Chicago Marathon Training: Week 2 Day 2

Yesterday was a cross training day so I did Leg and Ab stengthening. Today I had a 5 Miles Speedwork and I also tried out a new Ballet DVD that I got called “Element: Ballet Conditioning”. It is 51 minutes long and focuses on various parts of the body. I did the first two chapters (30 mins) that focused on the thighs and glutes. I enjoyed being reintroduced to the basic movements and felt it in all of my muscles. I think this video will be a great addition to my routine.
