TRAINING + TONE IT UP TUESDAYS

Welcome to another training Tuesday! Last weeks update was on instagram -> you can check it out here.

This was a great week for me! I really stuck with my nutrition and work out plan, while getting some good mileage in for my half marathon training.

Last Saturday – Pink Yoga
Bloomingdales hosted a Pink Yoga class at my local Bloomies! For $10 (all of which went to charity) we got to take an awesome Saturday morning yoga class and got some goodies. I love pop up fitness classes where you can change up your routine and experience something really fresh and usually from a great teacher.

Tuesday – Tuck Tuesday
Another Tuesday at Pure Barre – really loving this class!

Wednesday
Got my 5 Daily Moves in followed by some additional abs and leg work! Good at home workout!

Thursday
I felt super nauseous so no work out for me…

Friday – Barre before Bar
I was able to make the 5:30pm Pure Barre class (which is the last of the day) to start my weekend right. Tons of booty work! I was glad to get a good workout in before celebrating my friends birthday and Saturday’s football watch party.

Sunday Runday at the Surf City 10
I will do a full recap on this race this week, but I had a great race shaving 3 minutes off my current fastest time… still chasing my 2011 PR but so close. I got a 10K so 6.2 miles in for my half training.

Monday
Never miss a Monday had me back at the 8pm Pure Barre class! Only my calves were sore from my race so it wasn’t too bad.

Here’s to another week kicking butt in the TIU 31 Day Challenge!

Training + Tone It Up Tuesday

Welcome to another Training Tuesday and the first Tone It Up Tuesday! If I did my math correctly we are 100 days from the 10K of the Star Wars Half Marathon Light Side Race!! Plus I have officially started the Tone It Up 31 Day Challenge! All very exciting stuff her people.

Saturday – Day 1 of the TIU 31 Day Challenge!
Did PiYo Sweat for a 35 min work out plus the 31 reps of the daily moves. These daily moves are free and you can access them here.

Sunday – Sunday Runday
3.1 Miles out on the road. Per my training plan it was supposed to be 5 miles but the TIU challenge had you do a 5k. With the TIU 31 plan I am actually working out more and will hit higher mileage fast – so I figured it would all shake out in the end. Also my 31 reps. Surprisingly these were 3 rough miles. I told myself just make it to 2, then to 2.5 and finally convinced myself to the 3.1! Damn you never know when tough runs will sneak up on you…

Monday – Tuck  You Monday (hehe)
Monday evening I took my first Pure Barre class from the Groupon I bought (pack of 10). I have done Cardio Barre and Pop Physic before but really loved going to Pure Barre and felt like I got an amazing workout in!

Tuesday – Training Tuesday
30 minutes on the road as another training run!

So far the Tone It Up 31 Day challenge has been going good! My meal prep and food plan has been on point. I cannot wait until a few more weeks to start sharing some results with you!

#TIU 31 Day Challenge

I love fun ways to stay motivated for health and fitness and when the Tone It Up girls, Katrina and Karena, announced that they were launching a brand new 31 Day Challenge – I knew I was in! Between having family in town and being in Toronto, September was not my healthiest month. I am so excited to get re-focused on my nutrition and workout, while still working towards my race goals.

I am taking this challenge extra seriously as I will actually have the time to do it! October is turning out to be a pretty easy month for me…

If you know how Tone It Up works than you know that once you join as a nutrition member you get every plan FOREVER… So I will be getting the all new meal plan to really drive this challenge home. Strangely looking forward to this!

The 31 Day Challenge Starter Kit is already available, so I decided to get started with my prep. I made a 4 week long printable to be a handy little check off journal and will be customizing the work out plan to my needs. My printable will have my checking off my booty call workout, hydration, and the new 31 rep challenge. Plus I have included sections to fill in my meals (M1-M5).

For the workouts I will be running (obviously), using my PiYo dvd’s, the Tone It Up girls work out videos (free on YouTube) and a 10 class Pure Barre Groupon that I bought!

Alongside that I want to make my meal prep count! I am ordering these meal prep containers to really put my prep game on point. During my 31 Day Challenge I am also going to do my own beauty challenge / a little self care with a Kate Somerville Clinic To Go Peel and some teeth whitening.

With the addition of this challenge I will make my Training Tuesdays now Training & Tone It Up Tuesdays.

There is still time to get in on this challenge!! Anyone with me?
