Yesterday’s Workout

  • 4.21 miles, treadmill

I did end up going to the gym yesterday morning after the kid’s woke up. I’m glad that I had time to go because I much rather go in the morning than at night. I jumped on the treadmill and completed 4.21 miles. I did a 9:3 run/walk ratio. I haven’t run in a while, but I had a really good run yesterday.

Speaking of running, there is a Dash ‘n Splash 5k taking place near our house next weekend that I debated signing up for. It’s the inaugural race, which means it’ll probably be smaller, and I tend to like smaller races better because I hate crowds and feeling crowded.

I wasn’t sure if I wanted to sign up because the weather here has been 100+ degrees, and I don’t do well with the heat.

I checked the weather for next weekend and it’s supposed to be in the 80’s. The race starts early in the morning, so I signed Danny and me up for the race. The goody bag has a free pool admission coupon for any day this summer, and Dairy Queen is one of the race sponsors, so I had to do it. Should be fun!

Yesterday, after we picked up my niece, we headed to the library. But they were closed because their air conditioning was broken. Great.

Instead, we came home, and I put the kids in a giant frog. They seemed to like it.

Today’s Workout

  • BodyPump – 60 minutes

We did an older release in BodyPump this morning, so I upped my weight on a few of the tracks. I used 30 pounds for the lunge track, and it was hard. I’m sure my quads will be feeling it tomorrow.

After BodyPump, I came home and made breakfast – a bagelwich with eggs whites and a thin slice of colby-jack cheese, watermelon, and a strawberry Greek yogurt.

    Well, that is just the cutest picture of the kids in the Frog!!! I did not work out today. However I do find myself getting attached to this blog. Everyday around 3pm, there I am going to my favorites and selecting Run Eat Play. In my mind, I am doing all the exercises and making all the same food choices…go figure:) ! I will be indoors all weekend, avoiding the heat. Maybe the mall for some shopping.

  2. I live in Texas so the weather is close to 100+ for most of the Summer. It is pretty miserable running weather so you have to run at either 6am or 8pm and even then, it is in the 90’s. I like to run but usually save it for Spring and Fall.

    I did a 20 mile bike ride, running tomorrow, inside! Nothing too exciting today, working on a wedding cake and sweets for a wedding tomorrow and cupcakes for the rehearsal tonight….then I’m coming home for a glass of wine:)

  4. Way to get your workout done, and I love that you signed you and danny up for the run 🙂
