Anniversary & More Running...

Happy Friday...  Today is our wedding Anniversary!

I am so glad to have married my best friend!  I feel so blessed and honored to be his wife!  I could not ask for a better partner to share my life with.  
Love you Joseph! 

Awww.... 'o) I know, moving on to today's post...

This week went by super duper fast and in the midst of all things, I failed to share this week's running schedule with you all.  
Here's what I did Sunday, Wednesday and this morning...
 I am so SORE guys!!!  I honestly can not remember the last time I felt this much pain in my joints and muscles.  I switched my weight lifting to 4 sessions in order to focus on both upper and lower body twice this week.  I have to admit that I have not been able to attend the Spartan boot-camp at all this week.  Pam is holding a boot-camp tomorrow morning which as of today, I am planning to attend.;o)

I love pushing my self into new workout routines because I love that sore feeling I get.  Now days, that sore feeling is the only way to tell if the workout was effective for me.  However, looking at my workout schedule last night I noticed that between weight lifting days and cardio days, I have not taken a full day off in over 2 weeks!! Consequently; I will be taking Sunday off from running and rest my butt off.

A little update! I will not be participating in the Spartan Race, I am simply not ready for it.  Perhaps next year I will feel differently about it but, this year it is a "NO GO".  I am glad and thankful to know that I can count on Pam's Spartan boot-camp to help prepare me for it.  I do plan to continue to work on both; balance and running.

I have become more self aware about my body's capabilities through out this whole health and fitness journey.  I find that at times I am expected to do certain things just because I put my self out there and have shared my passion for health and fitness.  

I workout because I love it, not because I feel I have to.  Prepping for this race was making me hate exercising, because I felt I had only 3 weeks to improve my running and balance.

I only myself to blame, though, I did not know what I was getting my self in to PURE HELL

I am looking forward to slowly improving in those areas and to continue sharing what I learn along the way with you all.

Are you participating in a race this summer?  How do you plan to prepare for them?

  1. It is vital in these days to have a social media presence. Many businesses overlook this necessity for future growth. It may be more important than putting in more funding. Pricing properly is key, of course. But investing more is not always the best option. Sometimes it’s better to cut unnecessary costs.
