BOWC

Day 30: Finish strong

When given the challenge to finish strong I thought, "yeah, yeah, sure." I was skeptical that I would actually rise up and meet that challenge. After a long month full of exercise whose end seemed defined by injury I wondered what I could possibly do to challenge myself.

My answer to that question: Interval training.

Day 30--THE FINISH LINE

I crossed the finish line today! 26 workouts in April rounded out with the Jackrabbit running class tonight. It wasn't quite the triumphant finish I was hoping for, but I'd been sick earlier in the day, so I was just happy that I went out there and did it.

April showers bring May powers

I'm psyched to begin the May BOWC in just a few hours! In fact, I'm headed to the Dodge Y right now to do 30 minutes of HIIT, 30 minutes of steady-state cardio and about 45 minutes of strength training. Good luck to the rest of the May challengers!

Day 29: Come on legs!

Yesterday was run club day. We did the Springwater Loop and chose to do five miles instead of the three. My running buddy and coworker agreed that she'd run the five with me if I promised we'd take it easy and I wouldn't go crazy and try for sub-10:00 mile averages.

Last run in April

Went running last night (Wednesday) - 5 miles with Nike Club on the Springwater trail! I had been feeling skeptical about running 5 miles, but my running buddy talked me into it, and I am so glad! Thanks running buddy! You're amazing!

Ran it in 48:33! Awesome!

Clumsy Pilates

Clearly I am beginning a love/hate relationship with Pilates. I love that it focuses on core strength, and I love the toning/strength building aspects of it. Yesterday, however, was not one of the days where I was reminded why I like Pilates.

Day 28: It's called circle swim

You know how we have these rules for which side of the road you drive on? Have you ever thought about how efficient that concept is [ignoring, of course, the inefficiencies of fossil fuel]? Wanna know something cool? Swimmers have a similar system. It's what allows swim teams to have 50+ people swimming in the pool at a time. We like to call it "Circle Swim" because you swim in a circle.

RISE UP!! (or...if i were reincarnated, i might be a gay, african-american spin instructor)

tuesday night: it was a great way to begin to bring this challenge to a close. i might not have reached 26 workouts but i've tried and have certainly worked out MANY MORE times than i would have otherwise.

Day 28

Tonight, I went to a Pilates class after work at the Rock Center NYSC. It was great--one of the better Pilates classes that I've been to in a long time. I can tell already that I'm going to feel it tomorrow. Which is fine because tomorrow is my last day off--and then running class on Thursday for my 26 days!!
