Weekly Workout Recap and Giveaway Winner!

This week was pretty interesting, fitness-wise. I decided last week to drop my mileage, give my head a break from too much running, and really focus on cross-training and stretching instead. How did I do?

Monday: 45 Minutes of yoga, 30 minutes of upper body and abwork
Tuesday: 1 hour of P90X Plyometrics
Wednesday: Ran 6 Miles
Thursday: 45 Minutes of Yoga, 30 minutes of upper body and abwork
Friday: 1 hour of P90X Plyometrics
Saturday: Ran 8.5 Miles
Sunday: 45 Minutes of Yoga, Walked 2 Miles

Total Mileage: 14.5 Running (16.5 total)

So...that's about half of my normal mileage, but I felt pretty great about it. Managed to get in 3 yoga sessions, 2 interval workouts (P90X) and 2 strength training sessions in.

This week: I'd like to keep my mileage low. Aiming for around 20 miles this week, and again focus on cross training. Then I'll head back into running mode!

Ok, now I know you're all just sticking around to see if you won a box of BumbleBar Jr's. I entered everything into the random calculator and got......

The 25th comment belongs to.....Run with Jess!

Congrats Jess! Send me an email so you can get your box of BumbleBars. I know these will come in handy, you're probably pretty hungry after your 18 MILE RUN this weekend!!! Definitely stop by her blog if you haven't already, this woman is amazing!

I hope everyone is having an amazing 4th of July today! And if you don't live in America, I guess it's just Monday. Sorry about that. 

What is the tastiest red, white, and blue food concoction you can think of?
I think I would mix up some red strawberries, blueberries, coconut and greek yogurt. Yum!

What are your fitness goals this week? 
Focusing on cross training again, and my goal is to have 3 days where I focus on upper body and get in my push-ups!
