Is it just me or has this week actually flown by?
Thirsty Thursday anyone?
HA — ohhh the college days. Now, I’m lucky if I’m awake beyond 1030, let along going out to party on a Thursday by 1030. I just thought that was WAY too funny not to share with you all when I was looking up Thursday images. 🙂
Biggest Lesson From Last Night
And thank me later.
I’m thinking the perfect running fuel?
Ok maybe that’s an exaggeration, but they could work.
Thank you Halloween season for bringing out the best surgary treats for the children in all of us 🙂
Even though I went to bed in a starburst candy corn/sugar coma, I woke up this morning well rested and ready to get a work out in. This morning called for strength, so I hit the gym ready to get pumped up (Arnold anyone?)
Work Out Of The Morning: Strength
- 20 minutes warm up on the bike (about 7 miles)
- Intervals one 1 minute strength work out, 30 seconds jumping jacks for 20 minutes. Think:
- bicep curls
- lateral raises
- incline sit ups
- side plank
- chest press
Etc. . . until I hit 20 minutes. So I’d do one of these exercises, then split up the exercises with 30 seconds of jumping jacks to keep my heart rate up.
Honestly — this was the toughest strength workout I’ve done in a long time. I LOVED it! 🙂
Then — because I still had a few minutes, I did a few arm workouts on the scary machine (standing row and chest press)
100 incline sit ups
And a few minutes on the leg press.
I left a sweaty beast, and loved it 🙂
And now — it’s time to shower up and head into work for my late start morning. Whoooot. 😉
