RUNNING FOR BEGINNERS WORKOUT PROGRAM: 30 DAY BREAKAWAY
Have you ever wanted to run a 5K? For the first time ever, I'm bringing you a fitness program that’s designed to be taken outside! 30 Day Breakaway is a running and resistance-training program designed for rapid results that will allow you to build your running endurance to complete a 5K in 30 days!
I used to run for fitness before I had my kids. There are times I have been really missing it and I'm SO HAPPY to be able to incorporate some quick runs into my plan again soon - momma's back! Except this time I'll be learning how to run all over again and build up my endurance right along with you!
What Is 30 Day Breakaway?
If you've always wanted to become a runner but haven't had the proper guidance or support, this is for you! 30 Day Breakaway is a combination of quick & effective resistance workouts followed by interval running. The running can be done indoors or outdoors - and the program is literally for everyone no matter what fitness point you're starting from. It's actually geared toward beginners, using progressive intervals that are designed to push us for short bursts at a level that is right for us - whether that's a brisk walk, slow jog or steady run.
This combination of running & resistance training will help us shed fat as we build strength, endurance, speed, and total-body power. Even if it's raining or snowing outside, that's totally fine. We can use an indoor treadmill in our house or at the gym! Or we could substitute any run with the Rainy Day Cardio workout that is under 20 minutes.

Who Is 30 Day Breakaway For?
This is for the person who needs guidance in how to build a running foundation, for someone who wants to run their first 5K, or for the experienced runner who wants to improve their speed, endurance or strength. It's also a great choice for the runner who NEVER gets any type of strength training into their routine. Adding resistance training to a running program helps to burn more fat, too. And it’s a great option if you want to get outside for a change or if you're sick of your at home workouts.
What Kind of Workouts are Included in 30 Day Breakaway?
The workouts combine strength training and running 5 days a week. Each workout is 20-30 minutes long, and you’ll start by lifting weights.
You’ll start with walking or running 3x a week and build up to five.
The weightlifting sessions will either target certain areas or work your entire body.
Meta-Burn (this is a total body scorcher!)
You’ll do different running (or walking) workouts throughout the program to help you progress quickly. There is a video and audio version of the run you can watch or listen to, and you’ll focus on the time versus distance.
THREE WORKOUT CALENDARS
The Standard Calendar has you strength training 5x a week for 20-30 minutes and adding in a run 20-30 minutes.
The Advanced Runners Calendar is for current runners wanting to improve their commitment to running and strength training all 30 days.
The Time Crunch Calendar is for busy people wanting to either run or lift each day and be done in 30 minutes.

THE MEAL PLAN
Nutrition is the part that so many of us struggle with! No matter what, our food choices are what affects our ability to get into the shape we want to see and absolutely affects our overall health and wellness.
To see maximum results from any at home workout, you have to commit to a healthy diet. For true body-shaping results, you have to commit to replacing the sabotaging bad habits with healthier food choices in the kitchen, too. I recommend trying out either Ultimate Portion Fix (the color coded containers) or 2B Mindset nutrition plans with 30 Day Breakaway. Both nutrition programs come free when you purchase a Total Solution Pack and each offers a unique approach to weight loss that lets you eat the foods you love while helping you tackle emotional roadblocks that can keep you from getting results.
When you join our Fit Club using this workout program, you'll also receive a weekly meal plan from me every Saturday morning during the program to help you for the 30 days!
What Nutrition Do I NEED?
That means setting a solid foundation for your day with the help of Shakeology. You won’t just get premium proteins and essential vitamins and minerals; each scoop has antioxidants, pre- and probiotics, phytonutrients, digestive enzymes, fiber, and adaptogens. Shakeology packs all these premium ingredients into a tasty superfood shake to help you eat better, feel better, and fuel your body for recovery after those runs. My husband and I drink these every single day for our health.
I'm also a big fan of Beachbody Performance Energize and Recover.
I'm always looking to absolutely crush my weight training, get the most out of every run, and make sure my muscles are well taken care of after those intense sessions. The powerful trio of beta-alanine, quercetin, and caffeine in Energize has been shown to help boost energy and endurance, which are essential to optimizing your runs. And the 20 grams of critical protein in Recover, with BCAAs and pomegranate extract, help support your body’s recovery.
I will personally be using all of the above mentioned supplements as well as following the Ultimate Portion Fix plan, if you'd like to join me.
