Attention LLEG readers I have some news that will make even the worst Monday better. Right now Victoria’s Secret is doing the most incredible promotion to help us all stick to those new years resolutions. Until the 20th (or supplies last) if you buy a VSX sports bra at regular price you receive a FREE pair of VSX workout pants. FREE!! I’m rocking this sports bra and these awesome pants (the color I got is sold out). Being the skeptic I am I immediately though their exercise line must not be great if they’re giving it away for free but I’ve already done hot yoga and ran 10 miles in these pants and they’re wonderful. GO! And hurry so much of the VSX Sport line is sold out online already.
Now, back to my weekly workouts. This week is an exciting workout week for me because it is officially the week before my first half marathon of 2016. I’ll be doing the Carlsbad Half Marathon on Sunday the 17th with my mom as usual but this isn’t just another half marathon though. It’s very special because my boyfriend, Bryce, is also running this race and it will be his very first half marathon EVER! I watched him go from hardly being able to run a mile to now kicking my butt in training runs. He’s put in so much hard work and I’m thrilled to run this race by his side.
People keep asking me if I’m ready for Carlsbad and the answer is NO! I honestly never quite got a running routine down after the time change (terrible excuse I know). I’ve only been running once a week at a very slow 10 minute mile pace…oops. I’m hoping all the cross training I’ve been doing with the Bikini Body Guide and just the excitement of race day will carry me through this one.
My goal for this one is to be sure Bryce finishes and that I finish under 2:00:00 again. PLEASE!
Before I get into my Weekly Workout schedule I just have to share a few pictures from my final training run yesterday. We always run at Los Penasquitos Canyon and showed at 8am to find THIS:
I knew it had rained a lot last week but WOW! We found another trail which turned out to be spectacular but this whole run was spent dodging mud and puddles- definitely wasn’t boring! And as a pleasant surprise the waterfall at about mile 3 was flowing…kind of!
After 10 miles we were dead and our shoes had to have weighed 20 lbs each caked in mud. Gotta love trail running.
- Monday: BBG arms + LISS cardio (35 min walk at lunch)
- Tuesday: Yoga + LISS cardio (35 min walk at lunch)
- Wednesday: Yoga + 3 mile shakeout run (LISS cardio)
- Thursday: BBG abs
- Friday: 4 mile shakeout run (LISS cardio)
- Saturday: Yoga or nothing
- Sunday: Carlsbad Half Marathon!
So sticking to the BBG plan for week 10 isn’t going to be perfect, but hey you have to modify sometimes.
Now I’m off to attack this work week- Happy working out everyone.
