Hello :) Hard to believe the end of May is nearly hours away! This month flew by, didn’t it? I don’t mind though because June is one of my favorite months of the year. And guess what, did you know that tomorrow is National Running Day!? A perfect way to kick off the month if you ask me.
Since today is Running Tuesday and all, I think it would be a good time to fill y’all in on my exercise plan for the upcoming month. I haven’t done an exercise challenge since the Holiday Hustle Challenge – nor do I have any races that I’m training for at the moment (I hope that changes soon!) – so I want to commit myself to something to shape-up/slim-down for summer.
Starting tomorrow, through the end of the month, my plan* each week is to:
run > 20 miles
cycle > 2 x 1 hr. classes
yoga > 2 x 1 hr. classes
strength train: 60 minutes total (~2-3x)
*As my summer plans finally unveil themselves, it’s possible my fitness regimen may have to be adjusted.
I’ll be logging all my runs, rides, and deep breathing on DailyMile. In addition to plenty of cardio, stretching and strengthening, I’ll be eating a little bit less of more the same good eats.
Do you have any summer fitness goals?
My goal is to “regain” the physique that I had at NWM.

New shoes are my type of exercise motivation.
I’ve been shoe shopping since January, but I’m happy that I waited a few months (too long) for the release of the kiwi-colored 2160s.
The feeling of new soles to a seasoned runner is that of pure bliss. I’m excited to start a new relationship with Asics #7, and for all the strides
and stumbles that we take together. [For more silliness, see My Running Shoe Relationship.]
