Today was a great workout day for me. I ran, and I went through the workout that I have posted in the video below.
Today I ran a total of 8.1 miles. I did a 5K (3.1 miles) on the treadmill in 22 minutes and 28 seconds, and then I ran 5 more miles, which took an additional 40 minutes. I like to get longer runs in on Sundays. Typically I go outside and run, but I just couldn’t make myself go out into the cold today. On day’s like this owning a treadmill is very useful.
I also did pull-ups today. I did a set of 3, 2, 1, and 5. On the first three sets I focused on lowering myself slowly in order to build additional strength for pull-ups. It is easier to lower your body, than it is to lift it, so using this technique can help you increase your strength. I also did Australian pull-ups. My pull-up bar can drop down so you can hold onto it in a reverse plank, and then lift your chest to the bar. I have done this exercise in a few videos with my dip station (also called a reverse push-up), but I will be sure to film a new workout soon that incorporates this exercise.
I went through the workout below twice. If you aren’t able to get in a run, you can choose one of my cardio workouts, jump rope, or go for a walk.
I hope everyone has a wonderful evening. See you tomorrow with a new workout!
