Training for a half marathon is not an easy thing to do. It asks for a lot of motivation, dedication and will power. You can’t just show up at the race without months of preparation. I tell you, that would be mission impossible.
Next to running 5 days a week, I also have a weight lifting class (1,5 hour) on Monday and Wednesday evening and since I would love to actually have abs when showing off in my bikini in a couple of months, I added the Lorna Jane Ab Challenge to my workout week too.
In my weight training class I usually run for 15 to 20 minutes to warm up. After the warm up I either do lower -or upper body for an hour, followed by floor work with the whole group. The floor work consists of ab exercises, yoga poses, exercises with heavy medicine balls and so on. We usually work with a partner, so it’s kind of a social thing to do! I love it!
I love the LJ ab challenge, because it doesn’t take a lot of time. You can perfectly do it when you wake up or before you go to bed, and even though you’re done with those exercises in no time, they are a great workout. I have been so sore on my abs for the past days! It’s crazy! But hey, you know what they say right?! Sore is the new sexy! 😉
For the running schedule I’m on week 4 right now. I have the habit to do the whole week over whenever I didn’t fully complete the mileage of the week. Now I don’t have the time to do that anymore, so I will have to plan my runs better and I’ll have to work way harder!
What workouts do you do? What’s your favorite ab exercise? Do you know about any blogs or websites about running/health that I should check out?
I hope you’re having a fabulous and active day! Stay healthy!
