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!
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):
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!
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!
