Let the 5K Training Fun Begin!
Yesterday I headed out for my run a little later than usual.
The moon was high and beautiful, but it was soooooooooooo HUMID out. I think I had steam rising from the top of my head by the end!
As many of you know, I am now officially in training to get a new 5K PR! With the weather already being so hot I’m kind of nervous, but I’m ready to give it all I’ve got!
Last night was just three easy miles, but at the end of the run my coach had me go through this set of post-run power exercises (includes videos of Lauren doing the exercises).
These five exercises are meant to improve leg/stride power and increase speed!
My first of five upcoming races will be on March 22nd, so just a few weeks away! I’ll be running the Kendra’s Kisses Memorial 5K.
I ran this race back in March of 2013, and I also ran a then-PR on this course last September. I don’t love the course but I do like that I am really familiar with it. I like knowing what I’m facing when I’m attempting a PR!
In other news, I finally did one small thing in the way of decorating.
I hung up this beautiful piece of art.
Adam and Cecil. That’s my little family! 🙂
^ Love that kid.
I’m going to sign off for now. I hope that your week is off to a great start!
What is one thing you really want to accomplish this week?
