It’s workout time! Today’s workout is a quick, total body workout. It’s a great one to build strength and burn fat. Focus on using proper form, and check out the tutorial video if you aren’t sure what the exercises are.
Go at your own pace, but don’t be afraid to sweat and breath hard. Breaking through plateaus and building strength, requires you to push outside of your comfort zone. You train your mind and body to know how hard you are able to work.
This has been a really crazy week for us. We had a lot going on, so I was only able to film one new workout. It was a good one though! If you haven’t tried it yet you can find it here: Total Body Home Workout: No Equipment Exercises.
In much sadder news, our coach and running guru, Shep, lost his wife unexpectedly this week. She was an amazing person. If you would like to say a prayer, send some positive thoughts, or leave a message or encouragement for him he is on Instagram: @shep123run All of the running advice we share here has been learned from Shep, and he has coached Jesse since he was a high school Cross Country runner.
I ran with him yesterday, and Jesse is out running with him now, but I believe having a strong community of love can really help people get through the hard times.
I hope you all have a wonderful day today. Please hug someone you love extra close, or do a Random Act of Kindness in honor of Shep’s wife, Sharon. <3
