Thank you all for your sweet comments yesterday! My knee is feeling better. It actually was fine when I woke up yesterday and then got a bit worse throughout the day, so definitely more rest is needed!
This week I want to link up with Jill Conyers, & Jessic Joy for The Fit Dish, which is perfect since I share new workouts every Tuesday! I thought it would be fun to join in on their topic this week which is, “Does your mind wander? What do you think about when you run or workout?”
Running is my me time, or working out in general is my “me time.” I love having that time just to myself and not having to think about the to do list at home. With that being said, I typically just let my mind go and sometimes I wander, and sometimes I really think about things. There are times when I think of new workouts, or think of what fun things I have coming up. Some days I just take in the nature I am running through and all the beauty it has to offer!
There are many times when I just spend time thanking God for all I have, or taking that opportunity to pray about whatever is going on. It really just depends, but I never go into my run with the intentions to think about anything! Sometimes I just listen to the music playing!
And with that, let’s move on to a new workout!
I did this workout last week and just loved it! I forgot how much fun I have including running into my workouts, and not making it my sole workout.
The Calorie Crusher Workout:
This Calorie Crusher workout does just that. You will be running 3 miles (or more!) and including some strength within it. Here’s the deal: run the first mile at your usual pace. Get off the treadmill (or off the road!) and complete the strength segment. Hop back on the treadmill, but bump up your speed 0.2 mph and repeat strength. Do this one more time, including the treadmill speed 0.2 mph again. You will definitely be feeling it, but that’s what will crush your calories! Of course, you don’t have to run with this workout; you can walk it, or use go on any machine for the time it would take you to run a mile (or approximately 8-10 minutes!).
