Weekly Report

It’s been a crazy week with New Years and getting back into the rhythm of my regular work schedule.

Today brought 8 hours of choreography work with it so I wore this to help motivate me:

IMG_2214I think it must have worked cause I got a lot done… not as much as my tired, coffee-deprived brain wanted but still a lot!

Here is my weekly workouts broken down:

Sunday – Rowing/Arms & Shoulders

Monday Run/Abs – 2.38 miles in 30 minutes

Tuesday – Rest Day – resting my legs for the race!

Wednesday – Fairfax Four Miler race recap

Thursday – Walk – Today marked the start of the 2,015 in 2015 challenge so I went for an easy 3 mile walk on the treadmill after a crazy night

Friday – Walk – since my ankle was bothering me I decided on a 6 mile walk

Saturday – Walk/Run – 3 mile walk in the morning and 3.1 mile run in the evening

All in all it was a cardio heavy week.  However I am a cool 15.1 miles into the January 171 mile goal, which is not too shabby.

Keep it fit & fierce!

How was your first week in the new year?

2,015 in 2015… I Might Be Crazy

Just as I was getting back from my easy run today I got a text from a friend challenging me to run 2,015 miles in 2015. The text included a link to Run the Edge and asked what I thought.

I looked through all of the information on the website and was reassured when I saw you could walk, run, or use a combination to reach the miles. According to the comments the jury is out on whether elliptical counts, so you have to decide for yourself. You also have to option to split the miles various ways as part of a team of 2 or 3.  This would be an awesome idea for friends, couples, family members, etc to help motivate each other to move more in the new year. One of my goals/resolutions for 2015 is to up my mileage game and this would certainly be motivation. So I sent this sucker back: challenge-accepted-2 I may have made a rash decision but this will be the equivalent for me this year of The Dopey Challenge (since I won’t be there in January) or an Ironman (since I don’t know how to ride a bike… yet.) Up to the challenge? Get all the information & sign up here! Keep it challenging & fierce! -Little Red What are your running goals for 2015?  Are you planning to take on this or a similar challenge to help motivate you?
