5k hey hey

The greatest challenge is myself. Breaking through the mental barrier and getting back on the schedule. It used to be no problem getting up at 5:50am to make a 6:30am session, but lately it is quite the issue.

Went to bootcamp tonight and holy heck. It is so evident when I am not consistent w/ these sessions. I made it through the intense cardio/strength 30min and actually was the first to complete it- but I was hurting. Thankfully I am just more motivated by it and want to do better. It really is a theraputic release as well- I'm not usually a fan of going after work, but I had a lot on my mind so it was fantastic for 30 min to just be about me.

Okay so I need do something else that I always love- a 5k. Not doing the River Run this year was disappointing, but I knew I was not ready for it. Races are not cheap, so spending the $$ on something I didn't feel confident in, didn't feel right.

So looking through the Jacksonville Running Event Guide- this Saturday's Run For Cover 5k it is. I just realized that is the last 5k I did, a year ago. UG!!!! Geeze, one year later. And also, that is the one I got my best time on ever. Man, well this will be a great reality check. Anyone down? It starts and finishes in Riverside Park- 6pm. Do it!

I wasn't able to get the music down today, but here are some new album recomendations to add to your workout tunes!

Lupe Fiasco- Lasers
Britney Spears- Femme Fatal

i need of a fitness intervention!

EEK! My last post was March 1st, that's so not okay.

I really can make about 105 excuses as to why fitness/working out has taken a back seat for the last few weeks, but instead let's just move forward. Fact of the matter is, I'm just not where I should be as far as weight, measurements and general level of activity.

I spent yesterday preparing for the week mentally as well as with eating habits in mind. I FINALLY went to Publix for basics while thinking healthy and things that are attainable to cook. (by cook I mean things that are edible, lol).

Today was a good day and really, getting up at 5:45 AM to get myself to a structure bootcamp session is just what my fitness intervention ordered. This morning felt great, looking forward to tomorrow.

st. johns river runs rock.

The weather was a bit chillier than expected at 5pm...but seriously the best run is along the St. Johns River downtown- the views alone, amazing. Katie, Debbie, MC, (welcome back!) Saul and I went for a Theatre Running club job today. Started out w/ stretching on the stage... I know we are super cool. Honestly, the empty theatre is SO theraputic and just gorgeous. Ran at a steady pace and made my confidence shift up a notch ever so slightly for the Gate River Run.
