Hello!!! It has been so long since we last talked- how is everyone doing? I am doing quite splendid because I had a lovely time with my family and friends, playing board games, resting, and eating great food! Let's recap, shall we?
After work, I met up with a few friends to eat Bruxie waffles and play Cranium. Me and my partner, Christina totally pwned face! We had an awesome time playing and called it a night early.
On Saturday, I took Shanaz to a track by my house for a interval training session. With my calf on the fritz, I opted to stand on the sideline while Shanaz ran her laps & just took creepy pictures of her while I waited. I hope she doesn't mind. I am so excited because, in a few weeks, her and I will be running our 2nd half marathon together!
Sunday was spent cooking, cooking, and more cooking! I will share the yummy recipes I made up a little later this week, but I can tell you for now that I am super excited to share them with you!
I also hit up the gym with Kevin and Jake for a bit and did some weights before doing some light cardio on the bike. My calf was feeling really tight & I am trying not to screw it up more before the half marathon, so I thought that the bike was my safest bet.
Before the bike, I did weights with Kevin and Jake. I began my workout with a few corrective exercises for my legs & then learned a new dead lift, a la Kevin. After completing 3 sets of 12, my legs and gluts were burning and I KNEW I just had to share this awesome workout with you all! Here it is:
- It helps me to help build more strength and stability in my hips
- Because I am progressing my strength and transistioning my weight training to olympic lifting, these dead lifts are a great stepping stone in that direction
- I deperately need to strengthen my gluts and this dead lift does just that!
With 1 week left of winter break, I find myself excited to get back to school! I am taking a lot of fun classes with my friends from school, so I can't wait to start! Plus, seeing as this is my last Spring semester of undergrad, I am pretty stoked to get this semester going so I can finish! One of my friends asked me if I had planned a graduation party and I just gave her a blank stare. I thought to myself, “I get one of those?” But, ever since she said that, I have been more then excited to finish and finally earn my degree!
Okay, enough school talk. I have to get going. I have got a fun-filled day lined up at work. Catch you later!
