You guys, I’m typing this up and it’s snowing outside. SNOWING! What! It’s spring and I’m over it. Instead of complaining, let’s talk about sweat, aka, my workouts last week
Tuesday: Cardio Sculpt Ended up switching up my entire workout schedule last week and did my 4 miles on my schedule.
Wednesday: Did the workout below Check it out, it’s a great one!
Thursday: Ran 5 miles. Ugh, on the treadmill. However! I woke up early and got it in before work. You guys, I’ve been so bad at this. Thankfully, I managed to get up and it felt GREAT! I loved having it done for the day
Friday: Off! Moved Matt, but let’s be real, I sat on the couch. Anywayyy it was a busy day that I couldn’t get a workout in anyway.
Saturday: LONG run!! I know, it was supposed to be Sunday, but why not screw up the entire first week of training! I did 7 miles. I’m really trying to slow my long runs down. I know you are supposed to slow them down by 1-2 minutes per mile, but it’s harder than you’d think. I like to finish and know the pace, not to mention I like to know how long I’ll be running based on my usual times. However, I really did feel great this entire run. The first 1.5 miles I ran by myself which was about a 9:10 pace. I ran to the end of the park and met my mom where we did 4 miles together. The pace was definitely 10:xx something. I didn’t necessarily try to make it that slow, but it was the first run my mom has done in 3 weeks so I was still impressed with her time! I then ran back to my car (1.5 miles) at 8:45-9 minute pace.
Sunday: Unplanned rest day, but welcomed.
Monday: Bodysculpt. Gotta get those muscles somehow
Total miles for the week: 16.
Total for the year: 141.47 miles
Now for a great workout! You know how some days you want a workout, but don’t feel like doing high intensity? That’s how I was on Wednesday. I just didn’t have the energy to do plyometrics, or jumping, so I went with this one.

With this workout, you have four Tabatas. Each Tabata is 4 minutes long, and with a minute break in between, you will be done in 20 minutes! You will complete each Tabata alternating the exercises. You will need a set of dumbbells for this workout. For full video demonstrations, check here.
