Total = 4.64 Miles

Pace = 12.20 (Includes warm up and cool down)

Day 2

Runner 2

What a killer class this morning. My favorite instructor and she played my favorite CD. One of the girls in class was like I am going to knock you out. LOL! I said you will thank me later! Boo Ya! 487 calories burned.

Day 3

I did Body Flow then 3 miles on the AMT Elliptical. I have something going on with my right hip flexor so I wanted to baby it. Deciding when to get an adjustment next week before the race.

Day 4

Learn to Run Strong sent me this! Love it!

Learn to Run Strong sent me this! Love it!

Found the groove today finally! Must have been the big ole lasagna dinner I had last night. LOL!

Day 5 & Day 6

Insanity

Insanity OMG! I am so freaking sore from that class. It’s a total love hate relationship. I was planning to rest yesterday and “The Chef” said he wanted to take a hike. So we climbed Mount Garfield. It is a very strenuous hike. For me it was the breathing and for him it was the strength in his legs just having surgery 4 ½ months ago.

MtG

These trails are steep and challenging, and sturdy hiking shoes are recommended due to the rocky terrain and unstable footing. Despite the strenuous climb, however, hikers attest to the spectacular views at the top, making the trek well worth the effort.

 

Week 10 Race Week

Day 1

Runner 3

Does a Half Count?

Nice little run this am. Easy peasy compared to my last 2 workouts even with screaming quads. Going to the chiropractor for my hip flexor this afternoon.

6 x .25 (400M RI)

Total = 3.25 Miles

Time = 43.17

Pace = 13:19 (includes warm up and cool down)

So I’ve been thinking of how to finish off the year. I really want to build up some muscle and get some definition. So that’s my plan starting on 10/28.

This am the chef found a race called the “Mt. Garfield Grumble” basically it’s a race similar to the hike we did on Sunday and I said let’s do it and his response to me was “you are sick” lol!

Mt_ Garfield Grumble 089-1

Day 2

Chiropractor popped my hip back in. It’s very tender and I totally babied it this morning in kickboxing. He also recommended I wear some compression socks on the plane so my legs don’t get fatigued. I found some of “The Chef’s” teds from surgery that I will put on under my boots.

Day 3

Body flow

Hey Hey! Bodyflow felt so good this am. Legs all stretched out.

Day 4

To be determined probably a 2 mile tempo run.

Day 5

Golden gate

Bike riding over the Golden Gate Bridge
