (hopefully).
I'm just glad it's out of my car. I think my car was appreciative too!
I am going to try to hit the gym tonight for some light cardio and upper body work. Fingers crossed!
