Realistically speaking, all of my miles are leading me toward the Grand Rapids Marathon—even though I have a few smaller races beforehand. And just so we're clear, I'm running GR as part of a three-person relay team that includes my mom and sister. This means I'll be taking on at least ten miles. So I've got some work to do.
I hit the gym today for a three-miler. Dang, I hate the treadmill. I pushed at a nice 9:30 pace for one mile, then I hopped off and did an 8:30ish mile around the track. And then I got back ON the treadmill for some hill work.
Suffice it to say, I was significantly pooped at the end.
Enter a mat and some core work to really top things off.
I hit up Whole Foods last week for a small stash of these Vega snack bars and one came in handy today.
What's up for the rest of the week?
Friday: 4 Miles
Saturday: Logan's Run 5K
For some reason I thought I'd be hitting up my first 5-miler this weekend, but I'll have to wait until next Saturday for that one. Next week will be a busy week—I'm getting certified to teach Piyo Live on the 10th.
Ask me how excited I am for that one. #superexcited
I mean, I'll get to use these for the first time:
My husband would argue that I have too many. (He doesn't understand these things.)
In all seriousness, for some reason, I hate being barefoot in yoga/pilates/barre classes. Our studios aren't dirty, but I just...I dunno, I just want something on my feet when I'm working out. When I saw these Nike studio shoes on clearance: #nobrainer
Question: How do you feel about bare feet in fitness classes? Are you a Piyo Live instructor? Any tips?
