Well good morning!! Welcome to the first Fall Into Fitness Friday!! How has your week been going? Trucking along on your fitness goals? Have you tried any new recipes? Enjoyed anything very fall-like?
My week has been nice, I was pretty sleepy the past few days, so hitting the pavement has been a bit challenging. This morning my run was pretty phenomenal and I was so glad I went out before work.
One thing I have issues with morning workouts is being up before it’s light out. Instead of focusing on that this morning I focused on how I get to enjoy the sunrise. It was a great way to show how just a change in perspective can make a huge difference.
So far I’ve stayed on track for my runs. I did one on the treadmill and one outside, and I have to say, outside wins. I got SO BORED on the treadmill.
Exciting news!! I’ve decided to order the ChaLEAN Extreme workout program and participate in Kim and Kalee’s Hot by Halloween Challenge. If you ware interested in signing up, check out their site! I am looking forward for a fun little challenge to kick start my new strength training program and continue my half marathon training.
So, let’s keep the fun going into the weekend! I think that for the Fall Into Fitness series it would be fun to make some goals for the weekend to take it to the next level.
Here are mine (feel free to make your own or follow along!)
- Workout at least once. Weekends are super easy to get distracted for me, I don’t have a schedule or routine, so it’s easy to put off my workouts. Not any more! My goal is to get in one good run and some serious stretching.
- Try a new recipe/prep some meals for the week. I found some soup recipes in the cookbook Nourish, and I want to make some soup for lunches next week. By taking an hour or two to prep ingredients or even make ahead meals, you set yourself up for success. AND on an evening you don’t want to cook, you will most likely have something.
- Print out my training schedule. It dawned on me last night that I only have a little over four months until my half, and I am officially terrified. I want to make my calendar final, print it out, and put it up on the fridge. It will be a lot harder to ignore a workout that way.
How was your week of fall fitness? Do you have any fitness goals this weekend?
