Happy Tuesday! It’s time for another edition of Tuesday Topics. This week’s Tuesday Topic: Show us your year in bling! You can write about this, or any other running topic. Remember to link-up with Kim and Zenaida and the bottom of this post.
Sooo….how do you write about your year in bling when you didn’t run any races? Although I don’t have any traditional race medals, I do have Orangetheory Fitness goodies to share! I’ll basically torture myself all for items that I don’t really need, like shirts and water bottles. Honestly, it’s more about the bragging rights!
I love the DriTri because it’s a great test of your endurance. I also hate the DriTri for the same reason, lol. It’s offered twice a year and luckily every time I’ve done it outside we have had beautiful weather! The DriTri consists of a 2,000 meter row, 300 bodyweight exercises (including lots of burpees) and a 3.1 mile run. In March we got really cool towels and a water bottle and in September we got an insulated water bottle.
Ahh the dreaded Hell Week. This is a week that truly lives up to it’s name. These workouts are brutal and often have me saying WTF at least twice during class. If you complete 5 of 8 classes, you get a shirt (either tank or short sleeve). This year’s shirt also glows in the dark!
12 Days of Fitmas
The best way to describe 12 Days of Fitmas is to take Hell Week and dress it up in a Santa costume, lol. The workouts are pretty rough, especially as the days go on. For example, on December 10 we had a 10 minute row block and on December 11 we had 11 minutes straight of bodyweight exercises. You have to complete 7 classes in 12 days and the reward is an awesome beanie. OTF didn’t do 12 Days of Fitmas last year, so it was nice to have it back again this year. I love this beanie and can’t wait to wear it, especially on outdoor runs 🙂
Tell me: Do you have a favorite medal from this year?
