Running through Summer

I don’t know about you, but I always have to switch things up to keep my fitness routine exciting.  If you don’t look forward to exercise, you won’t do it!

Last May (2015) I started my Beachbody fitness journey.  I did 21 day fix extreme, and over the subsequent year I completed a few rounds of extreme, body beast, hammer and chisel, and on demand challenge du jour.  It was last Sept/Oct. that I started waking up at 5am to get my workouts in and converted  part of my basement to a gym.  With warmer weather and the sun up so early, I can’t force myself to go downstairs so I have started running again!   I am considering registering for a half marathon (or 2) in the fall to keep myself on track.   I love sticking to a workout calendar/training plan.

Feels so good to get outside!


This morning I was doing an upper body workout downstairs and my daughter came down and said “mommy, its gorgeous out!  Why are you working out inside?”  Wise girl.  I will still utilize my “basement” gym because I have a new love for weight training, and it will only help my running performance… And sometimes we can’t leave the house.  I really don’t feel like running with 2 toddlers.


Questions for you:

Do you have any fall races lined up?  If so, what are they?

What is your favorite race distance?

Do you like running alone or with a running buddy?

I am thinking of creating a facebook group for people training for the same race… would you be interested in joining us?  The races on the table for me are the Philly Rock N Roll Half Marathon and the Brooklyn Rock n Roll Half Marathon.


You in?
