Days 4 & 5: Laugh Hard and Run Long

good laugh long runAfter a long hard week…what’s the best way to relax? A good hard laugh and a long run will cure almost anything! 🙂

Felling down, or stressed, or just plain over your week means you need some “you” time so get up, get dressed, and let’s go long!

Grab a good friend…or a good book on tape and laugh your way through the miles. Come home refreshed on your Runner’s High and be ready to tackle the rest of your weekend!

Day 4 exercises: Long Run + 7 Key Stretches for Runners + Low Side Plank (:30 each side)

Day 5 exercises: Yoga for Runners – So I have to admit that I have yet to make our Yoga for June page….I’m sorry! This week has been non-stop go go go… and I won’t make any more excuses…but it just isn’t done yet. If you are going long on Sunday and need a relaxing yoga day today…go ahead and run through our May Yoga poses one more time. If you are going long today and doing Yoga on Sunday…stand by…I do have new Yoga ready (in my head) and will have the new page done and up by tomorrow. 🙂

Thigh Challenge: Thigh Challenge is going strong so if you opted to jump in for this…don’t forget those leg moves today. Thankfully, they are still minimal reps so you should be able to complete them even sore and tired after your long run.

  • 12 Fire Hydrants
  • 25 Scissor Kicks
  • 20 Inner Thigh Leg Lifts

Racery: Today, we are starting a Spartan inspired Racery from Athens to Sparta for a total of 132.9 miles in teams of 5. If you have not signed up yet there is plenty of time to jump in. Click here to join a team…or if the teams are full..start a new team!

What else….hmmmm…I think that’s all for today but let me tell you…I think the last few days have been the most pumped up and exciting start to a new month yet!

Keep pushing Core Crew….be active every single day! We have a few injuries but even those sidelined Crew members are finding ways to be active and keep moving…so inspiring!!

move fasterGood luck to everyone racing this weekend! Alison has her first ever 10K today and I’m sure there’s are others racing this weekend too! GOOD LUCK!!

If you’re chatting during a race, if you feel comfortable…you’re not moving fast enough! Unless you’re just there to have fun (which is fine) race day is the time to bring all that training together and leave everything you’ve got on the course!
