Average Pace: 7:52
Cross Training: none
How did it feel/Thoughts: So I still felt sore from the leg workout the other day and I feel like all my muscles are finally catching up with the soreness. A good recovery pace isn’t bad to take when listening to my body.
This core exercise works your inner thighs and your love handles!

Cross Training: 10 minutes abs
How did it feel/Thoughts: It was significantly warmer and I was twice as sore from my leg and butt exercises the other day. It was a little miserable. Every hill I hit I felt like I was going to die. Ready to start feeling good after these hell weeks of getting back into tip top shape. Other than that I have a busy day and a job interview! Hope all goes well and I will have a job at bath and body works!!
Okay, so as a runner, I often forget the importance of strengthening my lower back. Also, I struggle to know what to do for lower back workouts. I came across these exercises and I have to say that they are pretty awesome! I could feel my lower back being put to work and I loved the use of the exercise ball. Of course I ended up ignoring how many reps they told me to do on the picture and did how many I thought was necessary. All in all I highly recommend you try these out for yourself!
I completed these exercises today for my arm workout (I also did some other exercises besides this.) I used 5lb dumbbells and did 2 sets of anywhere between 10-20 depending on the difficulty. I liked these exercises because they are different from the ones I usually do. I’m definitely going to have sore arms tomorrow! Especially since using 5lb dumbbells was difficult!
Average Pace: 7:45
Cross Training: arms/back
How did it feel/Thoughts: It was warmer again today and I was feeling my butt exercises I did yesterday. I ran how my body felt and decided it was ok to take a day at a slower pace.
Average Pace: 7:21
Cross Training: 15 min core, butt, legs
How did it feel/Thoughts: felt alright. I was a little sore and it was raining so it made it a little miserable. Overall it was a much needed run for some stress relief and relaxation.
