The Pumpkin King 5k

The post is sponsored by Level Up Virtual Runs and no other compensation is given.

I have been slacking on running lately most of this year, I am slowly (a little too slowly) getting back into it. I have gained weight and I have missed it. It seems my life is a non-stop whirlwind and its quite annoying.

I have a future race planned out later this month, and since it is Halloween time and I am excited for the holidays, I am going to jump in and participate in The Pumpkin King 5K Virtual Run.

The one thing that I like about virtual runs is that I can run / walk them anytime and anywhere. Plus, no matter where you live, you can even join me! We can earn the same bling!

The cost is only $25 - which is super reasonable. BUT if you use code PUMPKINKING you can get 10% off! That extra discount is basically a Starbucks Coffee. :-)

I will be running my Virtual Run this weekend - when do you plan on running yours? Are you going to join me in The Pumpkin King 5K?

Working It Out On Sunday

Sunday was a workout in our condo clubhouse. I am not a fan of the clubhouse. The remodeled it earlier in the year and I figured it would be nicer, and in a way, it is. But the treadmills and bikes are all old crap. Anyways, before I get into another rant of how much I hate something, I'll just get to my workout.

The BF worked out on the recumbent bike for about 20 minutes then did some weights and then went back to the bike for 10-15 more minutes. I did a mile on the treadmill.Speed was 5.0 with a 3.0 incline.

I then did the some free weights. I worked my arms so much that my arm muscles are toast a half hour later. They are very shaky.

I got back onto the treadmill and did 2 more miles messing with the incline and speed. From 3.0-5.0 incline and speed from 5.0-7.0.

I listened to my ipod the whole time as the lady on the treadmill next to me was watching a PBS sewing program, but thankfully decided to turn it to River Monsters. The BF appreciated her for that.

One of my new favorite songs to listen to while working out is Drowning Pool with Rob Zombie - The Man Without Fear.

During this song is where I kicked up the treadmill to 7.0 for a quarter mile.

I made sure to spend quite a bit of time after stretching and cooling down while drinking a purple powerade zero.Of course I am dehydrated a bit as I had 2 Saturday night G&T's and will be having some wine with dinner tonight at the BF's moms house. 

What is one of your fav songs to listen to? I repeated the song above, which I love, along with Babes In Toyland's Real Eyes for most of my last mile today.

What's on the dinner menu for tonight? We are having Chili. Yum.

  1. I think you are awesome b/c you too listen to Rob Zombie while running!! There's just something about the "Living dead girl" song!! Anyways, I'm a blogger from Pullman, WA and wondered if you were planning on doing any of the races in Spokane, WA in 2012? I realize that's a big drive for you, but closer than Seattle... :)
