Work-Outs 10/15-10/21

12 Nov

I’m really feeling the pressure of my upcoming  half marathon and thinking that I haven’t been running enough. There is a fine line between running enough and pushing too hard, and I’m trying to find the balance so I am prepared for the race but not injured.

AM: ZUMBA!!! Woohoo, this was a fun class and a good cross-training workout. I haven’t been in quite a while but I wanted a non-running cardio workout this morning.
