The last week has been busy with new post-op activities! I’ve really been enjoying kickboxing with Alex at I Love Kickboxing in McKinney. We’ve still got a couple of classes left in our try out phase. I bought a groupon to try Title Boxing in McKinney, too! I can’t wait to see how their classes feel!
I also decided to try running again. My first run was GREAT! I had a couple of hours while a past bride was taking maternity pictures and wanted to see if I could finish up a full mile without stopping. So, I took off running the trail from the venue, to the chapel and down around to the lake. I finished the mile in a little over 11 minutes… that’s CRAZY. Last time I ran (2015) my mile time was around 17 minutes. I have a hard time running on a treadmill because I can’t ever seem to get my head in the right space. Everyone says trail running is more difficult but it feels FUN. Treadmill running just feels like punishment. My second run wasn’t quite as successful- 14 minutes for the mile mark.
I’ve decided to try for another 5K. Back in 2015 I’d been training to do a color run! I’ve had a goal to run a 5K for YEARS now. I was absolutely crushed when the run got cancelled… (thankfully, my sweet husband made our apartment into a fun glowey party and turned a really crappy night into great one.) and didn’t have a huge urge to seek out another 5K after that. Here we are again! October 21st is the day… I can’t wait!
The last wildly out of character thing I’ve done this week is sign up for Camp Gladiator! My former co-worker and I are planning on getting ourselves in over our heads twice a week for the month of September! My plan is to try just about everything to figure out what fitness stuff I enjoy the most. Victoria has decided to come along for the ride. Having a friend there for accountability is HUGE!
I can’t wait to try it all!
