Bringing back the two-a-days and other things

Willie is on a mission to remind me I’m just a few days done from the 50K! I have some aches and pains and he’s on my butt about giving it time. You know what I say to that?

See @fueledxrunning there are people who see it my way! #marathonmaniacs #26point2 #running #truth #instarunners #igrunners #runaholic #joy
Yep! That’s right.

It’s the time of year when it’s getting hotter outside and the nearby races are coming to an end. That means one of two things. 1. I need to start traveling or 2. I’m going to have to hit the streets and run. I’m going to Kentucky in two weeks though and then California at the end of May. I have trips on the horizon and I’m making plans for the summer.

I ordered my new hydration pack yesterday and I’ll have it on Friday. I’m excited. Pictures when it arrives, but you might not be that interested.

Watermelon nuun

Speaking of hydration, watermelon NUUN is back in stock and I got mine yesterday! And I got the cool watermelon bottle.

I might have a @nuunhydration bottle problem but I love them! I can't imagine not having them in my life. I know it's ridics but these are seriously the best bottles for your hydration needs! How else can I enjoy my fav flavor cherry limeade without a bot

I’m not sure if I shared my bottle collection with you on the site, but here it is. So now you must be thinking I need another bottle, right? I think my husband thinks differently.

Anyway, I’m getting back into the workout routine.  I chose to sleep in on Monday and not workout.  I thought I needed the rest and there was a huge thunderstorm that passed through anyway.  Cut the power at the gym, so I was better off in my bed.

Taught my 5am cycle this morning and did some strength exercising and stretching this afternoon. My hamstring is really knotted up since the race so I'm easing back into things. But I'm also trying to get back on a regimen to keep with consistency. Recove

Yesterday though I had no choice but to get up and workout because I had to teach my 5AM class.  I couldn’t let the people down.  And then in the afternoon, I did a leg workout.  I’ve been skimping on my afternoon workouts lately and completely wasting time.  I’m really trying to push myself back into these workouts and not getting complacent.  Two-a-days are coming back.

Didn't think it was possible but everyone left me alone long enough to get a workout done in my office over lunch. Did @toneitup #beachbarre and @runnersworldmag strength. #wycwyc #fitfluential #ffcheckin #fitfam #tiuteam

Except this morning, I slept in.  I didn’t go.  It’s so bad, right?  Well I had to make up for that workout so I worked out on my lunch break.  I did some running strength exercises and a Tone It Up Beach Barre workout.  I was kind of nervous about it because I wasn’t sure if people were going to bother me in my office while I was working out.  But I gave everyone the heads up and no one knocked on my door.  I won’t always be able to do that but at least I could do it today.  So I got one workout in today.  It’s all about What You Can When You Can! (FYI: Book review coming soon.)

I am really making myself do these afternoon workouts because I need to get back in the habit.  I may have to whine and complain through them, but I’m glad that I get them done.  It’s hard for me because I’ve become this morning workout person (not this week…or last week either) and I just don’t want to workout in the afternoon.  I’m trying to push through this.

Are you a morning, afternoon or evening workout person?
