Dumbo Double Dare Training: Weeks 4 & 5

Week four was fantastic…just not for fitness. On Monday I found out I’m a home owner! At work on Tuesday we announced Frozen will be our new ice show, and on Friday Cameron came to visit and we went to DisneyWorld and Legoland. See how it was an awesome week? On the fitness side of things…

Milestone: 600 Miles

Well it didn’t happen when I hoped, but I finally hit 600 miles with Nike+! Three months ago I hit 500 miles. It was right before the Princess Half Maraton and I mentioned I wanted to hit 600 by the Sharks Tooth 10K. Clearly that didn’t happen because I’ve been a slacker with trainer, but I…

This has been my second week of Dumbo training. I didn’t get all three runs in last week, which was kind of disappointing since it’s the easiest week of the training program, but I was determined to put that behind me and have a better week two! The first run came on Tuesday and I…

Zumba Step

Yesterday I expanded my Zumba knowledge and got my certification in Zumba Step! This is the newest form of Zumba and I’ve got to say, it’s a blast. The training started with the Master Class, which was a bit harder than I expected. Just adding the step in to a Zumba routine makes it much…

Dumbo Double Dare Training: Week 1

Back to training! This week was the start of Dumbo Double Dare training. I’m excited and nervous to begin. Excited because I have something to train for again and it’s one step closer to my Dumbo medal! I’m nervous because it’s my first time training in the hot summers of Florida. I’m worried that will impact…
