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

  • 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

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?
