All in all, it felt like a good, busy workout week. I set out for a run on Monday after work, but my stomach had other ideas and it just ended up being a walk. The class on Wednesday was AWESOME. Totally hard, but much more doable than the last (and only other) time I took that class. Kevin estimates we probably ran around 4+ miles through the trail. I was also gear testing some stuff for the Mudder to make sure they would work. I bought some Thorlo Experia socks so I wore those, plus I wore my Camelbak again to see how it would do including things other than just running (which is all I did the first time I wore it). Throughout the class, we’d pause to keep the group together and we’d do burpees, push-ups and squats as a break and it did pretty well. There was some movement for burpees with the jumping, but it stayed put for pretty much everything else.
Julie and Dan will be coming down this weekend to help us put up our pool. Saturday I’ll probably power wash the house/deck, etc and then they’ll be down for Sunday and Monday when the weather should be better. Rain is forecast for tomorrow, but with how things have gone lately, we’ll have to see how things unfold.
Being that this weekend is Memorial Day weekend, please take a moment out of your day to think about the reasons we’re free to have our BBQs and pool parties. Don’t just remember the men and women who have died, but also think about those that are still out there serving and especially about those who have come “home”, but may never feel like it again. If you have a moment, please take a look at these websites.
My song choice this week may be upsetting for some to watch or listen to (Tara), so please bear that in mind before you press play.
