Where have I been and what have I been doing. Working out of course! I slacked on my workouts after the warrior challenge ended and although I was going to the gym I was doing half hearted workout. Just enough to say I showed up. Well as of the 3rd the slacking has stopped. That was the day I headed back to work, the gym and my routine. I'm back to taking classes at the work gym during lunchtime and strength training 3x a week. Oh and we have spin classes at the gym now. I had never taken a spin class but really wanted to try it. OMG that class works the holy H*ll out of you. You know how you do a workout and you want to puke but then you can't wait to do it again. Yeah it's like that. The only problem is there's only 10 bikes and it's on a first come first serve basis. My plan is to do the Tues & Thurs class and if I can't get in I'll do the Arc Trainer for the 45 minutes.
On to other great news. I CAN RUN OUTSIDE AGAIN. I got the okay from my PT and a 2nd opinion from a very trusted source and I was off. Ran 5.24 miles on Friday, slow slow run it took 1:09 minutes. Maybe I should have tried a shorter distant for my first run in two months. My legs felt like lead and my breathing was completely off. But I will not give up. I'm sticking to the outside and will get back on point before my race. Did I mention that a group of us are signing up for a 5K. I have to find one, the St Patty's day run I wanted us to do is an 8K and they are not having it. So hopefully I can find 5K in March or April.
I'm also looking for a half marathon to run. That's right I plan on plunging in the the world of running races. I know I can do it, I did it before but I want the BLING. I've got a lot more to say but I have work to do.
