This weeks runs/goals

Yesterday I decided to join in on 5 Miles Past Empty's Legs Love Lunges Challenge. The goal is to do lunges at least 3 days a week from August 10th-September 10th, but since I'm starting late I'll do it from August 16th-September 16th. I'll start with a few lunges and build my way up each week. I'm excited to see how it will help with my running.

Ok, so no legs could use some help.
I accept the challenge!

This week's runs/workouts are going to be like last week's:
Monday: Stretch + Strengthen
Tuesday: 4 m run
Wednesday: 2 m run or cross
Thursday: 4 m run + strength
Friday: 40 min cross
Saturday: 6 m run
Sunday: Rest

It seems pretty simple. I just need to continue to get out there early in the mornings and get it done. I'm still not 100% sure what I'm doing with the whole strength part of it, but I'll figure it out. And for the cross training part I've been thinking of either walking, swimming, or doing the elliptical. I'm sure it will end up being walking, but we'll see.

I feel good about this week. I think it will go well. Oh! I forgot. Tomorrow is my first doctors appointment for this pregnancy. Let's hope he's a pro-running doctor and every thing's good to go with the kiddo.

I hope everyone has a great week this week!!

Great plan.

And if your doctor doesn't like you to run, ask how high your heart beat should be... and wear a heart rate monitor. My sister did and had no problems.

You're doing great! He'll be so impressed with how healthy you look, he'll have to go along with the running :)
