Starting today, my training will be moving over to a new site that I’m launching. I should be posting more of my design and art related posts on here instead. Afterall, this is Design Lady NYC and I don’t want this blog to be about just working out, although I’m esssentially designing my body. I’ll still be doing random updates here but on the other site it will be focused on health and wellness.
I overslept for my very first race this past Saturday. I felt terrible. However, my body needed it. Despite emailing the organizers and finding out that I could do it the following day, I decided to bike to the event to see what I had missed. I didn’t miss the festivities. I biked 9 miles there and was happy that I didn’t get messy in the process (even if I’d like to try it someday).
It was almost like a Holi festival. It was incredible, I stayed clear of the powder then biked back home. So, a total of 18 miles. I felt accomplished because I did this all by myself.
The following day, I went to the George Washington bridge via the train all the way up to 175th, biked across and back then went down the west side and back into Brooklyn. The view was absolutely gorgeous. I got home and my garmin tagged 20.19 miles. Wow 38 miles in two days! I soaked in some Epsom salt last night and went to bed early since I had 3 miles in my calendar to log by running.
On the other website, I intend to take a fitness challenge every 30 days to see how it improves my body along with my other workouts. I officially started the 200 squats challenge the other day. I actually loathe squats quite abit and my intention is to learn how to love them by September 24th. I hope that squats count as strength training because making my legs stronger is essential for the marathon.
Two Sundays ago I ran a 10 mile race and I managed to only log an additional 3 miles during that week because my legs are in recovery mode. Thus, I need more strength training. The 10 miler went well, I shaved my time off by 13 minutes from last year. Now, I just had a simple 5k this past weekend but I got to bike 9 miles before getting there. Too bad I didn’t run it!
Back to squats, I’ve been doing quite the research on exercises over the past few months as part of my fitness passions.
Let’s see how this booty looks over the span of 30 days.
