19 Weeks Out! 25.1.12
It is amazing how fast the time goes. I had a successful week last week. I ate completely on plan except for one day when I missed a meal. This plan is really agreeing with me! I lost a nice amount of fat AND gained a smidge of muscle! It is amazing what having a coach to keep you accountable will do. I am so totally focused where just last month I was trying so hard to get motivated and eating everything in sight meanwhile!
I have to say though Jo’s leg workouts are INSANE! What a difference though! I thought I was training hard before. I must be building the best legs and butt EVER. LOL
So on the competition prep front I have been trying to find a song for my routine. This is really difficult. I want it to be something I love, something that will entertain the audience as well and easy to pose to. I am still working on that. I think the problem is that I have never posed to a song before so I really have no idea what I can pose to. I want some awesome song with a fantastic beat and lots of bass LOL.
Speaking of posing, I need to start working on that. I have clear heels to wear for practice . I also have my suit but it needs stoning.
In other news I am doing the Warrior Dash on Feb 11th! So I have been running on the 15% incline on the treadmill, well slow jogging to begin with and then trying to sprint haha. I just hope to not totally suck! I have wanted to do one of these for ages. We’ll see how I go. There is a whole team of us trainers doing it.
We have an uphill climb in Nelson bay to a lookout where you can see whales and the whole bay. Its pretty steep and the first several times I walked up it I thought I was going to have a heart attack.
Well the other day I ran a good portion of the way, I got let off the hook a little though because people were in the way and I had to stop and wait for them but still, I could not run up ANY of it AT ALL before.
This week I have been home more than usual and I have been trying to get out and enjoy the area. I went to the beach this morning for cardio instead of the gym, but the tide was coming in, so I ran in the deep sand instead of where it is all compacted next to the water like I usually do. Oh man that is really hard. I remember a time though when walking in deep sand was like walking through molasses with bricks tied to my feet and a log on my shoulders haha. It is cool to look back and see how far you have come.
So that’s about it for this week! Train hard and if you think your training hard, train HARDER! ;)
