Whoo hoo!!!! There are just *FOUR* more days until I officially begin my training for the Nike Woman’s Half Marathon in Washington, DC. I am actually looking forward to the training because it will get me back into a more formal exercise routine. Currently, I am focusing on strength training, but I hope to be able to continue with the strength training as I complete my weekly runs. A balancing act it will be, but I’m up for the challenge!
For strength training I am attending Les Mills classes: BODYPUMP and CXWORX. If I am not at the gym, you can find me in my basement hating and loving my kettlebell workout.
I started with the 5 lb. weight and the 20 minute workout and I am proud to say that I have graduated to the 10 lb. weight and the 45 minute workout. We also have a 15 lb. kettlebell in our basement, but it will be awhile before I can swing that bad boy around without killing myself! Pink Runner has been begging me to try her Pop Pilates DVD but I haven’t gotten up the courage to give it a whirl…just yet anyway!
In between my strength training and the depressing winter weather, I have slipped in a few runs. My last run was on Sunday when I completed just over 5 miles.
I have a race on Saturday, so I hope I can get out there at least two more times. I know that if I don’t, Saturday’s race will definitely KICK. MY. BUTT!
