I have officially pushed through the first week of all the "hard core" workouts I have lined up and have no intension of stopping.  Yesterday was a bit of a challenge but I did get through it with a smile on my face.  I completed a 5 mile run and later taught an indoor cycling class, RPM for 48 minutes.  The run was tough but the pace turned out to be a 9:15minute pace and that's good for just getting miles under the belt.  The class was AWESOME and a great release for the legs!

This week I would like to continue to focus on "Motivation" because the holidays are here (whether we like it or not) and it tends to get harder and harder to stick to a workout routine when there is so much to do for the holiday season.  I know this is a season of giving but you have to remember to take care of yourself and workout for at least 30 minutes to an hour daily.  If you stay strong then your body will fight off all those germs that come along with the holiday season. . .even the flu!

To kick off this week, I want to congratulate Yolanda Holder (my first FRIDAY FEATURED FRIEND) for being the ONLY WOMAN in the world who has ran 100 marathons in a calendar year twice! She will break her own record December 9th so let's cheer her on and keep her in our thoughts while we run or 5K and 10Ks in the next few days.  LOL! Great job, Yolanda. . .love you!

Also, I want to congratulate the Rancho Bernardo HS Varsity Girls Cross Country team for coming in 2nd place at the CIF Championships this weekend! All seven runners placed in the top 25 and 2 of the runners were in the top 10!  Great job ladies and fantastic job to my freshman daughter who placed 10th place this weekend. So, this weekend the team heads out to Fresno, CA for the Cross Country state meet.  The team is highly ranked and they have a good chance to place in state.  So, before heading out for Saturday morning shopping, please send good vibes to Fresno and the RB CC team's FEET!

Have a great day and HAPPY RUNNING!
