I went a little crazy on Tuesday and did back-to-back treadmill RUN + INSANITY class + TRX Bootcamp. (Read more about it here) A couple hours later, I returned to the gym to teach SPINNING class. Umm, yeah... Evidently, that was a bit much for this gal. My booty has been aching like there's knives twisting in my glutes with every step. The only relief is sleeping with my ars on a heating pad. I love working out everyday. It just makes me happy to sweat out the day's stresses. So when I have to rest because I overpushed... well, I'm just crabby... and disappointed. Disappointed with myself because I know better. Today, I did light yoga and it felt good to stretch things out. Tomorrow, I hope to be back running.
Every August, my city (Peoria, IL) hosts the St. Jude Runs, raising millions of dollars for St. Jude Children's Hospital. Over the years, I've donated a lot to my runner friends who were involved, but this year I've decided to run as part of the Bartonville-to-Peoria team. With that being said, St. Jude will be the official charity beneficiary of this year's Jelly Bean Virtual Race (back for its 4th year during Easter week). I select my charities carefully each year and am excited to support St. Jude. I also hope to run the St. Jude Marathon (Dec) for Tennessee in my #RaceAll50 quest.
The Snowball Shuffle virtual race is going in full effect across the country! I love seeing all your pictures. Anyone can still join the fun (details here). You have until Sunday, 2/2 to finish the 8K distance. All finishers are entered into a prize drawing to win a heart rate watch! Winner will be announced on Tuesday, 2/4.
