7:30?

So this weekend I went up to Mt. Sac for the CIF Southern Section Cross Country Finals. It was a great race and so fun to be apart of the enviroment again. The girl I coached previously did great as well. She finished 11th overall and 3rd individually, so that means she is also qualified to race at state in Fresno next weekend! She was excited and it was great to see her hard work pay off.

Secondly, I guess in the spirit of racing and all those amazing philly finishers, I was feeling a little speedy yesterday and my workout consisted of 5.25 miles at a 7:30 pace. Yea, it was pretty fast for me, and when I was on my way back home I was running at 6:58 pace for about 10 minutes. I don't know what got into me, but it was good to feel like I could run fast again. Also, it's finally getting colder here, which is nice. I mean cold being 65. :) I wore my leggings and my great jacket I purchased a while back from Target. It's still great and I love their C9 stuff.

Tonight is another Amp'd Abs class and then another 20-20-20 workout. I'm going to record the class again. I did it twice this weekend and my abs are very sore but I can defanitly feel it working and I have found that I really like taking the classes at the gym. They help me break up the monotomy that is working out sometimes, and the encouraging by the instructor is also very helpful to me. If you are a member of a gym, try one out, or you can even do a video! I am the winner of the Dancing with the Stars video giveaway, so I'll soon have a report on that, and how it worked or didn't. :) Hope everyone had a great weekend, and if I ever get my email back up, I'll get some new deals coming your way.

How wonderful that the girl you coached did so well. She must have learned a lot from you.

Great job on the speedy run!! The target jacket sounds nice. I like going to gym classes too to break things up. I love being sore the next day after that too :) All depends on the instructor!

That is great that you got to see the girl you coached! And you get to coach a girl!! SO lucky - I am thinking about getting into coaching after I graduate!!

I am sorry Mr. R made fun of you! He is not very nice! Alphabet dates are cool! The way I got B-rabbit to get into it is that I promised to go Golfing for the G date!! lol plus he loves me paying for dinner! hehe

Ampd Abs sounds awesome!

I am now purchasing that Nike hat after your reviews. It will be perfect here in Illinois! It gets pretty chilly!!

Candice said...

I definitely want to try a class at the gym I just joined. It's encouraging to hear that you like yours so much.

The day I bought the Jillian Michael's DVD, I had actually set out to buy the Dancing w/the Stars one. I'm glad I got Jillian, but I think I might ask for DWTS for Christmas. I can't wait to hear what you think!
