May 23 & 24: Hey all you Coastal Spinners!!! I miss seeing all of you and yes I must admit, I miss making you sweat. I would rather be there than where I am now. Just as an update, my dad is being moved to a hospice facility tomorrow. The chemo didn’t work. I am here with my family, but in my time, know that I am worried about each and everyone of you… I check in all the time to make sure you are all getting your workouts and from what I hear, you are — and that makes me happy! Keep spinning, keep sweating and keep me motivated by keeping up with your workouts! Don’t lose focus and keep me updated with how your butts are getting kicked around! I miss you all !
Made me laugh so it was worth while!
May 17 thru May 21:
I guess exercise can come in all forms. I’ve been hanging out at hospitals a lot and walking the same route around the hospital to get back to the hotel. Funny how my mind equates exercise with sweating a lot, but my mom and sister were commenting about how much exercise they have been getting walking from the hospital to the hotel and back.
It dawned on me then exercise doesn’t always mean it has to be to the point of exhaustion and drenched in sweat…. So, I have concluded that I am in another taper…. Walking a lot.
But… I do have a feeling that first day back in the saddle will be a little hard.
I guess when life throws a curve ball like this, you just have to adjust but keep playing the game.
In this economy, we realize that it’s tough to keep training and paying for it. AND, we hold true to our beliefs that fitness should be fun and not cost a fortune. So we have come up with a solution that is sure to be a good fit for everyone. AND, we really want you to not only meet your fitness expectations but exceed them!
We are converting our training teams to our brand new Coastal Running Group designed for ALL LEVEL RUNNERS and you can join at any time. Whether you are training for your 100th Marathon or want to run your first Half…or maybe just want to get in great running shape, we have a program for you.
Being part of the Coastal Running Group keeps you motivated and holds you accountable to keep you on track. If you don’t have a running partner now, you will after you join our group. We are a social club for all level runners that makes it’s easy to hook up with someone who runs or run/walks at your pace. Michael Rouse is our lead run coach and has had numerous years of experience racing everything from 5K’s to marathons and also having co-created a race for local runners.
We have a training program for EVERYONE from beginners to seasoned runners. Regardless if your goal is to complete a marathon, run your first half marathon or run a 5k, we will personalize a training program just for you that will help you achieve any goal you may have…but most importantly, have FUN doing it!
It’s never too late to join!
The trainings start Wednesday June 6 and the cost for membership for the remainder of 2012 will be ONLY $110.00 with the break down it cost less than $2.00 a run. This does not cover the race entry fees to the various races. Run with not only our awesome lead run coach, but all the friends you will make in the group — and believe me you will form some pretty amazing relationships with your fellow runners.
The Coastal Running Group will offer 2 coached runs per week. We will offer various TEMPO RUNS on Wednesday and LONG RUNS on Saturday mornings.

I hope so…. but just in case it didn’t, I got on my Dad’s treadmill and took a 30 minute jaunt. Don’t know how long I will be in LA, but I will commit to getting something in everyday! It may not be SPIN, but hey I never said I would SPIN 365. BTW – it’s hotter than you know what here … uck!
May 15: SPIN and Body Sculpt in the morning. 8 week program in the afternoon. Body Sculpt rocked! Got on the STEP … Yes, that’s right the STEP. Don’t you remember the 80′s and 90′s?
Sign up in studio to complete a 5K, 10K, Half Marathon or Full Marathon Program.
All programs culminate in a race that is scheduled around San Diego County.
We have learned that not everyone wants to train for a Half – but that’s no excuse to leave you behind!
There are plenty of races that Coastal Running wants to be in and WE WANT YOU TO BE IN THEM WITH US!!!!
The 3x a Week Challenge
- To build healthy habits by starting out with a manageable commitment of 3x a week.
- To bring variety into your workouts/lifestyles/regimes by creating the opportunity to try something new.
- To participate in a group activity, which helps us stay accountable.
- Pick a healthy habit you’d like to try to build (spin class, cooking healthy meals, taking your vitamins, drinking water, cardio — whatever you need to work on or want to try).
- Commit to doing it 3x a week for one week. That’s it. If you pick something like underwater hula clogging class and it sucks — well, you’ve only committed to 3x a week. By the end of the 3rd class, you’ve given it a fair shake and can decide if you want to return or re-up for a different habit the next week.
- Share your commitment by leaving a comment on our Facebook page with your chosen healthy habit.
3x a week. Can you commit? Join us! (and don’t forget to keep us posted on your 3x a week – through Facebook!)
