Welcome Summer! It is officially here in our house because the boys finished up the school year last Friday. No more drop off in 3 separate locations!!! It has been a busy week and there is too much to recap...even for bullets. Here is a quick rundown....
Long Run PSA:
Map out a route prior to heading out on a long run or your 7 mile run will become almost a 9 mile run. Yes, I did almost two extra miles on my long run on Saturday. To my shock and awe, I did it in 1:37, my fastest long run average pace yet.
How did 7 turn into almost 9? I turned onto Minnehaha Parkway (a beautiful place to run if you are in the area) but it twists and turns and when I finally came up to a street I recognized, I was all turned around. It is quite humorous considering I do know the area the back of my hand....I just never ran that part of the parkway before. The good news is that it was perfect running weather and I felt great. It was a great surprise and I rewarded myself with a cold one of these:
Jillian (She should drop her last name because EVERYONE knows her):
Looking for a new way to torture yourself?
No More Trouble Zones is the workout for you! I thought that there could not be anything worse than Shred. Well, I was wrong. This woman is crazy! This DVD made me say words that would make my mother cry (and nothing shocks her)! During one point of the workout there were tears rolling down my face. It is one thing to get the dry heaves, but this one made. me. cry. It was during the move called "Surrenders". It was as bad as it sounds.
My friend Leah lent me this DVD to try. I hated it so much that I went right out and bought it. It will be a great cross training tool and if I keep it up I might even see my abs without plastic surgery.
Running Grandmas or the Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon? Look for me!!! I will be at the finish line handing out medals to the finishers for both the half marathon and the full marathon. Also, Chubby Hubby and my oldest son will be helping hand out t-shirts. I am very excited to have such a fun job handing out the hard earned bling. My son is also over the moon to be helping out at such a big event. He wanted to know if he got a t-shirt (yes he does and even a finish line security pass). I think someone is going to have a cool show and tell when school starts up again. Ha!
Today's cross training included level one of Shred, a 5 mile walk with BFF, and tending to a fevery, puking baby Diva. It is summer, shouldn't this crud be done by now?? I am looking forward to catching up on all of your blogs. I have been reading some, but I haven't had the brainpower to comment.
