I haven't updated the blog in almost a month. It's been crazy busy around here with finals, then a two week summer class, tball is starting up, and Jason's business expanding. Who knew that I would be even more busy without a "full time job"?So where does that leave time for running?
I will admit, during my two week class, I took a major break from running. I ran maybe four or five times during the entire two week period. That class was intense, so much so that I had a 3 day headache at the end of it. But, it's over, and I am one more step being finished with my Bachelor's degree.
But after class was over, I got straight back into running. I ran a total of seven miles yesterday. Five miles in the morning with a group of girls from my church, and two miles in the evening. Then this evening, I ran a mile after I put the kids to bed.
Dad and I are running a 5k next weekend, its in Murray, running for the Humane Society. I love a good cause, and this is, without a doubt an excellent cause to run for. With the weather being so hot and humid already this year, I think I am going to have to start running in the mornings. This is a problem for me because I am not a morning person at all. But when I run in the evenings, I can't seem to do more than a mile or two without being exhausted and covered in sweat. So here's to trying to get up earlier! I've always admired those who can get up without an alarm clock and start their day. I'm usually in bed until the first baby cries and wakes me up. Well, hopefully that can be a habit I kick for good this summer!
I've also invested in a home workout plan. Charlene Johnson Chalean Extreme. Its from beachbody, and I feel like its something do-able. Plus, the only equipment you need are hand weights and some resistance bands. My goal is after I finish this, to be able to do Insanity. I love going to kickboxing at the gym, but it's seems like because of our busy schedule I can never make it on the days and times they offer it. My goal is to do the Chalean Extreme in the mornings that I don't run.
So that's an update on how the exercising is going. I'll update this blog after the race, and to give my feedback on Chalean Extreme. Thanks for reading!
