It was a gorgeous day today, and there was no chance that I was doing an indoor workout and wasting the sunshine! Good weather and sunlight motivate me, and energize me. Jesse and I walked around, filming the workout, and take tons of great pictures, which I will share in another blog post.
The great thing about body weight workouts is you can take them anywhere! I used to be a flight attendant, and I quickly learned that if I wanted to stay fit it was up to me to figure out a way to workout on the fly. Not having a gym membership will never be an excuse for me, and I like it that way. It makes me responsible for my fitness.
Be sure to stretch before and after this workout. I stretched throughout, and did a bit of yoga (I was feeling inspired by all of the natural beauty around me). I even did a bit of meditation.
In addition to the workout video I decided to join Jesse on his light run today. I ran 6.5 miles, and I am happy to say that I got significantly faster on the last three miles instead of getting more tired. Okay, I’ll admit it, the first three miles were uphill, which may have had something to do with the speed difference. 😉 The whole run took 58 minutes exactly.
Anyway, enjoy the workout. I hope it’s a great start to your week!
