Monday: 30 min legs
During Cyber Monday I joined the Picky Bar Club. I’m excited about having my energy bars delivered to me, and so far I’ve enjoyed all the flavors and the shirt they sent will be worn and loved! Do you guys read Lauren Fleshman’s (creater of Picky Bars) blog on Runner’s World? She’s an excellent writer.
I also grabbed a few of my favorites from Honey Stinger with 50% off.. They are having a 50% off sale everyday until December 12th on select items, so if you want to get a stocking stuffer for a runner friend or stock your own supply, take a look at their site!
Over the weekend I ran 5 miles and the darn IT bands are not happy. I’m smart enough now, not to try and push through pain. Especially when that specific pain is familiar. I skipped my long run and probably won’t be running at all this week. I’m focusing on activating my glutes and opening my hips, where I believe my weakness lies.
Instead of long running, Cameron and I ended up seeing the final Hunger Games, which i had mixed feelings over, but was happy overall with it. And we did a “tapas night.” About once a month we prepare a bunch of small plates and experiment with different flavors.
and of course there is a good husband with wine…
Alright let’s get to the giveaway! Spartan is giving one of my lucky readers a free entry into a Spartan Race. I’m going to be doing the Beast in Ohio this May.
This is currently the only future race on my schedule. I know it’s a little strange since I have big racing goals in mind. I figured training for something as physically demanding as a Spartan can only help with running. And I need to change it up! I want the challenge. I know I can do a marathon, I know I can run a fast 5k..but this is new and scary. And when something scares me, i know it will be awesome and so worth it! I remember when the idea of a marathon used to be scary…
One of Oiselle’s athletes, Andrea Duke, just finished a Spartan over the weekend & came in 3rd place! I started following her Instagram because I need the motivation that runners can be awesome at obstacle course races!
