Running Accomplishments:

Prs:

1 mile:  6:31

5K:  23:37

Half Marathon: 2:04

My first post-high school 5K, in which I thought I was going to die

The first time I won my age division.  Yippee!

My first half marathon, in which I attack Sasha

The time I beat my high school PR for the 5K (as a 31 year-old mommy of 3!)

My first 5K barefooted

 

Short-Term Running Goals:

I'm just getting back into running after a long break to have my last child.  I would like to race some 10Ks, a half, and a marathon in the next 2 years.

Long-Term Running Goals:

Be the oldest woman to complete a marathon.  Yea!  But hopefully I will also complete some BEFORE I geezer up, like, before I'm 40 for sure.  I think it would be fun to dress up really strange for marathons, like impersonating celebrities and stuff.  Except I don't really like celebrities, as a rule, so maybe I'll have to stick to the age old question of ninja, or pirate.  I say ninja. *Hyah!*

Personal:

I am happily married to James W (Cool Runnings). We have 3 boys and 1 opinionated little girl.  I love reading and I'm also a news junkie.  I am a stinker.

Monday with the MANLY ladies in my weight class.  I think Monday is going to be my day for this particularly loathsome workout.  I can't make it to any other classes this day.  And it's good for me, you can bet that.  And like almost everything that is totally good for you, it totally sucks.  Blech.  But the good news is, I won't have to do it again until NEXT Monday.  And tomorrow...lalalaaaaa!  Yoga class as reward.

My hat is off to all the used-to-be people who participated in the Relay Del Sol this weekend.  Now you are all probably tin men, or at least walking like one.  But great job, ya psychopaths!  See?  There's my hat on the floor.

I was too sore and tired yesterday from Monday's weight class.  I really don't want to keep doing these extremely challenging workouts.  I have to be able to function in less than 24 hours.  The problem is that I just don't bounce back right now, despite my growing resemblance to a basketball.  I'll give that class one more shot! 

Today I did yoga, and it was great, as always.  Easy leg track, hard ab track.

Yoga again, same instructor, and same routines.  It was a little more difficult today because I was sore from yesterday.

Weight class today.  This is my first time to do it more than once a week.  Surprisingly it went quite well OTHER than the brief moment I lost control of my bar and weights, and they rolled across the floor and bumped some chica in the hiney.  I was absolutely mortified!  Should I go get my errant weights, or make a run for it and hope no one recognizes me next time (fat chance--I'm the only prego in there).  But one of the few guys in the class retrieved them for me in a fit of chivalry, so I had to stay and finish, blushing fiercely for the next 10 min.  But the good news is that I was able to recover from the workout pretty quickly, I think.  Today was the first day I was able to walk almost normally as I left.  Progress!  I took a two hour nap when I got home and felt mostly like myself (but still tired) the rest of the day.

Yoga today!  Best EVER.  First of all, I was proud that I was able to workout within a day of my weight class, which typically wipes me out for the better part of a week.  Secondly, this was what I would call a perfect week for me--3 yoga classes and 2 weight classes has been my goal for a while.  *Whew* Finally did it.  And here's the best part:  James did it with me

*Sigh* not every man can do yoga and completely not know what he is doing and still be utterly sexy.   James was like Adonis to me in some of those poses.  I am a lucky lucky girl!  Woot woot!

Weight class, and it was traumatic.  I don't want to talk about it.  At the end of the day (in which I mostly layed around like a cow pie) I promised myself I would never subject myself to that class while prego again.  I like the results--I can already tell a big difference in my strength/tone, but it takes me too long to recover.  I gotta still be alive so I can be a mom/piano teacher/preschool teacher etc. etc.

Yoga with Manon.  That woman is amazing, and she knows her stuff!  She makes every single move count.

Yoga.  I am in the depths of despair about my hugeness, though.  Huge.  Ness.  And there is nothing I can do about it.  It's not like I am going to get smaller.  I will only get bigger.  Man, I need a cookie.  As long as you're going to get huge, you might as well enjoy it.  Although I'm not.  I'm sad today.
