Quick update – busy week!

It’s wedding week! And on top of a busy week already, things are just plain nuts around here. I was at work for nearly 12 hours on Tuesday, DH had a meeting Wednesday, and is helping another friend set up for another wedding at his home on Thursday. Friday, we have our doctor’s appointment, the rehearsal at 10:00, lunch at 12:30, and somehow I have to squeeze in 4 hours of working from home, finish cleaning my house since my in laws are staying with us, and help out with wedding prep!  And that’s all before the big day (and it ain’t even mine!) Phew!

It’s making for a quick week, though – which I like. I went to treadmill boot camp on Wednesday again, and it was much harder this time, but I also didn’t take it as easy as I did last week. We did a 5 minute tempo run warm up, six sprint intervals (where we had to progressively increase the speed), followed by  four hill intervals @ 2 minutes each. We then finished with three 30-second sprints (going ALL OUT – I ran a 9:40 sprint which is VERY fast for my stubby legs!), and a cool down with stretching. I was really pouring sweat at the end, but it was a great workout. I came home and cleaned for three hours….it was 90 degrees out today, and we don’t have an air conditioner. Let’s just say I was taking a lot of breaks. :)

Last week I also went to pilates and loved, loved, loved it. I was thrilled to find out my pilates instructor is 15 weeks pregnant! So she is just a bit further than me, and it’s so great that she knows all of the modifications I will have to do once my belly gets big. So I am going back today… I was so sore last week after finishing. I forgot how tough pilates is, but it feels great to be doing something and being active.

Weight is still around 137. And, my face is back to looking like I’m in middle school. Ahh, hormones. You suck!!

Hope everyone is doing well…I hope to have some photos from the wedding on Monday!

How great that you found a pilates instructor for this!

Amazing that your pilates instructor is pregnant too! That's a relief since that person can definitely relate and stay within your comfort zone!

Have a wonderful week. I love weddings!

You are busy! I hope you have some fun in there!
Can I ask you some PX90 questions? How did you adjust it to fit training for 10K/half marys in there?
