This morning I participated in a virtual race, hosted by The Boring Runner! Adam hosts 2 of these every year, summer and winter. As you can tell by the picture, it is a 5k (3.1 miles). This can be done as a stand-alone run, or it can be included in a longer run…basically anything goes!
As it is snowing here, and I am a cold-weather wuss (the picture doesn’t show the snow falling, but trust me- it is), so it’s the trusty treadmill to the rescue! My 5k was completed in 28:35. Not too bad, as I ran another 3 miles to get my long run in for the week!
Monday: 3 mile run + 30 push-ups (x2) and 100 crunches
Tuesday: 30 minute interval hill workout
Thursday: 30 minute speed (HIIT) workout
Friday: 3 mile run + 30 push-ups (x2) and 100 crunches
Saturday: 6.1 mile run
These are the last few days of the 100 push-up challenge. If you have been participating, how did you do? I’m pretty happy with making it to 30. I know that is nowhere near 100, so I am going to keep adding these in to my workouts. I’m also going to re-visit this challenge later in the year, so maybe I will have a better chance at making it then!
One last thing: a quick “Thank You” shout-out to Skinny Runner and Fit Approach! Skinny Runner had a contest for a Sweat Pink tank top (from Fit Approach), and I was one of the random-drawn winners! I received my tank, along with some cool bright pink shoes-laces! It’s too cold for me to model (my skin goes into hibernation in the winter!), but here is a picture!
Question(s) of the day: If you read blogs (more than just mine!), have you ever won a contest…and if so, what did you win? AND…for those of you with your own blog, have you ever held a contest, and of so, what was the prize?
