Back in action!

Today’s Workout: 40 min spin; abs/glutes/hammy’s/hips

It felt so good to get back in the gym! No running this morning due to a little soreness still lingering in my right ankle from rolling it twice on Sunday. After it happened the first time you would think that I would pull my head out of my hiney and pay attention to the road. Nah, that would be too easy. When it happened the second time I almost went down. I kind of wish a photographer would have snapped a photo of it just so we could all laugh. I don’t mind you all laughing at my expense!

The plan to strengthen my glutes, hammys, quads and hips was put into action today. My hope is that this workout will help with my power, turn over and endurance. I am determined to master the marathon- even if it takes me until I am 100 years old!

US Olympian Keith Brantly was quoted saying:

Any idiot can train himself into the ground; the trick is working in training to get gradually stronger

Such a true statement! Now if I could only remind myself of this more often. On the topic of crazy over training, have I told you about the lady at my gym that has little competitions with those working out around her? No? Ahhhh, sounds like we need story time soon. I don’t think she trumps the awesomeness of my Rite Aid adventures…yet.

  1. I knew that quote looked familiar 😉 Saw it on my RW calendar just this morning! LOVE motivational quotes.

    My schedule this week has been off and I haven’t been to the gym once. I took a Hot Yoga class Sunday so at least that’s something…gym tomorrow fo’ sho’!
