It has been a very long time since I have posted a Mamavation Monday post and I'm not quite sure why. I'm back though so here's my first post to get back into a routine....well, a day late but hey, it's progress, right?!
Anyway, I have been working out but not as much as I probably should. I am not participating in any monthly challenges or workout routines but I have been running a lot since I am in training for the half marathon. Included in that training in cross training and strength. I haven't been doing any big lifting but rather lower weights with more reps and I've been walking or doing ab work for my cross training.
This month, I am going to participate in the Virtual Ride for Breast Cancer with Jess from Run With Jess. I will be riding 31 miles this month, most likely in a few rides. I can incorporate that into my cross training and it will help strengthen my legs and keep me aware. I would encourage everyone else to sign up too and we can all ride together!
I need to find a monthly challenge to do! I think I will look for an ab one to do so that I can strengthen my midsection and core. I haven't been pushing myself as hard as I should be so this is a target area for me to strengthen. I love the monthly challenges because I don't lose focus and I am building up gradually instead of trying to go balls to the wall. Yes, I just said that! haha.
What have you been doing lately? Do you have any monthly goals this month? My monthly goal is to run at least 50 miles which shouldn't be too hard for me since my daily runs are at least 5 miles.
