5 Friday Favorites!

Monday: 7.5m interval (2m warm up, 4 mile repeats each @ 6:40/pace,  cool down)      

Tuesday: 3m easy 9:30/pace, 25min TRX legs, 3 x 6 toes to bar                                          

Wednesday: 5m hill sprints (30 sec sprints x 6.5% 6:35/pace + 1 minute walking recoveries)

Thursday: Rest

I need a day where I share some things I’ve been into. Friday might just be the normal day. It’s either a “Flex Friday” a “Phone Dump Friday” so I think a “Friday Favorites” might find it’s way into the rounds here on The Distance.

  1. This article Carrots n’ Cake posted to her Facebook. It’s worth the short read and something i stress to my clients, especially the newbies. Take note, focus on getting stronger or faster, not the number on the scale! (click the picture for the article!)Screen Shot 2016-02-11 at 9.12.34 PM
  2. The People Vs. OJ Simpson – Cameron and I got hooked on all this true story crime entertainment since we spent a few weekends ago binging on Making a Murderer. Now he’s hooked on Serial, and i need to get started on that (I’m late i know!). The People Vs. OJ is INCREDIBLE. We were on the edge of our seat 5 minutes in and I cannot wait until next week’s episode. Screen Shot 2016-02-11 at 9.22.48 PM
  3. Kodiak Cakes Instant Pancake on the Go. I bought these for mornings i don’t have time for my usual eggs & veggies and I love this stuff.  It’s seriously a protein packed, ready in 1-minute, delicious way to start the morning. –It is a little pricey though, $1.99 each. I save them for my super early mornings which happen about once a week, so they’re worth it to have on hand.File_000 (65)
  4. Afternoon cuddles with LE. I joked on Instagram that we were having our afternoon couch cuddles & peanut butter, but honestly we do that almost everyday. Apples & PB and cuddles as I’m resting before heading back into work. File_000 (63)File_000 (64)
  5. Zooma Run Love Challenge Swag– Specifically the Feetures! running socks. I’ve seen these socks in stores before and laughed at $15 socks. I would NEVER pay that much. Well put a sock in it, cause I will now. These are the first socks i’ve ever worn that did not make my feet sweat or cause blisters on long runs. I will be purchasing more as soon! Also- i included a picture of the awesome sweatshirt Zooma sent. It will be a weekend staple, it’s so cute & cozy.

Zooma Run Love Challenge + Spartan Giveaway Winner!

Well, my Sunday run was not super successful after a week completely off, but i’m looking at it as a glass half full…as in half my legs (IT band specific) felt good. Much better than last week, but still not perfect so i’ll continue to cross train and lay off running until it’s 100%. At least this is a great time of year to back off and prep my body for spring running!

I have recently signed up for Zooma’s Virtual Run Love Challenge! Registration is open until January 11th for the 5k or 10k. I opted in for the 10k, hoping to have a good speed work session during Valentine’s Day weekend. You can register HERE. This is a great last minute Christmas idea for you and a friend since you don’t have to travel to race!
