Back in the saddle again!

Cheesy title, I know.  Couldn’t help it.

Miscellaneous Field Notes:

Angie S from Women’s Diet and Fitness posted a tweet last week looking for women to try out her Fat Blasting Boot Camp program in exchange for a review on their blog.   Eager beaver here was all up on that!

New Workout Plan: Fat Blasting Boot Camp.
After a rocky start (I did the wrong workouts on day 1), I’ve had a really great time bouncing from one activity to the next.  The program is based on a fitness circuit that includes strength training, cardio and ab work.  Each circuit can be completed in about ten minutes and the total time invested is approximately 30 minutes.  I keep thinking I’m going to come crawling back into the house total toasted, but so far, it’s not that bad.  I’m having fun with it and it’s a great way to change things up.  Looking forward to the progression and intensity levels for the duration of the plan.

Running:

Happy to report that I ran three times in the last week and felt pretty good.  We got a nice 3.5 mile trail run with lots of hills this morning and I also did another fast 3.5 miles with another friend on Tuesday.  Both running buddies are very fast, so I was glad I didn’t keel over gasping for air!

Cycling:

Two great rides this week with some fast friends! Both rides were 25 miles, hilly, challenging and a total blast. Cycling is tons of fun especially when you can find good women to ride with who are more experienced than you who can push you.

Reading:

Finished My Sister’s Keeper by Jodi Picult.  This is the second book of hers that (after finishing), I wanted to throw the book across the room at the end.  I don’t generally have that kind of reaction to fiction.  She gets you all wrapped up in the multiple plot lines only to throw you for a huge loop at the end.  Next up, Barbara Kingsolver’s Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A year in the life of food.  I have loved all of her books and have been wanting to read this one for quiet some time.   Also, I’m really excited to read Running Well and the Lore of Running.  Hopefully will get some good information to share with you here.

Off to the snow:

Planning on doing some snow shoeing in the morning.  Can’t wait!

Have a great weekend!

It is best that you have the perfect triathlon training schedule to be more effective.

    Definitely want to hear about the two running books! I keep thinking I’ll try snowshoeing, but we’ve only had enough snow like 2 days this year

    The Lore of Running is hard core… tons of interesting info in that one! Glad you had some good workouts recently! I always enjoy the feeling of accomplishment after successful runs. Maybe someday I will buy a bike, I’m starting to be intrigued by the idea of a duathlon.
