Run, Bike, Lift

Thank goodness it's Friday!

For my workout yesterday I had planned to run my regular 3 mile loop and try for about a 7:45 pace. I got a text from my teammate, Alison asking if I wanted to meet her to spin and lift. I left work, changed my clothes and headed right out for the run which I ended up doing at a 7:30 pace but it felt good cause the weather was nice.

I got back to my apartment and changed my clothes then walked to meet Alison at the gym and we spun on the bikes for a bit - this is the first time I ever did this and I should have brought a book or something cause it gets kind of boring but it was a good cool down. I think B-Rabbit and I are going to the gym Sunday to bike so I will be sure to bring a magazine or book to keep me company!! After spinning we lifted and I can definitely feel it today added on from the soreness I already felt from lifting Tuesday!

Today is supposed to be really nice out so it will be a nice practice but most of the team has gone home for break - Abby said she would be there so I will have a running buddy. I am taking Saturday off and spending some time with my mom! Have a good weekend!

way to go!! i think spinning is what you make it... i have been to classes where i literally feel like i'm going to die, and then sometimes i'll just bike on my own/read a magazine to xc and work just hard enough for 30 min. i like being able to bike + read, too, it's a nice change of pace.

Ugh Spinning! I hate it! It's sooo hard for me for some reason! :)
Have a fun practice and your comment was SO funny about the treadmill. I dream I will fall and my face will go into the treadmill and be forever ruined. Wow. I dream big. ha ha.

Good workout!! nice pace on the run!!! Spinning would bore me too. The soreness after lifting always feels good :) it means you worked those muscles!
