Fitness Friday & Ellie Ab Challenge

      1 Comment on Fitness Friday & Ellie Ab Challenge

I hope everyone had a happy and safe Halloween, though I’m sure for many of you, you celebrated last weekend or are planning to celebrate this upcoming weekend. It’s always so weird when Halloween is in the middle of the week, you never know what to expect.


My Halloween was rather laid back and rainy. I didn’t really know what to expect in terms of trick-or-treaters especially with the rain, but I had my own little treat last night so no complaints here.


Anyway, let’s get on to the Fitness Friday fun!



This week I started the Ellie Ab Challenge – really for no reason other than I ran across it and thought it’d be fun and give my abs a nice challenge.  So far, it’s held up to both.

So when you look into my workouts below and see “100 crunches” etc…that’s why.

I’m happy with my workouts this week but I’ve been reminded that it’s time to kick up my strength training again now that I’m not running as much or as long distances. But what I’m really excited about is the Hot Chocolate 5k I’m running with Amanda and Becky on Sunday! Because what part of running + chocolate + brunch with your friends doesn’t sound like fun?


Now, let’s get to the Fitness Friday party and link up your posts this week:



How was your Halloween?
