Make a splash: Swim workouts!

Swim Workout | Keep it Real Clean Happy Thursday! So I’m finally I’m back to hitting the pavement. After this seriously freezing winter, running took a jump to the back burner BUT the good thing was I was able to reintroduce swimming as a workout, despite our previous tumultuous relationship.

Keeping it moving: Nike Training App

Nike Training Club| Keep it Real Clean Happy Tuesday all! Just wanted to pop in and tell you all about an awesome FREE app that I’ve been using a whole bunch this holiday season. Up until November 24th, I was GUNG HO about running and pretty much planned my life around the running schedule. So pretty much this was my life: “Happy hour?” “Nope, I need to do 7 miles. See YA!” Now? “Happy hour?” “YUP. But can we only drink champagne?” What? I like holidays okay? Unfortunately, December has been tough for the workouts, but recently I started incorporating a new at home workout for the days that are tough on time (aka those days that fun outweighs the workout).

Fitness Goals for 2015

Keep it Real Clean| Fitness Goals for 2015 So now it begins. That time each year when you start to think about your New Year’s Resolutions or big plans for the year. I think this year it has hit me a little bit earlier since I’m still coming off the high of running my first half marathon and overall a truly awesome year in general. The 2013 was easily one of the hardest years that I, along with much of my family, has endured. Luckily, 2014 has truly been a wonderful year to help balance a slightest bit of that year for me. Here’s to hoping for an even better 2015! I have begun to start thinking about what types of goals I may have for next year.

Operation Motivate: 7 miles!

photo 2 (1) Happy Monday! Hope everyone is all pumped up for a fun week ahead. I for one am superrrr excited for this week considering its the LAST.WEEK.BEFORE.THE.HALF. YAYY! Not only am I excited to get out and do this race to prove to myself that I can do it, but I would say I’m actually pretty pumped to be able to take a slight, semi step back from running so much. First of all, I would like to start that by saying I never would have considered myself a runner…until about 6 months ago…now? Oh, I am totally a runner. Heyyy girl heyy. SO, with all of that being said considering that I have been running on average 3-4 times weekly for the last 15 weeks I’m ready to take a set back and hop into a little variety in my workouts.
