Le Ab Rocket est arrivé!

Maybe I'm just in the mood for some Beaujolais Nouveau because, really, the Ab Rocket doesn't seem all that French. But somehow that's all I could think of since Mr. UPS stopped by my house: Le Ab Rocket est arrivé!

It's on repeat in my head and if there was anyone to talk to around here, I'd be saying it -- or maybe even singing it, which would be horrible since I can't hold a tune -- over and over. Le Ab Rocket est arrivé! Le Ab Rocket est arrivé!

Now that it has arrived, I kinda want to check it out. Just sneak in a few sit ups. Do you do sit ups with the thing? Or are they crunches? Or something else -- maybe rocket ups? Ab blasters? Dunno. I think I'll leave it be and allow my mom to use it first since it is her gift, after all.

I plan to ask her for a full review, however, which I will post here. So stay tuned!

On a more serious note -- yes, there is something more serious than the Ab Rocket -- I had a crap run last night. Crap because of my crap bunion. I'm bummed. Things have been going so well since my silly ankle injury and now my bunion is acting up. I feel elderly.

It's my fault and I shouldn't be surprised because I did wear high heels to my party on Monday and they always aggravate my bunion (right foot, big toe). But I didn't expect to be quite so sore during my run yesterday. I found that the pain wasn't as bad when I sped up, so I kept my pace fairly quick and was able to go for a few miles. Once I slowed down, though, I was in serious pain. And walking afterward was really tough. Today, I'm more or less pain-free so I hope to be able to run again this evening. Keep your fingers crossed!

I'd be curious about that thing too, even though I hate sit-ups and crunches of all varieties.

I hope the pain is not too bad for your next run.

Melanie said...

Crossing my fingers for a good, pain-free run! Your french is great! Hope your mom likes it :)

J said...

I hope the pain goes away - my aunt had bunion surgery but I think she still has some pain sometimes and its not fun!

Roisin said...

I have bunions too (oh the joys of being a dancer!), so I know of what you speak!

And I expect a full ab rocket posting toute suite!

tfh said...

Ah, the silly phrases that go on mental repeat. Hope the bunion pain goes away. Darned high heels.

Diana said...

Ouch! I hope the pain goes away quickly so that you can run smoothly again!

You have an award on my blog:)

BeachRunner said...

High heels may look great, but they are evil I tell ya, eeee-VIL.

Vava said...

Good thing you are pain free today, and good luck on your next run. When you give that Ab Rocket to your Mom make sure you shout slogans at her ala Reiner Wolfcastle of the Simpsons when Homer discover a gym: "Go past the max! Master your ass!" etc...

*aron* said...

ouch!!! stupid high heels! hope it feels better soon!

Julianne said...

You got it already!? Cool!! Your mom is going to be sooo excited!

The Happy Runner said...

Yes -- it came so quickly. I couldn't believe it. I ordered from Amazon (free shipping). I guess they're pretty fast.

D10 said...

I can't wait to read about what your mom thinks!

I feel elderly some days too.

Marcy said...

Bummer on the bunion :-( Sounds VERY painful.

Don't even get me started on feeling elderly LMAO!

Hope your bunion goes away and you get yourself a nice comfy run. Fingers crossed!

RunToFinish said...

Mark said...

God luck with the pain-free running. I know when I get going I will often ignore it and pay the price later..careful! :)

Hello everyone!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I make money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my web site to get additional info.
