At the beginning of this week I posted my workout plans and I thought it would be fun to recap what I actually did… so here it goes:
– 1 mile warm up on tread (9:38mi)followed by the
– Sweaty Monsoon Workout from fitnessista.com:
For the 1 min push ups= 10 on toes and 25 on knees
1 min squats= 35
For the lunge/row/lunge/biceps combo I used 12lb weights (first time I’ve ever even picked them up!)
5 Rounds of AMRAPS –>without the pull ups because I smartly could not figure out how to set the pull up machine to my height. So after I set up all my stuff next to the pull up machine I had to move it all away, man I must have looked dumb!
For the running HIIT portion I did 6.5 for run, 7.0 for sprint, and 6.0 for recovery which totaled 1.62 miles in 15:00 mins. Then I cooled down for 3 mins at 4.0.
I skipped the cardio to have some time to work on some internship stuff and did a mini bootcamp workout from PBfingers.com at home in the office. Total time was 22:00 minutes.
(I follow a lot of fitness blogs and usually pin their workouts to try at a later date. My area of expertise stays with nutritious and delicious eating, so unless it’s on a treadmill I rarely every make up my own workouts. I leave that up to the experts and put my creative side to work in the kitchen!)
Arm Burner from the fitnessista.com and Zumba for 1 hour.
(The teacher for me makes all the difference when it comes to Zumba. I prefer hip hop styles and higher impact which is exactly what the instructor for Wednesday night brings… I LOVE her class!)
Gentle Hatha for Hips (from yogadownload.com)–> Ya for return of Yoga!
Bootcamp (1 hour) + 20 minute on bike
This was the first time I went and I really liked this class and I had a new victory because I mostly used the 10lb green weights the whole class! It takes a while for my heart rate to really get up so the cardio wasn’t quite as high impact as I would have liked so I jumped on the bike after class. However, I got really distracted with catching up with Nashville and let’s just say it was a pretty easy bike ride.
20 minute HIIT (30 secs/30secs) for 2 miles + Bodypump (1 hour)
I’m still new to body pump too and have a problem challenging myself with weight for fear of injury. However today I pushed myself a bit and got a much better workout!
1/2 Marathon Training
So I THOUGHT that I would be revealing my chosen 1/2 marathon training plan this weekend, but turns out I miscalculated and I won’t be starting to train for another couple weeks. This is probably for the best considering I’ll be traveling and other life hinderances. Anyways I’m eyeing Hal Higdon’s 1/2 marathon training plan with some modifications to make it my own.
Here is my workout plan for this upcoming week:
Hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend! Take a moment to jot down your workout plans for the week and let me know how it goes!
Questions of the day:
Had any awkward moments at the gym lately where you couldn’t figure out to work a new piece of equipment or struggled with a new exercise? Happens to me way to often! LOL
Do you like to workout on the weekends or do you prefer to rest?
For me it totally depends on what I have going on. If I’m traveling I don’t like to workout on days I have to be on a plane or driving long distances. If it’s not an actual “travel day” I love to try new workouts in new places, particularly running. It’s a great way to “site see” and get a workout in.
