Run, Don't Stop

From the last post I shared with you I registered to run the Rock "n" Roll half-marathon and began my training. I've also been asked by a few what steps I'm following in order to build up for the race. So I thought it would be great to share with you and anyone who is interested in ever running, what are some of the steps to get ready. By no means am I an expert but I do love to do my own research, ask questions and learn from others. Any tips and advice is always welcome.

My training will consist of running 5- 6 days a week from moderate pace, speed, and interval. Each week I will add a mile and move my way up to the 13.1 miles. Along with that I will include yoga at least once a week to increase my flexibility and stretch out my muscles. I will also be doing strength training after every run to loose the jiggle. (lol)

Training Schedule:

4 miles:: Wednesday, Friday, Sunday
Long distance running at a steady pace
-Lower body weight training

Thursday, Saturday, Monday
30 min. Uphill Interval Running: 30sec run/ 30 sec. walk
-Upper body weight training

Tuesday: Yoga
Since I work late and wont be able to catch a yoga class I use youtube for yoga video along with full body stretches.

And if you are looking for quick and easy breakfast recipe to have ready to go in the morning here's a yummy, full of nutrients- Blueberry smoothie.

Blueberry Oatmeal Smoothie
1/2c Blueberries
1/2c Almond Milk or any milk of choice
1/4c Oats
1 Banana
4 Strawberries
1 tsp Bee Pollen or Chia (optional)

Blend everything together and pour it in a cup and head out the door. If you are always in a rush then I recommend making it the night before. 
*Note, if you are going to add chia seeds, do so before you drink it. Otherwise your smoothie will become a pudding.
