From PiYO to Training for a 15k and Incorporating PiYO

Starting today I am on a new adventure in my “world of working out”! I just completed PiYO, and I absolutely LOVE the PiYO workouts!!! Yesterday was my last workout of the PiYO 2 month program.  When I weighed in today I had lost 7 pounds and 12 inches, since the start of PiYO on July 8th, 2014.  I am very happy with my success in the program.  I LOVE how PiYO is low impact but really gets the sweat going.  I have gained so much strength and confidence from doing this program. 

I haven’t always been a runner.  However, I have come to love running and now I am a runner, I love running, I love how running calms me, and I love how I feel for the rest of the day after running.  I put running on the back burner while I focused on my PiYO Challenge, which was ok, but now I need bring back my running.  I am doing a 15k in December with a friend and I started training for it today. My plan is to run two days focusing on “going the distance”, to run two days focusing on “increasing speed” and to have a long run day where I increase distance every week, and a recovery run the day after my long run.  I have incorporated PiYO into the mix with alternating between the Sculpt, Buns, Core, Sweat, Drench, and Upper videos.  My goal is to work out two times a day (big plansJ) for four days of the week, a rest day, and then two other run only days.  I have included my workout schedule in this blog for you to see if you are interested. 

My goal for the 15k is to complete it and have fun.  I have not set a time goal, maybe that will change when I work up to running farther in my training, we will see. 


Bottom line - find a workout you love, create a plan, and GIVE IT YOUR ALL EVERYDAY!!!
