Life Lately and a Few Blog Tips for Newbies
On week two the second round of a 21 day program called The Shift Shop! This week the workouts are intensified to 45 minutes alternating cardio and strength training. Core work is also incorporated in! (SO important for runners to keep and/or build a strong core!) I do love the workouts and have been somewhat following the eating plan too! Cutting out processed foods and actually eating MORE than I usually do! Last night I was EXHAUSTED though and same thing this morning. The LAST thing I felt like doing was rushing out of bed at 5 am to get my workout done outside…and then getting ready and RUSHING off to work! So you know what? I pushed snooze. Got up still PLENTY early for work and drank coffee, had breakfast and read some personal development. I need to reset my body and soul this weekend. TGIF!
