I love challenges. My goal to run 600 miles in 2013 is going really well, and as usual Runner’s World is hosting their Running Streak, which I always love to participate in. However, I’ve had a lot going on and didn’t really get into it until now, so I’ve missed a few days, but I’m going to stick to it from now on.
That brings my grand total for 2013 to 238.5 miles (give or take) — I’d really like to bring my June mileage up to 60+ miles to hit that 300 mile mark at the end of June — putting me right on track for the 600 miles! It shouldn’t be too hard to do, I’ve been increasing my long run mileage pretty steadily so I’ve got some longer runs in my future. Participating in the #RWRunStreak should help too — because on days I wouldn’t normally be running I will be trying to get at least a mile in. For example, this morning I was in the mood to peruse some workouts on YouTube, but first I went outside and ran a mile first.
After a quick mile, I did 2 Blogilates workouts (Victoria Secret Abs and the Psy Gentleman workout) and the Tone It Up Bridal Babe workout. I don’t always do YouTube workouts, but there are so many great resources! I’d say that Blogilates and Tone It Up are my favorite, because they offer full-length workouts which you can follow along with, but I also really like Amanda Russell and Sarah Dussault (Sarah Fit on YouTube) — they both are great resources for workouts you can do away from your computer, whether in the gym or outdoors. I ended up getting a great workout and it took less than an hour!
Question of the Day:
Do you ever do workouts on YouTube? Who are your favorite trainers?
