Moving, Shaking, and Eating Plans plus a New Workout for the Week

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 🙂

  • 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!

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

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 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?

  1. wow, that workout looks like it’s sure to be both interesting and tough. I love that it breaks it into 4 sections, I always do better with variety.

  2. Looks like a fun-filled workout week!

    I haven’t really tried any new workouts lately–might be time to mix it up a little and change that!

  3. I love that you acknowledge that you need to change it up sometimes to keep it interesting and keep results coming. I’ve been obsessed with free weights lately and concentrating on my running. Having a 5 mile a week goal has been helping, since running isn’t my strongest suit, but it’s something I like. The weights are working my body in a way running can’t. Both are encouraging when I start to see results or see me getting faster and hitting targets.

  4. I love playing with speed when on the treadmill, it keeps it exciting and makes the run go by faster..I’m a big fan 🙂

  5. The weather finally is permitting me to run outside again, but the next time I am inside on a treadmill I might have to try that out! I too need the variety otherwise I’ll get to bored inside. Great post!
