My gym/playground today
Training continues. I am currently training for Blood, Sweat & Beers. Today was supposed to be my first trail run, but since it is Mother’s Day I wasn’t able to get up to the trails. Instead I ran to a parking garage downtown and ran some stairs, did some hand stand practice, burpees & sprints.
I am still not strong enough to do an unassisted handstand. But I’m working on it. I love working out on this roof top. You can see a lot of the city. I looked over the edge facing West Sac & saw this mural from a local artist that I really like, BAMR
This was the first week of training for Blood, Sweat & Beers. I mentioned before that I have a friend that made me a training plan. However, I am considering training with Fleet Feet Sacramento for this race. They have very experienced coaches, and as a coach I’d love to see what their training is like for trail races.
I’ve taught myself a lot these past 3 1/2 years that I’ve been running (seems like a lot longer though). But I feel like trails are a lot different than road running & I could benefit using a training group. I’m still undecided. We’ll see.
Post stairs, sprints & other fun.
Here is the latest thing I’m working on. I got a journal. BTW how cute is it?? Cuteness was an important factor in deciding which one to get. Unfortunately they didn’t have any with Cat Friends on them. I have now started to log my workouts – not just my running. I have a training plan for running, which I write on, but it’s not very detailed. I am now logging the days I lift, run and Kaia classes and getting an actual program together.
I’ve become stronger but I want to understand program design and really see results so I’m writing it all down and focusing on my goals.
Day 1 of my lifting program. I am excited to see how my progress goes.
Today was a good training day. I had to improvise, which sometimes happens. Gotta do what you gotta do! Hope you all had a great weekend & to all the mom’s out there – with human kids or the furry kids – Happy Mother’s Day!
