Running Update: And the beat goes on

Total mileage:

19.8

Shhoooot!!  If I had known...just two little tenths of a mile short....arrrggg.
  But, this week marked another milestone(no pun intended) for me.  I ran 6.5 miles on the dreamill.  My longest run on the 'mill, to date, has been 6.2.  OOooh, yeah.  
I also was able to cross-train TWICE this week.  It was a little rough and I think I decided that Zumba...well, I don't know.  I love LAtin beats but I think I threw my back out trying to keep up with the instructor.  That was a first.  
She's a tall lanky brown skinned chica like myself, not the tall part, just the brown part, and I figured that since I have the Latin blood of a Cuban running through my veins I should have no problem moving more than one body part at once.  What a joke.  I resolved myself to jumping around in the far corner of the class by myself while the other ladies in their 50's flapped their arms around desperately.  I'm useless.  Yoga and pilates definitely agree with me and my back.  I feel like a million bucks after an hour of that and I always have to wake myself up at the end of class.  Don't know how I end up falling asleep, but I do.  Every time.

Oh, did you know, that the safest way to stretch your back is to squeeze your glutes and do a baby back bend.  Just slightly arch your back, raising your arms and squeezing those glutes to the maximus!  Just a little tip.  
I'm planning on running everyday next week, including Sunday.

Silent cheerleaders, do you have any goals for this next week?

  2. My goal this week is to bump up the intensity on my workouts. I want to burn more than 500 calories every day. I want to make that the rule instead of the exception.
