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.
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.
