My workouts have only included running in the past few weeks since I discontinued going to my personal trainer for a few weeks. I just could not swing the cost ($80 a week for 2, 30-minute sessions). I would like to be able to keep that up but honestly – as long as I have been a loyal client, I was not seeing a price break any time soon. BUT I am happy to say I start back with her October 29th for $8/session vs. $40/session and I can’t wait. I will also be working out with friends so I am pretty excited. Trust me – we here at Femme Fitale Fit Club believe in working out in groups (we ARE a club after all LOL). It is a fantastic way to be accountable and SHOW UP for the workout because you know people are waiting on you plus you can help each other. I have worked out in a group before and the trainer kept the exercises varied (muscle confusion) and intensity high to raise our cardio. I’m happy to be coming back with my Femme Fitale Fit Club sisters.
Here’s my music selection for the week. Been bangin’ this in my ears all week during my runs and it has helped me greatly!
Monday – 10/14
I went back to Boot Camp with Sanders Optimum Fitness where he ran us through a 1-mile warm up, ladders, and all types of toning exercises with hand weights. How could I forget – PUSH UP PYRAMIDS! Gotta love it – NOPE! It was all good – saw friends we haven’t seen in a while and got my body back in gear. I signed up for the next session which starts October 28, 2013. Can’t wait. Been using this week to get my mind right.
As you can see I burned up some calories in there in LESS than an hour. I stopped my clock too soon.
Tuesday – 10/15
Even though I was sore as all get out from Boot Camp the previous day I still got out there and ran with my Pavement Warriors. We tore it up.
Wednesday – 10/16
Stayed in the bed to relax these sore muscles. My arm feels like it si going to fall off.
Thursday – 10/17
SLEPT IN but the soreness is finally starting to feel better.
Friday – 10/18
We did our 3-mile trek and when we returned to the parking lot we ran into BGR! Baltimore. It was a big fellowship and hug fest in the parking lot because everyone was congratulating each other on their recent past accomplishments such as running a half, running a marathon or something else MAJOR! We took a bunch of photos!! It was fun – but had to cut it short to go home and get ready to make the donuts.
Saturday – 10/19
Me and my girl went up to the NCR trail to run nice and early at 7 am. The birds were singing, the trail was peaceful and the air was crisp. PERFECT day for running. We put in over 7.5 miles!!!!!
I’m getting very close to getting 60 miles this month and I am pretty excited about that because that will be an all-time NEW PR for me!!!!!!
Also, don’t forget – for the month of October we have a new challenge “Your New PR” Challenge using the Strava Cycling or Strava Run app and enter the raffle we have going on by downloading the Strava app and following ME (Diatta Harris) on the app!
