It's June, which means it's time to fill up your feed with my running/blogging streak, Juneathon. Woot woot.
This year will be tough considering I am a new mom with less spare time and energy (!), but I can't ruin it four years in (plus I now own a treadmill so running out of daylight is no longer an obstacle), so I'll try my best.
Run, blog, log everyday.
On top of a running streak I have decided to add in a couple of 30 day challenges: squats/lunges, planks, and push-ups, all at the same freaking time. They are challenging but not enough to cause any mental/physical burnout I hope, so the goal is they should all work together.
You can do these with or without weight. I will probably do most at 50# while breaking them into 5 sets of 10 if needed.
Descriptions of the less familiar movements:
Plié squats - Stand with your feet more than shoulder width apart, toes pointed out, slowly bend your knees to parallel while keeping your knees over your toes.
1-legged squat - Keep your weight on your heel as you bend the knee, pushing your hips backwards as if you're going to sit.
Curtsy lunge - Take a large step backwards and diagonally as if you're bending into a curtsy while keeping your shoulders and hips squared/aligned and pushing down through your heel.
My mom is in town so today I didn't feel like doing anything more fitness related than walking around the mall.
My mom joined Dallin, Ben and I in the challenges above, and I started out the running streak with a one miler on the treadmill [in my clothes (and a wig from my mother-in-law)]. I was too lazy to change my clothes which is kind of ironic. I would explain the wig but I'm tired.
- Total June mileage: 1 treadmill
Happy June! Goodnight.
