My very own pink sandbag. I have two individual sandbags in it so I can use 30 pounds or remove one bag and take it down to 15 pounds. I tried to make my own by using a duffel bag and putting an 18 pound bag of dog food in it, but without all the strategic placing of handles, it just wasn't the same. I LOVE this piece of equipment - it is so versatile!!
Then, while visiting Sports Authority the other night, I found some SAQ pieces that I've been eyeing on line and managed to make my way home with these gems:
...came from Fed Ex yesterday (minus the hot girl).
My boot camp continues to grow (too slowly for my liking) but it is by far the favorite part of my work day, so I will continue on!!
I have to say that I feel that my boot camp workouts have gotten me a lot closer to the running speed that I'm striving for. In addition, my legs feel pretty darn AWESOME. 14 months ago, I started running again after being on the sideline for well over a year dealing with achilles and anterior tibial tendinitis/shin splints. Then after recovering from all that, I injured my glute/hammy area and spent all last season being somewhat slowed down by that, but at least able to run. I dreamed of having runs where my legs didn't hurt, and AMAZINGLY to me, my first two track workouts this year have been magnificent. Although I can still feel a bit of tension in my left glute, it feels much better than last year and my speed is significantly better. I'm experiencing a bit of a runners high right now and hoping that it continues all the way through this season!! I am definitely running the Eugene Half again and so now I need to find out >>>WHO is organizing the blogger meet up this year? Who do I need to know is going to be there? I have looked at Raina's Blog and found links to Lauren, Ronda, and Tricia's blogs, but there have got to be more!! Laura?? Are you still planning on running Eugene? What are everyone's goal times? I'm going out on a limb and just blurting it out now. I want that sub 2:00.
