Hit several PRs last year and really enjoy getting some races on my calendar to look forward to. Since going back to work full-time, I doubt I’ll be able to train for another half, but would love to get these races on the calendar:
January: S-No-W Fun Run, Lake Geneva, WI (5 miles)- DONE! Time: 38:59
April: Ringing in Spring 10k, Valparaiso, IN
Race for the Bacon 5k, Cudahy, WI (weeknight race!)
Run for Freedom 5k, Antioch, IL
August: Gurnee Days 10k, Gurnee, IL
Harvest Moon 5k, Pleasant Prairie, WI (weeknight race!)
Hero Half/10k, Indiana Dunes OR
Popcorn Panic (5 miles), Valparaiso, IN OR
Homecoming 5k, Valparaiso, IN
After doing T25 for quite a while, I have been doing the 21 Day Fix for some variety and really enjoy it. I’ll sprinkle in an online workout or a Jillian DVD too when I want to mix it up. Otherwise, taking as many barre classes as I can…because clearly, I am obsessed. Basically, if I could run and take barre class (or teach it) every day, I would.
I’d really like to focus on cleaner eating. I’m a huge chocoholic and have quite the sugar addiction as a result (and my skin shows it), and want to focus on eating cleaner. I’ve done Weight Watchers to focus on losing weight post baby, and gave the Hungry Girl diet a try a couple years back out of curiosity, but now, I’m really interested in trying the Whole30 diet, especially after learning/reading more from Bri, Anne and Ashley, among others. But it seems very daunting with all the prep…oh, and the lack of carbs and chocolate and creamer in my coffee and basically all things right in this world!! But I hear that after a few days, the cravings aren’t as bad. I just need to find the time to shop and prep to set myself up for success…and probably wean myself off the sugar before I quit cold turkey.
Any suggestions on fun races, unique workouts or Whole30 advice you can give me? I’m all ears!
