Jillian Michaels DVD giveaway # 2

Time for the second part of my DVD giveaway.

This time the prize is a sealed copy of Jillian Michaels No More Trouble Zones

Just realized that is a blurry photos (sorry!) and I'm too lazy to go get my camera and take another one.

I have not tried this DVD so can't comment on how good it is, I purchased it without realizing it was region coded (only works on US DVD players) and I don't have a US DVD player - hence the giveaway.

All entries must be via the rafflecopter widget below.

Sorry only open to US residents as I have to pay for the postage myself.

Good luck everyone xxx

Disclaimer: I purchased the DVD's myself and am not being compensated for this post or giveaway in any way.

Diablo Trails 5k

Completed my 4th 5k of 2013 yesterday :)

I must confess I was not really looking forward to it as I hate hills, so I was thinking about this far too much prior to the race. Turns out it was nowhere near as bad as I was imagining. There were two steep parts at the beginning, but other than that the incline wasn't too noticeable.

This was my first actual trail run, so I wasn't sure what to expect. I've been on a few courses before that are mainly paved with a small amount of trail, but this was 100% trail, and we ran through four creeks (each one twice), they told us at the start just to run through and get wet then we wouldn't be bothered on the others. The first two we tiptoed across the rocks and stayed dry, but then we came to the third one...

and the only option was to go through and get wet, which was actually really refreshing, and the fourth one was even deeper. We soon got used to the creeks, although some rocks were slippy, so we walked rather than run through. The trails had lots of random rocks and tree trunks in the way and I saw a lot of people slip and trip, so I became extra cautious and only ran on the very flat parts.

I wasn't expecting to create any new PR's today, but still went faster than I expected considering I stopped to photograph, stopped at each creek and had the rocky steep parts of the trail.

I finished 3.25 miles in 59:21 with a 18'14" pace, so 1'44" slower than my fastest time.

Another medal for my super full medal rack, must look into purchasing a new rack at some point.
Next 5k is the Divas 5k on May 5
