So, Saturday we had a big RVLution Ditch the Diet meeting for our MonaVie business!
It was such great event and lots of people came out! Wooo... love getting people healthy and wealthy. Part of our RVLution party was to hold a Zumba class for an hour as well to get people moving their bums.
This was my first time doing Zumba ever.
IT. KICKED. MY. ASS. AND. THEN. SOME.
Holy poo is Zumba no joke! I am surprised I wasn't laying on the floor by the end of the session begging for oxygen. Now I know why it is a great workout. My body was sore yesterday, but my poor calf muscles are crying! Ugh. I think I put my body through shock. But it was TOTALLY worth it and nice kick start to getting my butt in shape.
I want to run a 5K.
This is big goal for me because I was cross country runner (and LOVED it) in high school, then got injured with something that will always come back. So I have always been afraid because the pain of suffering from Iliotobial Band Syndrome is no joke. When I first got injured I was out of commission for six weeks. I couldn't even go up and down stairs because of the pain and I refused to get cortisone shots. But, I want to do it today. I wanted someone to do it with me as you know, support, but looks like I am on m own. People won't understand my struggles with the running, both physically and emotionally, so last thing I need is someone thinking they know what is best for me when they have no idea. Might be better off that way anyways. So, I found a couch to 5K plan. Going to try it starting this week. It seems like a good easy transition to get back into running. This will boost my confidence and get me moving. Hopefully. What sucks is that I have two things against me: the Iliotibial Band Syndrome and the bunion and Achilles tendon surgery I had a year ago (have complications from surgery that has made it hard to exercise since I don't enjoy being in pain 24/7). These are my two obstacles to get over and hopefully learn to manage to avoid injury. So, here's to me moving my bum and two hopefully running a 5K this summer and being proud of it!
So, tips on running a 5K? It's been a long time since I have been part of the running world. First thing on my list is to buy a good pair of sneakers. Recommendations?
Think I should stock up on ice... I am pretty sure I am going to need it!
