One Month Down: Week Four

One month into 2016 and I am on track for my 1000 miles in 2016. It has not necessarily been the easiest month for running for me. So far I have battled with a little bit of scheduling issues, injury, and the drive to get into a routine. Setting all those things aside, it has been a pretty awesome first month of pushing myself to run every single day. I have learned that I need to stretch more, run on the treadmill less, and continue to not make excuses.

This upcoming month I want to focus on morning yoga, healthy eating, and exploring winter running in Minnesota. I usually wake up at 6:00 AM to get ready for work and head out. This month I want to entertain the idea of waking up at 5:00 AM and doing yoga. I found a YouTuber named Adriene who has a yoga channel called Yoga With Adriene. She has a playlist called 30 Days of Yoga which I am going to be following for my “Yoga Mornings”.

Food and nutrition is always part of the conversation when it comes to any kind of exercise or workout. I am going to focus on clean eating that has added vitamins and proteins instead of fats. Also, I am a huge snacker so I am going to look at new and healthy ways to snack.

Minnesota is an amazing state that offers urban and natural views and trails for running. Being based in Minneapolis, I have miles of trails that I utilize all summer long. Unfortunately, I have never been much of a winter outdoor runner but this month I am going to change that. I am looking to throw on my sweatshirt, put on the long johns and head outdoors!

Stay tuned for updates about yoga, healthy eating and winter running! If you have any suggestions for any of my February topics please comment below and I would love to read your suggestions. Continue to follow my The 1000 In 2016 theme and check me out on my social channels!
