And I see you Erik! Good job to you too!
I went to Tracey's in Ohio for a few days, and I did get some workouts in while I was there. John and I went for a 2-2.5 mile run. Then, Tracey had to fill in for a friend who is a Zumba instructor, so we went to a studio to get all prepped for her class. We did Zumba for THREE HOURS. Then an hour and a half later we went and did her hour class!! That's four hours of Zumba in one day! I pulled a hammy, which sucked.
After John and I got home, we went for a run, but because of the hammy, I was only able to do a mile, tops, and we walked the rest of the way home.
The next day, we got the kids back, and Jonni had the stomach flu. She was sick for two-ish days, and I nursed my hamstring. Two days after she got well, I got sick, and was sick for four days. It was two days before I felt up to doing anything, and then it was Thursday and I had the race on Saturday! So I went and ran 3 miles to see if I could do it, and I did! I walked one and a half minutes, not all together, but I did it! Which really wasn't the smartest thing to do because I sure was feeling it race day!
And then of course, on Saturday I ran my first race ever! It felt really good to finish that race. Unbelievable. You know, mentally. Lol! I was fine physically after a minute. When you think about where I was five years ago, finishing this race really was unbelievable. And to do TWO 5k's in one week? What should I do next? The answer? ANYTHING I WANT!! BOOYAH!
This was before the race when I was still somewhat perky. ;)
And right when I finished. Somewhat less perky than before. Lol!
