Let’s get right to it, shall we?
Last Wednesday, I woke up feeling less enthused about my workout. I had been quite sick the night before, and still felt a little crummy, so I knew the intense workouts I had planned wouldn’t be the best. I wanted to get a sweat session in, and wanted something fast, so I put this together! It is Tabata style, which makes the time fly by, and it’s a full body routine so you work all the muscles.
Remember, Tabata means you work for 20 seconds, have a 10 second rest, and repeat that for 4 minutes. There are 5 rounds to this, so it would take 20 minutes without breaks, or about 25 minutes with some breaks.
Here are the links to the exercises:
Front kick with punch (punch with the opposite leg that you kick out)
Deadlift with row
Today is also Treat Yourself Tuesday! I haven’t participated in the last few weeks, and I knew it was time I treated myself to something I need. I guess that isn’t really treating yourself, but it worked for me. Check out Becky’s blog to find out more!
With the colder weather approaching, and having a race this weekend in the cold, I knew I needed to invest in some running tights. I have been using my leggings, which have kept me warm, but they were starting to wear, and I would rather save them from running!
I mentioned yesterday that I headed to Tanger Outlets on Friday, with this specific purchase in mind. They have so many fitness shops, but I first went into Old Navy. I’m not sure if you know, but Old Navy actually has a great line of Activewear. I was surprised at first, but I have bought numerous things from them over the past few years and love them all. Imagine my surprise when I found compression running tights for $19! Steal. They were on sale, so I immediately tried them on, and fell in love.
I went running in them on Saturday, and felt a huge difference. I didn’t notice while I was at the store that they were compression pants, but I can really feel the difference. They kept my lower body warm in the 30 degrees, and I was comfortable the entire run! Best. purchase. ever.
And because they were so awesome on that run, I came home and ordered another pair online. They are actually have 25% off until October 30 online so check it out!
