3 weeks ago I started running on Saturdays with a running club formed by the local running store. It is awesome because I am running with a different group of people and I feel like I fit in a little better than with my other running club. I have been using their runs as one of my shorter weekday runs and then run in Sundays longer. So far so good!
Since I started running with the running club, I also started swimming long course at the local outdoor pool. I am actually disappointed that I can't swim tomorrow ;( it's not that I can't make it, there just isn't a swim tomorrow :( :(
On Monday, the stars lined up and I was able to start a 6 week boot camp. Let me just tell you how awesomely hard it is and how I want to die almost every session, yet I keep coming back for more. Today was no doubt the hardest session (although I am partly convinced that it was because it was at 4am). Anyway, I am excited to see how my body will transform in the next 6 weeks! A good friend of mine is a nutritionist so I have her just keeping an eye on my eating to make sure I am eating enough for the activities I am doing, but also enough to lose weight. What differences there are between programs out there (on amount of calories one should consume) and the amount you SHOULD consume so that you don't put your body into starvation mode. Hopefully with these 2 things under a strict an firm plan, great things will happen!!
But, for now, I am going to bed. Yes, it isn't even 839, but getting up at 4 am has me completely exhausted. Besides, I need to rest for TeamVark run tomorrow!
Enjoy your weekend!
