Week 4: Finish strong!

Well, here we are! We made it to week 4! I hope you all have exceeded your weekly goals, and found strength within you to do better everytime you hit the pavement. So, what is your last goal for the month?

While I want to keep it reasonable, because I know slow increases are important, I am going to suggest a less modest final goal as well.

(Whether you choose to attempt the goal that seems slightly more attainable or something to push you a bit harder, you’re doing great and will continue to do well. Don’t be ashamed, running is hard!)

Week 4 Goal: three 1.5 mile runs, two 2 mile runs;
less modest
: three 1.5 mile runs, one 2 mile run, AND one 3 mile run!

When Your Running Legs Don’t Want To Run

On my run this morning, I was reminded of an all too familiar feeling: tired legs. Although my mind and heart were in it to win it, the ol’ legs were not having it.

When I realized I was going to run out my 5 miles as planned, I started thinking how I would actually get this completed.

You, my lovely readers, I’m sure experience this same situation some days. How you get through it, I’m not sure. However, if the case is that you in fact, DON’T get through it, and choose to stop, IĀ  have some suggestions for next time sleepy leg syndrome comes creeping into your run. Continue reading

Sign up for a race

One of my readers reminded me that a great way to keep yourself working hard is to sign up for a race. Even if it’s a 5k, it’s worth doing. When you set a personal goal, it’s easy to forget about it. A race, however, is set in stone and once it’s paid for, you are in it to win it whether you want to be or not!

Check out these websites to find your next race! Continue reading

Here it comes…. Week 3!

Hey all, so I don’t have much time at the very moment to talk a whole lot, but I know I’m late in getting week 3’s goal out to you!

Week 3 goal: 2 days of 2 miles, and 2 days of 1.5 miles!

I hope you atleast reached one 2 mile run last week, because this week you have two! I know you can do it! Once your body gets into the rhythm it just starts to work like clockwork!

Happy running, I’ll be back tomorrow with more!

PS If you missed it, check out the post Food to Fuel a Fit Figure. Nothing better than getting your day started with the right breakfast!

And always remember…
