Yes, You’ve Read That Post Title Correctly 😉
Last week I signed up for a 5 Day Faster Stronger Challenge at Running Moms. Carey is a physiotherapist and running coach looking to get moms into badass running shape with her programs. Last week was HIIT, strides, hills, core and just straight up running 🙂 (Want to try a few of her HIIT workouts? She has 3 of them, FREE, right here: 3 Simple HIIT Workouts)
|I did my strides on the indoor track at the Canada Games Centre.
|I did this HIIT at home with TeenThing. It kicked our butts!
|Carey is super supportive and was ready to answer any of our questions in the challenge (there was a Facebook page for us to talk/vent/share our experiences). Her workouts are made to fit into a busy mom’s schedule (she IS a mom, so she gets how hectic we can be!) She even had a quick Q&A with a nutritionist who gave us tips for what to eat before and after a run. Carey also has a Running Moms Facebook page (you can sign up for free through her website) where we can post our successes, our not so good days and get support.
This challenge starts tomorrow and I am super excited! I am ready to have someone tell me what to do, lol. This Challenge comes with a workout/running plan, nutrition plan and Good Form Running Series.
As a runner, I am stubborn and will not always fall back on my own personal training knowledge.
I am sometimes also less inclined to kick my own ass, lol.
I really needed something to push me (wisely) to get over my current running/training plateau. I have two back to back 5km races in September (Maritime Race Weekend – WOOHOOO!) and this was the perfect avenue to amp up my fitness.
Having a plan set out for me and knowing what I will need to eat each week will make my life so much easier!
So, the road to a faster and stronger me starts tomorrow.
Stay tuned for my weekly updates, I will be sharing everything here on the blog!!
