Welcome to the Funplex

I can not believe that one of my favorite bands - the B52's - came out with their first album in 16 years. The last time that they came out with an album was during my Junior year of High School. OMG...I feel so old. The last time I saw them in concert was in 1997 - over 11 years ago. When I received an e-mail advertising their new album, I was SO psyched about it. In the end, I...want...the....album. Thank goodness iTunes sells it much cheaper and I can download it directly to my iPod.

Anyways, I had a great day off today. I spent most of the morning and early afternoon working on my taxes. They are FINALLY DONE! I love the feds because they are giving me some money. On the other hand, I had to do two state returns since I was part-year resident in both Minnesota and Illinois with a job in each state. I ended up getting a very small amount back from IL, but owe a lousy $9 to MN.

After I got my taxes done, I headed to the gym and completed my 40 minutes on the the eliptical machine. I was able to completely work harder and faster than I have ever done before. I wish I was running outside instead, but on a semi-taper this week and need to baby myself for the race on Sunday.

Today's workout
40 minutes - Elliptical machine
4.22 miles
9:22/mile - Can we say FIRE, baby?

Tommorow - 40 minutes running OUTSIDE! 200 days until the Chicago Marathon!!

Great job on today's workout.

Kudos! Are you doing the full marathon or are they offering a half as well?

Now you know, it's best to only get a little back or owe just a tiny amount as it means you didn't give the gov an interest free loan right?
