Can I say that it is cold (its in the 60’s) and I am uber tired. Not sure why I am so tired today as it was just a normal day at the office but there it is. I need some of today’s post just to make it to Derby practice today. Cause all I really want to do is just sit next to a window, have a fire going and read a good book. Maybe a cup of hot chocolate in there.
But I can’t do that! Today is a Cross Training for my Marathon Training w/ Nike+. I mean besides that I need to get my butt to practice…there are other reasons!
Since my Spartan, which the post has just not come to me, I have been busy. Not exactly sure what I have been busy doing. It must have been something because I hate to think that I just wasted 2 1/2 weeks not really doing anything but busy work. But it seriously looks like that is what happened.
However, a few things did happen during my busy black out period. The first is that I signed up for 2 Half Marathons. Window shopping on Active is extremely dangerous! The second is that my car has decided to get a flat and a tire w/ the heavy rim, decided to land straight on my foot. Which has badly bruised it (le sigh) but the doc said it isn’t broken so that is a huge plus!
So which Half Marathons have I signed up for? Well…
So I picked this race cause…well that is because all my runner friends (i.e people I stalk online like Pavement Runner and Dani from Weight off my Shoulders) are doing this race series. Besides…I really want to conquer those LA hills.
Plus I am of course finishing my Trifecta with the Spartan Beast! It was all thanks to FXP, and my BFF/Derby Wifey Joni! I really can’t give enough credit to my Hula Hoop! I was able to get over 6, 8 and 10 foot walls because of all those small movements!
So that is 3 major races that I have planned and payed for that start in 4 months. It just doesn’t seem like enough time if you ask me. But since good ol’ father time isn’t asking me…I have no choice but to make the time work for me. Now if I could just stop dropping tires on my feet and bruising the hell out of them that would be great!
I do have a training plan…but I am still working out the kinks. Planning on sharing it this weekend in all its glory!
It has been a while hasn’t it! SOOOO many things have happened since I have last wrote here and I promise to go in BIGGER detail in Monday’s blogpost (yes you have to wait until Monday but its WORTH IT!)
But to give you a sneak preview of it….
And yes before anyone asks I am already thinking about, planning and dreaming (which is kinda frightening) for the Spartan Beast. There are 2 that I am in between currently, September 27th in Temecula (which I did my Sprint) and October 3rd in Tahoe. Which one will also be answered by Monday.
I do have a HUGE shout out to FXP FITNESS HULA HOOP! I went over a 10 foot wall, I flipped tires and I did things that I wasn’t able to do last year. And a lot of that is because of FXP. It works those muscles, but in such a fun and effective way you don’t even realize it. If you haven’t ALREADY tried it you need to! Use my discount and order yourself a FXP Fitness Hula Hoop!
Make sure you order the purple hula hoop so we can be matchy!
Okay NeverEver’s, are you ready for Motivational Thursday? Cause I sure am!!
