Making Headlines

For the past few weeks, every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, we have been meeting at the track on post to walk.  This group is the same group originally started months ago as a circuit group led by K-Lo {she's seriously awesome}.  But she's been SO busy the past few weeks and hasn't been able to come {she's not slacking though, the girl still works out TWICE a day}.  The weather is MUCH warmer now {today we should hit 90°+} so we decided to start meeting at the track on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays!  I put together some awesome running workouts but I realized that more people were interested in walking.  So the workouts I've been putting together are mainly walking workouts with different body weight moves {lunges, high knees...} alternated with walking every 100M.  Occasionally I will have jogging or running sections too. Then at the end we do a bonus round of legs, core or arms.  It takes us about 1.5-2 hours to get through everything since we have a bunch of kids with us!  But we get a good workout and everyone can work at THEIR level and still get a good workout!

We have had more and more people coming!!  Today we had the most show up at the track.  There were 7 of us!  It is seriously so great to have friends to work out with and I KNOW that you all can find a group of friends to workout with!!  It is so good physically and socially!!  Take the initiative and be the one to coordinate a group, don't wait for someone else to do it!!

Today I was approached by Jena Goldberg.  She is a columnist for The Guidon, the newspaper here on post.  She is working on an article about working out as a group and motivation.  She is going to come to our next session {Wednesday} and take pictures and talk to us about our little workout group!!  I am SO excited!  I am REALLY hoping that we can get ALL of us there!!!  Seriously!  How COOL is this?!!!  HERE is a link for one of her previous articles.

I have to give kudos to EVERYONE in our group.  This is not put on by just one person!  We have all taken turns putting workouts together.  We all motivate and push each other.  I am so excited to be part of a group like this.  Some of my dearest friendships have developed through miles of walking/running with amazing women.  This is no exception.  I have made some GREAT friends here and I am loving our workouts together!
