I did another arms day earlier in the week but misplaced my little sticky note. Luckily I think I'm the only one who cares about how many reps of each arm exercise I do. Also, since the Fit Abs Challenge ended, I'm not doing stuff for my core daily, but maybe a couple times a week.

Since I'm totally behind on my training schedule by about a week, I'm revamping my schedule for the last
Here's where I check off the Target Runs that I have completed... Not too bad! What's most important, I think, is that I have been hitting the target paces for these runs.
Who has a race coming up?
For me: Only 24 days til the Philly RnR half!
How's your training going?
