SBBC recap and Boston

I have had trouble posting my SBBC challenge post this week but it seems so minute to what is going on in the world right now. Someone- either from among us or from another country attacked us.  But either way someone attacked the running community and it hurts. But we are strong and we will stand together and get through this together. I was so relieved Monday afternoon when I heard that everyone I knew was safe. I checked on all my blogger friends and also BIL brother and family who were there running. I sat in a parent meeting with phone in hand watching text after text come in checking on me and my reaction but all I wanted was that one text that they were alright. Finally that text came in and I loudly let out a huge sigh. I stopped the meeting just to fill everyone in. No one knew that the attacks had happened. We finished the meeting and I drove straight home skipping my run for the day. I sat and watched a few hours of news until I couldn't watch anymore. I did not sleep much that night just confused on the WHY?? Yesterday I ran 4.09 miles in memory of the bombs going off at the 4:09 hour mark. My fastest marathon is 4:12....I could have been approaching the finishline then. It is scary and it is one of the things on my mind has I pushed through my run yesterday. #prayforboston

Thank goodness for spring break I was able to get in 2 more classes at the YMCA. I LOVED the class Piloxing. It was so demanding and switched up every song, kept you on your toes!! Then also this week I did some outdoor work to get in my workouts! Our driveway is .21 of a mile long and we raked all the stones back on the driveway after plowing all winter. What an arm/ab workout!!

#Sbbc #besfoot week 4

This week I kept up with my yoga for the most part and really tried to get 2 hours a day as well. With spring break starting on Thursday I was really eager to get some different workouts in with all my extra time. Thursday we were a little more lazy than I wanted to be. We had company that I wasn't ready for so I rushed around and broke a sweat vacuuming and dusting and getting laundry around. Then we hung out on the couch visiting and watching The Hobbit. Once they left I finally got Bri off the couch to walk outside.

Friday Heather and I started early with our workouts and I just kept moving all day. We got in the Muscle Mania class (that kicked my butt) then went right in to Armit Yoga that was so relaxing, though my mind was everywhere for the whole 1.5hours. I got home and Bri was ready to stack our firewood. So I quickly ate and got out there for 2.5hours. We started by walking it up the hill but eventually did use the wagon. But I was dying the whole time since my arms were still tired from the Muscle Mania class. Then at 3:30 I met up the Family for the Friday Fun Run! It was a hard run bc we were running into the wind for the last mile.

Saturday we did a lot of errands and walking then headed out to the parents to do a egg hunt with Ella. So other than all the walking and running around finding eggs I didn't get in a workout. Though I did get a good sweat at ATT when they tried to pay me to leave Verizon!! Crazy I tell ya, I told them I plan on leaving Verizon but once my contract is up in a month.

Sunday was a very fun day! We started our Easter off by finishing the wood stacking job :) We then headed out to the parents house for Easter lunch. Before we ate we did a little 3mile run so our bellies were ready to eat!! I would have loved the run but it was very cold and raining. I got inside and got out of my close ASAP!

So here is a full recap of the week:

Monday: Bob Harper DVDs for 45mins, Arms 14mins, Yoga 60 + Freggies and 64 oz
Tuesday: 5mile run 46mins, arms 14mins, abs 18mins, yoga 30mins + freggies and 64 oz

Wednesday: 2mile walk 45mins, yoga strength 30mins, arms 14mins +freggies and 64 oz
Thursday: 2 mile walk, 60min yoga strength, + freggies
Friday: Muscle Main class, Armit Yoga, Stacking wood, 2.5mile run
Saturday: Freggies and wish I could count all my errands!!
Sunday: 3mile run + freggies

Bought a new Jillian Micheals DVD today...I am ready to Kickbox!!!

SBBC week 3

This week I did a lot of variety adding in some WOW workouts and other ab workouts. I also got out and walked with my dad after the race on Saturday. He was booking it!! I am proud of my ability to workout even with traveling home when I was so busy! I also shocked myself by getting first place in my AG in the race on Saturday. You know it pays to be 30yrs old when you place 101st overall but you got 1st in your AG. Yea there were 59 girls in the 15-19 age group and I am pretty sure ALL of them beat me!!

This weekend when I was home I also worked at an indoor triathlon  That was awesome!! There were 26 competitors and they were of all physical abilities! I worked the treadmills since I knew how to do a quick fix or catch someone if they were falling off. (Yes we had a lady not jump off when she hit stop and went flying backwards!!) So this is how it worked, they had 15mins to swim as many laps, 15mins to bike as many miles and 15 mins to run as many miles. I now think I could do that! Maybe next year!!

Goal for this week is to get some quality runs in and more ab workouts.

Monday: 30 walk in the snow, 30 min abs, 60min yoga + 7 servings of freggies 64 oz water
Tuesday 40mins hills, 17mins walk in snow, 60mins yoga, 10mins abs + 67 servings freggies 64 oz water
Wednesday 50mins zumba, 12mins abs, 20mins WOW, 30mins yoga + 8 freggies 64 oz water
Thursday 60mins zumba, 60 mins yoga + 7 freggies 64 oz water
Friday 26min run before school + 7 freggies 64 oz water
Saturday 5k run 24:32 and 2mile walk 36mins + 7 freggies 64 oz water
Sunday 2.25mile walk on hills 53:01, 15min abs, 60min yoga + 7 freggies

SBBC and Wellness challenge week 2

Last week I ended with 51 points for the SBBC challenge and my goal was to beat that this week. Last week I averaged an hour to hour and half each day. This week I got 2hours in almost everyday of some sort of exercise. I even pulled out my bike on Sunday and have had it with me all week. I would have to say that both these challenges have my competitiveness going crazy. At work there are rumors people are cheating (people out all week with the stomach flu but still racking up 2hours of exercise a day!!) I don't think you can actually count puking though it does hurt your abs.Anyways.....

Here is how my week 2 went:

Monday: hill workout 3.1 29:10, and 30mins yoga, 1hour zumba plus 7 servings of freggies

Tuesday: 9.73 bike ride 43:44, 30min Bob Harper DVD, 1 hour yoga plus 7 freggies servings

Wednesday: 5 mile pre work run 50mins, 60mins yoga plus 7 freggies servings

Thursday: 1 hour zumba, 1 hour yoga plus 7 freggies servings

Friday: 30 min Family fun run, abs with manda, 30mins yoga

Saturday: 5k race 24:50, hike in the snow around the house 15mins

Sunday: 3.5 mile run 32mins, abs 10mins plus 30 strength, yoga 1hour

Now my freggies ready for the week. I am trying out Kale for the first time and it smells...does it usually smell??
