Motivation found!

I'm baaack! So glad I found the motivation to get out there and move today!!

It was a great workout indeed.

I went to running club ( I have not been able to go on Thursdays EVER).

I went early for the 30 minute core torture. I learned a lot. I like to be reminded that core is just not your midsection and your back. We worked the hell out of our hips and I hope I feel it in the morning. I learned some new things to incorporate in my group exercise classes.

After the warm up we did our 2 mile warm up. I should add that the water was a hot 85 degrees. Low humidity though--WHEW!

We had to do (4-5) 1200 meter runs( 3 times around the track) with equal recovery time. My plan was to try and do them in 5:10. I did the first one in 5:12, then 5:02, 5:00, and 5:00. The last 3 I was pretty sure I was going to lose my pre workout snack ( apple and a mini bagel). I then did a 1 mile cool down. I am so glad I went. I know how good these tough workouts will help me as I prepare to tackle the 26.2 miles this October. These are workouts that I love to hate. More hate then love at times, but I LOVE how I feel when it's over. The sense of accomplishment can't be beat. I can't wait to do it all over again next week.

Thanks Heather!
Everything has been going so well...I was scared I would not be able to meet with the group to do 18 this Saturday and somehow it all worked out...that is until this morning when Miles barfed all over Matt and the couch!! Sooooo...I need to see that he is well before I ship him to the sitters in the morning...might be a fluke puke-fest or a 24 hour bug or worse....poor baby! Wish him luck and then me luck 2nd! :)
