|Yay, first drink of my staycation! (on my uncles' awesome deck)|
At least we had great weather over the weekend. And I wasn't completely lazy and gluttonous. My sister and I went out Friday morning to Crissy Field for a run/walk.
|Look how fast she is!|
|We may or may not have taken 10 pics to get this one shot where we are both looking in the right direction with the bridge in the background.|
They had personal trainers hanging out to take people through the workout For Free! There are 7 stations and you do each for a minute (45 sec of activity, 15 sec to get to the next station). The stations included: plank position, walking lunges, modified push-ups, modified pull-ups, box jumps/squats, agility (think hop-scotch), and back extensions. Each station had a bunch of different ways you can modify it to fit your fitness level. It would definitely be a good workout to go through the circuit 3 or 4 times or to do each activity for longer. The plan is to replace all the wooden fitness areas in parks with these things. I hope this catches on! Here's the website if you're interested in more information.
This week marks the official start of Tahoe 100 training! Sunday I'm meeting up with Kelsey and the Uncles for a 25-30 mile ride in Sausalito, ending at a fabulous brunch place (yet to be determined). I'm so excited that I was able to convince them to do this ride with me! The training is going to be so much more fun with them than it would be on my own! I've got about 8 week to prepare for the 100 mile ride so I need to get my ass in that saddle! Luckily, it's Tuesday so I can do my favorite workout tomorrow - watch Biggest Loser on nbc.com while riding my bike on the trainer. I love that show! It's really motivating and during the commercials I sprint to mix up the ride a bit.
Is it a good sign or terribly depressing that every week I really look forward to my BL time on the bike??
9:15pm update: I forgot to bring home my macbook power cord from lab!! How am I going to be able to watch BL with only 11% battery left?!?! <sigh>
