Son Of A Bridge

bridge run Son Of A Bridge

by Kelly Milgie:

For those of you who read my last blog post, you may remember I have been training for my first 10K.  I ran the Cooper River Bridge Run 10K on March 31 and am proud to say I survived!  Though the day did not go as smoothly as I had hoped, after 01:06:40 and I crossed the finish line!

When my alarm went off at 4:30 that morning, I woke up excited and ready to go.  I had invested much of my free time training and the day had finally come. H3 @ Home Wellness Coach Amy Kelderhouse spent much of the morning reminding me to stay hydrated, eat breakfast and stretch.  It was about a half hour commute from where we were staying in Charleston to where the race began inMt.Pleasant. When entering Mt.Pleasant, I found out this race had 43,000 participants (a bit of information that Allison and Amy forgot to mention when they encouraged me to sign up for the race). They also failed to mention that we would begin running in waves.  The scheduled start time was 8:00 AM so around 6:30 AM Amy went up front to her wave and Allison and I got in line with our group.  I would be lying if I said I wasn’t nervous, but Allison did a great job distracting me until it was almost time to start. 

8:00 AM came and went and no one had begun running.  Next thing we knew it was after 8:30, and though there were announcements and music, no one filled us in on what was going on.  Long story short, my wave did not begin running until 9:30. By this time, I was hungry and a little discouraged but still excited to finally begin. 

The first mile was very smooth, taking Allison and I 09:40…. And then we hit the bridge, which to my disbelief was one mile uphill!  I had spent a decent amount of time training on the bridge here on Hilton Head, but it definitely did not prepare me for this! Another challenge I encountered was having to speed up to go around the people who stopped to walk or were jogging at a slower pace than I was (this is challenging for me to do in general, but running up hill made it even more difficult). To top it off, it was a rather windy day and we were of course running against the wind! Finally, we made it to the top of the never ending hill and I felt a bit of relief.  The rest of the race was spent trying to weave around the walkers and enjoying the entertainment that was taking place along the route.

When we finally crossed the finish line I had mixed emotions.  Though I did not have a specific time goal, I was hoping to be close to 60:00 and going over by 6 minutes was a little discouraging.  Then I allowed myself to realize that I just did something I had never done before and that is something to be proud of! Not only did I complete at 10K (without stopping to walk), one mile of it was up hill and the entire 6.2 miles were spent weaving around other participants.  I am pretty sure this was the hardest thing I have ever physically done but also one of the best things I have ever done.

After writing my last post, H3 Alum Lyle Orr commented that Amy and Jeff would have me running a ½ marathon before I knew it… Well Lyle, you were right – I plan to run the Disney ½ marathon in November – training begins soon!

10 Tips for Making the Most of Your Gym Time

Workout 10 Tips for Making the Most of Your Gym Time
Spring is right around the corner and for many people work is picking up, holidays are on the horizon and time to make it to the gym can be more challenging to find. Remember it is not all or nothing! Here are 10 tips for getting the most from your work out when we are pressed for time:

  1. Pack your gym bag the night before. Have everything ready to go in morning or right from work. Keep it organized so that finding those head phones and socks don’t require turning the bag inside out!
  2. Turn off your cell phone or leave it in your car. You gym time is YOUR time; don’t worry about responding to emails or calls.
  3. Have your plan in place; know what your workout is going to look like. This can save time by going right to the machines you want to work with.
  4. Don’t go to the gym during peak fitness hours. Find out the slower hours at your gym and try to make it during those times. This cuts back on the time you spend waiting for a machine or moving around other exercisers.
  5. Go to a circuit class such as ULTRA circuit or a bootcamp at your gym. For a 1 hour investment, you can get a full body strength routine in and cardio all at once! Talk about making the most of your time!
  6. Use that talk test. Invest in a more intense workout and cut back on workout time. Increase the intensity of your work out by increasing the speed/resistance/incline so that you are able to “chat” with the person next to you but talking is a challenge.
  7. Combine exercises. Use this method when lifting weights, by combining more than one strength exercise you get 2 for 1 and are done in half the time! Check out a few ideas here.
  8. Work out on your lunch break. The gym has a light crowd, it will give you more energy in afternoon and bonus you can sleep in and go right home after work. Awesome!!
  9. Increase intensity and decrease workout time. Try using the principles from high-intensity interval training or the tabata method to get the most from your time. You can read more about it here. Here is a video of a great 15 min workout you can do and be done with your day!
  10. Cut out the time commuting and work out at home! There are so many great exercises you can do without equipment. Check out a few options of simple body weight exercises here!

Try out a few of these and know that you can make the most of whatever time you have available. Every minute is bringing you closer to achieving your goals and is a true investment in your health and future. Let’s make it a priority!

 

 

Friday Fitness: It’s Never Too Late To Get Back In The Game

Hat tip to our avid reader Katha Kissman for finding this one!  Watch the vid and then read the commentary below.

Sure the point of the video was to show how exercise helps aging adults avoid disease.  But, we already knew that!  I think there was a more important lesson.  The Tigerettes aren’t exercising, they are PLAYING!  Exercise to me means drab elastic sweatpants, monotonous treadmill training and physical torture generally endured under solitary confinement.  Let’s spend some time this upcoming weekend playing.  Find a lonesome friend or loved one and kick, throw or shoot a ball.  Hell, who needs a ball, you can tag, race, swim, jump or crawl to a calorie burn.  But for God’s sake, stop sensationalizing exercise and start playing!
