So this week I have some really exciting news to share! Well, it is exciting to me, not sure how excited you’ll be about it but I’m going to share it anyway. 😉 

This past Monday, I started the first day of a new strength training program trial that I was picked to be apart of! This could not have come at a more perfect timing as I was looking to step up my strength workouts since I will be in “off season” mode until I start marathon training.  

A few weeks ago, right before the Syracuse Half, I was contacted by Jonathan Collins, creator of ShiftFit Performance Fitness Programs. He offers several different programs that are designed to improve your endurance, strength and physique.  

ShiftFit

He is working on a new program called ShiftFit Strong and asked me to be part of his trial group to test it out.  After learning a bit more information I happily accepted.  Though I have been pretty successful at creating my own workout routine and incorporating strength training (since it’s my first love), I was interested to see what someone else’s program would do and how it might challenge my body in ways that I haven’t.

I am only three days into the program but so far am really loving it. Monday was an upper body focus, Tuesday was sprint intervals and today is all about mobility.  Inverted Row with Lebert Equalizer

For the mobility part, I plan to get my spine aligned by my “on call chiropractor” aka my husband and do a little DVRT work with the sandbag- it is great for improving mobility and range of motion especially through the thoracic spine and shoulders. 

I am really excited to see what the rest of the program entails and how it improves my strength and endurance; both of which will be necessary foundations before I begin training for my Fall marathon! 

I have also been getting in my ab work this April with the #RockYourCore Challenge

My 4 year old is also really enjoying the challenge and even got some high knees in with me yesterday! 

Phew! Told you I’ve been busy! I also came up with an old fashioned bodyweight workout that can be done anywhere- no equipment needed except an interval timer, which you can download an app for.  Here is a list of 10 different interval training mobile apps in case you need some suggestions! :)

 I wrote it as 40 second on/ 20 seconds off but you can change it depending on skill level/how you feel.  

That about wraps it up for this week! Make sure to grab the badge and link up with us below if you have a workout, healthy recipe or fitness find to share and we will make sure to spread the inspiration around!
