It’s that time again – Friday Five. This week’s theme has to do with Spring Forward: what five things am I looking forward to this Spring. Of course I am relating this to my fitness so check out what I am anticipating starting this Spring season.
This link up is sponsored by Courtney from Eat Pray Run, DC, Cynthia from You Signed Up For What? and Mar from Mar on the Run! Their fitness and running blogs are awesome so make sure you head on over and check them out.
Spring Forward #1: I have the Iron Girl Half Marathon this April and while I haven’t been training like a champion like I should – I still plan to run it. There are no refunds and I have friends who will be participating with me but when I commit – I follow through. I also love the energy of the crowd.
Spring Forward #2: Losing this Winter weight I gained. Oh my goodness – I have been hibernating or something. It just seems unreal. I have NOT been as active due to a knee injury which you all have read about here, but this is getting ridiculous. I so want to get back to the slim trim me I was this time last year. This Spring I have to get my mind right. I just can’t stand walking around with this extra weight.
Spring Forward #3: How am I going to lose this extra fat? Sanders Optimum Fitness boot camp of course! He is tough but you get results. That is the only way I see myself getting rid of these extra inches! If you are in the Baltimore area I highly recommend it. Monte and his staff are GREAT!!!!!
Spring Forward #4: I can’t wait for Spring Break! Not really fitness related but it is. I have been so stressed at work, this break is just what I need to balance things back out. Every year I drive down with my children and hang out at my mom’s house for the week. It is a week of relaxation and fun. The kids have fun with grandma and Pop Pop and I get a break from the kids! LOL!!! Since my mom lives close to Charlotte, NC I visit college buddies. Oh yes, bring on Spring BREAK!
Spring Forward #5: Running again with my outdoor running crew. The treadmill is great but I have learned over the past year – running outside is even better. It challenges you in ways the treadmill just can’t. I can’t wait to hit the pavement – once all of this snow and ice melt! Can you believe the Winter we’ve had this year?
