Happy Monday everyone, I hope you all had a good weekend! Mine was pretty… low key. Haha. Most everyone was out of town or busy so I spent a lot of time relaxing,  aka listening to Harry Potter Audiobooks and reading this month’s book club choice, Orange Is the New Black.

I also had a fun experience at GoldPlaited (more on that tomorrow), got my apartment pretty much put together, and tried out my sister-in-law’s church in Lincoln Park.

Those of you who’ve been reading for a while might remember back when I posted weekly workouts, including my running schedule. Well, if you’ve noticed I haven’t been following any kind of exercise or running plan for probably the past 6 months. With all the stress of studying and passing the bar I didn’t need one more schedule to deal with, but now that all of that is behind me, I’m really ready to start a new plan. I’ve learned that to see results you really need to stick to some sort of program for 2-3 months.

Although I’ve loved Tina’s Best Body Bootcamp in the past, I wanted to try something new. After starting to read the Purely Twins blog, enjoying their recipes and general attitude about life and exercise, I decided to join in on their Purely Fit program. Each session runs for 3 months, and there are 4 during the year so it’s always happening. To learn more about Purely Fit, check out their explanation post and video.

Every week they send out the workout schedule, which includes 1 rest day, 1 day of yoga or stretching, 1 day of cardio springs and 4 days of strength and circuit type workouts. One thing I love about their workouts is they are SHORT. The longest one I’ve done took me 26:56 and that’s because we were supposed to do it as quickly as we could and it just took me forever… haha. Yesterday’s was 12 minutes!

This works very well for me because I’m also getting back into running and about to start a half marathon training plan. This way I can do their workout and a short run all within an hour and be done for the day!

So now about that half marathon training plan…

After weeks of slowly building up my mileage (I’m at about 10 miles per week right now) I’ve decided it’s time to sign up for a race again. I miss having my running schedule, having a goal in mind, and a reward for all my running work (yes, I consider a race a reward – you get a medal!). However, this race is an even bigger deal than normal.


Remember those awesome roommates I had at the Healthy Living Summit this year? Well they invited me to visit them in Phoenix and I took them up on it! I’ll be running the Rock N Roll Half Marathon in Phoenix, AZ on January 19th and I AM SO EXCITED!!!!!!!!

I’m planning to follow Hal Higdon’s Novice 2 Half Marathon training plan, and I officially start the last weekend in October, so I have a couple weeks to get up to 13 miles per week, which is where the plan begins.


Are you signed up for any races?

Do you follow any kind of workout plan?

Are you visiting friends this year?
