Back In Action!

Hello Dolls! I am happy to report that my laptop is back to functioning and I will be back in business on posting! Woo Hoo! I want to jump in right where I left off and share with everyone the work outs I have been doing! There has been some progress and I am very excited to share the details!

As for running, I have really been trying to kick it up a notch because I did something crazy and signed up for a 5k! While I was in FL I got a Groupon email about a 5k in Richmond called the Color Me Rad run! Noticing that it was similar to the Color Run I decided to take a chance and sign up!

The run isn't until July but I wanted to test myself now to see where I stood in running a 5k. On my first try I ran  it at about 36 minutes, not too bad but definitely left room for improvement. Today however I attempted to shave off some time and ended up running it 3 minutes faster in 33 minutes! I was happy with this time but would still like to get it down to 30 minutes if not less. I'd also like to keep increasing my distance as well as my speed so that hopefully I can sign up for a 10k!

As for strength training, I have been staying on target and alternating days between arms and legs. Most of my workouts have been coming from pinterest, here's a few of my favorites!

Hope everyone is having a great week, only more 2 more days until Friday!

Yours truly,
