As I wait for the official training to start, I've been keeping busy gaining endurance and focus. Here is the last week in photo form!

Les Mills Body Pump at the gym. Love, love, love me some Body Pump! I like to strength 3 days a week and Body Pump is my strength training of choice. Head to toe muscle butt kick in an hour. Yes please! Plus the dead-lift portion of the workout feels so good on the hamstrings the day after a long run!

Anyway, I go to the gym and both spin bikes were taken. I kind of paced around for a minute but neither woman looked like she was finishing up anytime soon so I headed for my old friend, the treadmill. I kept an eye on the bikes and because I was annoyed at a failed plan, jacked up the speed and plowed through 7 miles. Um, what did I say on Tuesday? I need to get used to running 3 days a week??? This run is totally not allowed on the plan!
After the run, a bike was finally free so I hopped on and set it for a 30 minute ride. I didn't get a photo of the finished time/distance (12 miles) because I ended up chatting to two different people and the screen with my results disappeared by the time I turned back to it. This bike is for real. The 25 minute 'class' (5 min cool down) was tough! I was sweating up a storm and had rubber band legs when I tried to pry myself off the bike. I am going to incorporate it twice a week for sure. Now if only I could guarantee myself a bike when I got to the gym. It's all about me, right?? By the time I finished the run and ride, the Pump class had already started so I called it a day.

Les Mills Body Step! No picture because, well, it's just a step. This is such a fun class. It's an excellent cardio workout but unlike anything else that I do. I do it because it's fun and it makes me smile. Period.

|Hmmm...prob should take photos before the run, not after!|
USA Track & Field. After 3 1/2 hours, we passed! It's all part of a bigger plan. Some day (soon!) I hope to get my business dream up and running. This was step one and I'm super happy!
