Well, hello there. Yes, I have two posts for y’all on this blustery Sunday. Did you catch this mornings Check-IIN all about cravings?
So, I am running a 10K
race run 3 weeks from today! The race is completely flat and in the park where I run often – so I know what I’m getting myself into – but I am a bit apprehensive because I haven’t been running much distance. Obviously, I am not seriously training for this event if I’m just now realizing it’s less than 21 days away; but, I’d like to have a strong, pain-free run.
The Game Plan >>
- Run at least 3x/week
- Get in a few 5-6 mile runs
- Buy new running shoes!
Unfortunately, I don’t have regular access to a treadmill; otherwise, I’d definitely be adding in some interval and hill training.
Workouts | Week of July 14
This week wasn’t as full of fitness as last week’s six strong days, but it felt right nonetheless. I didn’t plan to take two rest days smack dab in the middle of the week, but socializing with friends in the evenings reigned supreme… and I think my body is better from the time off.

Tuesday – (2x) Dumbbell Chipper (15/10lb.) + 10 min. run + 5 min. dumbbell ab workout from Women’s Health Magazine
