Race Training~

“Running is the greatest metaphor for life, because you get out of it what you put into it.” -Oprah

Last Motivation Monday we challenged you to sign up for a race!! Whether it’s a charity walk, The Color Runs, a Tough Mudder, The Pink Ribbon races, a triathlon for a research fund, a local 5k, a 10k— it can be ANYTHING! Intimidated to do it on your own? Ask a friend to do it with you! We want to know what race you commit to training for. Tell us below! You can find a lot of races in your area at Active.com too.


Part of the Bikini Series is doing things you may have never thought you’d try or stepping out of your comfort zone.. are you up for the challenge?

Below are some awesome training programs we recommend~

PS- if you have done a race, we want to see your race pics!!!  We’re creating a board on Pinterest called ‘Tone It Up Girls in ACTION!’ We also want to see pics of you just working out everyday- doing your Beach Babe DVD, biking, working out at the gym- we want it all! :)

  • Karena trained me for my first Sprint Triathlon and I loved it!! We’re looking for another to do this summer.  We recommend this excellent 11 week program- Triathlon Program.  If you are challenging yourself to a longer distance triathlon, we love the programs that Beginner Triathlon offers :)
  • Going BIG!?  Marathon training is VERY INDIVIDUAL and you must listen to your body, but we recommend this training program.  Marathon Training

Since training is so individual, do you have a program you found and love?  Leave a comment below with your training program so we can all check them out too!

Don’t forget to order your new Perfect Fit Protein to recover from your training too! :)

Have you signed up here for the Bikini Series?  It’s not too late!

    I run a 10K with my dad every summer and I always do it in costume! You have to make your own fan base somehow!
