Running wise, I did much better this week. I might not have had the longer runs that I am used to, but I made sure to at least get out there for 5 out of 7 days and get some sort of run in! My runs have been feeling really great too, almost all of them were below 9 minute/mile pace. So, slowly but surely I am getting back to where I was at pre-marathon. Which couldn’t come at a better time, because next month I am amping up my runs and starting to train for my second marathon- The Disney World Marathon in January. I can’t wait to have a more set running & exercise plan. Lately, I have gotten ready to go for a run and kind of just decided right before I get to the park on how far I think I should go. It’s been nice to be a little more laid back when it comes to my runs, but I really am a person that does better (with anything) when I have a concrete plan put in place.
Tonight, I am really excited to start my first TRX fitness class. My bootcamp instructor told me about it last week because she also is the teacher for TRX, and she said that I should check it out because it can be helpful for building endurance for runners. I really didn’t know much about it before she told me, so when I got back from my bootcamp class I researched online a bit, and it looks like a really fun workout. Has anyone tried it before? If so, please give some tips in the comments section for this newbie! 🙂
I hope everyone has an awesome week. And, don’t forget to sign up for the Armpocket Giveaway! The contest ends on Friday!
