Workouts … last week today – April 17

I’ve started to taper down a bit for my upcoming half marathons.  Run Like A Diva is in 7 days! I have kept up with planks for the week, but have taken out the HIIT until I get across the finish line.  The beauty (to me) of the 12 Minute Athlete app is that you get a different workout each…

Workouts … last week today – April 3

Continuing my training for my upcoming half marathons.  Still doing the 30 day Plank challenge.  Even though I am dividing up the overall time on the planks, I feel like I holding them with more control and strength. I am letting go of feeling defeated by splitting up the time. This is how my week lined out… Sunday – Steady…

Workouts … last week today – March 20

I’m joining the Weekly Wrap link up hosted by Holly at HoHoRuns and Tricia at MissSippiPiddlin. I’m continuing to add HIIT from 12 minute athlete and Planks to my routine, and it is going well.  My legs/arms aren’t as sore from using the different muscles that I’m not used to. This is how my week lined out…     Sunday – Rest Monday – 6 miles slow (average pace 11:03) & 1…

Workouts … last week today – March 13

I’m joining the Weekly Wrap link up hosted by Holly at HoHoRuns and Tricia at MissSippiPiddlin. As mentioned on last week’s post, I have decided to add HIIT training and planks to my workout routine.  The HIIT workouts were tough, and I was sore from them for a few days, but it was a good kind of sore.       Sunday – Rest Monday – 4…

Mixing it up…

Since I have began running (almost a year ago), I have not consistently incorporated any type of other exercise in my routine other than running.  Bad, I know. With my first half marathon out of the way, I have decided to mix in some strengthening into my mix.  First addition is the plank… it is a super great exercise that strengthens…

2015 Running Year in Review

In April I started out my training with the C25K app.  I finished in early June and signed up for a 5k. I started training with the Runkeeper app for the 5k and on August 1 I ran that 5k and really enjoyed it.  So much so, it got me to start thinking about what else can I do. I…

New Goal Race

I just signed up for my next race… and I’m super excited!  It is the Jail Break Half Marathon in Baytown, TX.  I had originally thought I would run the Rhythm & Blues Half, but I looked at the course and decided I would rather not do a double loop course and the Jail Break run was just one week…
