Probably the best perk with our cable company is the "On Demand" feature. I can watch the shows that are offered whenever is convenient for me. It doesn't include everything, but it's better that paying $10 MORE a month for a DVR. There's also plenty of extra programming to choose from, including many fitness shows. I got to try out Bethenny Frankel's Skinny Girl yoga. It was about 22 minutes and it was tough since I haven't done yoga in a very long time AND I was sore. But it definitely helped work out some of the kinks in my quads and by Tuesday I was almost back to normal. Yesterday I didn't even FEEL like I ran 13.1 miles on Sunday. It even seems like it was a month ago or like it didn't even happen! Thankfully I have the medal and photos to prove it did!
On Tuesday I went to the gym and did 30 minutes on the arc trainer, but at an easier pace and intensity than I usually do. Yesterday, however, I hit the arc trainer for 45 minutes, getting in the distance I normally do in that time and then walked for 15 minutes on the treadmill at 3.5 mph on an incline. I'm thinking I'm going to go for a 3 mile run today. The weather is perfect outside. Since I'm such a sweater, the cooler temperatures make running outside a lot more tolerable!
There's been some new developments with our From Fat To Finish Line team. Our Runner #4, Mary, has announced she's expecting! She hasn't given out details about her due date, but I guess running 3 legs of a 200 mile relay race in 36 hours in southern Florida just might be a little too much for any woman just about anywhere in her pregnancy, so she has had to remove herself from the team. Carly, from Carly Shrinks, will now be our 12th runner! You may remember her from her guest post over on Katie's blog. We're very excited for Mary on this new adventure in her life, and we'll miss her in January, but we're also looking forward to you all learning about Carly's inspiring story, as well.
We're less than 3 months away from the culmination of this story and I booked my airline tickets on Tuesday!! So, we've got our travel arrangements pretty much locked down. Hotel rooms and air travel are done. We just have to figure out how Charlie will be getting from Miami to Key West on Saturday, the day of the big finish. I hope you all are pledging over at our Indiegogo fundraising site so can you reserve your copy of the DVD! I know what the portions of my individual story will be like, but I'm SO looking forward to seeing my teammates stories unfold, as well as have our team's first meeting and running this amazing race forever on film.
