Since I missed my usual Sunday training recap due to fixing up my blog, I wanted to share it today.
Sunday: 3 mile run. Easy run on the treadmill at a slower pace just shaking out my legs.
Monday: Bodysculpt. I focused on the full body again by breaking it up into different body parts and working them all out.
Tuesday: 6 mile run. Oh man, this one was rough. Fall weather disappeared and it was 82 degrees when I left work. There were also winds of 25 mph and gusts well over 35mph. I decided I needed to do it just in case the race day is windy. I went 2 miles down the park and had some wind but thought it wasn’t so bad. Then, I turned around, hahah. It was crazy windy, but it honestly helped because of the heat. Anyway, I completed all 6 and was pretty dead after, lol.
Wednesday: Interval Sculpt. I was not feeling the workout. Honestly, even fitness instructors struggle to work out some days! I was most definitely not interested in it, but once I started, I was totally fine- that’s how it always is!
Thursday: Well, this run didn’t work out so well. I was supposed to do 7x800s. My legs were feeling tight and I just had in my head all day I wasn’t feeling it. Obviously that mind set took over. I started running and made it to the half mile loop to turn around and go to the other way, but it just wasn’t good. My legs were hurting so bad, my IT band was aching, and I just knew I had to stop. I ended at my car and so it was 1 mile. I came home and did the Hamstrings Yoga video online and it helped tremendously!
Friday: After running a ton of errands after work, I decided to go to the trail to get my long run in instead of Saturday. I knew our day would be busy and my legs felt a ton better so I went for it. I did 6 on the trail in beautiful weather with a slight wind but nothing unmanageable.
Saturday: Nada. Rest day.
Sunday: 4 mile run in the morning. My legs hurt at first but once they loosened up about a mile in, I was fine!
Total miles run this year:–
I’m really digging the Fall themes going on on PicMonkey, in case you couldn’t tell!
Strength and Cardio Tabata Workout
Tabatas are my favorite! I love pairing moves together and working hard at them. They are such an effective workout and seriously can leave you sore! This week, this strength and cardio Tabata workout focuses on just that: strength and cardio. For example, the first tabata is strength, and the second is cardio. You will repeat the two exercises 4 times, for four total minutes. Take a 30 second break before moving on to the next Tabata. It should take you a little less than 20 minutes. Another quick workout to get in! All you need is a pair of dumbbells to complete the workout.
Remember to check here if you aren’t sure of the moves (I do have a few videos that will be going up today!).
