Because apparently I like torture…

…I’ve decided to revisit the thing that got all of this started in the first place:

Jillian Michaels’ 30 Day Shred.

Around this time last year, I was on Spring Break. I went to visit friends in Chicago and had a blast. And somewhere along the line something in my brain clicked. I can’t explain what it was or what set it off, but something happened. I got home and pulled out the DVD and did all 30 days of it without missing a day.

I met some great people via twitter, and I noticed that a lot of them did running. I found out about the Couch to 5K program and started that on July 1 (so yes, that is my runniversary!!). And the rest is history!

Now. I’m still going to be doing my running – never fear!! I do have the 10K training plan that starts next week, remember? But I’m adding in the 30 Day Shred.

Every day.

Let’s do this thing!!!

(expect whining during Level 2. I hate Level 2.)

  1. Hi Beth,
    Came across your blog via Runner’s World so wanted to check it out. Saw that you were a special ed teacher – my boyfriend teaches special ed as well!

    Good luck adding the 30 Day Shred into the mix with the running. I REALLY need to work on weights into my routine…I’m not very good at it so I tend to avoid it ha.


    • Thanks Rachel!

      I definitely know the feeling of not being good at weights. I’m only using 3 pound ones right now. I *might* try doing 5 days of each level at 3 and 5 at 5…but we’ll see.
