Hiiiii-ya!! How is it going, huh?! I hope you had a fab first day of April!! Mine? Um, to be honest, it wasn’t THAT interesting; although, I was delighted to see the sun shining SO bright!!
SADLY, NO APRIL FOOLS JOKES WERE PLAYED HERE… Call me boring, lazy, or whatever you like, but I’m just no good at it! I think you’ll agree with me when I say, there is a definite art to the whole pranking thing and sadly, THIS artist here, doesn’t have the right touch or tools (people really get into it, you know?)!! BOO, I’M NO FUN!!
HOW IS YOUR DAY GOING?
Again, nothing too whimsically delicious over here, just a girl running a few miles, typing a few words, and (trying) to live her life to the fullest!! I did have an amazingly difficult Fartlek run yesterday, though and trust me when I say, I’m still feeling the aftermath!!
WOWZERS, TALK ABOUT BEING SORE and trying to stay calm in a tough situation!! Thank you Bryan Kest for giving me the mental strength and physical stamina to STAY STRONG in my run!! I did great (and felt pretty strong) pushing a 6:30(ish) pace during the ON portions of the 7.2 mile run! WOOHOO BODY, BRING ON THE HILL WORK…….tomorrow???!!!
AHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Just kidding, I’ll be fine!! Oddly, I kinda like hill repeats!! I know, I KNOW, I’m weird, right?!
DOES ANYONE ELSE OUT THERE LIKE HILL WORKOUTS?! Come on, I CAN’T be the ONLY one!!! Hehe!!
O-K, so I’ve covered MY lack of April Foolness, MY odd love for hill work, and oh yeah, MY sore, crying body…
SO, WHAT’S UP NEXT?! March Madness anyone? Hmmm, maybe a touchy subject for some of you (me included) with it being…
THE FINAL 4 THIS WEEKEND!!! Ohhh…my poor UVA, how I wanted them to win SO badly, but HEY, at least they won the ACC Tournament and Championship!! I have no qualms with that!!
Well, although I’m a huge basketball fan (thanks to my dad), sorry to say, but I’d rather talk about myself now. Wait, reverse it…
NOW MYSELF ABOUT TALK??? HUH??
Well, WHATEVER, unjumble the words and you geeeeeeet… (Say the magic words!! I LOVE RUNNING!!)
TA- DAAAAA!!! NOW, I’M TALKING ABOUT MYSELF!! This will be MY version of March Madness + everything I’ve learned this month!
LET THE MADNESS BEGIN!!! Let me first start by saying…
I TOTALLY KICKED MARCH’S BEEhind because I…
1] RAN SHAMROCK HALF MARATHON IN 1:37:50!!
2] HELLO, MET BRYAN KEST @ STUDIO DC!!! (This one deserved an extra exclamation mark!)
3] REJUVENATED MY VEGETARIAN DIET PLAN BY ADDING MORE PROTEIN!!
4] MET THE MOST AMAZING BLOGGERS EVER (All of you!)
5] CUT MY HAIR AND LOVED IT!!
6] BEGAN SERIOUSLY MEDITATING (The Meditation of Gratitude)!!
7] LOST 10 POUNDS OF BULK AND GAINED 10 POUNDS OF LEAN MUSCLE!!
(Note: Isn’t human nature funny? After naming all of those wonderful things, I’m still sitting here questioning, “Is that all?”)
Yes, that is all Kristin! Geez, I really need to cut myself a break sometimes!! Do you ever feel the same way?
WHAT I’VE LEARNED FROM MARCH (How it has kicked my BEEhind into gear, so-to-speak!):
1] PROTEIN IS IMPORTANT! IT KEEPS ME HEALTHY AND STRONG!
2] LIGHTER WEIGHTS + HIGHER REPS IS GREAT FOR BUILDING STAMINA!
3] LIFTING HEAVY WEIGHTS EVERYDAY FATIGUES MY BODY!
4] RUNNING = HAVING TO BE COMFORTABLE WITH BEING UNCOMFORTABLE!
5] LOSING WEIGHT IS ALL ABOUT MEAL PORTIONING!
6] PRing = THE DESIRE TO KEEP PUSHING!
Whelp, that’s about it for the day YOU wonderful bloggers YOU, so KEEP pushing, KEEP dreaming, and most importantly, KEEP loving!!!!
