5k Madness & This weeks workout plan

Now that I have spent the morning catching up on work I can share some fun news with all of you!

I was going through emails this morning and came across a LivingSocial deal. Normally I would delete it (there are too many *deal* emails) but I saw MUD RUN 5K and knew I had to open it.

Turns out it is on Long Island, only 40 minutes from my hometown and it is c-h-e-a-p.
$35 to be exact.

So what did I do?
 I asked the girls if they were interested.
I already knew they would say yes, so I bought my entry before asking...always making smart decisions.

In just two weeks we will be climbing rope walls, jumping through tires and running through the mud together. Well, they will be running and I'll cling to a leg. Hopefully it's a leg of someone I know, OR I will just stay in the rope climb, and pretend I am part of the course...either way, it will be fun.

Speaking of fun 5ks
 The Color Run is *this* Saturday!
 Clearly I am on a roll signing up for runs that get me messy.
I didn't think about the bugs that may be involved in the mud run and now I am regretting this decision.

The Dirty Sock 10k was yesterday, and I ended up skipping it due to my knee.
It is feeling better then last week but still not 100%. I've decided to take it extra easy this week so I can enjoy the color run with the girls on Saturday.

Here is this weeks workout schedule:

As you can see I am still trying to make the 5 am bootcamp class... it has been 6 weeks of trying and failing.
Who thinks I can make it this Wednesday?

Yea, I don't think so either...but a girl can dream.

Do you have any fun runs coming up?
What has been your favorite race?


  1. Dont say you wont make the 5am bootcamp. You are setting yourself up for failure. Believe that you will! I think you will! Make sure you go to bed early the night before :-)

  2. Our color run is in TWO AND A HALF MONTHS. I'm very impatient! Haha. And I want to go now!

    Other than that, I've started training for a half with a group. While it's not a race, it's pretty awesome to run with a large group of people!!

  3. 5am is tough but well worth. I started doing a 5:30 am boot camp but biking there so I leave at 5am. It was tough convincing myself at first but now it is a habit and my day feels so much better afterwards.

    Have fun at the Color Run (I did one last month, what a blast)!

  4. I can't wait to be able to do fun runs like these. I started the C25K plan but I had to stop due to knee/ankle/foot pain and shin splints. I have to figure out how to fix it all. Good luck in the color run!

  5. Getting motivation and energy for regular trainings is one of the most important things when you start working out. Otherwise you won't achieve your goals. When I started going to the gym my friend advised me to try nutritional supplements. At that time I thought I did not need them, but I changed my mind after I've tried. It was little more than a month I've been taking Military Grade nutritional supplements, when I realized I did not feel fatigue in the end of the day. And even more: after workouts I still had energy to spare. As time went by, my shape was improving more and more. I was loosing fat and gaining muscles. Now I feel really fit!
