Hi.

Welcome to my journey to Boston. I'm counting down the days and the miles to the July 28 race to qualify!  It's going to take a little sprinkling of yoga, running and weights to get there, and I hope you find inspiration to add some or all of these to your own life!

I had good intentions today.  Ready to jump into this training program. With both feet.  On all fronts.  100% good-for-me nutrition.  Circuit workouts.  Pre-class yoga time for myself.  Pre-class journal time for myself.  8-hours of sleep.

But, like most regular folks (I have no superpowers just because I'm a trainer y'all), I didn't follow through with all of those.  I went back to bed before teaching my 6am class, rather than use that extra hour for a short yoga flow and some reflective journaling.  I was probably so tired because I didn't set myself up well for good sleep the night before.  And I probably didn't sleep well last night because my body was overloaded on junk from a weekend of concerts and race celebrations.

 just do it.

I did get some things right today though.  I made sure to get some circuit work in and a HIIT session after.  I made up a quick full body circuit of some of my favorite (except plank rows) moves.  I'm feeling a little lost without our FitCamp routine!  Here's what I did:

  • 10 deadlifts
  • 20 pushups
  • 30 three-point lunges (each leg)
  • 40 total plank rows
  • 50 each cross body climbers
  • 40 double armed rope slams
  • 30 ball slams
  • 20 box jumps
  • 10 burpees

Then: 8x30:30 sprints on the rower and 5x30:30 sprints on jump rope.

On one hand I could look at today and say a majority of my plans didn't happen.  Or I could look at it as a good foundation for the first day of training, and work to get a little bit better each day.  I like the looks of that second choice best!
