National Runnin’ Day

Well, hey!

Did you all know today was National Running Day? I was a little out of the loop and didn’t realize it until earlier today… but, nonetheless, I celebrated. I am the Nutrition Nut on the run after all.

After work, much of it being at the computer, I was itching to get my legs runnin’.

  • 30 minutes treadmill @ 1.0 incline – 3.3 miles
    • 4 min. @ 4.6 // 6 min. @ 7.6
    • 4 min. @ 4.8 // 6 min. @ 7.8
    • 4 min. @ 5.0 // 6 min. @ 8.0
  • 10 minutes StairMaster @ 130

and then… I spotted a sandbag on the floor. I thought the WREC had gotten rid of them, but apparently not. Swoon.

  • 5 burpees @ 50lb.
  • 10 high-pulls @ 50lb.
  • 15 squats @ 50lb.

repeat set… then 10 burpees to finish it off. 

& because it is was all about running today, I thought I’d round up a few of my favorite running-related blog posts from the archives (in no particular order).

If you haven’t already… you may check out My Running History and Training + Racing Page, too!

Did you celebrate National Running Day?

Why do you run?

    Ack, burpees!

    I sure did run – got my 12 miles in before class this morning. I’d forgotten it was National Running Day, but found it rather fitting considering how lovely my pre-class jaunt was :)

    Great workout! I sadly did not celebrate national running day yesterday : ( I’m still recovering from an injury, but I’m hoping to get back to it soon!

    I “celebrated” Running Day by receiving my compression sleeves in the mail! I didn’t actually run, though, since the day was a rest day in my half-marathon training, so my belated running-related celebration will be today :)

    I run to eat more cake. I love your running pictures…your legs are AWESOME!! Every “professional” shot taken of me, I look like a dying old woman. It’s scary.

      Good answer. I actually use to own a t-shirt that said “I run” (on the front) “to eat more chocolate cake” (on the back).

    What’s a sandbag??? I got a membership @ 24 Hour Fitness! They had a great deal w/ no initiation fees! And I got 4 sessions of personal training sessions! It was a great deal! I’ve got some great workouts! I hope you’re doing well!
