Go get 'em Abby!

Taper week for me... race on Sunday. It was nice to sleep in today. I'm usually up at 5 trying to figure out if I should have a bite to eat or not and off to CrossFit. Today I lazed in bed til 7 and now feeling sort of out of sorts w/o my morning endorphen rush. I think I'll have to go to yoga tomorrow just to get a fix

Tunnrida, sounds like quite a workout – lots of different things.

Pam, you want to be back at exercise, don’t work too hard, but your sanity needs this!

Powerful run this morning, 30 minutes, 3.37 miles (including a nice slow cool down where I enjoyed watching the dial on the heart rate monitor go down). Followed by a killer boot camp class – this instructor (“the Kid”) is gaining quite a following, we’re up for 3 to 12 in class, and he keeps an eye on each of us, offering modifications for weak knees, or form corrections, or encouragement to go 10 seconds more.

Be happy and strong today – you are in charge

I'm going to try to get in a heavy deadlift and power workout tonight. I didn't sleep well Monday or Tuesday night so I've been using that as an excuse to put this off, but no more.

I'm pleased to report as of starting to get strict with my diet two weeks ago, I'm down 4 lbs and just on the verge of seeing my abs again. Come on, six-pack!

Yesterday, warmed up with wall squats, free squats, light goblets, walking lunges, overhead walking lunges. Then, moved on to heavy deadlifts. Finished with low-rep jerks focusing on power.

Couldn't get out of bed this morning on account of very sore glutes.

Nik, I know you know what you are doing, but that looks like you are really pushing yourself.

I was exaggerating a little. Getting out of bed wasn't too bad; the worst was climbing down the stairs. I'm doing much better now and about to head out for an easy run.

I hear you're racing this weekend. How far?

It was a 15 mile trail race in the San Bernardino Mts (SoCal). I've run this one twice before, so am well aware of what I signed up for . Lots of big hills. As soon as I figure out how to copy the elevation profile from my GPS, I'll post it. 3 miles uphill, 9 miles nice rolling terrain (7500') and then a screaming (when you aren't picking your way through rocks and boulders on the steeps) 3 miles down hill.

As it turned out it was the best race of the season. I crushed my PR, had no leg cramps, which have plagued me in the past. And felt great at the finish. I felt much better after this 15 miler than I did after the 10 miler last month. And didn't really feel all that bad after the 10 miler.

How's the glutes? (exaggeration is part of the fun )

I was down that way last week (Vacation) and I don't see how you can run in brown air.
