Gold's Gym Body Transformation

The program is officially over and we had our final measurements this weekend. I did much better than I had expected losing a few pounds, but also losing 2% body fat, and 10 inches from my body. We also did our end of program fitness test and I made huge improvements going from 25 laps on the running beep test to 50 laps, from 5 push ups to 19, and from 20 situps to 30. I'm happy with my results considering I had made zero progress midway through the program, so basically all of this happened in the five weeks where I switched up my routine and learned to love the 5am workout! Thanks Paige! I'm looking forward to continuing in the 4 week small group training programs!!

Johnny's Runnin of the Green

Oh happy day! Two years ago, this race marked my fastest 5 mile run. Last year, not so much as I ran with a massive chest cold. This year, I was back on track and ran my best 5 miles ever! Yay! I did all my training in the gym and maybe went for one outdoor run. Oh yeah, also had the BEST bagel EVER post race. They ran out and the hotel made more that came out piping hot and amazing! Love the post run bagel!

Next up: Flower City Challenge Half Marathon!
