I can still walk!

So I got back to moving my body just a little bit yesterday, felt SO GOOD!! I took it easy, only walking (though I was dying to run). I did a little over 3.5 miles in 50 minutes (~ 14min/mile, ha ha).  They finally connected the 2 trails I've been "out and back"-ing, so I went down one and came back on the other. SO EXCITED TO BE WORKING OUT!!!!!!!


I did a TON of stretching after, plus loads of situps, some pushups and a couple 1 min. planks. More stretching. My muscles felt pretty decent all day, even after that, yay! It was bothering me as I went to bed, so I took a couple Motrin, but this morning it feels great! I mean, I know it's there, but I am able to walk normally.  I am going to walk again today, then take spin tomorrow. By Thursday I am planning on doing some walk-run intervals and I CANNOT WAIT!

I typically take an Iron Bodies class on Tues/Thurs., but I am a little afraid to do that quite yet- it's full body stuff, awesome class, but a strain on my back and hamstring when I am 100%, so I am going to wait until next Tuesday. I will do some upper body stuff in the weight room this week.  

Speaking of iron bodies- this is my AMAZING instructor (also teaches my spin class) and good friend Jodie, TOTALLY rocking it at the Arnold Classic this past weekend. LOVE HER!!!

Happy Tuesday Y'all!!

Kick ASS.

My husband and I actually threw two prom themed parties. We stocked up on wine coolers, and I had friends do my hair and make up, and we had cheesy music playing. Everyone had so much FUN.

Woo-hoo! You are back to working out!! Did you get your intervals in on Thursday?!!!

Trails outside would totally be challenging! I'm sure my TM experience is all mental! Cheers to recovery!!
