Overall, I had a good week. My 25k training is coming along and I've gotten in all of my required workouts this week. I ran 4 miles on an indoor track (112 left turns) on Saturday because the temps here were below zero with windchill and it was snowing like a mo-fo. I had my fastest 4 miles EVER. I did feel like a bit of a shmuck seeing how many people DID run outside though. Those people are effin NUTS, IMO, but they still went out there.
I downloaded a new iPhone app to use for strength training: Nike Training Club. If you don't have it, do download it. The app is free and has tons of exercises. I was so frigging sore yesterday from Monday's workout that I almost didn't do my training run on Tuesday. I still did it though - 3 miles outside in the slushy snow YO! Today, I want to cry every time I have to get up out of a chair or walk down the hall. My legs are TOAST.
Today I tried out the Wii Zumba game I won from Tirah. It was really fun, but I honestly didn't feel I got much of a workout because I was trying to figure out the moves, and let's face it, my hips just don't move like that. At least I only embarrassed my children, though. I'm sure once I get the moves down, the sweat will happen.
So, I hope everyone else had a great week. If you lost weight this week - congratulations and good job! If you didn't lose this week - it's ok, remember this is a marathon, not a sprint and every week you get a little stronger. The strength might be physical. It might be mental. It might just be a little more knowledge about what works and what doesn't work for YOU.
