What a crazy weekend we had! So busy busy busy. As I blogged about before, we had classes and cookies on Saturday and Sunday brought us to the semi-pro basketball league in Portland to watch our elementary school's dribbling club perform before the game. The girls did a great job and what a fun way to end the season!
I am still very sore from my jiu-jitsu fitness class on Saturday. I'm not sure which exercises made me so sore, but 2 days later and I still can't walk right! Is it this 'over 40' thing kicking in? ugh. I don't think I'll be able to do my double class today like usual, but I will try. Exercise goals for the week include:
Mon: spin 1/2 hr (maybe....), cardio tennis
Wed: Spin/strength training
Thurs: cardio tennis/ run 4 miles
Friday: swim 1 mile
Sat: highly dependent on S's basketball tourney, but run 4 miles
Sun: rest or run 4 miles
I have signed up for the Cupcake Virtual 1/2 Marathon so I need to bump up my running to reach that goal. Here is the link if you are interested:
They were so kind as to allow multiple runs to reach the 1/2 or full marathon goal, so this is one I can participate in. I'm just not up to running 13 miles straight at this time. Not sure I'll ever get there! So it requires me running a few times a week to get to that number 13.1 over a two week period. Which is fine because the noreaster tri is coming up in just a few short weeks!
I'm trying not to think about it because I'm beginning to get nervous. Even though it's my first one, I'm really wanting to do well. I don't want to just finish. I want to get a decent time and not embarass myself. My parents are going to come and bring my kids so I'll have a small cheering section, which will be nice. But I still want to do well. Please don't let me be last, please don't let me be last.
Here's to another week closer to hopefully, not coming in last. Have a great day!
