Training Tuesday- 25 Days Until The Calgary Marathon

I'm not going to lie, I struggled to get all my workouts in last week. With my treadmill still not working (I ordered a part to try and fix it) and wanting to spend all my time with London some workouts didn't happen. Still, I'm going into the Calgary Marathon feeling good. I've upped my strength training and am working with a Physiotherapist to be a stronger, smarter and faster runner. My ultimate goal is to cross the finish line at the NYC Marathon in November!

Speaking of the NYCM, yesterday I hit my Team For Kids fundraising goal! 

Thank you so much to everyone who donated, shares my links, and bid on my auction items! 


I'm so excited, and a little nervous, to be running my first marathon but I'm ready to put in the work to get there! 

Okay, let's take a look at my workouts from this past week:

Tuesday: Brandt's Beauty Booties (butt, legs and core) class. 1 hour.

London came too and loved working out with the girls. He likes to act as extra resistance during some of the exercises which works out great for me! ;)

Friday: Started a Plank-A-Day challenge for the month of May.

Search #ultimateplankchallenge, on Instagram, to play along!

Sunday: 5.25 mile run.

It was a beautiful night for a run and I ended up doing on my favourite hills. I even managed to run all the way to the top!

Monday: Body Pump (1 hour) & 3 mile run. 

I can't get enough of Body Pump. This is my third time I've taken the class at Goodlife Fitness and each time I leave with a huge smile on my face. Yes, it's hard for me (especially the new release) but it's a great challenge. You pick your weights so each person is lifting what works for them. I had new (to me) instructors, last night, who recognized I was a newbie and made sure to check-in with me which I thought was super sweet! I stayed for a 3 mile run after and was dripping sweat by the time I left.

Oh, and since I told you yesterday I would share some of the photographs from our family session, here are two of my favourites!

I LOVE them all and can't wait to get some up on my walls of my new house! 

Are you training for anything right now?
How's it going?

Have a great day and, if you live in Alberta, don't forget to vote!
