Juneathon 20/30

imageHappy 20th day of Juneathon. These feet have done a lot today. 10miles on the trails, tap dance at recital and then relaxing at the end of the day going to get ice cream. Hope you had a great day!

Slacking on Juneathon but still exercising! 17,18,&19/30

Sorry about forgetting to post. Ive just been a little off but today is Friday so here is my update for the past three days…I know I’m breaking the rules but don’t tell anyone and it will be our secret!

Yesterday I ran a little over 5 miles, Wednesday I worked late so it was my rest day. Today I ran and tap danced in my recital but I will let the pics show the fun. Enjoy!

After the performance where we tapped away and brought down the house.  Okay maybe not, but we had fun!

Happy Juneathon but most of all Happy Friday!

Halfway done 15/30

Today marks the midway point for Juneathon.

Today marks the day that I start to think, I’m not very good at this blogging everyday part!  (I might want to go back to just submitting pics!)

Today also marks one week from when this exercise gets real again, when that training for my next marathon becomes my focus and I start to lose friends and family members because I have gone into the marathon training world.  Okay maybe not all that, I am not an elite athlete, just a wanna be!  But truthfully this is my last week of slacking and I really need to work on my food plan and training plan so I’m making this short and sweet.

Today I cycled 14.5 miles at the gym and did some weight training.  Can’t wait until tomorrow when I can barely lift my arms over my head due to the weights.  😉

Happy halfway through day of Juneathon!

Gotta get those feet up for recovery

Yesterday ‘s trip to providence where we walked about two miles. For a month in June they light these cauldrons at night.

So pretty. Looking out to the ocean way out there.

Water fire at night. So cool

A busy weekend and my joy of bringing you pics for Juneathon means happy camper because this post will be short and sweet. Enjoy!

2 days of Juneathon – 9/30 and 10/30

After running around like a crazy woman and spending the evening out with friends last night, I woke up this morning and realized that I had forgotten to blog for juneathon.  Oops!  Only 10 days in and already forgetting (really that is the story of my life, I go upstairs and forget why I came upstairs!).

So here is what I would have written if I remembered:

I ran 4.26 miles and it was hot and humid but I ran.  (really not that exciting)

So for today’s Junathon let’s make it a little more interesting…

After 4 solid days of play, play, play

Today is the day, day, day!

I rest but I stretch because my body is the best

When I take a break and rest!

(Very corny poem but it was a little more interesting, I hope!)

Happy 9th and 10th day of Juneathon.

 

Back home and to the gym for Juneathon 8/30

After a wonderful weekend of running on the lovely trails and beautiful view of the lake, I’m back and to the gym for today’s workout.  Today was a cross train day so that meant butt on the bike, some weights, crunches and lots of stretching.  The benefit of being at the gym today was the 10 minute free chair massage which I took full advantage of.  I also finished the day with my last one hour tap class before recital in a week.  Here is hoping that goes well.

How was your 8th day?  Sticking with it.  I’m trying!

One of the most incredible sunsets I've seen in a while on the last night before we had to come home.
