Free Tickets To The Gun Show!! *Exciting news!*

Can I first just say this? I AM LOVING LIFE TO THE ABSOLUTE FULLEST!!!!!

Sometimes I go a week without blogging and other times you're lucky enough to get two blogs in one day from me! Today is one of those days because I had a simply FANTASTIC workout that I need to share with you!!!! I managed to not post this on Facebook despite my immense excitement because I wanted to share such exciting news for my #1 social network love: My Blog!

I RAN MY FIRST 5K!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

3.1 miles!!!!! I, Krystle Bailey, ran 3.1 miles!!!! And I did it in 36:10 minutes!! This is HUGE. I have walked a bazillion 5Ks and they usually take me about an hour to complete but not this time. I RAN. Before today my furthest had been a mile (Read about my very recent first mile here!!) . So today when I got to the gym, all the crossramps were taken so I hopped on the treadmill. Thankfully I wore my running shoes despite having no plans to run! Open treadmill. In need of a sweat. What the hell, RUN GIRL RUN!

I decided I would shoot for a 5K just to see how long it would take me and had no intentions of running more than one mile of it. HA! Why do I doubt myself??? *insert mischievous laugh*

I ran and I ran....then I walked a minute...and I ran and I ran and I took my pace down from 6.1 to 5.5 and I walked a minute....and I kept on running!! I was able to maintain the steady pace of 5.5 for most of the remaining 2 miles and I finished it in 36 minutes and 10 seconds. I was/am so super duper proud!!!! Overall, I walked for my 5 minute warmup (.3 miles) and I took four 1-minute breaks. The rest: I RAN.

With that being said, I am going to sign up for a few 5Ks this summer!!!! Can't wait to keep setting new goals and reaching for them!!! Starting with the St. Patty's Day 5K race. :)

I AM A RUNNER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I never thought I would say that but it's true, I AM!

Then I went and kicked some major ass on the free weights. I mean major. The meatheads in the gym were watching me workout aka watching the gun show. buahahhaha.

Onto other exciting stuff:

  • My incredible friend Nicole, who also happens to be a Weight Watchers leader in NY, is hosting an online community specialty meeting March 25th and asked YOURS TRULY to be a guest speaker!!!! How exciting is that? She said she is making fliers up with my name on them and everything. Very very cool stuff.
  • I work a WW meeting Wednesday night, Thursday morning, and train at my center Thursday night. Putting me to WORK and I am loving it!!!!!! It's not work when it's a passion.
  • I need heavier dumb bells. I'm getting too STRONG!!!!! And that is freakin' awesome!!!!!
Check out my guns: The top photo is January of this year and the bottom is today. The color difference is because of the flash:

Nothing better than that feeling of being on the treadmill, and thinking "wow I can KEEP running" - fab work!

Would you mind doing a post at some stage on what kind of free weights work you do? I'd really love that!
