I have been busy with work. (Yeah, right!) And I haven’t written a post in ages.
My 3-4x a week attendance of BodyPump classes and weekends of Dragon Boat training has paid off pretty well! Our team bagged Silver and Bronze medals in a recent Dragon Boat race. Yay!
I was the drummer here!
Woot! Two medals!
I've also been following a training calendar for running too! I run 3-4x a week as well. Long runs are reserved for weekends. Weekdays are my recovery runs, interval/tempo runs and strides. I tell you, these are really beneficial for runners. I've always thought they were fancy training but it really helped me a lot. Take your interval runs, seriously. And for endurance or long-distance runners, be sure not to skip the long runs.
I just recently completed a Half-Marathon race organized by Tri-Factor. The race was the Timex TRI-Run 2010, and it's part of a series of races which will conclude with a TriAthlon race this October. I don't think I'm ready for that yet.
I finished the race in a record 1:55:31! I'm so happy!
Fellow blogger/Twitter fanatic, @MkSurf8, also ran. He joined the 10K race and finished the run before the 1-hour mark! Congratulations to you, Sis! :-D And thanks, @MkSurf8 for bringing me to Dempsey Hill. I had a great filling brunch there!
Very yummy filling Classic English breakfast for only $20!
(And oh, they got yummy servers too!)
'Till next time!
