Ice, Roll, Repeat

The weekend started out with Vern's No Frill 5K...Sean's first 5K!
 We met up with Jessica and her friend Marissa...
I wasn't racing this one so I started out way in the back.  I had Sean go ahead a little so he didn't have to dodge that many people.  It's an out and back course so we got to see Sean around the half way point.  We cheered him on and after looping caught up to him and stayed with him for the rest of the race.  I was so proud of him, he ran the whole thing and came in around 29 minutes!
I am so happy my husband is running and I hope this is one of many races to come!

After the race Jessica, Marissa, and I ran the course one more time for a total of 7.2 miles.

As I mentioned awhile back I have needed to spend some more time with my two ponies.  First because they need ride time to be finished and completely broke, and secondly because I would like to sell one, and it would be easier if he was completely broke and ride able.  So, I have committed to 3 days a week for 90 days.
Sunday I rode both of them and Phene got to ride also which she loves!
I  was happy to be back in the saddle and really enjoyed being out there with them.

AND...I know this might not sound too exciting to some of you, but I finally found a place to ride across the street where we have enough room to practice cantering.  I wish I had a video (and I will try to get one) of how fast a pony can trot before breaking in to a canter.  I am sure I look ridiculous bouncing all over the place trying to hold on.

All in all it was a nice relaxing weekend.

Workout plans for this week...
Ughhhh....don't know where to start on this one.
My back and my hip are acting up again.....so.....
Monday - Dane's Lower Body Fusion (done)
Tuesday - P90x Yoga for 45 min (done)
Wednesday - Dane's Core Fusion
Thursday - P90X Yoga for 45 min
Friday - Dane's Upper Body Fusion
Saturday - ?
Sunday - ?

As you can see none of my workouts include running :(
I am giving my hips and back a break this week in hope that it will help my hips/back recover from whatever is happening.
Friday I have an Appointment with a well recommended sports massage guy and I am hoping he can help a little.  Meanwhile I am icing and rolling.  Icing, rolling, icing, rolling.

I hope you all have a great week!


  1. Please tell Sean that Dan and I said congratulations! That is so awesome he ran Vern's. Watch out, he may be hooked now! :)

    Glad you have an appointment Friday - thinking of you!

  2. I hope the sports doc can figure out what's going on! I know that can be frustrating :(. And congrats to Sean on his run!! It's always nice to be able to share you passions with those around you :)

  3. Yay for Hubby!!!! I wish mine would make the jump into running. And yay for ponies...what girl doesn't love them? Hope your back and hips start to feel better!!
