Amp your workout

Well!  I love to amp my workout, but now I can barely lift my arms to type.  I have a couple workouts to share this morning.  My faithful 5:15 a.m. clients showed up this morning a little draggy (:  On Tuesday we went through a pretty EXTREME workout.  I did most of it with them and I’ll say it was a doosy!  Try this one on for size (:

0001wrOne of my clients was especially dizzy and tired so I thought of a supplement that was recommended to me.  It’s a pre-workout drink to boost your energy. I put half a scoop in her water and put 3/4 of a scoop in my water since I was heading to the gym afterwards.  I also made them a THURSDAY TREAT.  Search for GRANOLA BARS on my blog and the recipe will pop up.  I left out the chocolate chips.  They are SOOOOOO yUMMMy!  Anyway!  I went to the gym without much time and cruised through 35 minutes of weights and 20 minutes of intervals on the treadmill.  I LOVED this workout drink.  I AM absolutely positive I could feel a difference especially since I was running on 5 1/2 hours of sleep.  NO excuse to start downing caffeine!  I will be better at my sleep, but this drink definitely helped.  I didn’t have to rest as much and I could lift heavier and quicker.  Loved it!!  Here’s a PIC!!  It’s called C4.  It’s at bodybuilding.com  Click to read about what’s in it!

I’ve enjoyed the change of pace without my marathon training.  I am looking forward to being a spectator this weekend at the Ogden Marathon.  Several of my friends are running and it will be so NICE to watch!!  I’m going to try to run the last few miles with one of my friends who wants to qualify for Boston…again.  She’s amazing and could do it without me!

Well I must be on my way.  I need to stop and help my daughter at the junior high.  Last but not least, a couple pics. from the Mother’s Day kick ball game with the 3rd graders.  We kinda killed em’  It was a lot of crazy fun.  I love this time of year.  ENJOY!!
