Are you ready to workout today? I sure am! I got in a great run yesterday (over 4-miles), and I am ready to challenge my body with a HIIT workout today.
Today’s workout will take 21-Minutes per round. You can go through it once, or repeat it if you want a longer/more intense workout. For this workout I used a jump rope (you can do rope less jumping or substitute high knees if you don’t have one). I also used dumbbells, if you don’t have any you can do the exercises with body weight. Finally, grab a chair or bench, something you can put your feet up on.
I won’t be able to do this workout until later this evening, but I will get it in. Maverick has his first baby swim lesson today. It’s a parent/baby class. He loves water, so hopefully he enjoys the pool. We also have another baby’s birthday party to attend.
I mentioned that I am training for a Half Marathon, so I am really trying to focus on getting my runs in. It’s so much easier when the weather is nice-cold makes me want to stay warm in my house in 10 layers with knee high socks on. I was less consistent this week with the return of the cold, but I still got most of my training in.
We have a treadmill, so I really have no excuse for missing workouts, but I much prefer running outside. I do have some great treadmill workouts that I can start incorporating to keep things interesting. I have also been running without music, to get myself back in sync with my breathing and just focusing on the experience of running. For my outdoor runs I am typically running with the baby, Jesse, or friends, so I don’t listen to music on those runs either.
I hope you enjoy today’s workout! Let me know how it goes, how you feel, and what your training is like.
