|That's funny mommy, that sounds like a lame excuse!|
Week of June 4-10, 2012:
Current Weight: 166.6 (Down 1.0 lbs from previous week!)
Total Lost to date: 54.2 lbs
Chest: 39" (No change)
Hips: 44" (No change)
My workouts last week were pretty awesome. My only regret is that I waited so long to add in the Dam Steps!
Walked 4 miles. 2.2 miles were with the weighted vest (26lbs).
4 mile run.
1 hour arms and abs Strength Training.
1 hour on treadmill. 12% incline. Pack (37 lbs), Boots (5lbs).
For some reason, this treadmill workout feels a million times harder than the steps.
|Suck it up Mommy!|
Dam Steps. 116 steps, 11 platforms. 15x up and down. Mountain pack (37lbs), boots (5 lbs). Gnat cloud. Truly, truly icky. That's not how I want to get extra protein.
I went to the dam that night because I'd skipped my planned stairclimber/spin workout to play hookie at the zoo with Sarah and her adorable baby Charlotte. Avery enjoyed Charlotte and her book as much as the animals.
|This book is more interesting than your training log mom.|
Walked 2 miles. Walking to Fleet Feet a couple of times. Yes, I live walking distance from my local running store - this can be a major problem.
Walked 5.13 miles. With my friend Deb. We'd intended to go for a real hike about 1.5 hours from town, but my team's RAC shirts came in, and I was in charge of pick-up.
|Avery was thrilled to model one of them.|
Stroller run 4 miles. That evening, at the last minute, I decided to also do the Fleet Feet pub run. I won a nifty pair of New Balance socks! These socks have specified left and right socks. I wore them for my run yesterday, pretty spiffy!
|Claiming my winnings - Avery had just thrown the free sunglasses we got on the floor.|
A much deserved rest day!
7.1 mile run with the MiT gang. It was glorious to have just this one run for the day instead of the doubles of the past few weeks!
|Leading the group for the last half of the run!|
After the steps - I went to the Captain's meeting for Relay Around Columbus, that race is this coming weekend!
We hired a babysitter. For a workout. We sure know how to live it up! Mark and I went to the Dam for about 2.5 hours. Pack (40 lbs), Boots (5 lbs). One hour on the steps, 2 mile hike with a 15 minute break in the middle, finished the 2nd hour on the steps. Totals: 19x up and down the steps with a 2 mile hike in the middle. The hike was really good because it reminded us that a hike hurts the legs and feet differently than the steps. It was 90 degrees when we started.
We had to quit then so that we had time to get Chipotle burritos before the babysitter expected us home. Priorities!
We went in the evening because we spent the morning (well, mostly Mark, since I skipped out for a MOPS meeting), watching Avery and her new bestie Charlotte.

This current week is also off to a great start! Relay Around Columbus is this Saturday-Sunday. (I know, wife of the year, I'm finishing a 105 mile running relay for Mark's first father's day.)
|Luckily, they both love me....a lot.|
Luckily, I have awesome friends. We've worked out a way that every nighttime leg of the relay will be accompanied. As in, my friends NOT running the race are coming out anyway to help keep my all-female team company on the trails. (The course is all on trails, so the van will be driving from exchange point to exchange point, and NOT accompanying the runners. The only way to be accompanied is to have a companion runner).
Truly awesome! Wish us luck this weekend! Next week, I'll be more timely since it was weird posting about the workouts almost a week late.
Any ideas for Father's day gifts to make up for finishing a relay that day?
Anyone else racing this weekend?
