5 by the 5th Winners and Link up

First, I almost forgot to pull a winner from the For Two Fitness giveaway last week… can I blame that on pregnancy brain? It’s Christina (the one who said she is currently 15 weeks pregnant) ….. congrats!!

So how is the 5 by the 5th challenge going? This is the second month.  Did you push yourself a little harder on your race this month?

I did mine on the treadmill on Wednesday.  I warmed up with 3 miles, took my usual smushed bladder pee break, and then ran my 5k.  I wasn’t “racing” it but I did run at a slightly faster pace than I felt like running.  I like hanging around the 9:15-9:30 pace on the treadmill these days.  I certainly won’t see 6:xx or 7:xx  minute miles again until after this baby is born.  Probably not many 8:xx paces either.  And I’m okay with that!

March 5 by the 5th

I didn’t realize this when I was setting it up, but all of March’s prizes are fuel related: pre, post and during the workout.

Here are this month’s winners (randomly pulled):

Larabars –

These yummy bars are made from nuts and dried fruit, with very few ingredients (all of which you will recognize).  They’re great as a pre or post workout snack.  The winner is….  Allison T!

Probar Organic Chews

Great long run fuel.  I trained for my fall marathon with these and loved them! The ingredients are cleaner than many gus and chews available, and they’re delicious.  The winner is…. Liz B!


Drink Chia!

Mmm, these drinks are so good.  They’re very lightly sweetened (just 40 calories) but delicious! They contain chia seeds for protein, hydration, antioxidants and b-complex vitamins.   I love the strawberry citrus and lemon blueberry.  They’re great for pre or post workout hydration and recovery.  The winner is… Maria H!

If you won, please contact me with your mailing address.

Hope you all have a fantastic weekend!

How was your 5 by the 5th race?

  1. Congrats to all the winners – YAY! Love the pic of your belly on the ‘mill. So cute. That’s a pretty good pace mama – nice job! I plan on running my last long run before my NYC Half a week from Sunday – yikes!!!

  2. I did mine as 5 miles of hill repeats in the middle of 11 mile run, good workout for sure! I love how active you are staying and while you might not see lightning paces for a while, the fact that you are still getting out there and running at all is inspiring! You are going to come back so strong after the little one!
