Pain in the Ass & January Recap

Last nights workout:

Modified treadmill tabata sprints a la Blonde Ponytail
1.75 miles in 16:30 (9:26 avg!!!)
Easy 5 miles on the bike in 21 minutes.
2×20 seconds handstands – oh yes, incorporating some gymnastics

I was going to take it super easy on Betty tonight seeing as my legs and ass were super sore. Once I got going, I didn’t want to go slow anymore! I decided to follow (sort of) a workout that blonde ponytail posted but hers is way more hardcore than mine. It was still a fantastic workout though!

3 min walk/jog
20s sprint at 7.2 10s recover x8
20s sprint at 7.4 10s recover x6
20s sprint at 7.7 10s recover x4
4:30 minute cool down

Total: 1.75 miles in 16:30!

Holy glutes! My ass is sore. A good sore. The kind of sore that makes you think the cellulite is disappearing being tamed.

**************

Well, kids. January has come and gone! WTF?! Where the heck did it go?! While January started out slow on the workout front for me, I have definitely picked it back up. Not gonna lie, I’m kinda LOVING it.

January stats:

Miles ran: 10.46
Low mileage, yes. But you do not see any junk mileage here! All very strategic runs.

Miles biked: 71.7
Definitely a personal monthly high for biking. I am feeling a difference in my legs too!

Total miles: 82.16 – Not too shabby for starting out the month in a funk!

Books read: 9 and started #10

Races completed: 0 – That will change next month!

Races signed up for: 1 – Vday dash 5k

Pounds lost: No idea. I have not weighed myself in a long time and I don’t intend to! It is all about how you feel, people!!

Last, but not least, I stumbled upon this picture on Pinterest. Kinda makes you think about weight differently!

  1. My fave part of January was my aerial class and giving blood. The class was tons of fun, and while I didn’t exactly *like* giving blood, I’m really glad I did it.

  2. Holly

    I also got my butt back into running and working out this month. That is probably the best thing that happened this month because I imagine I’m a much nicer person to be around when I have an outlet. (And I feel a lot better about myself too.)

  3. Way to go speed demon! You are on your way, way to dominate January! I better do a January recap tomorrow…. And I need to make my cellulite disappear too!
