This morning I was up around 6 am for a quick 5 mile jaunt with my breakfast running club ladies. We have formed a little running club in my neighborhood so a couple of the ladies met up to watch the beautiful sunrise and sweat it out a bit.
Although I love my solo runs I do like to switch it up during the week from time to time and run with friends. I am so lucky that the girls in my neighborhood love getting up early and busting it out just like I do. I think running with friends definitely helps to give you a boost and sometimes will push you to work a little harder when you don’t want to.
My friend Elyse is super fast and also runs marathons like myself so I love
trying to keeping up with her for most of the way.
After the run I came home and did a mini strength set in my living room. I keep the weights by the tv so there’s no excuses not to get my lift on. This set takes about 15-20 minutes…great if you are strapped for time. Or do a few more rounds if you want to go a little bit longer.
Do you have a workout you like to do in your living room or if you’re strapped for time? How do you encourage yourself to work harder while you’re running?
