Fastest time for 5km Trail Run

On Sunday a few of our neighbors, hubby and I did a 8 km walk to the next town to attend a 1st May festival.....The first photo is of our group walking to the Castle ruins.....the other two photo's are of other groups making their way to the festival....no cars in sight...was lovely.
Germany looks so beautiful at the moment....
Green with lots of yellow flowers.
Yesterday was a good training day for me....so today am taking it a little easy ~ going to be teaching a class this evening and thats going to be it...as Wednesday is going to be another Monday training wise.
Yesterday morning I did a 45 mins upper body Kettlebell workout....working on defining my triceps, biceps, and shoulders...
At 4pm I did a 5km Trail run with my one neighbor..we normally run it in 40 mins and yesterday was our fastest time of 32 mins....and the first 2.89km is all uphill....we did walk a little the first km...and still did a good time cause on the flats and downhills we moved really fast.
Then came home to prepare dinner and hour later I went out with hubby for a 7.37km run, the first 2km I felt tired....it always takes me 15 to 20 mins to get into a rhythm...at the end hubby sprinted and went a lot a head of me to the car...
So all in all...a good day....
My first day on 17 DD went well....ended off eating 1 300 calories...and with all the running and training I did yesterday....I had loads of energy!!
Now off to have my nails done...they looking like claws right now....


  1. Great day exercise wise. Are you telling me your hub runs 7K without regular training? Impressive.

    Sunday sounds like a really fun day to do that all together. Exercise combined with fun: the best there is.

    Have a great day!

  2. Great day for such great exercises :)
    I have to agree with you - these photos illustrates the beauty of your country. So green, wow!

  3. I really love the last picture. There is something about the hints of yellow in it. How fun to walk to an event with a bunch of friends! Glad to hear you are not overdoing it today. You deserve it!

  4. I just love, love, love the idea of the community walk to another town. Looks like you have some nice trails there for biking/running/walking.

    You had quite the active day yesterday. Nice!!

  5. You are doing so great!!! oh and great pics! Fun to run with the hubby!

    Germany IS beautiful right now and that looks a lot like places around here where i run... gorgeous.
