I’ve been slacking on real time running related posts this week because I haven’t been running!
After my long run on Sunday one of my feet was feeling a little achey. I suspect it was because I thought I could get just one more long run out of a pair of shoes I should have retired a couple of weeks ago.
The ache wasn’t very bad, but since I have my final 5K this weekend I decided to be overly cautious and take a couple of extra rest days.
After a few weeks of really wonderful running weather I am SO BUMMED to see that on Sunday it’s going to be warm for the 5K. I was hoping the weather for the race would be in the upper 50s or 60s.
I did finally get in a run TODAY and it felt really good to be reunited with my favorite activity after three non-running days in a row! 8 miles along the coast!
Since I’ve been slacking on running I have had time to focus on cross training – especially strength training!
Here’s an upper body workout I’m proud of:
This was a good workout but I need to increase weight on those bicep curls if I am ever going to impress anyone when I flex! haha
Finally I have to tell you some exciting news – I saved the best for last….
My coach is offering a 20% discount on all coaching services and training plans right now through the end of the year! To get the discount all you need to do is email her (firstname.lastname@example.org) and mention it!
You can see her normal pricing for services here (you would deduct 20% off of the prices you see there).
If you have any questions about what it’s like to work with Lauren shoot me an email :)!
Enjoy your Thursday!
Anyone else super excited to listen to the final Serial episode today?! (Yes, I have listened to all 11 episodes already even though I just started the podcast on Saturday!)
