FFF Diva Challenge: Operation Boot Camp "Biggest Loser" Competition
DAY 11: Monday, January 11th, 2010
Exercise: Today's activity was called "The Centipede." The instructors set up cones in a row and as a participant you weave in and out of the cones by side-shuffling & running. However, you weave in between participants who are at each cone doing an exercise such as holding a plank, sit-ups, push-ups, etc. After those set of cones you run and side-shuffle through another set of zig-zag formation cones. Bottomline is you are running through cones in the shape of a centipede. Oh boot camp at 6am is soooo grand. I will say though that rubber bottom gardening gloves have saved me all these cold and frozen mornings!
After camp I drove back to my house and ran a mile around my neighborhood park. I felt much better today because it was slightly warmer and the cold air wasn't hurting my lungs. PM cardio tonight after work!
Lately I have been getting messages about my running, goals, why I am running, which races I am doing, and how I am documenting it. Below are some useful websites that can address those concerns:
1. Why I am running:
Mile a Day (running for a cause)
My sister Leilani and friend Katherine set up a running goal to run a mile a day for a cause. People sponsor them to run & I join them to support (I also have donated). We are raising money for breast cancer & diabetes prevention.
2. Which races I am running:
I use this website as my running & exercise bible. This website is a great resource to find local races, a running community near you, & fantastic articles to prevent injury & motivate you to be active in general!
3. How I document my running:
I LOVE this website. It's basically a Twitter but for those who run. If you keep a blog you can access a widget to keep a running track of how many miles you ran that day and how many miles you have run overall this year. When you access your profile on the website you have the ability to break down your running data by number of miles, how you felt, running times, and where you ran. You can also link it to your Facebook profile. Technology is fantastic!
Committed to health,
