On top of the boot camp one day a week, I am considering either taking a second boot camp class or Zumba at Energize Zone or taking a Barre Class at The Movement Center in Pewaukee. On top of these, I will continue my running as I have signed up for my 4th run of 2013 already.
Two weekends ago, I participated in my 3rd virtual run, but the first of 2013. It was called the #chillycheeks run and boy was it chilly. I ran it in 17 degree weather but the roads were in decent shape. I bundled up and enjoyed myself running 3.1 in 40:19. My goal was 40 minutes, so just barely over but still proud.
|17 degrees out - yep my cheeks were chilly :) #chillycheeks|
|Road conditions were fair for #chillycheeks|
Besides the gear, I obviously have to get my butt into the training. I have never run 4.3 miles! I probably won't be able to run it all in March either, but I have to keep up on my training and put my heart into it.
This past Saturday, I took to the snow covered streets in my hometown and ran, jogged, walked and slipped through 3.1 miles. But I had a PR for 2013 - 39:24 and I felt amazing after!!!
|Skinny paths of pavement to jog on - mainly ran on slushy snow.|
|Completed the run and in good spirits!|
The other runs I have signed up for include The Color Run in August and Storm the Bastille in July. I'm also considering the Zombie Run at Waukesha Expo in May for a fun obstacle course (zombies chasing you, how awesome right?) and The Glo Run in September. I also have the American Cancer Society's Sole Burner in May with my cousin as that was my kick-off run that started all of this. I think I will have no problem hitting my quota of 5 5ks and a 10k this year, but I have to find a 10k still.
If you have any running suggestions, tips or races in the Milwaukee/Chicago area that I should check out, please let me know about them.
