Fitness Friday

TGIF, am I right? Except I have to work an event tomorrow, so my week isn't technically over. Oh well, at least we're supposed to have some beautiful weather here in Maryland this weekend. Bring on Fall, that's what I say! 

I also realized that I never did Fitness Friday last week, because I'm a slacker and totally forgot. Whoopsies! This week has been a good one for fitness for me. Not only did I lose 3 pounds (say whattt??), but I've been hitting the running/walking hard. And I'm not nearly as miserable. Why? Because the good folks at Charm City Run recommended new shoes for me. And $130 later, my shin splints are finally starting to die down. Totally worth the money.

So, what did I do this week? 

Saturday: 5K run/walk around the neighborhood
Sunday: Nothing
Monday: 5K run/walk
Tuesday: 5K run/walk
Wednesday: 30 minutes of yoga/pilates
Thursday: Nothing
Friday: Today I plan to either do some 30 Day Shred or the 5K run/walk. It all depends on timing.

As you can see, I've doubled my usual mileage to a 5K. Why? Well, because it's more cardio for me, and also because hubs and I are planning to sign up for another race. And this time, I'd like to be able to run longer and finish faster. 

How did you do with your fitness this week?

I'm glad it keeps you motivated too! I certainly need the motivation most days. Nile has really been helping me with that. When's your race?
