Hey friends! Remember how I mentioned my work-life is bananas right now? Well, things are still crazy and will probably stay crazy for the remainder of the summer. Being busy is a good problem to have, but man… I’m tired.
Enough of my complaining! I thought today would be a great time to share some of my recent workouts. Running is still my #1, but with my hectic schedule, it’s just not happening as much as I would like. Instead, I’ve been trying to incorporate more strength and HIIT to keep my workouts quick and my mind busy. From last Saturday to today, here is my week in workouts.
6 mile run that included a 2 mile warm-up, 6x400m sprint with 400m recoveries, and a 1 mile cool-down
Rest… Unless cleaning all day counts as a workout? 😉
-1 minute each of the following planks: Center (high), center (elbow), right, left, center with hip drops, center with knee crunches, reverse
-20 minute AMRAP: 20 kettle-bell swings, 20 push-ups, 40 walking lunges (20 each leg)
-Same plank routine as Monday
-5 RFT: 7 push-ups, 20 jumping lunges (10 each leg), 16 kettle-bell swings
-3 mile run
-33 squats with 10lb dumbbells
-1 minute plank holds: center, right with 5lb weight in top hand, left with 5lb weight in top hand
Saturday, 6/17 (Today):
I am hoping for a solid run after work, but we’ll see what the weather and my energy levels allow.
There you have it! Amidst a 60-ish hour work-week, I was able to get in 4 solid workouts. I don’t normally take 3 rest days, but my body really needed it.
Have a great rest of your weekend!!
