Fitness Friday 6/21/2013

I did it! I PRed on my Half Marathon. To read the post race report, go to Double Creek Half Marathon Post Race Report 

I was really sore after the race. So I took a couple of days off from running.

Monday, I did manage to make it to Boot Camp class.

Tuesday was my first day back to running. Lil Man and I went down to the river front and got in 5 miles. It wasn't easy, but my legs (for the most part) felt decent. I averaged a 9:33 pace with the jogger so I was pleased.

Wednesday was cross training day. I've decided that on X-training day that I want to get at least 45 minutes (an hour would be idea) each time. I really want to burn some fat. So I'm going to try to ramp up my cardio, along with making sure that I do strength training 2-3 times per week.

Thursday, I ran a couple of miles at the gym. And then I did a group fitness class. We used the Power Plates machine. I'm still not too sure about that. Although, I'm starting to feel some soreness today.

Today, I ran trails. The temps were nice. It was a really nice early morning 5 mile run. We got in some really nice hills.

I have a 9 miler on the schedule for the LR this weekend. Overall, it was a nice fitness week.

    I've never used body glide before, I actually use a cream that's actually a nappy rash cream, but it's awesome cause I use it not only for any rubbing or chaffing, but as a lip balm too, and too sooth my excema... the list goes on.
