If you are new in the neighborhood (hi!) and if not you know the deal. I will be sharing my training weekly because I love reading about how others train and by writing this down it helps to keep me accountable. I announced my full race calendar for 2016 here, so be sure to check that out.
I am between races right now since the Knoxville Half Marathon was a couple weeks ago, but I still have a couple weeks until the Tinker Bell Half Marathon. My goal for last week was to get the miles in since I didn’t run much the week before and continue my strength training. I can tell that my body has felt better since I added additional strength workouts even if my paces aren’t necessarily showing it yet. I know it’s just a matter of time before everything gets in sync. Stronger body = stronger running.
Also, currently I am Tone It Up obsessed! #sorrynotsorry
Last week was successful. I hit my goals for the week and even managed to check off some of the monthly fitness goals that I set for April. I was pleased with my performance and finished the week needing a break. That’s a great feeling because that means that I really pushed even when I didn’t want to because I was tired from the workout before. There’s a fine line, but I’ve been doing better about recovering properly too.
