I don't know about you, but this has been the longest week EVER.
Friday: 1.25 mile run
Sunday: FitStar Yoga
Monday: 1 mile run + FitStar Workout
Wednesday: 1 Mile Run + FitStar Workout
I usually hate paying for apps, especially ones that are on the pricey side or have a monthly fee but I AM SO HAPPY I signed up for FitStar (I have the free version of their yoga app for now, I'm undecided on upgrading but if I keep to a weekly schedule it might be worth it).
Admittedly I am horrible about doing any kind of strength training -- my workouts are mostly cardio but I also know that getting some strength training in is super important and I love how easy FitStar makes it. Especially when I work it into my running routine.
The "program" I'm on is supposed to be done 4x a week but I'm just doing it at my own pace, usually after my Monday and Wednesday morning runs, which are, for right now, on the short side while I work on building up speed and then I reserve Friday mornings for working more on endurance and building up distance.
(Ha, look at me, sounding like I know what I'm talking about LOL)
Also, I'm sure I've mentioned this before but if not: I've been asked to come back as a Cleveland Marathon Ambassador!
This is my third year representing the back of the pack for the city that I love and, as always, I'm so excited to be a returning Ambassador, especially for the 40th race!
Last weekend I was at my book signing (I so fancy) and the store employee asked when my last race was.
"Almost a year ago. LULZ."
Soooooo here's hoping another injury doesn't sideline me before the Cleveland 10K again this time around.
Love from the ashes,
