Physical Challenge!

So with all the sinus issues I've had over the last few weeks that are finally starting to settle out, getting to the gym has been the last thing on my mind. This of course means I am not working on my goal of competing in a 5K this year... which is really annoying and frustrating. One of the blogs I follow - Fit This Girl - is offering a "Legs Do It" challenge for the month of February... and I'm signing up!

The basic premise of the challenge is simple - to take care of your legs! Here are the areas that are to be focused on at least 4x/week:
  • Strengthen: using weights with my legs: lunges, squats, dead lifts etc!
  • Sculpt: Step, lunge, & lift my way to sculpted legs
  • Stretch: Yoga, or stretching at home to help build lean muscles and reduce injury!
I need some motivation these days, and I am excited about this challenge! Not only will it help me to get back into a routine, it will help get my legs ready for more running.

Anyone else in?? Head on over to Fit This Girl's post to find out more.
