A Big Dose of Fun Friday – just the thing to cure the February Funk!!!

I don’t know what I was thinking when I picked my 43 today!!  I dug out my Tae-Bo bands:Tae-Bo Bands

Sometimes I forget about these but they are really cool.  You can see the loops that slip over your feet and they have 1 pound weights that you can take out if you only want to use the resistance from the band itself.

For my 43 I left the weights in!  I did a triceps extension in a static lunge (why I thought I should hold a lunge while I did 43 of these I don’t know – cause you know I also had to do 16 wall-sits today at 1 minute each!!!

arm up - check!
arm up – check!
bend arm - elbow still!
bend arm – elbow still!

I know this seems like an easy 43 but the resistance tubing is no joke!!!  And, 43 reps (or even 10) is something you will definitely feel!

You know I can’t be unbalanced, so I switched sides and did another set of 43.

switch sides!
switch sides!

For the rest of my work-out today, I decided to run.  This week I have done a long run and a short easy run so today I decided to do a hard run.  I kept the treadmill at 1.5% incline and did 6 miles in 30:50 + 2 cool down miles.

It felt good to get in a hard-paced run but I am really trying to keep my focus on just putting in the miles.  I think that between now and mid-October (50 mile race) I will spend more time working on nice easy runs and even some long runs that have a run-walk pattern to get my body used to that.  I’m also focusing on making my legs as strong as possible (wall-sits, static lunges…..)

Hunter and I met a friend of his, Zach, and his mom, Renee (who is a friend of mine) at one of my all time favorite places – Screen shot 2013-01-18 at 7.32.41 AM

We ended up hanging out for 3.5 hours – catching up on each other’s lives while the boys entertained each other!!  At one point we moved into the cafe and ate lunch (they have great sandwiches).  Fun times for sure!


Yesterday evening, Chris and I went out with friends.  We met up with 7 other couples for dinner at a Mexican food place which means – Margaritas!!!Screen shot 2013-02-16 at 10.17.27 AMThen we all headed to the theater to watch Identity Thief.   I haven’t laughed that much at a movie in a long, long time!!!

After the movie we talked about going somewhere for a drink but figured every place would be too loud for conversation so we just invited everyone over to our house for awhile!!  So much fun to just hang out and talk!!  (no pictures – just fun)

It was a great day and the perfect cure forScreen shot 2013-02-16 at 10.26.04 AM
