Hey friends! We are edging ever closer to Friday! How’s your week treating you?
I am doing pretty well since getting over my Tuesday funk. I went to a nice, heart pumping Turbokick class last night, which always makes me happy.
We also had a little bit of rain last night, which in southern AZ, is a real treat. Dinner last night was kinda on the fly. We made the pesto out of the Whole30 book to use up some basil we had. I added the pesto to a sauté of shrimp, cherry tomatoes, swiss chard and carrot noodles (from Trader Joe’s) it was delicious, total comfort food flavors.
Today I thought I would share with you a little track workout I did over the weekend. I am not a really regular runner. So when I do run, I tend to stick mainly to shorter, 1-3 mile runs and like to incorporate strength exercises in to break up the actual running. The track closest to me is 1/4 mile (is that the standard track length?), so this worked out to a two-mile run, with breaks at each lap for lunges or push-ups. Feel free to adjust distance or repetitions to meet your needs.
Runner friends – any tricks for adding distance when running alone? I will run longer when I am with someone, but tend to take more breaks, or stop sooner when I am running on my own.
