A Distance Record!


I conquered two goals this morning on my run — TWO — and managed to set a personal distance record while doing it!!

Early this morning my running partner and I set out to run up a huge hill that I found yesterday while driving around.  That hill kicked our butts!  (It was a 23 foot climb in .10 miles) My heart felt like it wanted to jump out of my chest but I made it to the top of that hill.  I was so out of breath that I didn’t even think to take a picture of the view for you guys – I guess I will have to attempt it again soon. 😉

The next goal that I accomplished was to run to our local McDonalds.  With the help of Robin I not only ran to it but past it (since she was yelling at me to NOT stop! haha).  As she said when we finally turned around “You accomplished your goal, now you have NO EXCUSES next time!”  Yes, Robin, you are right! 😉

We ran 7.02 miles this morning with one break to walk and chat for a bit.  A new personal distance record in the books!  I love running with Robin, she always pushes me to the max!

This afternoon the hubs and I were able to go on a lunch date… mmmm Sushi!  So yummy and I was able to spend some much needed time with the hubs.

I need to get off to bed, tomorrow we have a morning run planned with the kids doing sprint intervals – should be fun!!  Enjoy your night!









A slight change of plans

In exercise, as with life, you must be able to adapt.

Eaaaarly this morning I woke up to rain.  I rolled over to check my alarm, okay 2am… it will be gone by 5:30.  Yeah, NOPE!  I woke up again around 5 and texted the husband, “Aaaand no running outside for us!”.  The rain didn’t go away until later this morning… much too late to take a jog.  So I sat around pouting for a bit (I really wanted to get out and run today!) but decided that I NEED to do something.  So I put on one of my cute new outfits and decided to do a TurboFire HIIT.

Successfully finished the TurboFire HIIT 15 (just in time because my youngest was wanting to take a nap).  I took a break to put the baby to sleep, set up the older two with an educational computer game (love those for a little ME time!), and was able to complete ChaLEAN Extreme Burn Circuit 3!

(You can tell I’m a mom, huh?!  Weights in the middle of toys!  That’s how it is around here in order for me to get my workout on!!)

I am SO glad that I decided to add TurboFire back into the mix, I have missed my “soulmate workout”!!

When things don’t go as planned, don’t let it get you down.  Find an alternative and ROCK it!
