Other: I’m becoming quite the little yogi/pilates…doer? Idk what you call someone who regularly does pilates. But I’m already noticing an increase in flexibility and stretching more has brought me closer to my goal of doing the splits :) I drank more water this week, stuck to the training plan while listening to my body and taking one rest day, and did everything I needed to earn the rewards I set for myself aka time to shop for school supplies :) Also it could be just an illusion but I think I’m starting to see more definition in my arms! Ahhhh! :) Also accomplished this week was buying & reading most of “Ultra Marathon Man” and volunteering at a local triathlon. Oh and trying all those new recipes :) Definitely a successful week <3
5 miles of rolling hills, p90x ab ripper x, 50 pushups. To do today: shower, brunch with a friend, volunteer @ triathlon expo <3, stop by running store for magazines and flyers, stretch, read Ultramarathon Man, out with two of my best friends (twins) who just got back from vacation in Greece :)
Trained like a champion today :) Sculpting Pilates/Yoga Fusion, 6.5 mile run, POP Pilates Intense Ab Workout, 50 pushups, intense arm workout, weighted lunges and squats, Deep Stretch Vinyasa. BOOM. The deep stretch yoga wasn’t as stretch-y based as I was expecting, but oh well. Also I bought the book Ultra Marathon Man by Dean Karnazes and I’m a SUPER fast reader so I’m already at the part where he’s about to attempt a marathon on the South Pole. He’s absolutely insane but so inspiring just in terms of that love and passion for running that you can’t really explain, it just happens. I’ll post some of my favorite quotes and things when I’m done, but so far I’d definitely recommend it :) Oh and I’m volunteering this weekend at the triathlon I did a few years ago! Tomorrow is packet stuffing and answering questions at the expo and hopefully I’ll get some cool free stuff and then Sunday I’ll be cheering on runners and bikers at the turnaround and handing out water :) I’ve never volunteered at a race before and it’s always been on my to-do list so I’m happy to be finally making it happen because if you’re a runner you know what a difference a great bunch of volunteers can make during the last few miles of a race <3
