Not so great!

I had a bad run. BOO!
Here are my excuses why...
1) I'll still quite sore from my workout on Saturday. Yep, my booty is sore form doing too many snatches (read previous post).
2) My eating is a little off...just a little. Dang I'm hungry...okay and I've added a glass of wine at night. It has helped with the soreness. Don't judge.
3) My knee bummed during the first mile. I get ticked off, and then lost my drive.

Boo for bad runs!

Woke up early this morning to go for a 6:00 am, and it was too dark for me. Looks like I'll be going tonight. OH how I wish I had an early morning workout partner.

J is heading to hot yoga today. I guess this is where you do yoga in a sauna. J is not a yoga guy...I can't wait to hear how it goes.

Kettlebell Workout

J and I went to a 3 hour kettlebell workout. We learned things like the "snatch" and the "turkish get-up." I'm so dang sore today I'm barely functioning. It was a really good workout. I hit some hotspots in my body that I think have never been used...think inner shoulder blades...stuff like that. It was a full body workout. Because of my soreness I don't think I'll be running for a day too, and this makes me very sad. All in all I learned a lot about form, and I think I will use some of the exercises. He wants us to add 5 or so pushup with it....dang. I'll be lucky to begin with one.

A few more runs...

Jason and I have had some good runs with our toeshoes. Both of us are sore and real tired at night. It is a good workout. It seems to have been a crazy month for parties, celebrations, and such. We need to have a major detox for the weekend.


My Toeshoes

The soreness I'm feeling from the toeshoes is pretty good. I'm sore in my calves and outer thigh. Ran again the next day in them for only about a mile. Ready to run again in them!

First Run with Toe Shoes

Toe Shoes!

I had my first run with the new toe shoes we bought at Pack Rat. I was able to run 3 times around Wilson Park (2.7 miles). I took a slow pace, with my first mile being right at 10 minutes. I tried to keep really nice form, and not stop. I kept my mind on my run, but pumped up the music to Regina Spektor. My knee feels really good! I have lost 10 pounds so far...since getting really serious. I feel good and I'm really proud of myself!
I'll try to get J to post, too. He ran in his once and really liked it.

Our next workout challenge is a kettlebell class. It is three house long! Robin may pass out...and Jason will make it through! What a stud!
