Flexi-Bar and Xco Training

Right after my rainy run yesterday I grabbed some snacks and headed to a training session for work. It was held at another gym in our chain and I managed to not get lost – win.IMG 4956 800x600 thumb Flexi Bar and Xco Training

We are getting two new pieces of equipment – the Xco trainer, which is a very light weight with granules inside to help with range of motion and complimentary movements…IMG 4957 600x800 thumb Flexi Bar and Xco Training

And a Flexi-bar, which uses oscillation during static movements to challenge you.IMG 4961 800x600 thumb Flexi Bar and Xco Training

My preference is toward the Xco because the instructor said you can use them for running. Supposedly it helps perfect your running form. I’m skeptical, but really want to try it!

Plus, they are like exercise maracas which I love wlEmoticon smile21 Flexi Bar and Xco TrainingIMG 4965 600x800 thumb Flexi Bar and Xco Training

After training I was pretty hungry and stopped at Sprouts for a sandwich. Turkey on sweet prairie bread with all the veggies – including sprouts of course. I really think alfalfa sprouts make a sandwich taste healthier, no?IMG 4968 600x800 thumb Flexi Bar and Xco Training

I picked up a few treats from the bulk bins too. These dark chocolate covered cashews were HUGE.IMG 4976 800x600 thumb Flexi Bar and Xco Training

With my belly full I headed to my mom’s for a visit (and to raid her fridge).IMG 4972 600x800 thumb Flexi Bar and Xco Training

Did you know I tried Swedish Fish for the first time last week? I kinda love them.IMG 4985 800x600 thumb Flexi Bar and Xco Training

The rest of the day was a blur because I was exhausted. This Skinny Girl margarita didn’t help the situation.IMG 4993 600x800 thumb Flexi Bar and Xco Training

This morning I set out for a fast 3 miles. Look at this! I’m faster than Friday! Buuuuuut, I did take an easier route today.IMG 5003 800x600 thumb Flexi Bar and Xco Training

Friday’s 3 miler:IMG 4946 800x533 thumb1 Flexi Bar and Xco Training

Something happened that’s never happened on a run before – my hair fell out of the rubber band. Luckily, it was on my cool down mile and I just decided to walk it inIMG 5001 800x600 thumb Flexi Bar and Xco Training

When I got back I contemplated breakfast. I know what my dad is having…IMG 4982 600x800 thumb Flexi Bar and Xco Training

I’m not a menudo maker, I’m a pancake maker though…IMG 5007 800x600 thumb Flexi Bar and Xco Training

    I also tried swedish fish for the first time a few weeks ago but I thought they were a bit too chewy. I think I’ll stick with chocolate. (:

    Omg where did your dad get that shirt?! I need it for my boyfriend…he’s mexican and loves menudo! I tried it for the first time on Christmas and I couldn’t get over the texture or the fact I was eating stomach lining…thankfully his mom had a back up breakfast waiting for me :)

    I can’t believe this is your first Swedish Fish experience. I just introduced my mom to them, and I’m pretty sure it made me her favorite child.
    Also…the fiberful bars from trader joes are delish!
