Happy (early!) Valentine’s Day! J
Hopefully tonight’s workout will leave you feeling strong and sexy, and that feeling will last until tomorrow.
It’s a quick intense workout tonight. After I finished this one I hopped on the treadmill and did 2 miles in 14 minutes and 40 seconds. It was a nice working pace, but I know I could have been going faster. The point was to get about 15 minutes of fairly intense cardio after the workout. If you don’t have a treadmill, or don’t want to run outside some other options include: jump rope, mountain climbers, high knees, or the cardio portion of any of my other workouts. Bombshell Butt Cardio
This workout was tough, but I felt great as soon as it was over! Enjoy your Valentine’s Day, and be sure to take a moment and make someone feel special. To me this day isn’t about gifts or candy, it’s about love and appreciation. So let someone know how much you appreciate them, and I hope someone makes you feel that way too.
Have a good night,
