Still struggling with the Monday time change crud. Anyone else? Whomp whomp.
To try and keep myself upbeat and motivated, let’s chat about the week ahead, shall we 🙂
Workout Plan For The Week
- Monday: PM Yoga Class
- Tuesday: AM Run (likely treadmill)
- Wednesday: Pilates Bar class (so excited)
- Thursday: Rest/Walk Day
- Friday: AM Run
- Saturday: Likely skiing
- Sunday: Longer run (5-6 miles)
I have hopes to squeezing in more strength training this week as well — in addition to what I have posted — by way of NTC App. I did quite a bit this weekend and just LOVE it. Can’t get enough!
Meals for the Week
- BBQ Chicken quesadillas
- Salad with grilled chicken
- Open face sammies
The only meals we have groceries for as of right now. . . but we are SWIMMING in goodies and sweets, so you know I’m a happy girl.
New Workout To Try
I’ve got a new treadmill workout that I am going to try this week that I want to share with you all. After getting back outdoors and remember how much more enjoyable the outdoors are — I am going to need something to keep me motivated on the ol’ machine.
Welp, in searching the wonderful pinterest (Follow me on pinterest), I found just the motivation I needed. Check her out
|6:30-7:30||5.0||0.0||Begin Incline Run Section|
|11:30-12:30||3.0||0.0||End Incline Run Section|
|12:30-13:30||3.0-4.0||0.0||Begin Sprints and Walks Section|
|17:00-18:00||3.0||0.0||End Sprints and Walks Section|
|18:00-19:00||6.0||0.0||Begin Endurance Section|
|23:00-24:00||3.0||0.0||End Endurance Section|
|24:00-24:30||6.0||0.0||Start Flat and Hills Section|
|28:30-29:00||3.0||0.0||End Flat and Hills Section|
Note: this workout is geared toward experienced runners. Play around with the speeds as neccessary, but during the sprinting sections (anything noted on the chart above a speed of 8.0), allow yourself to be challenged at your max capacity.
I found this on Fitsugar.com and know that it is exactly what I need to switch things up. It looks TOUGH, and I do plan to change up the speeds and incline a little (our treadmills don’t go above 12), but generally plan to keep it to this plan. Looks good, right?
Question of the Afternoon: What is a new workout that you’ve tried and loved lately?
