New Trainer!!!

My awesome trainer that i was working with left 24 hour fitness, because she is awesome and has a lot of other things on her plate. Anyways, i took like 3 weeks off from weight training and then ran my half marathon and took a week off, but i knew i needed to get back in the gym and get a new trainer lined up. I still have 10 sessions left on my current personal training plan.

I went in to spin on Tuesday night and the manager was there so i talked to him about setting me up with a new trainer. There was a guy that my trainier had recomended and someone at work knew him and liked him too so i chose him.

Today we had our free intro session, sort of a meet and greet, go over my goals and did a few moves so he could see how my body moved and check my form and all that.

My new trainer has a background in body building,

So we will be going lots of weights, which i am excited about. I just have to make sure i keep on myself about my triathlon and marathon training because i am not sure he will. We will see how that goes.

I will keep you posted!!!!!

Hello fresh

Happy Wednesday!!!!!

I got a Hello Fresh box for the first time…….and last time because once I move to my new apt my current bills will exceed my current income, so I have to cut back on my fun stuff and start living cheap for awhile.

But until that point l, let’s get cooking!!!!!

I like that they put the ingredients in each meals little box.

Stitch fix!!!!!

This is my last stitchfix for a little while 😦 My rent is increasing so my budget is severly decreasing. I will now only get stitches every other month. C’est la vie.

My sad last fix until late August.

Of the 5 items I kept 1. Can you guess which one?

Cargo jacket, I love the detailing on the sleeve and back.

Stripped dress, I like the detailing at the bottom

Love the color and the style of the jacket

Love the maxi dress, the length, comfort and the design of the back

So, what did I keep?

Happy Monday!!!!!!
Today was my first day back after my week off. Oy. It wasn’t bad per say but it could have been much better…….of much worse.

I had 5 minutes left to sleep, not a lot in the grand scheme but still 5min. And the dogs, mine and my roommates who I am watching, decided to be load and make noise and wake me up. So I laid back down and gave myself 10 more minutes and ended up getting out the door 15 minutes late so my 3 mile run became a 1.5 mile run.

image

And somebody here knows the difference between a walk and a run, granted its been like 2 weeks since her bad human, aka me, took her for either so yea but she took a good 10min to figure out that we were running.

image

The human wasn’t too happy but at least I got out and did something!!!!!

Well see how tomorrow goes!!!

Do you run with a dog?
Do they ever not want to run?

Taking the week off

Happy Wednesday!!!!!

I have decided to take the entire week off from working out. I realized I have been ‘training’ since like August when I signed up with my trainer and I have definetly loved it but I am a bit burned out. I need the week break from working out to relax so I can recommit for the next big push, my triathlon and my marathon.

image

I have been and will be doing a lot of laying

image

A lot of TV watching

image

And a lot of reading and of course a lot of hydrating.

I am also letting myself eat anything I want and not feel guilty about it this week or worry about how it will affect my training.

I am already excited to get back to it next week but I really needed this break.

Do you take breaks?

How long are they?

And how often do you take them?

Seattle Rock and Roll race recap

This is my 2nd rock and roll event and I wasn’t disappointed. The atmosphere was upbeat and fun.

image

image

The medal is awesome.

image

The Expo was very well put together and had a lot of great companies show up and lots of great samples to try.

I wish they got us across the start line at little quicker but otherwise all pre-race things were well organized.

Every mile-ish there is a band to pump you up and cheerleaders along the way.

Every about 1.8 miles there were water and/or Gatorade stations.

There were energy chews around mile 8 and a Glucose drink around mile 9.5. I do wish these were more spread out,  like maybe mile 6 and miles 9.5.

Rock and Roll had enough volunteers to make everything run very smoothly.

Both of my rock and roll experiences have been positive and I am looking forward to my next one!!
