I have to say, I forgot how much I liked having a plan. I knew what I was doing each day for this week, I didn't even have to switch any days around. Here is the breakdown.
Monday - Stretch and strengthen
Tuesday - 3 mile run
Wednesday - It called for 30 minutes cross training. I had PT and worked with her for a bit and then just did more strength training.
Thursday - 2 mile run which I did at the gym. I questioned whether or not I should of gone for 3, but decided to trust the plan and just add a little speed work.
Friday - Rest
Saturday - 3 miles. which is considered my long run for this week. I was happy to be able to run with Elaine for this one. We had to push the girls, which is approximately 70 extra pounds, but it was so worth it!
Sunday - The plan calls for cross training. Sunday's are tough for me, so I woke up early and did a yoga class from On Demand on Fios. Not as good as the Yoga for Runners class that I love, but it was good enough to finish up the week.
I say pretty good week, yeah!
Now, on to a giveaway!
You all know I am now a Shubeez Affiliate and couldn't be happier. I fell in love with this company as soon as I started reading about them. Honestly, I can't say it any better than they did, and trust me, I sat here and tried to put it in my own words. Just go here and see for yourself. My favorite part is, "Your shubeez is a constant reminder of why you lace-up and a unique symbol that will spark interest/encourage others to get involved." Beautiful, right?
|Me and my Shubeez!|
Right now you can order a 13.1, 26.2 and pink ribbon for cancer but others are being developed as I type!
One of the cool things about being an affiliate, is I get to spread the word by just someone asking what is on my shoe. It is a great way to start a conversation, and it also motivates me to do more and help where I can. It can be for charity or just helping someone lace up for the first time. It is why I continue to do what I do.
I have a 13.1 shubeez that I would love to give to someone. I am very excited to be able to do this giveaway. I waited for a few weeks but now I feel it is the right time. I am in training, loving it, have a goal of 26.2, and support and love of so many people, including my fellow shubeez affiliates.
So here we go! I finally added rafflecopter to my site as I hope to have a few more giveaways in the future. It is pretty easy to enter. Not all the entries are mandatory, so don't worry if for instance, you don't have a twitter account. You can enter at the bottom of this post.
If it is a 26.2 or a pink ribbon that you really want, then head on over to Shubeez. You can easily order one for yourself or as a gift. When you are checking out, there will be a drop down box with all the names of the affiliates. I hope you will click on Running While Mommy to show your support.
I wish you all good luck!
