* I am finally better! Woohoo! I do have to admit though, that I really liked not running for awhile. Like I mentioned before, I have basically been training non-stop since last February, and I just got completely worn out. So, although it sucked being sick, it was nice to just REST for two weeks. I don't know what will happen in my marathon in 10 days (YIKES!), but it will be whatever it will be. I am not running this to BQ or anything. This may sound crazy, but qualifying for Boston is just something I really don't care about. So, I'm going to have fun, enjoy the warmer weather (yay for 60 degrees!!), and support my husband in his first marathon! Oh, and hopefully it won't end with me dry heaving and puking like my first one...YUCK!
The workout was fun and TOUGH! I am still sore today, but I love it! I am definitely going to try and go to more classes! It will be hard to fit it into my schedule, but until I can afford a TRX on my own, I'm going to make it work. I can really see how doing that type of "strength training" will be more effective then what I've been doing. Plus, one of the instructors is a triathlete and she designs the workout based on exercises that would benefit triathletes! How cool is that?!
Have any of you used a TRX? If so, what do you think about it? Do you think it's worth the money to buy one??
Other Things Too:
* Remember how I said that things have just been kind of crazy and busy around here? Well, we've been doing a lot of this:
and replace it with new, soft, beautiful, stain free carpet in our basement! Yay!
This carpet was on the floor when we moved in 8 years ago and it was nasty to begin with. But, we didn't have the funds to replace it right away. Then, once we had kids, we decided to wait until they were older to replace it b/c we knew it would get destroyed by them anyways.
It has been A LOT of work! I've been repainting all of the walls because they just need a fresh new coat, and my husband and I are tackling ripping out all of the carpet ourselves to save on costs. So, it's just been a dusty, dirty, painty (I know it's not a word, but it fits) mess! But, my husband and I like doing home projects, so it's actually been kind of fun. :)
I hope you are all having a good week! I have a lot of posts to read, so I'll try and get around to yours soon. Have a great weekend! :)
