Did you know I was a gym rat? Foursquare tells me so because I have been to the gym at least 10x in the pat 30 days. WOW! Here is what they sent me when I got the badge a few weeks ago
“10x trips in 30 days? Go reward yourself to the nastiest double cheeseburger you can find (bonus points for cheesy fries and milkshakes). And ps: you look nice today!” by Foursquare
Ha that cracks me up! Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would be called a gym rat but it’s all good……anyway here are my workouts for the week.

Time: 1 hr+

Do you remember my vertical knee raise challenge for September? Woot woot, I met my goal to do TWENTY vertical knee raises. It was not easy but I did it. Now the goal is to obviously perfect them and to ultimately be able to raise my knees higher but it feels good to have accomplished that.
Time: 1 hr 54 min.
My Garmin was not charged so I didn’t get total calories burned during the walk. Using Kev’s stats from his Garmin. Average speed was 3.2 miles per hour. So if we keep with that it should take us just over 4 hours to walk the 1/2 marathon. I hope our speed gets just a tad better before then so we can finish the race in under 4 hours. I might just have to book it towards the end ha ha. This walking thing is not easy. My feet and hips hurt like CRAZY! And my hands get so swollen when we walk it’s annoying and painful too. Ohhh and can I complain about one more thing? All I have to say is CHAFING, ouch! But I’m happy to see that we weren’t too far off from what half the race would be. I CAN do this, yes I CAN!
Time: 1 hr
So overall a really good week!
How about you?
