Kick Your Trash and TREATS!

So the workout for today was a bootcamp style workout.  I have been writing these workouts up for about 2 1/2 years for some close friends and I.  They have become known as KYT, or kick your trash.  And that is exactly what it was today, it was EXTREMELY hard.  This workout is a total body workout with high intensity moves.  We do two .25 mile sprints, anywhere from 60-100 push-ups (there are so many different varieties of push-ups and I think we have tried them all), TONS of squats, lunges and plyometrics.  This is my fav-o-rite workout of the week.  There's nothing like kicking your own trash on a weekly basis.  After the KYT, I enjoyed a great spin class and then went and ran just under 3 miles, yep I ran out of time again :(  I hope to have a Bootcamp of my own one day, I love coming up with challenging workouts and watching people suffer through them...myself included! 

My little friend Tamitha, aka Tammy, brought me some goodies for my trip to Florida.  She got all of my favorites and no I will NOT share with the family ;)
Tammy is one of those friends that everyone should have, she is so thoughtful and thinks to do nice things for me and my kids all of the time.  The day I went to take my NASM certification test she decorated my door, she has decorated the door for birthdays and my kids gymnastics meets.  I wish I could be a more thoughtful person.  Jake got this idea from Tammy and was so sweet to decorate our door for my first marathon.  It made me feel so good as I was leaving the house at 3:30 am to see that he cared enough to do this for me.

The day of my first marathon was the best day EVER!  I loved every second of that run and I have a pic here to show you just how happy I was :)
 I had a huge smile in every picture taken of me that day.  I LOVED it and can't wait to do it again.  I am hopefully doing the Utah Valley Marathon again on June 11th and I can't wait.  That little gal beside me in the above picture is Holly and she is one of those thoughtful gals too.  She gave me a big basket of running goodies, including stuff to give myself a manicure.  Let's be honest running takes a toll on our toesies.

What is your favorite race distance?

I loved, loved, loved the marathon.  I know I am crazy but when I crossed that finish line I really felt like I had accomplished something great.

What is your favorite body part to workout?

I love the total body workout and legs is my next favorite.  I guess I like a challenge :)


  1. I love little suprises from friends and it looks like you have some great ones. :) You better be running UV marathon girl, are you signed up?

    My favorite race distance is 10k. I like to run fast and suck at pacing myself for distance.

    Favorite body part to workout is triceps.

  2. Jake is the best. Oh, I LOVE TAMMY...what a sweetie. You are going to have so much fun in Florida! LOVE the race photo!! I need to join the KYT TEAM ASAP!!
