Hotter ‘n Hell 5K & BBBC Updates!

Good morning! How’s your weekend going? Hope your weather is as fabulous as ours is! After a week of rainy days, we are having an amazing weekend. And my yard finally got mowed yesterday. It looks incredible!

Time for my Hotter ‘n Hell 5K recap and an update on Tina’s Best Body Bootcamp!

Let’s start with the Hotter ‘n Hell 5K update! Yesterday was actually a BEAUTIFUL day in Knoxville. Temps were BELOW average and nowhere near close to the highest temps we have had this summer. This year the race changed location and was held at Victor Ashe Park. I have to admit I had never been there before and it was gorgeous. What a fun park. I want to go back sometime when we have time to explore. Great for walking, running, biking. They have a dog park. Frisbee golf. A little of everything. Here is one of the few pictures I took:

Here I am before the race:

Sadly, I wish my legs had felt as great as the rest of my body felt. Five minutes into the race I knew it was going to be a tough one. I had great workouts early in the week and a rest day on Friday, but my legs did not want to cooperate at the race. Truly I was just thankful to finish. This happens to my calves every now and then. I lost feeling in my left foot/calf. So frustrating. Especially when I know I have the cardio capacity to go faster. I will just keep trying. The important part is I tried and I finished. Sometimes that is enough.

Let’s talk about my workouts for the week for Tina’s Best Body Bootcamp!

Monday – full body workout (minus the circuit intervals) + plank
Tuesday – walking
Wednesday – full body workout + circuit intervals + plank
Thursday – walking
Friday – rest day
Saturday – 5K + tons of housework (wound up walking 6.5 miles and 25 flights of stairs yesterday)
Sunday (today) – rest day (maybe a little biking but we will see)

I felt I had a great week of workouts, just wish my legs had felt better during the 5K. I am looking forward to another great week of bootcamp. No 5Ks for me this week. I am going to concentrate on strength training and intervals.

What’s on your workout schedule for the week?

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  1. Congrats on your 5k. It’s very frustrating when our bodies don’t cooperate and it can be hard to listen to them sometimes. Looks like you had a good week on bootacamp, too. Keep it up!

  2. Congrats on finishing the race! You rock!

    And it looks like you had a great week of workouts. I’m loving the bootcamp and really have found that the strength training/weights is making a difference.

    Have a great week!
