No catching up...

I haven't been posting but that doesn't mean I haven't been working out...
I've taught My regular Monday Friday spin classes and have been playing with new new age types of music. My classes seem to like it and give me funny looks when it is some language they can't figure out. It's been good.
Saturday my spinning class was entirely full with people still trying to come in, including Rick. He ran 16miles before the class so I didn't feel too bad for him. He instead took the kids to the book store and for hot chocolate.
I love a big class that allows me to do some grouping exercises. I split the class into three groups and did the track cycle of sprint, climb, and recover. Rotating in various increments of time. IT is my one of my favorite classes to teach although i mess up on the order sometimes.
I have been back into running more...last Tuesday i ran 4 and Thursday I ran 5. Saturday i taught the spin class and ran 7.68. It was a tough run but overall I was glad i did it and my hip did alright. My biggest struggle was with energy. I was grateful I stuck some conversation hearts in my pocket before I left.
I also was dedicating my run to the president of my church who passed away last week. It was a nice time to pay tribute to such a great man.
I really am thin king that I want to do the Yakima marathon in April...I know I'm not up to that mileage yet, but I think that if I just took it slow that I certainly could finish it. Maybe not my best time ever, but then Rick and I could do it another one again.
I'm still planning on the Snake River half marathon on March 1st. If that goes well then I think I will take on the Yakima. I think I would feel pretty left out if Ricky did it and not me. Not that I'm a little girl trying to keep up with my big brother...but I just love it when we can do these things together! We shall see.
overall things are going pretty well and I'm just going to keep working on getting my mileage up. Hopefully 10 miles next Saturday.

you go girl!

if you run yakima, let me know how it is... I've been wanting to do that one for a few years now.

and remember to take things slowly--especially with your recent hip injury... but I'm sure you'll be able to do it, and kick some trash!
