    Daily Dare: 2 min single leg hops on spot w/ EC

    5-mile run: It's Friendly Friday, so it was supposed to be a 4-mile, easy-paced run, but I ran into an old friend of mine while running and I ended up just following him which brought me a bit farther than I had planned. Friendly Friday Five? Had a 9:00 min/mile pace!

    Surfed for about an hour. The waves were literally the smallest little things that could still be called waves. I got a few nice rides in, though.

    So after I had already gotten home and taken a shower, my friend wanted me to go back into her pool, so then I had to get back on a wet swim suit and jump over to her house (we literally live just across the street from one another). So yeah, I'm tired.

    Biked to school

    4-mile run: 9:20 pace
    We took a very hilly trail, so that was a pretty good pace.

    Has anyone seen Valarian and the City of Thousand Planets? I'm thinking of going this weekend. Was it good? I'm into the sci-fi geeky stuff.

    Daily Dare: Back Arch Balance Hold w/ EC

    Unfortunately not really much exercise today, though I've been working pretty hard so one day off shouldn't be too bad. I play piano in my church Worship Band, so that took up most my morning, and I play in a Jazz Combo. We had a long practice and then a gig right afterward. There was a little time in between that I could have done a quick workout, but whatever. My fingers got exercise??

    In answer to twinkletoes question, my dad and I are training partners. We've tested every single belt level together! (Currently 2nd-degree black) And on the flip-side of my previous comment, I get to do the same thing to him, so we're even, I guess.

    Daily Dare: Side-to-Side Chops w/ EC

    Hapkido! Also known as the only time that it's legal for my dad to put me in a headlock (Don't worry, he wasn't tooooo rough ).

    7-mile run: 10:30 min/mile pace. It's so much harder to run on your own than with a group!

    Daily Dare: Up & Down Planks. Had to do these a few years ago in P.E. a lot. Suffice to say that they haven't grown on me since then.

    4-mile run -- Friendly Friday, so I literally just jogged the whole way.

    Core Work: Was able to get 2 sets of 25 push-ups in, I feel like such a buff
    Then I see the workouts Navy SEALS do and I feel like I need to rethink my life.

    I went to see Dunkirk today! Seriously, it's an awesome movie, probably one of the best I've seen in a long time. Did you know that the British Navy (and civilians) evacuated 330,000 English troops from the beach after 6 of the English destroyers were bombed? Then civilians decided to hop in their weekend sailing boats and help soldiers cross the channel. That really struck a chord with me. I've wanted to join the military when I'm older for a very long time but in looking at the recruiting websites, cystic fibrosis is listed very clearly under the no-acceptance list. This film showed me that I don't have to just be a soldier to defend people and save lives.

    Another thing, can I just take a moment to thank my mom for how supportive she is? We went out to dinner after the movie, and I wanted to order a barbecue chicken sandwich, which had high protein, but also a massive amount of carbs (there were more bread pieces and actual chicken). Mom didn't completely say no, but she just told me that this had a lot of carbs and perhaps something else would be better. She didn't order me around, or nag me, as she's sometimes inclined to do. And then she just told me that I had been doing so good with my fitness, health, and weight that she just wanted to help me from falling off. That chicken sandwich looked really good and tempting, but her words literally filled me with the courage to choose something else. Thanks, Mom!

    Also thanks to Nielsen for the post! Don't worry, I'm gonna try wrapping a shirt or towel around the bar or something.

    Congratulations on your first pull-up! That's a great achievement!
    But be careful with those sharp corners.

    Daily Dare: Pushup + Jab + Cross w/ EC

    Biked to School

    5 miles run 9:30 pace. I was going a lot faster for the first 2 miles (about 8:00 to 8:30 pace), but then one of my friends said she was having a bad reaction to one of her medicines so I ran next to her to make sure she was okay. She's a senior, so her "I'm sick and I really can't run right now" pace is only a little slower than what my normal pace would be, but I felt happy afterwards that I was at my usual pace even with the slow up (which means I was running quite a bit faster before that, if you catch my drift).

    Did my first pull-up! I was wondering how I would be able to do those in the house since we don't have a pull-up bar closer than a park about 2 miles from us. We have one of those sliding-glass door showers, and the glass ends lower than the ceiling, which means there is a metal bar running across. It's a bit short (I can't get a full dead hang), but it will work for now, although the metal has sharp corners, so it digs into my fingers a bit.

    Thanks to inbetween for the post!

    P .S.: This is literally why I am scared of treadmills:
