HOT, Virtual Races and Birthday Cake

As I suspected, High Octane Training (HOT) kicked my butt hard. It was the first time I had done any strength or core training since the accident and I definitely felt it. We worked the upper body with free weights and body bars and the lower body with squats and lunges, peppered with high intensity bursts of cardio on the stepper and finished ‘er off with an ab workout on the mat. I’m happy to report that my shoulder held up great – no problems whatsoever. Of course, everything else is hurting this morning.


A couple bits of business to address… I updated yesterday’s post to include RunningLaur’s Hooray Spring 6-Miler this Friday. We even have a bib! If you’d like to participate, it’s not too late. Just leave a comment for RunningLaur and join in the fun.

And finally, I hope you’ll join me in supporting Marci and Christy in their endeavor to raise money and awareness for the Arthritis Society through Joints in Motion. You can do so by making a donation and participating in Reese’s Run on April 24th. Don’t wait too long, because early bird prizes will be awarded soon.


Tonight I’ll be joining my group at the Running Room for a hilly 10K then baking a cake for my Mom’s Birthday, which is tomorrow.

Happy Hump Day!
