Training: 6 Miles, 52 Min.
I had a great weekend, it was completely laid back. Friday morning I did two classes at the gym, the first was a body active group which KILLED me, it was my first time taking the class and it took every last bit of energy I had to get through it. It was a class based entirely around weight training and full body work, I was shaking like a leaf!
I thought about skipping the group ride class the was right after it but I had already set up my bike and put my towel and water bottle on the bike to save it, so why not!
I could barely hold myself up on the bike for that 60 minutes. After I left I couldn't raise my arms above my chest, I haven't pushed myself that hard in quite some time.
Later that evening Hughie and I had supper at our favorite Indian restaurant and made a little trip to our local running room. Hughie is a cyclist, and that's that. I've teased him off and on about coming for a run with me sometime but he had no interest, at all.
Until a week ago, we were talking about my race coming up in just over four weeks and how I'm feeling a little behind in my training and all of a sudden he said he would train with me!
This is a big deal ladies and gents, a BIG deal.
He's a keeper :)
He had a foot mapping done and bought his very first pair of running shoes!
I can't wait to run with him, it'll be a whole new running experience.
While at the Running Room I picked up a new hydration pack, a Camelbak. It's very small, only holding 1.5 liters of water. It'll be great for those longer runs and hopefully it doesn't chafe, my only worry.
I also bought this pineapple Gu, which didn't go down so easy,
Also, over the weekend I baked some cupcakes for the 'Sparks' of The Girl Guides of Canada's for their 100th anniversary. They were a hit and were apparently gone in minutes :)
Today is suppose to be a rest day so we'll see how it goes, maybe another installment of 'The Joy of Cooking June'?
