Jen: “Kathryn, I’m thinking I want to run a 5k, but I need some help. I don’t really LIKE running, nor do I naturally excel at it.”
Kathryn: “I don’t see a problem. You will train, and you will like it”
I just LOVE Kathryn’s no bullcrap approach with me when it comes to training..heck, when it comes to life 🙂 So, since this whole blog is about ACCOUNTABILITY for me (but has turned into a passion, love and outlet), I want to share with you my goal.
I, Jennifer Nadeau, want to run the 5k at Cider Hill Farms this fall, October 24th. This will be my first 5k, but not my last, and I WILL finish 🙂
Last night I had my second Thursday of working out on the beach with ma ladies 🙂 I LOVE IT!! What a therapeutic way to wrap up the week, get some girl talk in and move our bodies! We did a pretty heavy work load last night; descending ladders of [set 1] double unders and lunges and [set 2] of box jumps and pushups. Descending ladder being 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 of each. After the workouts we sat right there on the grass and had a good heart to heart for an hour 🙂 Perfect 🙂
For the second week in a row I attended the 6am Friday class at North Shore Crossfit! 😀 What an amazing way to start the day, seriously. I leave there at 7am, feeling like I’ve already accomplished something. This morning I had run a mile and a half and had done 48 pullups before 7! (And Danny told me I was looking slender these days…how could anyone NOT love that?! :))
As Many Rounds in 20 minutes
– 400M Run
– Max Pull-ups
Score is total Pull-ups
After hearing all the heavy hitter scores this morning (90-105) I didn’t feel AS good about my 48 (plus 6 rounds of running = 1.5 miles)…but I ripped my hands again, and decided to consistently do about 10 a round. I only did 8 the last round because I had already ripped on the previous round. C’est la vie! I guess its time to start shaving the calluses and taking lessons on wrapping :-p
After going to tomorrows 9am class at northshore, I will have done 5 intense workouts this week. First time ever! WOOOT! Bring it on world, BRING. IT. ON.
Happy Friday 😀 I hope you have a rockin’ weekend 🙂 Do something playful 🙂
