So, what am I doing now that the Pittsburgh Half Marathon is over?
Through the end of July, I am choosing to let (focusing) on running take a back seat. I’m in my second week of a program called ChaLEAN Extreme & I’m LOVING it so far! I am a Beachbody coach & I was excited to try one of their weight lifting programs. It is a 90 day program that is separated into 3 different phases; Burn, Push & Lean. Each phase has 3 circuits that you work through. My main goal for this 90 day program is to lean out a little.. I don’t necessarily want to lose any more lbs, but I would like to tone & tighten up in certain places! Also, I know how important strength training is – & I’m ready to get strong.
From now until the end of July, my schedule will look something like this:
Monday – Circuit 1 & night class
Tuesday – Speedwork w/ Pro Bike & Run
Wednesday – Circuit 2
Thursday – Ab workout
Friday – Circuit 3
Saturday – Long run w/ Pro Bike & Run
Sunday – Yoga
Busy schedule – every day I’m doing something – but I’m really looking forward to challenging myself in new ways. The hardest part will be keeping my nutrition on point. I am currently using the 21 day fix portion containers & eating an 80/20 “diet”. Rarely do I want to be eating anything processed. You can work out for hours & hours, but if your nutrition isn’t right, you won’t get the results you want. You can’t out exercise a bad diet.
I will finish this program just in time for fall training w/ Pro Bike & Run – & this year I’m *hoping* to be a mentor! Most people train for the EQT 10 miler during fall training season, but I will be looking towards the Buffalo Creek 1/2 Marathon – which is my goal race – looking to beat my current 2:37 PR!!
