Today’s Workout: lower body strengthening
Its not the end of the month yet, so I’m not going to review my June goals and set ones yet for next month. But I do already have a goal in mind. This one will be on my July list: the 30 Day Abs Challenge from @RunToTheFinish. Yup, I will be participating in a 30 day challenge for the first time (I don’t count my failed RW Run Streak because that was limited by injury).
I am really excited about this because my core is the most pathetic area of my body in terms of strength. I also think my weak core contributed to my injuries so hopefully this one will help me! It comes at a good time too because I’ll be starting running and training again in July for my fall schedule.
The challenge is based on the Strong Like Susan 30 Day Challenge, including “30 videos which provide you with daily exercise or clean eating tips on the rest days.” Then hopefully at the end of 30 days, I won’t need to try this..
As you may know, I’m a Sweat Pink Ambassador and am part of a great community of people from FitApproach. As FitApproach expands, more and more new ideas have been suggested. One of them includes a fun program for runners called the Sweat Pink Race Program! What’s exciting is that you DON’T have to be an ambassador to join!
The run program is a way to encourage others to participate and sweat pink in events, share the FitApproach message, and meet other people like you at local events! The program can be used for virtual races or in actual races, but in general, Sweat Pink teams will meet up at local events to represent FitApproach! Let me tell you, there are some awesome women involved in this organization so it would be great to get to know them.
I am hoping to meet up with other runners at local NYC events, so if you sign up and live in the area… let me know! It would be great to get a large group together in our Sweat Pink gear
What do you get if you join?
- A Sweat Pink wicking tee (designs are being picked now, they are CUTE)
- A drink pink wineglass, for toasting after races
- Team Pink buttons
- A team fundraising page (charity to be determined, but there is no minimum or maximum amount you have to raise!)
- Pink shoelaces
The cost to join is $30 for Sweat Pink Ambassadors and $35 for everyone else. Registration will be open until Friday, July 6 so gear can be shipped before race season, and you can sign up here. If you want join, you can get 10% off with the code: SPAMeganL
Last random thing about my day today, I discovered that Regular Cherry Twizzlers are amazing! SO much better than strawberry. I fell out of love with licorice for a while but this helped me fall back in love. Looks like licorice and Kombucha are my two new food obsessions!
Have you ever done any 30 day challenges?
What’s one random thing about your day?
I’m on the lookout for a new granola/energy bar.. I eat Clif bars and Think Thin bars mainly, but would love to try some new ones. Any ideas?
