On Thursday I headed to workout class and knew I was feeling good. It was COLD outside compared to the heat wave we had this summer but it felt great. You know that great weather when you can wear shorts and a hoodie? You may sweat a little or you may be a little cold but in the end you’ll feel great? It was that kind of day. So for Crossfit/Rowing class I was with Kari and we did a kick butt workout
5 min warm up on the rowers then we had 1:30min to complete the following exercises and we did that three times each exercise
- -20 Burpees
- -15 Kipping Pull-Cups
- 25- Bench Jumps
- 10- Olympic bar squat curl presses
It was TOUGH. The burpees for example were nearly impossible to finish in 1:30min but we both made it through the entire workout! After the workout I mentioned to my mom that she looked like she was dressed and ready to go for a run. I was THRILLED that she said YES! Then Kari asked us where we were going so I knew she was in too! So the three of us headed out to Buckeye Woods park (a different path than I have been running) to do a few miles!
My mom and Kari were AWESOME. They just ran through the first mile like it was nothing and I was so proud and impressed by both of them! They turned around at the first mile and headed back for 2 miles total and I kept going to get in a little more than an extra mile. Doesn’t hurt to do another 5K right?
This run was great because I was feeling like I was really starting to get it ya know? Like I could tell my form was good, my breathing was spot on, and I was challenging my body without pushing it to an unhealthy limit. Plus, I was able to run with my mom and a great friend so that made it all that more enjoyable!! I am looking forward to maybe doing a little bit more of that in the next few weeks! I think both my mom and Kari enjoyed it as much as I did!
Went home after the run and Tim and I hadn’t really thought about dinner much. We finally decided on veggie burgers which meant an impressive veggie burger salad for me! I made guacamole for it and also added on cookies mushrooms, 2 pieces of lean bacon, and tomatoes. It was just as tasty as it looks!!
