Why are we here? Why do we need each other?
It’s simple. We’re here because we do more when we’re not alone. When we have friends to motivate us and keep us accountable we do more than we would flying solo. It helps to have a plan and know what to do, but when we do it together, we do more!
We are more consistent. We go a little harder. We spend a little more time and put in a little more effort. We push each other and ourselves outside of our comfort zone. We get and we give motivation and accountability!
We are here because we are stronger together!
It’s summertime and we have vacations that keep us busy, the weather doesn’t always cooperate, we have fun things that come up and sideline our attempts to stay on track. But we need to keep moving forward!
How do we stay motivated? We must stay engaged! We use the friendships that we’ve formed to motivate us and keep us accountable! That’s what STTC is all about!
This month I am challenging you to stay engaged. Get your buddy group ready and have a plan to keep each other accountable with your running and your strength training. Keep your buddy group small because when it gets too big, people get lost and slip away. Tag your buddies when you get your workout done, even if it’s just part of the workout, because maybe you will inspire them to get up and get a little bit done too.
You signed up to get stronger and run faster and along the way we’ve become friends through accomplishments, struggles and mutual workout rituals. Many of us will be lifelong friends. Let’s use the power of our friendships to make the first month of the 2nd half of 2019 the best month this year! 😉
July 2019 Challenge: #StrongerTogether
Our July Calendar is simple and straightforward. Everything is included on the calendar except for ITB and Stiletto Routines which I will add links for on those days.
We have a great Monday workout that includes the option to use dumbbells, switch out for heavier weights by using barbells or opt for the Hip Dip Workout which is a perfect workout if you tend to see your hips dropping in running photos! Not sure what I’m referring to? Let’s look at some race or running photos of yours and I’ll tell you!
On Mondays, do what’s right for you, but don’t always choose the easy way out and push yourself to go a little heavier if you can!
You’ll also see I switched up the days a bit so Monday and Thursday are Hips, Glutes and Legs, Tuesdays and Fridays are Core and Arms. We have short quick workouts on the weekend and, of course, we’ve got Self Care/Mental Day on Wednesday to keep that mid-week break. Move that day around as it makes sense for your schedule and use it wisely! 😉
Buddy up Crew. It’s time to get to work!
This month’s theme — #StrongerTogether — is what will get us through the month completing the most days, keep us on track and accountable, so let’s take it seriously and get our buddy team ready for a great month of strength and running!
Ready to jump in for June and get stronger with us? Want to run faster and prevent injuries along the way? Now is a great time to join us and find accountability and motivation along with a full month of workouts designed specifically for runners!
