Leave It All On The Road // 11.24.2014

Hello friends!  It’s time for my weekly fitness recap!  I didn’t do much fitness the week before last…so technically…it’s a two-week update.  However…I think I’m finally ready to keep this momentum going!  I’ve been introducing some strength exercises to my weekly routine, and my running mileage this past week (14.6 miles) is the highest it’s been since the first week of September!!!  I was finally able to meet up with my friend, Liz, for a buddy run on Friday.  It was really nice to just run at a conversational pace and not worry about pace or distance.  We just started running and ran until we wanted to stop!  Of course, the numbers nerd that I am, recorded the run after the fact…but during the run it was nice to just run.

{ New Workouts}

You  may have noticed over the last couple of weeks that I’ve been doing some strength sessions.  I take bits and pieces of workouts from around the fitness blogging community, and have been trying various sets to figure out what I like and want to incorporate long-term.  Below are some examples of what I’ve done lately:
