Runtastic Fitness Review & Runtastic PRO App GIVEAWAY!

Disclaimer: This post is sponsored by Runtastic Fitness Channel thru my ambassadorship with Fit Approach and #sweatpink!  All opinions are 100% my own.

I am super excited to share with you everything I have learned thanks to Runtastic Fitness Channel!  You can check it out and subscribe here.  I will focus on all the cool things I have learned about 10K and how to approach them.  If you are anything like me, I am not a fan of the 5K or the 10K.  They are just too short and they leave no room for error.  So you might as well stack the odds in your favor and get a proper warm up.  A proper fueling plan.

For a proper warm up, I checked out "The Perfect Warm-up and Cool Down for a 5K or 10K Race."

And then I decided to create my own!  Check it out: Bloopers and all!

A video posted by Smitha (@runningwithsd) on

I hope I made you laugh!  But seriously, I learned a lot!  Like who knew quad stretches were a cool down.  And I learned how to do butt kickers after about 3 tries!

This video on What to Eat Before & After a 10K was super helpful too.  Helps you figure out what kind of calories you should be consuming at each step.

And Lunden (the host) is so easy to listen to!  In fact, she has a whole series on 10Ks.  How to train for them, what to eat, how to stretch.

A couple things about the Runtastic Fitness Channel.  There are so many amazing topics and videos, you really should subscribe.  Also, I would love it if you joined me on the 5 day Instagram Challenge coming up November 1-5.  Win prizes and learn about whole new ways to get FIT!

  1. Favorite way to get sweaty is running...which is why I really need to pay attention to these strength workouts. I tend to neglect them, even though I know they are important!

  2. lately, sculpt at core power.. I'm not a big sweater usually...

  3. My favorite way to get sweaty is power walking our hilly neighborhood with my hubby!

  4. I could go with the obvious (running) or the, ahem, adult answer. I am going to have to say dancing, though. It was my first love and still something I wish I did more often :)

  5. Running in my Spandits is the best! I have a 10K this weekend and you are right, no room for error!

  6. My favorite exercises are running and tennis. (CoreyOlomon at gmail dot com)

  7. High intensity interval training is my favorite! I love the variety and how quickly each exercise goes by!

  8. I love to go running and I am working toward a goal of running a 5K.

  9. My kids motivate me to job. My 11 year old son loves to run 5K races and encouraged me to "train" with him. I haven't been in the best shape since having my three children but I decided it is time to take him up on his offer. It has been hard but rewarding.
