2 week recap: Mid May Training = Barre & Champs!
Who’s ready to get crazy with a 2 week recap? 2 weeks ago I planted a garden. Yes that’s right. Early this May, I decided to finally plant that herb garden I’d been talking about since we moved in almost a year ago. Well herb garden turned into backyard makeover. We have a fantastic space and weren’t taking advantage of it until now. I really just wanted to share because I’m obsessed with the space. We place all kind of fresh herbs and plants that will repel bugs. Did you know there’s a citronella plant? Check out the amazing results below.

That’s a lot of Barre. I know. While my knee feels a lot better it’s not totally 100%. Barre has been a HUGE asset in helping build back on my leg strength. All the pulsing and tucking has really enabled me to develop the gluten and leg strength that I had been lacking. My hope is that by focusing so much on strength training and maintaining a solid fitness level I will be able to transition into marathon training in the next few weeks.
In between all the exercise and gardening, life keeps moving forward. Over Memorial Day I had a fantastic girl’s weekend here in DC.
After girlie weekend I crashed on Sunday and went to my sister’s for a Memorial Day get together. We had a fantastic time and explored her neighborhood pool. spoiler alert: I love it. I see many summer pool days in my future. Hubby and I also decided to participate in the Runner’s World streak. It came up when checking Instagram on the way to my sister’s house. I discovered that Runner’s World is challenging runners to run at least 1 Mile a day from Memorial Day – July 4th. We all know I can never resist a challenge, so we’ve committed. It’ll be a great jump start for fall race training and a purposeful reminder daily of the commitment to training that we each have made.
What are your feelings on challenges? Any workouts you’re obsessed with? How’s your training going? Do any thing fun or meaningful for Memorial Day weekend?
