Hey y’all! I woke up this morning to a still-sore ankle and sunshine…
…I chose to focus on the sunshine.
My boys left for an all day basketball shootout around 7, and I hit the coffee pot hard after they left. Katie and I are skipping out on the shootout today. It’s an hour drive over crappy roads, and then tonight we have a baseball game at 6 so we opted out…plus we have the same shootout for three Tuesdays in a row, so we’ll catch the next one.
Something else I hit hard after my boys left, my #SheReadsTruth Bible study:
I am so beyond thankful that I serve a God that allows me to take refuge in Him. I said more than once during my year of treatment that I felt like I just hid beneath His robe; seeking comfort from my Savior and letting Him calm my fears. I am so thankful that my God is there…every.single.time.
On a completely different note, my run streak may be over, but workouts continue of course!
Today I started Fitnessista’s Summer Shape Up 2012! I have been a reader of Gina’s for a long time, and she was one of a few blog friends that really stepped up and encouraged me throughout my diagnosis and treatment for breast cancer. Though we’ve never met, I consider her a friend. Isn’t that weird how that happens?
I was sweating my booty off during this workout. All the moves are done as super-sets…so that means little to no break between moves. Just.keep.moving.
I got out my trusty ankle brace this morning and walked for 10 minutes at 12-15% incline at a slow 3 mph to warm up, then did the moves that Gina had demonstrated and laid out, then finished up with 30 minutes of HITT (doing 1:30 at 12% and :30 secs at 15%). Who says you have to run to get your heart rate up there?! Wow! It was a good one!
TOTAL DISTANCE: 2 miles
TOTAL TIME: 40:00
AVERAGE SPEED: 3 mph
AVERAGE HR: 162
Like I said…sweaty beast.
Yes, cancer, you still suck.
This is my feeling at this very moment:
Have you done your breast self-exam lately? Or are you due for your mammogram?? Just.Do.It.
