3 Runs in 24 Hours

After work yesterday, I hit the gym. This was my 2nd time in one day. I am now doing twoadays on Mondays & Wednesdays. It helps make my legs fatigued for running the next morning (and in the long run, makes me a stronger runner). I had some time to kill before my ripped class was going to start. The only thing I could think to do is run (of course). I was able to put in 3 1/2 miles on the tm before class.

We had a sub for the ripped class (disappointing). But, man, did he kick me ass. There was this one (tiny) section where he had us do wood chopper as fast as we could for about 30 seconds, 3 push ups (I don't do the "girly" ones), right plank, 3 push ups, left plank, 3 push ups, stretch back in childs pose for a few seconds, then repeat (4 times). I am still sore from that!

But, I got up this morning and headed back. I had a tempo 5k (29:41) on the schedule. To go with that, I was back at the weights this morning. I lifted with legs and arms (once again) and had a nice core workout.

So, in total, I've ran 12.6 miles in 24 hours. Pretty good for me! My legs are looking forward to relaxing tonight! I wore a new shirt to the gym this morning. It was so comfy. The great people at My Race Ragz sent it to me. I was able to choose which design I wanted. The shirt had a girl fit to it (for woman, they also have men shirts) and fit in just the right places. The material is very light weight, soft and wicking. I almost want to sleep in it! I had my own photo shoot this morning (after the gym, so don't mind the tired look on my face).

It really does hug in the waist area.

From the side (and my really long arm).

Don't you just love the design. It's so cute!

As you can tell, I need a lot of rest tonight. I did fall asleep at 10 last night (usually enough sleep for me). I am going to do everything I need to do before I leave for work, so I can fully relax when I get home tonight.

What is the most workouts you've done in a 24 hour period?


  1. cute shirt!

    I think the most I've run in 24 hours is 12??

  2. The Goofy Challenge would have to be my biggest workout in a 24 hour period!
