Lunges & Poopy runs

For some reason, lunges don't work for me. I am sore for 4-5 days after I do only 10-20 of them, weight or no weight! I did 20 yesterday with a body bar, BIG MISTAKE! My quads are screaming for help. I feel like I should have pretty solid leg muscles but I think they are actually pretty weak! But, still, I hate lunges!

Today's run was crappy. I should have gone outside (it is beautiful out there right now!) but I don't live in a step out the door and go'area so it deters me from going out as much as I'd like to. Today and yesterday I've had stomach issues which are killing my runs. My quads were burning, I was hungry, it was just one of those days. Didn't I just fix my playlist? Why am I still changing the songs to get to a better one? Overall crappy run day. Maybe I'll try again later.

Motivation has been lacking lately. I feel like I haven't had a good run in ages, but really, I had decent runs on Sat & Sun. It just feels like forever when you have 2 bad runs in a row!

Music usually gets me going, and I added about 4 new songs yesterday but I guess the old ones are boring me. I need some new songs. What do you listen to when you are running? What are your top 5?

MY TOP 5 SONGS for 6/24/08
  1. See You Again - Miley Cyrus
  2. Kissed a Girl - Katy Perry
  3. Shake It - Metro Station (got me started this morning!)
  4. Run the Show - Kat DeLuna
  5. Dangerous - Kardinal Offishall
Imix I posted as a trial a while ago - it is outdated from the Philly marathon 11/07.


  1. Music really makes my runs too. My latest fav is Say Yeah by Wiz Khalifa.

    Regarding sugar - I can't say that I never have sugar, bcuz I break down once in a while and have a cookie or ice cream. But not on a regular basis. I drink green tea with half a splenda in the morning. Not the best, but there are so many bad things in the world, a little splenda won't kill me.

  2. Thanks for stopping by :-)

    Hmmmmmmm I guess my top 5 (for this week :P) would be: Sun Is Shining Funkstar Deluxe vs Bob Marley, 9PM ATB, Damaged Danity Kane, Move On Up Cutis Mayfield, Nothing Really Matters Madonna.
