Happy Monday! I hope you all had a nice restful weekend. I did. I got the chance to spend a day with my daughter’s shopping and just hanging out before they start school. I also went to yoga. I love yoga. I try to do hot yoga once a week and really miss it when I don’t do it.
One of my favorite things on Sunday besides going to church is running with friends. This Sunday I ran almost 9 miles and it felt great! Now I have to be honest I have been slacking a bit in my running. I stopped going to Orange Theory for the summer and I can tell! If you haven’t been to Orange Theory you need to try a class. It will definitely push you. So I started my membership up again and I am taking my first class since May this Friday. Man am I scared! It’s been a while. To prep myself I did a treadmill workout to get myself pumped and ready to go. I thought I would share this workout with you since it was a pretty good one. This workout can be done anywhere and requires no weights. I did a mix of outside running and treadmill running. I wore my heart rate monitor to make sure I was in the zones similar to what I would be in during an Orangetheory workout.
1 Mile Easy Run (note your pace)
- 10 Burpees
- 20 Push Ups
- 30 Full Sit Ups
- 40 Body Weight Deep Squats
Run 1 Mile (at a push pace, note your pace)
Push Pace is about 1-2 mph faster than your base speed for a normal run.
Repeat Bodyweight Workout From Above
Run 1 Mile (at a push pace, make sure this mile is faster than your second mile)
- Plank Jacks (30 seconds)
- Side Planks (30 Seconds on each side)
- Regular Plank (30 Seconds)
- Bicycle (30 Seconds)
Always finish with a cool down and a stretch. I did a quick 2 minute cool down jog and a few yoga flows and some yoga stretching at the end of this workout. It felt sooooo good!
Have a great week!
