Can’t Get Enough

I woke up yesterday morning, AMPED!

Someone posted that we are 33 days out from the competition and my heart started racing.

I want this.

BAD.

So I pulled on some workout clothes, laced up my running shoes and headed to the track.

My hiney has 33 days to get high and tight!

With the sun shining on my face, I did:

  • Stairs: serpentined twice with curtsy lunges up and walking down
  • Lunges: 400 meters twice, changing the type of lunge every 100 meters
  • Sprints: 1 mile, sprint the straight, walk the curve

After eating and getting everyone up and around for the day, it was time for a fresh set of workout clothes and training with Tionna.  The workouts have changed once again and she really put me through a beating.  It was exhausting yet EXHILERATING! I felt so strong and focused.

EYE OF THE TIGER!!

It was nice out yesterday so Tionna and I decided to meet up again for some outdoor fun.  I grabbed some food, hit the grocery store, and, yes, ANOTHER set of clean clothes.

It was a beautiful day for a trail run.

And then we ran up the side of a dam and we both thought we might die right there on that hill.

Who is that girl, by the way? Dang.

I headed home to rest and eat and then…..

You guessed it, slapped on another set of workout clothes and Tionna and I headed to yoga.

I couldn’t get enough yesterday….of exercise or Tionna, obviously! ha!

It’s going to be me and her everyday, all day, for the next month.

This is when I am SO THANKFUL that I have Justin’s support.  Yes, he feels neglected and he lets me know.  We stay open and communicate about it.  But, he knows where my focus is right now.  He knows how bad I want this and he supports me.  I could not ask for a better partner in life.

He lets me be me.

I could not do this with out HIM.

Yoga might be an every day thing for the next month.  I need to keep my head clear and my muscles stretched.  Everything is INTENSE right now and I want to stay healthy physically and mentally.

Thank you for reading and supporting.  I feel the love!

I better go do some laundry!

  1. That double biceps/hill pic is amazing! But it doesn't do the hill justice, that is crazy steep, it's probably a 60% or more incline. It is difficult to walk, let alone run or jog it.

    Stacy- You. Got. This. GO!!!
