Workout Wednesday Is Back!

Last month I participated in my first Nike Run Club Challenge to run a 50K, 31.06 miles, over the course of the month. This was an undertaking to say the least, but a much needed form of motivation to reignite my love for running and reaching my fitness goals. I was asked several times what on God's green earth possessed to participate in this challenge and how I managed to complete it, with 3 days to spare I might add. My answer was simple: I wanted to fall back in love with running so I just did it (tehe). 
For any of my readers who are runners, or athletes in general, you know how easy it can be to get into a workout rut. You go outside or to the gym 3, 4, 5 times per week and find yourself doing the same thing over and over. It's get boring. Participating in the 50K Challenge in March added something new and different to my workout regimen that helped me push myself mentally and physically. Along with the Nike Run Club app, this challenge also allowed me to hold myself accountable to getting those miles in every week and make sure I remained on pace to complete 31.06 miles by March 31st. I'm not going to lie, some days were harder than others. However, the Nike Run Club app has some AMAZING resources within it that help me no matter my level of motivation. One of my favorite tools to use, as I've mentioned before here, are the guided runs where a Nike coach or athlete is narrating your run as you go offering tips, cheering you on, and distracting you from thinking about the run itself. They have guided runs that focus on endurance, speed, and recovery so you can always find what you're looking for. I did one just last week with Simone Biles narrating and it was awesome to hear her comparisons between training as a gymnast and training as a runner! Her positivity helped me push through and complete my miles for the month.
The new batch of guided runs and completing the March 50K Challenge got me ready to launch our spring Workout Wednesday series! With spring here in full force and summer coming around the bend, I want to feel confident and like my best self at the beach, the pool, on vacation, and pretty much everyday! We have some challenging, but fun workouts in store along with my personal tips and meal prep solutions. I'll be taking on another 50K Challenge for April while also (gulp) going for the 100K, which is 62.13 miles! Not sure if I'll make it, but I'll never know until I choose to go for it either! Check out today's workout below! Remember to warm up with some cardio and a good stretch to wake up those muscles!
