Be-You-tifully Fit: The unwanted workout

20140730-170835-61715685.jpgWell well well…what a month it has been!  After a month of an upper respiratory infection and loads of allergies, I have found an ab workout that I never wanted but holy moley it has worked!  I have been trying to manage keeping up with marathon training and the final few pound loss before my goal.  It seems like I was meant to have one last hurtle!

Otherwise I have made time to head back to yoga for the day before the long run.  I loved the way it felt when training before so if it works, just go with it!
