Fitness Friday–12/6

Friday has arrived once again! I hope you’ve all had a great week and are looking forward to an enjoyable weekend!

Before we get into this week’s fitness routine, I’d like to mention that I did not run very much this week. During the Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving Day, my right IT Band decided to act crazy, so I didn’t want to chance anything this week with my Half Marathon on Sunday. I did keep up with my squats/lunges and icing all week, so I hope that helps come Sunday’s race.


Currently training for:
-Woman’s Half Marathon - December 8, Louisiana
-Rock N Roll New Orleans Marathon – February 2, 2013, Louisiana
-Glass Slipper Challenge, Princess Half Marathon Weekend – February 22 & 23, Walt Disney World

Saturday – Travel Day
Sunday – Squats/Lunges Routine and 30 Day Core Challenge
Monday – Squats/Lunges Routine and 30 Day Core Challenge
Tuesday – 2.5 mile jog in a.m.; 2.5 mile jog in p.m. (as part of the 5 before the 5th Challenge) 
Wednesday – Squats/Lunges Routine and 30 Day Core Challenge
Thursday – Squats/Lunges Routine and 30 Day Core Challenge
Friday – Squats/Lunges Routine and 30 Day Core Challenge

My fingers are crossed for Sunday’s Half Marathon – I just hope I am able to run and make it to the finish line upright!

Yesterday, I realized that I had not yet announced the winner of my Spartan Race giveaway. I apologize, I think  the holiday madness got to my brain.


Congratulations, Nikki! I hope you enjoy your Spartan adventure!

Speaking of winning things…I won a Mystery Prize Pack from Skin Strong last week! They hosted a giveaway on Facebook, asking athletes to share how they thanked their loved ones over the past year for their race support. I sent in the Youtube video of my husband’s Disney World surprise and I won the giveaway! Skin Strong asked me to record a video while I opened the box, so I did…and boy was I surprised! This bag was filled with all kinds of awesome goodies! Check out the video below to see what all was inside.

I hope you have a great weekend!

What are your weekend plans? If you’re racing, I hope you have a great race!! :0)
