All is well, ESPECIALLY because my wonderful sister/seester & bro-in-law updated me with some pix of my nephew, so bear with me while I do some pic-bragging! :) He's almost 14 months! :) LOVE HIM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If anybody was really interested in studying the true effects of Endorphins, they really ought to study my brain after a Turbokick class. Silly, I know, but SERIOUSLY, folks, this class and the intensity we keep, holy cow I have some serious neurons firing!!!!!!! Well, I don't know the correct terminology, but you know what I mean. It's not a runners' high for me, its a TURBO high!! Good stuff!!!!!! If you're even in Spokane Valley, (or if you live here & aren't a member) let me know and I'll get you a guest pass for a class!!!!!!!

TUE/THURS. Routine Change

Starting today, I have my twice a week 6am workout with Fiona. Tuesdays & Thursdays until competition. Soooo, that makes for a very long tue/thur. for the next three weeks, because those evening I have Hip-Hop from 7:30-8:30pm. I will DEFINITELY have to find time for a power nap! :)

The rest of my weekend went well. SUNDAY we went on a hike with our friends Jen & Keith. We hiked a 7.5 mile loop trail in Liberty Lake. JUST GORGEOUS!!!

I showed my trainer my diet for the next three weeks, and she noted that it's pretty low carb. I'm not throwing actual numbers out there for ya, because everybody and EVERY - BODY is different. As a matter of fact, I actually feel really great, even with the high intensity workouts....... but should I need to adjust accordingly, I certainly WILL!!! I'll keep ya posted..... :)

I typically do sprint intervals on the track or my treadmill, but yesterday I did them on the upright bike and it TOTALLY killed the legs! It's really easy to control and change intensity. I think I'll be doing this a lot more. It's much kinder to the knees, as well! :)

Alright, have a WONDERFUL DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!
