Well I made it to mile 2.4 on my 4 mile walk home last night before Peaches caught up with me. I am pretty sure I pushed myself a little too far. I was super sore last night and had to get up in the night for some pain meds. I was also DEAD tired this morning, it's amazing how tired I get.
Tonight I will be just doing a mile around my house, no hills and super slow. One of my babies had surgery to rebuild his cruciate ligament 6 weeks ago and part of his physical therapy is 'curb work'. Basically we do an 'S' pattern on and off the curb, so he gets some felxion in his knee. This is very slow going and since I am also recuperating I think his pace will just fine. Peaches will also be putting through my paces with some upperbody stuff, I use 5lb dumbbells and do most of the exercises on an exercise ball (sometimes even with one foot raised!!), so my core gets a work out too.
MandaPanda is always motivating herself with a race or goal and I have decided to follow her lead. I have signed up with three other friends for the Dirty Dash on July 14th. This is a 3 mile obstacle course with LOTS of mud pits. Some people are really hardcore, they view it as a race, but there are beer stops along the way for gosh sakes, so in reality it is pretty laid back. I don't want to be humiliated and not be able to climb the stuff so I am going to start training for it. There is also a mini triathlon in September that I have been eying....that seems a little scarier then running around in the mud with a bunch of drunk people. I am going to still have to think about that, work on that kick that fear's A**. I am looking at gyms and a personal trainer, maybe that will be the motivation I need to sign up for it.
It feels good to post that up here, not so scary when I really look at it! Yay for Workout Wednesday, let's get our sweat on!!
