Happy Wednesday, everyone! I’ve been getting a lot of questions about my Running Guide and how I’m training, so today I thought I’d do a running update and answer all of your questions!
I am currently on week 6 of my Running Guide! This week and next week in my guide are definitely the hardest, but you’ve just got to push through! My half marathon is coming up in three weeks and I’ll be running it with my dad, my sister and some of my girlfriends.
I’m also doing BBG and a lot of you are wondering how I incorporate into my running schedule. Aside from running, right now I’m focusing on my arms and my abs. At first I also had a leg day but I’ve recently stopped doing legs because I feel like I get enough with my running. So the schedule I have right now is arms on Monday and abs on Friday! And every day after I run I do my strength training exercises (typically takes 10-15 minutes). Strength training is SUPER important and will really help your knees and hips, so be sure you’re making time for that.
And now for a few running tips!! First: If you are running for longer than 30 minutes, trying taking an energy supplement to help boost your energy and keep you going. My favorite is the Crystal Light energy drink!! Second: Proper nutrition plays a major role in training. My Running Guide has a nutrition section that includes some good meal ideas (pages 18-24).
Ever since I had my twins in December my back will randomly go out and give up resulting in me being down for 2-3 days. This is the fourth time it’s happened since Graden and London were born so I actually had to skip yesterday’s run. But I’m hoping to try to run tomorrow!! Has anyone else experienced this? It’s not from training or working out, I’m convinced it has something to do with having twins 5 months ago!
I would love to follow along on your runs and training journey, so whenever you post be sure to use #GRLPWRRunningGuide! If you have any additional questions please ask in the comments below!
