Weekend Update

I didn't have much to say on Friday in fact I was feeling kind of sick overall and had very low energy. With nothing to blog about I just read a bunch of blogs that day. I finally started to feel normal and got my booty to the gym on Friday to get my 5 miles in. My motivation was that I could sit in the sauna once  I was done.

Saturday I some how managed to get my bum to spin class. Even though it really wanted to just sit on the couch and drink coffee with the munchkin while watching Scooby-Doo. I think this was the worst class in a long time, the instructor was good I just wasn't feeling it and it was beyond hard. I felt like a rookie.

Sunday called for a long run. I really wanted to get 10 mile in since my last few long runs have sucked. I decided that I was going to do it on the treadmill even though I really need run outside. I am not going to lie one of the reasons I wanted to do it inside as I knew it would be easier on my body. I set the incline to 1% and started on my warm up mile. After two miles my normal need to go pee kicked in so I extremely thankful to be at home instead of our on a trail. After a quick break I hoped back on the treadmill and started Dontown Abbey up and continued on my way. My treadmill stops at 99 minutes, so when I hit 7 miles in 94 minutes. I stopped reset the treadmill and continued on for the last 3 miles in 37 minutes. The last few miles were much faster then they were supposed to be but I felt surprisingly good so I just let my legs go. After my run I had promised to take my daughter to the pool, I honestly think that hanging out in the pool is best recovery for my legs.

This week the plan is simple, spin, run, rinse and repeat. Oh and Saturday I am going to an informational meeting for the 3-day walk! I am planning on joining my aunt for this walk in San Deigo in November. I am hoping to recruit a few more people to join us, so let me know if you are interested. I have a place for us to stay pre and post walk.

If you read the Hungry Games you should find this funny, if not what are you waiting for read the Hungry Games?

  3. I loved the Hunger games and want to see the movie too.
    I'm glad you watch the Swedish version of the Girl with the dragon tattoo because the Swedish actress is so much better casted than the US version. I haven't seen the English version yet because it can never be as good as the original.

    And 10 miles on the treadmill? Girl you rock! I can barely stand 30 minutes on it. I really hate that thing :)

  4. woohoo for the 10 miler! I hope you're feeling good today! I have my first 10k this weekend and am a nervous wreck because I am totally not trained...it was raining and raining and with no treadmill and days without running, I've been spending the last few days kicking it up but not sure if it's enough time...SO frustrated!
