Do you ever have one of those days where you go pee and realize you put your underwear on inside out? Yep, that we me yesterday!
Apparently after getting home from a tough 5:30 a.m. cardio sesh I wasn’t too interested getting dressed properly. I got up at 4:30 and headed out the door by 5 to meet my favorite client. Morning workouts are my favorite because I always think I am crazy when I am going there and I always feel incredible after. The kind of workout high you can only achieve before the sun comes up.
Yesterday, like I said, was cardio. I really am not a fan. My legs are so short. At least that’s what I blame it on. Usually I am lifting heavy with clients. However, there is a place for cardio in everyones life. Getting your heart really pumping and keeping it there is good for the soul.
I was so pumped for this workout and, lets be honest here, I may have overestimated myself by just a little. Here is what we did:
Run 1 mile. 20 pushups, 20 squats, spider plank 20 to each side.
run 1/2 mile (at a faster pace). same set
run 1/4 mile (fastest pace). same set.
run 1/2 mile. same set.
run 1 mile.
Total: 3 1/4 miles, 80 pushups, 80 squats, spider plank 80 to each side.
In the middle I felt a little woozy. I haven’t ran 3 miles in months. Usually my cardio is more HIIT training or burpees. This was so good for me for a few reasons!
- I felt AMAZING all day yesterday.
- Major confidence boost. Knowing that I completed it with the times I had set for myself felt really good.
- Opens me up to trying new workouts.
- On days when you think you can’t, you get the strongest.
I am sure this workout will be making a return. Next time a little quicker (I have to out-do myself). until then, try it out and let me know how it goes!
I am strong. I am capable. I am powerful. I am beautiful.
