…if you are brave enough to accept!
I took Sunday off as a complete rest day so today was a cross train day. The Hubs and I rode our bikes (the long way) to the gym. After some weightlifting (abductors and adductors to be specific) my legs are sore! I try not to do too much weightlifting while I am marathon training, it makes my legs too tired and recovery is slow. I bet it would be good in the long run, which brings me to my brilliant idea: Legs Love Lunges Challenge. Dun dun dunn!
Here’s the deal, if you so wish to accept your challenge: Take a photo of your legs, those powerful running legs of yours! Post it on your blog saying that you accepted this challenge. And for the hard part: Do lunges at least 3 times a week from tomorrow, Aug. 10 until Sept 10. It doesn’t have to be a lot of lunges, start with like 10 lunges in your yard and turn around and do 10 back. But see how you can build it up over the course of one month! I want to SEE if I can see a difference in my legs! I am certain I (and you if you join) will feel a difference in the strength, especially in hill running!
So here are my leg pics:
So, lets see what lunges 3 days a week can do! Let me know if you accept the challenge!!!
And totally random but do any of you know anything about stroller speakers for an iPod? My friend Em lives in Italy (if you want a blog to read that will whisk you away to Italy check hers out HERE) and she is traveling home to the US with THREE kiddos! Talk about a MARATHON! She is wondering about the speakers for her stroller…any info is much appreciated!
Tomorrow is 4 miles with AN the RB. Sad sad sad….she is leaving me soon. She is packing up and moving across the country. I think she wanted to leave me before I had the chance to leave her. But soon enough we will both be on the East coast! Not close enough to be running buddies but a mere 7 hour train ride away. There are already plans in the works for the NYC Marathon! Woot woot! And she will be joining me (and my friend Breaking Pace and East Coast Jessica, not to be confused with Official Race Crew Jessica) in Vegas on Dec. 5th for the Rock n Roll marathon! So it’s not really going to be good bye, but see you later. So we need to get some runs in together while we still can. I’m going to miss these runs with her…
And for your viewing enjoyment, here is a photo of Bat Family at my son’s Batman birthday party:
Today I am grateful:
That we made it through my son’s birthweek. I think we celebrated for 5 days straight. What is up that THAT?
For Lazy Dog. He’s pretty much awesome.
Cool breezes coming in my window.
