Weekday Morning Workouts

So, on Mondays/Wednesdays/Fridays I meet up with a group for a morning "workout" (should really be called a morning "a$$ kicking"!!). It's like a bootcamp/football camp/track meet/spinning class all rolled into one! I started this back in the middle of March and I still love it! For the most part we meet at the local High School track and do everything (laps, sprints, stadium steps, jumps, hops, side shuffles up and down the field, a drill we call "run stop drop and roll" - start at the goal line go down to your stomach and roll over, then jump up sprint to the 10 yard line and repeat, keep doing this all the way down to the 50, turn around and come back)we do all of this for about 45 minutes then finish up with 15 minutes of abs, planks and push ups. KILLER!
Thankfully after all of my running this weekend we were inside at the gym using the Spin bikes. It was a great workout even though my legs were pretty tired!

Sounds like a great workout. The year I got up and went to 6:30 am track workouts (we didn't do all that stuff tho, just fast runs) was the best running year of my life.

Words of Wisdom

"Promise yourself to be so strong that nothing will disturb your peace of mind.
See the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true.
Think only of the best, work only for the best and expect only the best.
Forget about the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
Spend so much time on the improvement of yourself that there is no time to criticize others.
Live in the faith that the whole world is on your side so long as you are true to the best that is in you."

"Fall in love or fall in hate. Get inspired or be depressed. Ace the test or flunk the class. Make babies or make art. Speak the truth or lie and cheat. Dance on tables or sit in the corner. Life is divine chaos. Embrace it. Forgive yourslef. Breathe. And enjoy the ride. "
