New Strength Training Plan, YogaRunSweat 2 Challenge this September

For a while, I’ve been using CARVE Lifting and Insanity workouts to find a good mix of cross training for running — lifting weights and plyometric work.

Training plan update, New Youtube, More Pizookies, New Puppy soon

Few things here to post about!  First I’m switching up my training schedule a little bit.  One of my “insta-friends” who is a really great runner recommended doing my lifts on the same day as my tougher runs so my body has a better chance to recover on the ‘easy/cross training days’ in my training week.  I’ve updated my training schedule page to reflect that. … Continue reading Training plan update, New Youtube, More Pizookies, New Puppy soon
