Challenge Week- 8/20

It’s Monday, and that means it’s time for a CHALLENGE Week! 

With the weather finally being out of the triple digits, it gives us the nice opportunity to get moving outside and enjoy the nice temps for a change!

Here is your challenge for the week!

Get in an extra 7 miles of walking/ jogging/ running along with your normal boot camp workouts during the week!

I personally am not much of a runner. A few years back I decided to do the Lincoln 1/2 marathon and about 3-4 other races which was a good challenge for me but one of my last races landed me in the ER (you can ask me for the story if you want) and after that I haven’t pounded the pavement much.

I love training in the gym, doing sprint work, kickboxing and plyometrics. But it’s good to step out of your comfort zone as it builds your character as much as your body. Plus I think there’s a huge mental component to running that builds your mental toughness and clears your head, so that’s my motivation to add more running into my training.

For this challenge, you can walk a mile each day or knock it out in a few days, but your mission is to get your 7 in by Sunday!

Are you up for the challenge!?

I accept! I have a track here on my property and 2x around is 1.2 miles so no excuses!
I look forward to the extra workout!

Thanks, Mike! I needed something to get me going again. I haven’t ran any since the Thunder Run and I plan on doing the Buffalo Run in a couple of weeks. I wanted to run Saturday out in Wahoo while my boyfriend was fishing, but it was raining pretty good out there so there went that idea. I did run a quick little 1 mile when I got home from the workout this morning!
