I can’t believe my first race of 2016 is less than two weeks away! It would be a lie to say I haven’t been training for it–I’ve been doing hill repeats on the treadmill and choosing hilly routes for my weekend long runs–but I don’t feel like I am in shape to set a PR. Honestly, I’m not in the mood to push myself that hard for that long, but maybe I’ll find some race day mojo between now and then.
Good Luck Box Preview
As soon as I opened the box, I was impressed by the presentation!
And these shoelaces will look good in my new Mizunos.
“You got this!” is one of my race-day mantras,
and who doesn’t appreciate a lucky penny?
The contents of the box blew me away.
I’ve tried subscription boxes, and was lucky to like half of the contents, but I am thrilled with everything in this Good Luck Box. Who wouldn’t love a mini foam roller? Body Glide can be a runner’s best friend, and I know so many runners who rave about Balega socks!
As explained on the Good Luck Box website, the contents of each box is tailored to the event and will include racing products and nutritional items, race day essential items, race tips, running friendly recipes, and more. When ordering a box, you select whether the recipient is male or female, provide information on the race and their goal, and have an option to add a personalized message. I think this is such a good idea, I am making a list of friends I want to send some “good luck” before their spring races.
Monday: 45 minute full-body strength training workout.
Tuesday: 45 minute treadmill workout with incline intervals up to level 3 and speed intervals up to 7.0 mph.
Wednesday: 45 minute indoor cycling class.
Thursday: 5 mile run outside! I swapped my usual route with only one hill for a different route with lots of hills.
Saturday: 10 mile hilly run.
My Garmin VivosmartHR counted all those hills as 83 flights of stairs. 🙂
Sunday: 15 mile bike ride outside. We were planning on 25-30 miles, but the rain started a few hours earlier than predicted. Still, it was nice to get on my bike.
