Wild Workout & Training Update!

Hello friends!  It has been a little crazy and exhausting getting back into my workout routine!  I was still active on and off the last few weeks of 2015, but didn’t really get to the gym very much.  It felt SO good to be back last week!  I also got back into my training for the next half marathon that is on the books (March 5th)!
I am joining the Wild Workout link up with link up with Angelena Marie from  Angelena Marie: Happy, Healthy & Balanced , Michelle at Fruition Fitness  and Nicole from Fitful Focus and Annmarie from The Fit Foodie Mama

Friday- Rest and enjoying my new running coloring book by a fellow Sweat Pink ambassador, Sarah, and book by one of my favorite and inspiration runners, Danica.
Seriously, if you love to run, want to run, or just want to learn more about running, go get these books! (I am just putting them out there because I have really enjoyed them…not benefiting in any way other than sharing the awesomeness!)

I have been a little sore, but really loving getting back to my training and routine!
I started using a supplement from Young Living called Ningxia Nitro, and I can totally tell a difference in my workouts!  So awesome!

April Showers Bring May Flowers…

This week brought a lot of showers in my life.  It has not been easy, but I am thankful for all those around me who have been so supportive with love, hugs, and prayers.
With all the showers in life, there are always rainbows and flowers too.

May Goals!
I have been slacking on my goals the last few weeks, so I decided to put them out here to get some accountability and encouragement!

One of my goals for running has to hit 100 miles in a month.  This month I am going to run a 5k (or more depending on my training schedule) a day!  I am really excited about this and I really hope I am able to reach this goal

I also am going to join the plank-a-day challenge!  I do planks in some of my workout classes, but it is an area I seek improvement in.  I will be posting my daily times on instagram.

To run 3 more races.  I am up to 13 races in my quest to run 33 in 2014!

TO GET MORE SLEEP!  This has certainly been the most challenging part of my healthy lifestyle lately.  Insomnia has gotten the best of me and I really need to refocus on getting proper sleep and not just letting the insomnia.

To blog more.  I have so many ideas about posts yet most of them stay in my mind.  So here is to blogging at least 15 times in May!

What goals do you have for May?
What helps you stick to your goals?
