FGF-Morning Lullabies

I had another musical discovery thanks to Spinning

I’ve been hearing this little ditty a lot and dig it. (Yes, I know how tragically unhip I am and am usually late to parties.) Don’t go away though…this isn’t the Feel Good Friday entry. It’s a prelude, if you will.

I’ve been meaning to ask Terri, the Spinning Instructor, who that was and Monday, I forgot to ask.

So, I came home that night and was messing around on the Itunes and stumbled across this Ingrid Michaelson girl and found the Spinning song and was just looking through her stuff and oh. Mah. Gawsh. This song right here makes me cry. Not in a bad way kinda cry neither. More of a hopeful kinda, warm-fuzzy cry. There’s nothing really to look at here, just close your eyes and listen.  I love her phrasing. This is my Feel Good Friday.

In Which Your Sista Discusses Her Working Out and Stuff

Now…for those of you out there who can run and bike like batshit crazy and stuff (:cough CLC :cough) these numbers will probably make you laugh.  But, for me, this is a record.   I know I would come in at the back of the line in a 5K but I’ve never had time like that before. I got tired by the end, but, I was pretty tickled for getting that first mile in in 11 minutes, thankyavurymuch.

I ran with my buddy Lance tonight.   Ol’ Lance is a good running coach.  He might arta look into taking up athletics on a more full-time basis.  I so dig his running mix.  It has really good music on it.  I had downloaded another treadmill training running thing and the music was the kind of stuff the Manchild listens to….screaming banging guitars or that techno-pop stuff that my stomach just can’t handle.   Lance’s thing has what they describe as “Alternative”.  I dug it. 

I’ve been going to Spinning classes the last coupla weeks and hello????  I love it!  I didn’t think I would but I love that Spinning.
