This week has been pretty laid back as far as workouts go. Maddux and I have had some nice walks (he is LOVING this cooler weather) and on Wednesday I did a brief leg circuit, which was basically 1 minute leg lifts on each side, 1 minute bridges with this purple ball that made it SO much harder, and 1 minute of squats. I repeated each exercise three times and my thighs definitely felt it!
Today somebody has been very cranky. I'll give you a hint:
|Poor zebra. He's in line for surgery the next time we visit my mom.|
I don't know what's going on with this boy. Maybe he just wanted to get a little crazy for the weekend. My wild Friday night has consisted of quality treadmill time. I ran ~3.35 miles in 30 minutes. Not too shabby for the first run post race. Although I'm not officially training for anything, I do have a 5k coming up in November and I'm hoping to snag a respectable time. It's a few days before my birthday and I invited a few girlfriends to run with me! Hopefully a few of them will be able to come out :-) Overall, I just want to enjoy running until I have to start busting my butt for the Rock n' Roll in March, and I can't think of a better way to celebrate my birthday than running a great local race with some good friends.
I'm planning on running some tomorrow. I have a number in my head, but going with the whole enjoying your run thing, I'm going to attempt to not focus too much on it. I got the link to my race pictures today and it reminded me of why I run. You know how I said I was smiling like a fool in my Crawlin' Crab Half Recap? Those pictures are proof that I wasn't lying! I don't think I've ever looked so happy in a race picture. I remember my first half marathon photos kind of scared me because I looked like I was in such intense pain. Yay running!
On a completely random note, but I mean I couldn't really leave it out, GO NATS!
|I WISH this was taken at a play off game.|
I'm hoping we can pull off another win tonight! If the Pirates can't be on the road to the World Series, I'll definitely take the Nationals!
