Name Game & The Plan

Filed under: Memes & Quizzes,Training — by InterstellarLass @ 8:45 am

My first post disappeared. Grr. 

I’ve owed this to KaraMia for almost a week now. Tag yourself if you like, and let me know if you participate.

1. YOUR ROCK STAR NAME: (first pet and current street name)
Tulsa Creek – Sounds like a good band name
2. YOUR MOVIE STAR NAME: (grandfather/grandmother on your mom’s side, your favorite candy)
Arleigh Twix – Sounds very ‘B’ movie to me.
3. YOUR “FLY GIRL/GUY” NAME: (first initial of first name, first two or three letters of your middle name)
ISte – Rhymes with Itchy. Not cool.
4. YOUR DETECTIVE NAME: (favorite color, favorite animal)
Purple Llama – Hmmm. Doesn’t have the same ring as “Blue Moon” does it? Name that TV show! Except Nick.
5. YOUR SOAP OPERA NAME: (middle name, city where you were born)
Stella Houston – Sounds more like a p0rn star name than a soap opera name. Of course, I think some of those actresses cross over.
6. YOUR STAR WARS NAME: (the first 3 letters of your last name, first 2 letters of your first name, first 2 letters of mom’s maiden name and first 3 letters of the town you grew up in.)
Lasin Wairv – Hell yeah! Here I come R2D2 baby!
7. Terrorist Name: (middle name spelled backwards, your mom’s maiden name spelled backwards) –
Allets Iksnalaw – Doesn’t sound very terroristic to me. More like a super chess nerd or something.

Last night I did the step/sculpt class at my gym. It was my first time in the class, and I think I did pretty well. If dripping with sweat within 10 minutes is doing well. I think the instructor was a sub. But she was one of those Workout Divas. Full eyeliner and tons of foundation. My skin would have been screaming for air. And the worst part? She kept breathing into her headset. PHWA PHWA PHWA PHWA FOUR THREE TWO ONE. It was distracting.

Then after, I stuck around for the PiYo (Pilates/Yoga) class. I did this class last week. It’s my first yoga-type class. And I think I like it. Especially after the high-intensity workout, it felt really good to stretch. I hope this will really help with my flexibility, because I think that’s what caused my sicatic problem. I’m not flexible, and so I hate to stretch because it hurts. And I felt very trendy with my new yoga mat and yoga mat bag. Tres chic.

And this is all in preparation to get be back in the running game. The physical therapy with Dr. Pain hasn’t been enough. So yesterday I finished a spreadsheet that takes me through running workouts starting 9/24/2006 and culminates in the running of NYC on 11/4/2007. At least I hope that’s the 2007 date. Either way, my schedule will adjust. It’s a big ugly spreadsheet. I won’t show it to you. You’d cry.

Plan A includes the Austin Half in February. Followed by speed workouts through the end of May. Followed by the start of full marathon training. Ah joy. I’m predicting three pairs of shoes. Donations accepted. Plan B is the Big D Half, which I’ve done before. This is only in the event that I continue to have issues with my sciatic.

I want this. I want it a lot. My goal is to run NYC in under 5 hours. 4:59:59 will do. Book your flights and hotels early. I want a big crowd 😉 And I’d welcome company! Come on…who’s in?

  2. I’m loving your Fly Girl name…lol

    Good for you on the step class, yes, being sweaty after ten minutes if VERY normal. In fact, the more you sweet the better, at least you know your working something. When it starts to get easy, add another step!

  3. I owe a lot to that show. That and the Sure Thing with John Cusak.

    I knew it. You’re cheating with R2. Tell you what. You can keep your R2 photo if I can keep my Linda Carter one.

  5. Ok, first, Moonlighting. And me too.

    Kudos for working out. I’ve been trying to get that routine down since the kids are in school. My eliptical is lohohnly.

  6. I don’t even wear foundation and eyeliner for “steppin’ out”, let alone step class!

    Some local freak of nature won the Pikes Peak Marathon (up the mountain and back, 26.2 miles) last weekend in 3 1/2 hours. That’s just not natural!

    What the heck’s a flygirl?

  8. My sweet intersteller adventurer…
    This year you are own your own….
    Next year though I am hoping to have lost a shit load of weight and the goal is to do a Triathlon…
    It’s a bit of a “Mummy I want to climb Mount Everest one day” type dream but it’s a goal….
    I love to swim and cycle but the running….. HATE it…
    Help me love it…. it reminds me of races at school and coming last…..

  13. WoW! Good for you for being so dedicated to your workout. I just walked my ass off in NYC. Really, we walked and walked and walked. At least I was active and can’t feel guilty for the gelato I ate in NYC! Rooting for you!

  14. […] 5. I did my step class again last night. You know. The one with the huffing instructor? Except now she’s changing it up on me! We did more ‘kickboxing’ type stuff last night. My arms hurt. My legs hurt. I like the regular step format better, but they’ve moved that class to 5 pm, and I can’t make it. I’m bummed. […]
