Guess what I’m still here, 3 days in a row! Starting to get back to “real” running now that the leg is better. Still following with my sports chiro monthly and focusing on strength with lower mileage. I am happy to be back into some speed work and looking a forward to working with a new coach (other than myself!) and improving my running. I decided that I need a change, I written my own plans for years but think after my year of injury I need to change things up a bit. I should be stronger and faster now with all the strength and core training but I’m not thanks to injury. I know with a change in training and injury free I can get to where I want to be.
Thursday morning I grabbed my cute new BAMR band and hit the treadmill nice and early for some intervals. Tracy has me running less miles but high intensity and I’m loving it! So how’d it go: After an easy 10 min warm up my ¼ mile repeats were:
1:30 (Had to try with the treadmill set at top speed!)
The benefit of the treadmill is consistency! I’m never this close on the track.

I felt great, legs got some speed and I was ready for the day. Loved the headband, I have such an issue with other ones staying in place but this was great, didn’t move, no headache. The downside, I think I may be losing it to my child! O loves the BAMR band too, she actually wore it before I even had the chance. The designs available are great, I was thrilled to receive 2 Disney themed bands with my upcoming Dopey Challenge they will be perfect. Headbands get a lot of use in the winter around here since I’m normally a hat runner but with indoor spin, treadmill runs, elliptical and yoga these will be great.
Guess what I BAMR Bands is giving away a headband of your choice to one of my readers!
