so today i went to spinning class at the terrible hour of 8am and it was canceled due to lack of participants. lame. it was extra lame because i was running late in the morning and had to literally run to the gym. so then, i had a run on the treadmill (boring) and then i climbed many stairs on the stair master. lame way to start a week. in other news, i am starting a new book:

:: the history of love - nicole krauss

also tonight for dinner, i am making shrimp stir-fry. yum!

this morning i ran and it was extremely hot. it was terrible. i ended up having to walk a lot because it was so hot. i decided yesterday to increase my running workouts to 1 hour which means i need to include some walking. anyways, i ran/walked 5 miles which is good i guess. it was just so hot. oh and the path i picked had very little shade.

also, i made a pillow last night for my couch. ill post a photo when i get my camera back. i was able to successfully install an invisible zipper. :)
