Due to an unforeseeable circumstance, my training failed.

My family experienced a tragic lost on March 13, 2012. My Uncle Joe lost his fourteen year battle with cancer. Not going to lie, it sucks and is totally unfair. Yeah I probably sound stupid but hey I have a right to be mad. Good things happen to bad people. However, it made realize how lucky I am for my health and my family.

Love you Uncle Joe!!!

As for my 5k, I didn't do as well I wanted, but I have to go into it remembering that I won't be as good as last season. I did it in 31 minutes.

But I had fun and ran into Jen and her mom while I finished :)

How to train for a 5K in one week

I lost a week of training after being sick. When I went to the gym this week, I took it very easy since sometimes I have cough attacks. I have an inhaler but I don't like having to depend on using it.

I have a 5k on Saturday that I did last year. I know the course and I'm not too worried about it. It's flat but I still wanna do well.

So here is my training schedule.
Monday: Run two miles
Tuesday: Run one mile
Wednesday: Run two miles
Thursday: Run three miles
Friday: Bike

I'll be doing weights and abs, but taking it easy on the legs.

Here is to a week of training!

Its a beautiful day, don't let it get away

Today it finally started feeling like spring! With that being said, most of the day was spent outside enjoying the fun weather. My kids sure did love it! We stayed out for most of the morning and then after nap we ate snack outside.

During my lunch break I met up with Jennifer to eat and walk her dog Bagel. As usual, it was a good time. However, we had to rush so I could get back to work (I ended up being late...opps!)

Bad iPhone pictures, but still worth posting!

Bronchitis Workout

As a teacher, I get sick all the time. I've probably made enough posts about it to make me as well whoever reads this want to pull their hair out. But this time it was bad enough I went to the doctors. I thought I had an ear infection but there was too much fluid to tell, but it lead to bronchitis. I'm on all these fun cold meds which make me loopy and out of it.

But today I thought I might as well get my ass up and do something. Like any normal sick person, I went to the gym. I haven't gone all week so why not try this week. I just did the bike and lifted. I brought a book and uploaded a bunch of new music to pump me up. No abs today though, since most of the workouts involve me being on my back, and I would have probably coughed up a lung.

Tomorrow is the last day of my antibiotic and hopefully I'll be getting some more sleep!

Work Out Playlist Part 2

Over the summer I posted my current workout jams. Well here is part two for you all!

Turn Me On- David Guetta feat. Nicki Minaj. This song has a good beat that I can jam as well as pace myself to. It's also a catchy song!

Rack City Chick- Tyga. This song reminds me of Miami and driving through South Beach on New Years. Makes for good lifting and a good beat to pace myself.

Glad You Came- Glee Cast. Once I saw this song performed on Glee I was in awe! I had to have so I went onto iTunes and downloaded it. Probably one of my favorite covers they have done this season.

Domino- Jessie J. I actually really like singing to this song but it is a good running song. Gets me pumped up everytime!

Lights- Ellie Goulding Bassnectar Remix. This one has been on my iTunes wish list for a minute and I Finally got around to downloading it.

Monster- Kanye West feat. Nicki Minaj, Jay-Z, Rick Ross, and Bon Iver. This song is kind of long but the beat keeps me going. It gets me ready to run every time.
