Just a little update on what's going on ..
This saturday is the Relay for Life 5k at Murray State. My step dad and I are running this one. This will be the first 5k he has actually ran, he and my mom walked the Run 4 Another back in early March. I'm excited about this race. I have been trying other forms of exercise besides running these last few weeks, so it will be interesting to see if cross training will help or hurt my performance on Saturday. Right now I have been running once or twice a week, weight lifting twice a week, zumba once a week and then kickboxing once a week. However, for the rest of this week I am going to just run and weight lift.
I am suprised at how much I actually enjoy weight lifting. This was something that I previously had no desire to do. But as my calf and thigh muscles began to really take definition, I wanted that same results for my arms as well. I've been going to an all womens weight lifting class the past few weeks, and I can already tell a slight difference in my arms. And this past sunday when we went bowling with some friends, for the first time I was actually able to throw a ten pound ball and had a pretty decent game. In fact, I only came in 3 points below my husband, who is an excellent bowler.
I'll be sure to post the results from the 5k this weekend. Pray for good weather and that we have a fun time doing this race!
