Track workout with hubby the day after our 5 mile run. Fatigued legs.
I have had some interest in my weight loss tips the past few weeks. I wrote a post with some simple things I did to meet my "Personal" goal weight. If interested please click the Blog Posts "How did you do it?" HERE. I am not a nutritionist...my tips are purely from the perspective of a Running Mom who found personal success. Everyone is different and will travel a different path to health..
Last week we had the annual "Health Screening" at work. I kept my results from last year.. I was down 26lbs from this time last year. Here is a photo of me in August of 2008.
Today I feel fit! I am wearing spandex without worrying about rolls and rump lumps. After 30 years on this planet I am HAPPY with how I look!! I am a girly girl, I like pink, bows, jewelry and all things PRETTY. I have been really tempted to try a Run skirt. On Sunday at the track I was lucky to TEST an outfit from Lucy. Lucy.com has some amazing and ADORABLE items on their website, click HERE to shop.
Here I am stretching wearing me new "Interval Run Skirt" (HERE) and "Pace Setting Tank" (HERE). I love the little Orange Lucy logo on the gear. For fit, I give the top THUMBS up.. Not only does the dark color keep things hidden, it is tight in the right places and 100% comfortable.
At 6'0 TALL I was NERVOUS about wearing the Run Skirt. That is a whole lot of Tall Mom legs to show the world.. The skirt has shorts built in, which makes me much happier than the brief styles I have seen. This skirt also has a POCKET in the back, and we all LOVE pockets on the run. I asked Muscle Man what he thought. Without hesitation he gave his approval and said that this outfit can be my track workout outfit from now on... Big Brother told me "Mommy I like your pretty outfit."
The intervals were TOUGH because my legs were fatigued from the 5 mile Fun Run...but I was still able to pull out some great times (for me) including a sub 7min mile...BONUS!! This outfit makes me SMILE!!!
When we first got to the track we thought it would be FUN to have Blaine try to run a FULL lap with Daddy timing him. Here he is getting ready to go.. FYI we did not tell him to assume the position, not sure how he learned it. Guess from the Track and Field we have been watching lately. ADORABLE!!!
The Little Monster brought his truck and was busy during out entire workout. The TRACK is an amazing place to go for our kiddos and to train our FAST legs...
This week I am in pseudo taper mode to get ready for my 10K on Saturday. Debating on "What to Wear?" Yes, I have my priorities in order :)
