To love life is to enjoy every manifestation of life, and it is effortless. It is as easy as inhaling and exhaling. To breath is the greatest need of the human body, and the air is the greatest gift.
So today the wod at one world was 200 m run 4 x's. I decided since I was running anyway not to do that WOD. I was heading out the door this morning when Rocky my dog bolted out the door and stood near my SUV. I thought, he's telling me he wants to go. So I thought why not, I can use him as part of my WOD too. Click on the picture to view.

We arrived at Mission peak trailhead where I saw my favorite ranger Neil. Chatted with him then headed up the trail with Rocky. I thought we'd do 10 min. run and a workout similar to yesterday. 50-40-30-20-10
(3 mile run)
Notice Rocky in the background? I would just sprint ahead and he would catch up during my exercise.

Todays WOD:
run 10 min. 50 squats with Rocky
run 10 min. 4.0 minute walk carying Rocky
run 10 min. 30 push-ups
run 10 min. 20 lunges carrying Rocky
run. 10 min. 10 burpess
Time:58 min.
total run 3 miles

So I guess there was no way to get Rocky up on your shoulders for the push ups? haha

thats awesome.I think I will use this as inspiration adn involve some of these on my 5 miler tomorrow.

So I started eating the Zone way and am finding it great. It was hard giving up potatos as sweet potatos was a main staple in my diet but I am finding giving up dark chocolate the hardest.I love LOVE dark chocolate liek 60% is my fav....awwww I am sure it will get easier.

OMG. This is awesome. If I try that with my lab, I'd break my back. He's 105 lbs of squirminess.

I'm so gonna try to Catra Chaos tomorrow at the gym! Thanks for the workout.

I'm always checking out your blog, and I wanted to get some info as to what foods you take in during your 100 milers. I'm vegan too, and I didn't have much luck at my last 100. I thought I could eat off stuff on the course and carry gus, but it didn't work. Thanks in advance!
