Usually when I say I am busy, I am just really behind on my Real Housewives episodes. But lately, I have actually been super duper busy. Good busy, but busy nonetheless. At some point, I lost my weekend motivation. I used to dominate my weekend workouts and slack off during the week but lately it’s quite the opposite. My only goal this weekend is to get in some quality workouts…and tailgating ;) Soon I will be back with a more normal schedule so that it will be somewhat easier to have consistent motivation…and I can finally figure out if Adriana is married or not.
Seriously, though, is she?!
Here’s a recap of my workouts from last week:
Chest+triceps+abs (4 minute ab routine)
Planned on running after volunteering with The Color Run…but ended up showering and watching college football all day instead. Oops.
Lately I have been going to the stadium and just running until I am tired, without any real plan and that’s exactly what I did Sunday. I ran up 4 aisles without any rest, took 2 minutes to catch my breath and drink water. After that I would stop to rest for 30 seconds after every other (sometimes every) climb. I also did jump squats in the band section, got lost and faceplanted. It was eventful.
2 mile shake out run+abs
I tried out a new ab workout that left me so sore I feared sneezing or yawning for days after. Also there are no crunches so that is fun:
Ok, so technically the last move has the word ‘crunch’ in it but I don’t consider it a crunch. Just go with it.
***There are links to videos/pictures of each move listed at the bottom of this post
4 miles @ 10min/mile with :30second strides (@ 7:30min/mile) every 2minutes during miles 2-3.5. The strides were tough (hello, I don’t do 7minute anythings) but I felt fantastic and could have run longer if I didn’t have to be at work. Stupid work, always getting in the way.
Later that night I did lots of tennis ball rolling
I couldn’t make it to the gym but wanted to get in some strength training so I did two OnDemand workouts for the upper body. One was 16 minutes, one was 5 minutes, both included crazy amounts of reps with 5 lb dumbbells and worked me good. Then I did the No Crunch Ab routine.
Non Crunch Ab moves:
- Mountain climbers
- Crossover mountain climbers
- Knee raises
- Side bends
- Front kicks
- Standing oblique crunch
What workouts are you loving? Hating?
I am loving running. Hating anything having to do with weight training.
Am I the only person still watching the Real Housewives of Miami?
