Days 9 & 10: Only One Option…Get It Done!

Long run - finish what you startedIt’s the weekend!!!! We’re runners…and what do runners do on the weekend? We RUN!

Time to set a plan…then stick with it…because anything less is NOT an option.

Whatever you set your mind to do this weekend is what you will complete. If you fail to make a plan…you will fail to move closer to your goals. Maybe your racing, or adding a couple extra miles to start adding distance, or getting in a nice long training run…whatever your goal is…figure out how to make it happen then GET IT DONE!

Run Saturday…then knock out your ab work on Sunday…or get your abs done on Saturday and run on Sunday. But no matter what….everyone should be running this weekend!

Don’t judge yourself by what others are doing. Don’t Feel bad because you aren’t logging the long miles…yet. You will get there. It takes time and determination and commitment…but if you put in the work, it will be you logging those long miles…and feeling FABULOUS!!!

Day 9 exercises: Long Run + Planks (:30 – 1 min 2X) + 7 Key Stretches for Runners

Day 10 exercises: Abs

  • 50 Jumping Jacks
  • Stability Ball Crunch – 3 sets of 10
  • Lying Leg Raise – 3 sets of 10
  • Dumbbell Side Bend – 3 sets of 10
  • Plank – :30 – 1 min (2X)
  • 50 Crunches

If you don’t have a stability ball…try some in and outs. This is a great core exercise and doesn’t require any equipment. Find a bench or a sturdy chair and pull your legs in and out using your core muscles. See how to do it below.

No bonus stuff this weekend but please remember to take time to stretch! Ab stretches are below and you can find out 7 Key Stretches for Runners here.

Another thing…just because you do a long run one day doesn’t mean you can’t run again the next day. If you decide to go out for a 2nd weekend run…keep it short (30-45 min) and keep it slow. This should be a recovery run…or a shake out run if it’s the day before  long run.

No matter what you do this weekend….be active…be mindful of your food intake and make it a fantastic weekend Core Crew! 🙂
