Day 6: Keep it Light but Keep Pushing!

slow progress better than no progress

Hey Crew! It’s 3am and I am getting ready to head out to meet up with some friends to run our Virtual Race and Make it Count for Runwell. 13.1 miles coming up in beautiful Jekyll Island, GA! Pics to come with bibs and medals. 🙂

It is leg day…but since we are so close to the weekend with lots of long training runs and races coming up…I want our Friday leg days to be light and easy. I still want you to take Friday’s seriously and work your legs…just no extras or bonus. We don’t want over tired, sore legs going into long, tough training runs or races.

Even though we are keeping it light and easy…we are still making progress and getting stronger. Remember that slow progress is better than no progress! Think clean eating and lots of stretching to get ready for the weekend!

Day 6 exercises:

  • Pistol Squats – 2 sets of 3 (each side)
  • Fire Hydrants and Donkey Kicks – 2 sets of 10
  • Squats – Your Choice – 2 sets of 10
  • Plank – 1 Minute (2X)
  • Side Planks – :30 (each side)
  • 20 Push Ups
  • Stretch!

How is everyone doing with the “No Extra Sugar” Challenge so far this month? So far,  I’ve had no extra sweets. I’ve skipped the chocolate, peanut butter ice cream that’s in my freezer and avoided foods high in sugar…what are you doing to cut out the extra sugar?

This should be a pretty quick workout today. If you want to run…go for it…but keep it short and keep it easy….then come home and stretch or go through our Yoga for Runners again.

See you all on the other side of 13.1 for Runwell! Hope everyone has a fabulous Friday! 🙂
