Welcome to my weekly workout recap, today I’m recapping my workouts from last week today. There isn’t much to report this week.  With training for the Chicago marathon kicking off on the 19th, I opted to take it easy.  My legs are still feeling less than stellar (not sure why, thinking those dang burpees), and I need them to feel…

My next half marathon is coming up in 6 days!  This time around I’m not cutting back as much as I did before, since I felt that it was just way too much.  We’ll see how I feel for this one. Since my 30 day plank challenge ended, I’ve been very forgetful about including planking in my routine.  I did…
