week 39 workout summary

With just three months to go in this year of daily sweats, my new focus is to try to ensure better balance between cardio and strength. On days with heavier cardio, I will attempt to get at least some level of resistance work in. That’s the plan. Wish me luck!

  1. Luck! (total props on the brevity, btw) And props on the workouts of course!!! I’m still struggling on the strength training. I will do more as I train for the half but it’s a whole new ballgame for me. But I want the muscles (and the energy) so I plod on… Thanks to your fabulous inspiration! You rock.

    Your Merrell Sole Sister in Sweat,

    • I’m so curious to hear about how the training for your half will differ from the 10k training. You should be so proud with what your going to make your body do. 13.1 miles. Wow!

    • Ha! I knew if anyone would notice, you would. Trying to clean it up and make it a bit more user-friendly. Still not sure this theme is the right one for the cleanest layout. Yours is really nice and clean. I may have to consider looking at themes again.

      • That’s so funny! I was looking at different themes over the weekend. 🙂 It’s so fun to play with that kind of stuff. Not surprised that we are on the same page on this…

  2. Good luck!

    As you know, the beauty of adding resistance training to our cardio workouts is that we burn more calories not only during the activity but after as well. Not a bad trade-off. 🙂
