I'm still so tired!

I bought this iphone app to help me build up endurance on my runs. It's called "Get Running" ( It is this voice coaching system that will interrupt your podcast/music on your iphone and tell you when to walk briskly, and when to run (week by week it increases the amount of time spent
running relative to walking. 1st week you do cycles of walk 1.5 min, run 1 min, etc). Almost every single reviewer said that they hadn't run before, but now they could run thirty minutes w/o getting winded. Sounds great!

I tried it out yesterday morning on my run/walk with Buddie. The British-accented female voice was very soothing and encouraging. By the end of yesterday's run/walk I felt great (although Buddie seemed to resentfully be trotting about 10 feet behind me - he doesn't like running so much, and he dislikes the hills - well at least the uphill
parts - I go up and down around my neighborhood). I didn't get any side stitches and I didn't end up completely winded. I just felt like it was a good cardio work out. I'm looking forward to my run/walk tomorrow! I finished off the workout by coming home to do push-ups and dips. Hooray! On my way to toning up! I swear.

I also mowed our lawns yesterday which ended up being quite a workout in itself. And, when I told my mom I mowed my lawns yesterday, and she replied, "you're just like your grandma!" Not exactly the reaction I expected to hear. But apparently, my grandma used to be the one who did everything around the house - including lawn mowing. My grandpa never did ANYTHING! What?! No wonder she's still out and about at 90 years old!

I topped off my day with some Benedryl as well as my usual Allegra-D to try to reduce the swelling of the 33 bug bites on my legs. Suffice to say, I was exhausted by the time bedtime rolled around...
