I’m going to warn you in advance that this post is a bit more scattered than usual. I generally like sticking to one theme, but there are four things I want to share with you today! So enjoy today’s Workout Wednesday, even if it is slightly out-of-the-ordinary!
National Physical Fitness Month
Did you know that May is National Physical Fitness and Sports Month? The Department of Health & Human Services, along with other organizations, emphasizes the importance of getting kids involved in physical activity during this month. The current recommendation is that kids should be engaged in active playing time for 60 minutes every day, to improve fitness and overall health. (picture source)
If you could use some help in motivating your kids to move a bit more, healthfinder.gov provides a few resources. I also have a post with seven fun tips to involve your kids in exercise … including a fun game with playing cards! Did you catch what I recommended as the most important thing you can do to set your kids up for exercise success?
“Train With A Friend” Half Marathon Training Plans!
I opened up this special deal to my newsletter subscribers last week, and still have one group spot left, so I wanted to share it with you all as well!
If you want to start training for your first race, or if it’s your first time conquering a new distance, it’s a good time to consider a running coach. Working with a running coach will not only help you complete the distance or improve your time, but will also help you:
- Stay accountable and motivated throughout the ups and downs of race training
- Add fun, new workouts to spice up your routine
- Have a trusted resource who can help adjust your plan based on life circumstances, potential injuries, or other activities
September / October are the most popular months for half marathons, and 12-16 weeks (NOW!) is a great time to start training for a fall Half.
So, I’m introducing my “Train with a Friend” Half Marathon Training Plans! With a discounted “Train with a Friend” package, you and 1-5 friends will each get your own customized training plans, but you’ll do group coaching calls, and you’ll get to schedule long runs and key workouts as a group! Savings, friendship, and running … what more could you ask for? Email me to reserve this last spot today!
Of course, if you prefer to be a solo runner (me too!), I still offer my regular customized training plans a la carte, or with one-on-one virtual coaching!
Organic Produce Guest Post!
OK, so this one isn’t workout related, but I wanted to share my guest post over at It’s a Harleyyy Life! I talk about whether to choose organic, and which items are more critical than others!
1-Year Celebration and Giveaway!
Just a reminder that you have until tomorrow at 11:59pm CT to enter my big giveaway!!!
So tell me in the comments … What can you do to celebrate National Physical Fitness and Sports month? Do you run with a group or alone? Do you buy organic or conventional produce, and how do you decide?
