Miles to Health

I love days when I wake up with a song in my heart and a smile on my face, today was that kind of day. Felt great upon waking I just know it was going to be a great day, so nothing to do but make it a great one,even thou I am still not 100% but the thunderstorm yesterday helped cleared some of the pollens out..

 I did contact moms into moms into fitness about the 2 bad DVDs and they are sending replacement and gave me a link for a free download. Great customer service.

With a spring in my step decided to work on conquering Fierce Lean Out total body strength this is one of my favorite even though it is long at 55mins, I love the sequence strength then endurance(tabata style) then recovery/abs, 8 blocks I think all together. I mean anything that starts out with a burpee + 2 squat jumps for 10 reps got to be fun . I had planned on going outside to run after the workout but I was soaked from head to toe which require a change of clothes being lazy I decided on the treadmill moreover it was windy and a bit on the chilly side.

I pulled out Coach Troy, Runerval 7.0 and did workout #1 - 10 -30 secs sprints / 90secs recovery, did the 1st 5 at 8mph then 8.2, 8.3, 8.4, 8.5 and since I felt fine tried 10.0 okay it is amazing how people can run this pace for a long time. Recovery was @ 4.2mph with everything done on a 2% grade. To stretch things out I used Fierce Lean Out yoga hybrid which was perfect at just 13mins.

After work, even thou the temps said 60 degrees it was pretty chili so pulled out long pants and tops, met Shelby at the bike and hike and we got in the usual 4.27 miles, it was nice to see that we were significantly faster this week than last week, also I was only 2 days out from Flying Pig last week.

I need to start thinking of next year races but am really surprise how how this lottery races take their time announcing, I mean London does announce until October for an April race and it looks like Tokyo doesn't even open till August for lottery and that is a February race. Oh well patience is virtue.
