Today I woke up pretty sore from an intense chest day yesterday. I was planning on just doing a few easy treadmill miles and maybe a couple glute exercises. But, then I remembered that another mom from my girl's school invited me to join her in the Powerflex class at 9am. Well, who am I to say no to a good workout? So, I ran two miles on the treadmill, went to class, then ran another two miles. Class was an ass kicker for sure. Low weight, high rep, high intensity for an entire hour. We did (I use the term we loosely, I skipped more than a push up or two) 126 push ups, tricep dips, lunges, etc etc. It was a fun change, but I prefer to lift heavy and run far!
And, since this is transformation Tuesday and I'm feeling especially proud of the progress I've made in the past few months, here is a jewel of a transformation picture for you. The left picture was after an entire year of running. I'd done my first race, a half marathon and had already signed up for my first marathon in the Fall. On the right, fast forward nearly two years, two marathons, two 50k's and countless other races later. Let's also not forget all the diet changes and weight lifting! Go me! Look, I have a two pack!
