Today, I totally committed to my crosstraining when I joined the Super Secret Jillian Michaels Workout Society for a little Body Revolution. My plan is to crosstrain 3 days a week for the next 10 weeks to hopefully bring about some balance to my currently-cardio-heavy routine.
The group is on week 3 now so I am kind of jumping in where it starts to get hard. Some of the moves were IMPOSSIBLE...but I modified and kept going and now feel a certain sense of accomplishment for having sweated it out. I just wish I'd worn my fitbit to see how it translates there....
As per my 36 Resolutions, I have some very specific running goals that I would like to conquer this year.
First up - the 5k. I REALLY want to prove IN A 5K RACE that I can come in sub-30 mins (I've proven it a few times in 10k races). So - today I registered for a 5k. The St Patrick's Day Road Race put on by the Calgary Road Runners
This was such a fun race last year and, while I PR'd...I'd really like to prove what I can do this year so will be focusing this as my sub-30! Plus speed and hill workouts are nice for lunch hour!
Oh - and this past weekend - I bought myself some rewards for a job well done in Florida! MEC has an amazing clearance section and I was only in the store to score some new running underwear...when I stumbled upon this beauty:
Meet my new winter running jacket! The Ice Queen Ultra. Bye bye shapeless Resolution Run jackets of years past...Skirt Sports to the rescue with something flattering and lovely! And a helluva deal at $63 (the SS website lists it at $160)
I can't wait to give it a trial run tomorrow at lunch!
