Last weekend, I had the pleasure of doing my first obstacle race, the Foamfest 5K in Kissimmee. First I want to say that I had an awesome time. I went with my BFF and running buddy, Kerri. This is a great race for a beginner runner, and someone who hasn't done or trained for an obstacle race. It's not difficult at all. We got there an hour before the race, which was a really good idea to do because by the time we walked back and forth and registered, the hour was up before we knew it. Registration was pretty smooth, and I saw some pretty interesting people in line.
There were tons of people registering and running the different waves, but I was impressed at how the volunteers kept everything flowing. Kerri and I checked in our bag, and got ready to run.
We went through a few more foam obstacles, and then onto the 8' wall. Here I was impressed at the amount of people that stopped and offered each other support to get over the wall.
After a couple more easy obstacles, we finished off clean, but really wet! Unfortunately, I totally forgot to get a picture of us after the race. Here's a link to some of the race pictures they took of me www.backprint.com/estf.asp?PID=bp%13%7F%40z&EVENTID=111255&PWD=0&BIB=1749
In my opinion, there were a few cons to the race:
1. Not enough obstacles, and not close enough to the start of the race
2. Not enough mud...... on the website it showed a few mud obstacles, and one was just dirt, and the other was a small pond with mud at the bottom.
3. Medal was a little boring.
That said, I would definitely do this race again. The people were awesome and the goodies were good. We got a great t-shirt, a banana, a granola bar and a full cup of beer at the end of the race. The venue was pretty, the volunteers were awesome, and it was just plain fun!!
The have tons more locations coming up soon... you need to check this race out!!!
I did a little more than I have been doing, but I still really slacked this week. I walked 4 days for 30 mins each.... well the 4th day was marching with the high school band in the parade, and that was 3 miles, and I did yoga 4 days last week. Improvement over the weeks before, but this week I am back on the wagon. :) Next week's schedule:
Monday - Turbo Fire Low HIIT 25
Tuesday - Ab Ignitor, 2-3 mile run
Wednesday - Turbo Fire HIIT 15, Sculpt 30
Thursday - Ab Ignitor, 2-3 mile run
Friday - Fire 45 EZ
Sat/Sun - rest day/3-5 mile run
I also need to get back on track with my nutrition. Back to drinking my shakeology every morning, and limiting my portions. This summer I am going to bring it :D

Hi guys, I am sorry... I have been nonexistent for the past few weeks, but I haven't really had anything to post. I have not really exercised at all. First my grandfather died, then my parents came to visit, and then I got a stupid, horrible, no good cold that has been hanging on for over 2 weeks. :( So I really don't have anything to report for last week, I just wanted to get back on track with my blogging. I did bowl last Wednesday, and I ran the Foam fest 5k (I should say ran/walk). It was really fun.... I'm going to be blogging about it in about a week when the pictures are up on the website. I haven't planned my week out quite yet because I am still fighting this stupid cold, but I hope to at least get some exercising in.
How do you get back on track?

It's definitely a fabulous Friday. Valentine's Day isn't a huge deal to me, and I'm not one that would mind if hubby didn't do anything for it. I mean, really, we've been married for over 16 years, and he does things for me all the time. That said, it still is nice to come home and realize that he did get me something. :)
I hope everyone had an awesome Valentine's Day!!!
