You should be calling yourself a Shrimp!

So last night at the gym the amp'd abs class was cancelled... BOO! So I decided to take a 30 minute spin class instead. WOW. I don't think I'll ever be a 'spinner' but seriously, that is one hardcore workout, and I have absolutely no idea how anyone can do that for an hour. Way to much going on for me. Then I finished with a 20 minute run, and 15 minutes on the elliptical and 5 minutes on level 12 on the StairMaster. So overall I did

30 minutes spin = 6 miles
20 minute run = 2.5 miles
15 minute elliptical = 1.5 miles
5 minute StairMaster = 42 floors

I was DYING after the StairMaster too. That thing kicks your butt and I don't think I've ever been as sweaty as I was after that workout, but it felt good to workout hard and this morning I knew I would have to go out for a little recovery run. I had braced myself for rain, which us in CA should be receiving any moment, but it wasn't happening yet, so it was a nice, dry, 25 minute 3 miler.

Last night when I got home from work I found a box from Nike that I had gotten in the mail and I had no idea what was inside. I took a shower and was eating dinner when it dawned on me that my Nike+ half marathon stuff was inside! I then ripped open the box (really weird that I didn't care enough earlier to open the box, spin must have REALLY gotten to me) and found my gray finishers shirt, which is really cute, longer and short sleeved, but kind of a weird material, and my Tiffany's box. The blue box that held my finishers key chain. Well I thought, and I don't know where I got this preconceived idea, but I thought the key chain would be silver.

Maybe it's the fact that I didn't even know Tiffany's made leather key chains, but when I opened the box, I was still excited and don't get me wrong I still like it, but seriously? I dunno. See for yourself. I guess I was a insy teeny bit disappointed. It's just like a Coach key chain, and blue? It's a girls only race, and you choose blue? Oh Tiffany's.

The Tiffany's Box.

The other side of the keychain. Meh! Let me know your thoughts. I know the race entry wasn't super expensive but what do you think? Did Tiffany's let me down?

Enough with the keychain. You know what I'm super excited about? It's pretty embarrassing how excited I am about it, but watch the video below it's simply AMAZING.

So after that video I don't want any more excuses... If a SHRIMP can run on a treadmill, you can too! How amazing is that, that little shrimp with what looks like a bazillion legs can run on a treadmill. If you watch long enough they explain why they had a little shrimp do this, and oh, his name is Scamp, if you were wondering. :)

Lastly, I saw the movie BOLT this past weekend and it was amazing and I loved it! I would seriously recommend it to anyone who wants to see a good, funny movie, even if you are an adult. The hamster is just hilarious and it's really cute. Oh and last weekend I saw Madagascar 2 and it was hilarious too. I can't wait until tonight's Biggest Loser either! More drama is going to ensue, I'm sure of it.

Great job mixing up your workout at the gym!! I went spinning last night, too! Man, I sweated like a pig! Or a horse or whatever animal that sweats a lot.

Oh hmmm. They key chain doesn't quite live up to the expectations! You're right, it SHOULD be silver!!

LyndsAU said...

Awesome shirt and key chain!! :) I love it! I didn't know Tiffany's made those either! Cool!

With Love from New Orleans said...

Love the shirt..but I definitely agree...it should be silver!

Lori said...

I just got my hatphones in yesterday! I look forward to using it! Thanks for the review.

Denise said...

I don't think I have any friends on runners lounge, either. :-( I'll find you.

As for the key chain...I can see why you'd be a little disappointed. And yea, why blue??

Marlene said...

Nice quadruple workout last night! I told you Spin was hard. :)

Wow, look at that shrimp go! LOL!

Hmm, yeah, I'm not a big fan of the blue leather key chain either - love the tee, though!

Mrs.B said...

I love the t-shirt. I am a big fan of t-shirts to class :). I have always wanted to run. I did the program through a local group where you started out walking for 5 minutes running for 1. I was down to where I was even when I broke my toe. Yes, out of all things my poor toe. The biggest mistake I made was not going back :(. I am still waiting to see Madagascar!

I think I like the t-shirt more than the keychain. But, I would still use it.

Burger said...

That little shrimp is rad!

Heck of a workout too Danica...way to kick some booty.

X-Country2 said...

I've only done small-ish races so far, so all that race stuff looks pretty amazing to me. :o) The shirt alone is adorable. Although, I do agree with you about thinking the key chain would be silver. Bummer.

*aron* said...

i think i would be a little disappointed too :( next year you will just have to run the real thing to get the necklace!! i hear those shirts are great - feel like cotton but are really moisture wicking :)

WOW that is one intense workout!!! awesome job!

Jenn said...

I love the shirt, and the keychain is cute, but not Tiffany's cute, ya know? lol.

The Roberts said...

I ran the Nike+ 1/2 marathon as well. My box came yesterday and Mm shirt is brownish in color, not gray, and my box had no keychain in it! I am so bummed. It isn't too cute- but I still want mine!! Looks like Nike is going to get a call from me:)

Laurel said...

LOL! SCAMP! I love it! Like Scampi!!! I hope they don't saute him in butter!

I kind of like the keychain, but yeah. I would have thought it would have been silver too.

Great job on the workouts. Thanks for all the love on my marathon post!

Lacey Nicole said...

OMG the MUSIC with that shrimp!!! hahahahah i died a little bit. OOOH i will look for you on runners' lounge! only tom and amy are my friends, hahahaha. :) KICK-@$$ workout yo! and i agree-- i always die in spin class.

ECrunnergirl said...

I personally love the playlist the shrimp is running to :-} HA! That is sooo funny and I think he is even running backwards at one point....and DUH....diseased shrimp dont perform as well????

Ok, the T-shirt is great....the key chain is not too bad.....but I have to agree with you...blue for an all women's run?? Id rather have pink :-}}

RunToFinish said...

last year Tiffany's did necklaces.. I must say I've only worn mine a couple times, but I swear it's better than a key chain! Plus why didn't you get it at the finish? We had totally hot firemen handing them to us.

Tutu B. said...

I saw the shrimp on the Today Show...good call. If he can do it, anyone can! Congrats on the Nike Half, the t-shirt is cute. The key chain is cute as well, but when you think Tiffany's, one does normally think silver (or diamonds!)

Borsch said...

Wow..that shrimp kicks ass!

as for the key chain...eh.

With Love from New Orleans said...

Thanks! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving tomorrow!!


P.O.M. said...

I was so excited about the rain!!!
And regarding the Tiffany's thing - I don't know either. Honestly Tiffany's stuff reminds me of something a sorority girl would want. Maybe I'm too old. hee hee. But the shirt looks cool - at least it's a girls fit and not a mans fit, like most race shirts.

I'll add you as a friend on Runners Lounge :)

J said...

I thought that the key chains would be silver too! AND blue! Give me a break! I can't believe shrimp can run! Amazing!

HangryPants said...

I love the keychain and the shirt! Spinning sounds way too intense for me.

audgepodge said...

I thought the key chains would be silver, too! It's still pretty cute, though... I would add it to my key ring :)
