Half Marathon Training 12/17/13

On today's schedule BodyPump and a 2 mile run.

HA! I love that little girl! And sadly that's probably how I look...especially when a dog comes out of no where and scares the crap out of me!

Today was my first cross training and run on the same day! And HOLY CRAP! I'm going to be feeling this shit tomorrow!! Thankfully it was *only* 2 miles today but the .4 extra was my cool down. Not a bad time considering I went to class first then ran. I wanted my 2 miles to stay under 30 minutes and it was.
As usual it was ridiculously cold. I've noticed that my nose runs when I'm out there? Do y'all have anything like that happening? Or when I'm breathing the cold air, it gets in my lungs and feels all prickly. It doesn't hurt...just annoying. Not sure if these come with the territory of running. But thankfully later in the week it'll be back to 60-70 degrees. LOL! Which I don't mind one bit! That's all I have to say about my run.

As mentioned before, the training schedule I'm following has me doing cross training of some sort. Hal Higdon suggest it could be a walk or a gym class. I just figured I would combine the running with Pump, Flow, and Combat.
And Pump was on the schedule for today. And I haven't done Pump in MONTHS...seriously since August and boy could I feel it!

Let me go on the record and say I hate squats! I hate squats with weights! Again I hate squats with every fiber of my being. Of course, this particular class had a slew of squats. *grumble...grumble...grumble!* I love my classes but it's a nice reminder of how uncoordinated I really am. It's so sad.

Melanie was the instructor this morning and she is AMAZING! She actually came up and introduced herself to me. And I thought that was pretty cool. She gave me some pointers. Of course, I told her about my half training, and she said Pump is a good class to go hand and hand with the running. I made it through the class and she came up to me afterwards to see how I did and if I had any questions. And told me I did a good job. HOLLA!
Naturally I bragged on myself, and showed her a before and during/after. Of course...she was blown away. ;) And I told her I would like to lose about another 5-10 pounds and she's like lets do this. I'll be more than happy to help. And if there is anything you need from me, please let me know.
I was so stoked! I'm finally going to stop dicking around and to the covented 200 plus poundage gone with Melanie's help! She's sooooo sweet! I really REALLY like her. She and Gina have been my favorite instructors!

So another day in the books! Rest day tomorrow. Thank GOODNESS! LOL!
