…yeah, I can cross THAT off my bucket list.
Oh wait! It WAS’T ON MY BUCKET LIST.
This morning I thought I had the flu. Or maybe a Mac Truck had plowed me over in my sleep…but no. No. I was sore. My whole body was wishing for death. Let me start from the beginning.
Thursday's are always hard days for me workout wise. But yesterday was exceptionally hard. I decided to ride my bike to the Y in the morning instead of drive the Hub’s car. I rode the 1.5 mile hilly road to the Y. I got there early so I jumped on the dreadmill, but I was not early enough to get my full 3 miler in. I ran 1.5 miles then ran to the pool to teach my water aerobics class (for one hour). I then jumped back on the treadmill to finish the last 1.5 miles. But I wasn’t done yet. Oh yeah, I had to ride my bike home.
Still. Not. Done.
AN the RB, as I mentioned is moving away, leaving me behind. Her last request was simple, or so I thought. “Come with me to Boot Camp Thursday night.” I knew this would be rough because water x + running is hard enough, throw in there a short-but- hilly bike ride and Boot Camp and I will be inviting the Angel of Death to visit. I agreed. How hard could it be anyway? Let me tell you…it was rough. Have you ever power skipped up a hill? No? Well now I have…5 times! We had to do these stations and while your partner was doing lunges (got my 2nd set of lunges for the week done), squats, dead lifts, power clings, you name it…you had to run outside to either power skip or sprint up a stupid hill. We did line sprints and other running things and abs. I was sweating. By the end I was so glad to be done! What a way to send my friend off to a new adventure, drenched in sweat!
So that is why I did not post a blog last night, I was exhausted. Tired. Sore. Hanging on to life by a thread. Resisting the white light. But now I am feeling better….a little.
We have new BRAVE SOULS participating in the Legs Love Lunges Challenge!!! Yay!! Welcome!!
Andrew Opala (I love furry animals!!)
Breaking Pace (Yay!!! My partner in Vegas Rock n Roll!)
I can’t believe all the peeps joining in! This is so fun!! I’ll check in Sunday or so to see how everyone is feeling! Sore? Probably!
And now tomorrow, 11.5 miles with Katie! I am stepping back this weekend because of the possibility of doing the triathlon on Sunday. I know, I still haven't’ decided. I am so last minute. Tall Mom hates this about me! (He he!!). I am just indecisive. There are a lot of things I want to do this weekend and the tri is seriously monopolizing much of the time. So here is the deal, you get to vote. I love letting the people vote. The kicker is though that I need to decide by the end of my long run tomorrow so that I can go to Seattle and get my packet and check in my bike tomorrow morning. Cast your votes by 9 AM PST!
Should I do the Tri?
Yes or No
Happy Friday friends!!!!
