Decided to run 10 for the New Year.  HAPPY NEW YEAR TO EVERYONE ON THE BLOG.

Jeff L came to my house @ 9 am this morning.  Temps were ideal, roads were a little slushy, and fast company was welcome.  Thanks for the tempo run Jeff.  AP 7:52.  Jeff was in front of me from the half point on.  Dang, he was quick today.

Early TM miles.  I was on a TM next to "Spandey." Spandey is some dude always wearing you-got-it, spandex.  He thinks he is going fast on his TM, but that particular TM is messed up on the speed setting.

Went back to the gym during lunch and lifted.  2 more fast miles on the TM.

*Danced ALL day long.  Fun, but my foot with PF becomes inflamed when I do this. 

*PM workout: ICE-SKATING!!  I almost love ice-skating as much roller-skating.

Afternoon run after a 3 hour nap!  I thought that I would take this as an easy run, but my body will have none of that.  

I went on a new trail by my house and I really enjoyed it.  I saw 3 HUGE dogs that I had to yell at that were in fenced areas.  There was a big friendly unleashed dog with his owners that started coming after me.  Luckily the pup was well mannered and listened to his masters. 

The trail led me through an area of Lehi I have never really noticed.  Funny how running helps me be more observant of my surroundings. 

AP 7:33.  I took two little breaks at the ends of the trail. 

PM MandP weights.  Today my students kept asking me to flex for them.  I think the program is wokring. :)

BBK RUN!!  I was late to early miles this morning so I ran 2.5 by myself.  Ran a nice tempo with Walter for awhile.  Left Walter and ran with the rest of the group to make it to 9.  Nice recovery run. 

AP 8:17

PM weights one hour and 15 minutes hard effort in the elliptical.

Trying to decide what to do with my running.  Go up to the mountains?  Hit the TM?  This air is terrible!  Worst in the nation. 

So...I went on the TM 5 miles and 2 miles on the track.   Pretty sure I have a STRESS FRACTURE in my lower left leg. GGRRRR.  I am so frustrated.  I am taking the week off from running. Doesn't ever help that I won't slow down for the life of me when I am on the TM. 

Hopefully I will me ready for next week, but most likely no.  

Lifted weights for 1 hour.

Triathlon training in session!  Not by choice.

AM Swam a mile plus change in 40 minutes.  I think I forgot how to swim.  I kept running into the lane and now there is a big bruise on my elbow.  And people tell me running is dangerous? 

PM spin class.  I worked my HR up to 180.  No matter how hard I work, I swear it will not go past that.  I have found that I really enjoy spin class because I get to close my eyes.  Crazy, but for some reason closing my eyes helps.

Body feels good.  Gotta love xtraining!

Spin class with Coach Mike.  I swear this guy is a coach of some sorts.  He came to class in a BYU jump suit ready to kick our trash.  When the class started he was hardly on his bike, he was down on the floor encouraging the class.  He asked me if I was biker because of my biking form.  I am told him I am a runner! 

This is was the first class of the week that actually felt like I was on my real road bike.

MandP workout.

No work today so I came home and slept.

I still have not gone to the doctor's to seek an opinion on my leg.  All of the signs of my leg are pointing to a stress fracture, and that's that.  I am not running for a few weeks until I am healed.  Besides, it's a great excuse to get out of the smoggy pollution.  I am little depressed that I won't be able to run Painter's, but such is life.

1 hour spin class with SPANDEY a.k.a Skinny Danny.  His class is one of my least favorites.  About half of the class I spend thinking how obnoxious he is.  I still managed to have a dang hard workout.

90 minutes of pool running with RAD!!!  Those 90 minutes flew as we chatted in the small pool.  It was so great to spend time with a great friend that is going through some of the same frustrations I am.  Way to stay motivated Rachel!  We will be back at the pool before you know it.

My leg feels awesome.  Well, until I start doing jumping jacks.

Insanity

1. a dearranged state of the mind usually occuring as a specific disorder. 2. such unsoundness of the mind or lack of understanding as prevents one from the mental capacity required by law to enter a particular relationship, status, or transaction as removes one from criminal or civil responsibility.  3.  A: extreme folly or unreasonableness. B. something utterly foolish or unreasonable.

There are no other words to describe my gym experience this morning.  As I stood outside of the gym at ten minutes to 5 A.M with a crowd (30 or so), all I thought was, "Insanity!

One question is now remaining:  When will those with new-year's resolutions die out?  Sadly, I hope their goals diminish. 

5 AM spin class. Sweat.

Afternoon weight session.  MandP.

I ran by force this morning. Injury didn't start bothering me until mile 1. GRRR. I am frustrated. Probably two more weeks off.

40 minutes on the elliptical.

Cheered on the runners at Painter's Half Marathon. I was jealous of all of the runners running in the beautiful weather and surroundings.

My friend Matt ran in my place. He did the half in 1:32 and took 3rd in my division! I was extremely proud of him! He has not raced for a few years and PR'd his half by 20 minutes. My friends Jeanna and Megan also ran. They both came in a little over 2 hours. Great job everyone that raced.

30 minutes in the weight room.  100 pushups, shoulder work, and tri-pushups.  I can tell that my body is recovering from yesterday's workout.

60 minutes on the elliptical maintaining HR @ 163.  Again, this workout is proof of how tired my body is.

Tried to Tri.  

1 hour spin class with Spandey. AKA Skinny Danny.  He wasn't as annoying as he usually is.  His class still drove me a little crazy.

1 hour on the elliptical

ManP workout (about 45 min total)

I did get an evening swim in.  20 minutes pool running and 800 meter freestyle. 

The most pleasant part of my gym experience was spending it with RAD.  Time on the elliptical went so much faster with her by my side.  I saw Jeff L and Melanie B and introduced them to RAD.  Thank you so much for the enduring workout RAD. 

My family and I are starting a "cleanse" tomorrow and I am actually pretty excited.  I am only blogging this so I can be accountable for my eating for the next three weeks.
