And Ya Don’t Stop…

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.

Burpee time! I love burpees ❤️   

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

City views.

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!

  1. I’ve never ‘trained’ for any of the trail races I’ve done. I’m excited to see you doing so. You’re going to love it. It is so different from road racing. I actually enjoy it so much more. There are times you won’t even be running, the hills will require walking. You might learn the hard way, but you’ll get it after your first race. I haven’t dong BSB yet, so I’m not sure how tough the course is. That’s right before J and I leave for Colorado, so I’m still tentative on registering…but I really want to celebrate your bday with you! xoxo, ganeeban

    • I think I’m really going to love trails. I can’t wait! If you can’t make it to BSB there will always be another race 🙂
