First off, thank you all for your comments about the running skirt issue. Glad to know that I'm not the only one with some real girl legs! Running Skirts is going to let me try one of their skirts and review it for everyone. Hoping that some other companies ( maybe) come to me asking me to review theirs as well so that I get a good comparison. :)
Second - so does anyone else think that October should have been names National I Didn't Train Much month? I mean wow... I looked at my training log. Now granted, I did a marathon and then enjoyed some down time and then got sick, but it's kind of pathetic. Okay, really pathetic. Here are the totals:
Swim - 0 meters. Yep you read that right.
Bike - 84.5 miles. Again, wow
Run - 63.8 miles (of which 26.2 was run in one day...)
Cross training - 4 hours (this is usually the elliptical at the gym movie theater)
Kickboxing - 3 hours
Oh well. I feel better and I'm back on course. I swam today for the first time since September and did actually remember how to swim so that was good. It was slow. And my lungs were burning, but I blame that on the kickboxing I did for an hour prior to the pool, and the cold I'm still getting over. Excuses, excuses.
Kickboxing is awesome! I'm trying to go 3 times a week. It's generally been only twice though. I literally get my butt handed to me on a silver platter every time I put those gloves on (and walk out wondering if I should be ashamed of my ability to work out at that level). Tons of bag hitting, but also squats, lunges, push ups, sit ups, weights, resistant bands, etc. Every class is different. Today we ended with 3 minutes of planks - 3 straight minutes. Yeah, I didn't make it through that. :)
Beach 2 Battleship half is in a week and a half. I'm super excited, but looking at my October numbers scares the poop out of me in terms of readiness. Maybe I'll be well rested and just have a kick ass race. Or I'll die. We'll see...
I received my two giveaway winnings in the mail this week. I'll post pictures soon. LOVE THEM! :)
