Spring In 2 Action Week 6: Buff Brazen Bunnies

First off, I have to apologize if my blog looks a bit wonky.  For some reason, Photobucket is screwing up all my buttons and backgrounds, but they say it should be back to normal in the next day or so.  Still, me no likey.


I cannot believe we are at Week 6 on Shrinking Jeans' latest challenge yah, I know, I say that every week - so sue me.  My fellow bunny, Kirsten, and I keep busting out those push-ups for the 100 Push-Up challenge and we are nearly to the end!  Can I get a Woot-Woot? 

Both of us are also running like the crazy women we are.  Kirsten has a 1/2 marathon coming up and my 25k is 1 month from tomorrow.  I have a 13 mile training run coming up on Saturday that I'll probably tack on another 1/10 to so I can say I ran another 1/2 mary cuz we've already established my craziness.

But, it is check-in day, so here we go...

  1. Run 2-3 days per week as outlined in my 25k training plan. Amazingly, Check!  That plague I talked about last week nailed me too.  I spent most of spring break week sick with a nasty sinus infection and scrapped my long run.  I was feeling better on Thursday, though, so my girl and I went to the track and she coached me to a 7:34 mile in my 4x400!!!!  It was also my anniversary this weekend and we went out of town, so I didn't run again until Sunday, when crazy-@$$ Michigan decided to jump from 40 to 83*.  My planned 8 miles became one of the worst 6 mile runs I've ever had.  Hubs tried running with me and he quit at 1 mile!  I needed some redemption and got that last night with one of the best (almost) 6 milers ever.  5.89 miles in 59 minutes.  The weather was glorious and I ran with an old friend.  (A running hint-if you want to improve your speed, run with someone a bit faster than yourself.  Our first mile was around a 9:20 pace!)
  2. 100 Push-ups Challenge 3x per week. I finished week 6 with a total of 245 push-ups!  I seriously thought my arms were going to fall off!  The next workout says "try and do 100 push-ups", so I'll be giving that a shot tomorrow.
  3. Add 2 (or 3) Nike Training Club app strength workouts per week. Yah, I got nothing.
  4. Really work on getting enough water. This continues to go well. 
All-in-all, not a bad week. I even got on the scale this morning and saw my lowest weight ever.  I don't think I've been this small since probably middle school!  That little number on the scale was a nice surprise this morning :)  Now it's your turn to hook up with Shrinkingjeans and let us all know how your week went!


  1. Wow!! What a great week you had!! Congrats on that tiny little number!

    also? way to show those pushups who's boss!!

  3. WTG, partner! You're losing weight while training for a long-distance event! I'm sure you're the envy of many.

  4. Woohoo! I am so impressed with how both of you did on the push ups! And it sound like you did awesome with your running, too. You should be super proud!


Comments are like big, squishy hugs to me - and I love hugs!

Happy New Year 2020
