Let me start by saying, I ROCK.
Today's workout started with a 10 min at run at 5.5 mph. Then, it was on to a chest CRIT, where I did dumbbell presses with THIRTY POUND DUMBBELLS! Yee HA! Sprinkled in there were my cardio bursts, which I did at 6.0 mph for the first minute, then 30 second intervals - 6.5 mph, 7.5 mph, 8.5 mph and 9.5 mph!! I added some cardio onto the end, and ended up running 3.5 miles in 35 minutes!! Wow. I cannot believe I am running a 6.0 mph pace, consistently!
I was down to 170 this morning and I KNOW I will see the 150s soon - maybe even by March 1. My moms running group starts soon and the extra running can only help my situation. :)
I love the fact that I'm starting over with a renewed energy and a stoked fire. I look in the mirror at the gym and imagine myself at the gym in the spring and summer with the same little racerback tanks I see the other fitness mamas wearing. That will be me, with a muscular back, sinewy arms, and sculpted abs. I was even trying to imagine what bottoms I will wear - probably capri leggings and biker shorts.
Bring on the Spring!!!
