Getting back into it

Wow - a break up and a move really take it out of a person.  I'm back!!!

I've been keeping busy with work.  I have started teaching 5 days a week at 5:30a (hello naps during the day) and trying to add more classes to my schedule all the time.  (Bootcamp and spin teacher for hire?)  I'm getting TRX certified in June-hoping to add another class or just fun elements into my bootcamp classes.

Spinning 2-3x a week is great for my endurance.  I did a 10k race a couple of weeks ago and was not sore at all.

I'm keeping up with crossfit at 2x a week.  I'd love to up it to 3x a week but currently have a bootcamp at the same time.  Might look at the schedule to add in a Tuesday class.  Hello looking cute for summer.

I ran the San Jose 408k and had a great time.  This was also the day after I ran the NWM 10k-sync a run from the weekend.  My legs were definitely sore that following Monday.

In April, I headed down with friends to Santa Cruz to race another 10k.  I finished in an hour-which was my goal.  Not my fastest but certainly not my slowest either.

My goal is to complete 13 races for 2013...I have a warrior dash, a couple more 5ks and possibly another 10k.  And a half marathon-that I announced yesterday on the resurrected blog o mine.

I've been toying with the idea of Paleo recently-though I love beer (I'm on untappd) and the occasional indulgence of french fries.  Though I was once told 80% paleo is still better than 100% crap.  I might draw up some guidelines for myself.  I don't believe in making yourself crave/want something and torturing yourself.  I usually do good for about a month and then give in.  

That pretty much sums up my life at the current time-next time I'll dig deeper into some crossfit PRs and workouts.

See Jane Ambassador

It's officially official.  I'm an ambassador for See Jane Run.

June 8th in Alameda will be my first half marathon of the year and another race on my quest to finish 13 events in 2013.

And who doesn't want to run a race with chocolate and champagne at the end?  Join me, there's also a 5k option.
