Three Things Thursday

1.  Holding true to my goal of more cross-training, I took a spin class last night.  It wasn’t nearly as hard as the last one I took about five years ago when I lived in Jackson.  Either I’m in much better shape now than I was then, or the class just wasn’t as intense.  I’m thinking it’s probably a combination of the two.  (I wanna do one of Janae’s classes!  I bet she really sticks it to ’em!)  The only thing really sore today is my rump.  Well, that and a certain lady part, but we’ll steer clear of that conversation.  And the class did pretty much confirm my theory that my glutes are weak.  Which is why…

2.  I think I’ve strained something in my butt.  I’ve felt a little tightness in my right glute since a hill workout about a week ago.  It’s nothing major.  Just some tightness and a little soreness.  Just to err on the side of caution I will probably take a couple of rest days after my …

3.  Burfday 5K!  (If you haven’t already, go leave a comment on that post if you’d like to participate.)  Yep, Monday is my birthday, and if years were miles I would be 50K.  We’re going out tomorrow night to celebrate with some friends, one of whom is turning 40.  Not 40K, 40 YEARS!  haha  I keep telling these people I’m too young to have friends that are 40 and have teenagers themselves.

  1. hmmm, burfday 5k sounds fun! I'd like to run please…will there be a VIP tent for bloggers?

    There is a great glute stretch, sitting on the floor with your legs extended, place your left foot to the right of your right knee and pull your left knee towards your chest & turn your torso…lol, if that makes sense!


  2. I took two spin classes this week and they were so totally different from each other. Monday's instructor and Wednesday's instructor were just SO different. It really does make a huge difference…BUT I bet you are also in much better shape!

    I also have a pulled butt muscle 😦
    My runs seem ok, but I feel it with every step when I'm walking…


  3. Happy Early birthday!

    I'm still in for the virtual 5k. I was going to combine it with Adam's run, but I'd like to push myself and do two separate runs. Or one 10k split in half. We'll see.


  4. Oh boy my glutes are weak too. I pulled a muscle a few years back and felt super embarrased making a doctor's appointment for my butt pain.

    When I got to the doctor he pulled out his little clipboard and in his smooth doctor voice says, “So you've been having some pain in your hip?”

    Aaahh! The hip! Why didn't I think of that?!

    Hope your lady parts feel better and you have a wonderful birthday celebration!
