Tonight I re-did an older workout: Love Handle Loser, Lower Ab Workout. Originally I did this workout with Cydney, and we filmed the workout as a tutorial. This time I switched it up a bit, and tried it out interval style. The original video has variations for all levels, so be sure to check it out. This is a fat burning core workout.
I have a confession to make. I wasn’t pushing as hard as I could during the intervals. After the workout I realized that if I’m going to truly go high intensity I need to amp up the volume a bit!
That was a good motivator for me as I headed out into the glorious sunshine (as it grows warmer you will continue to hear how much I love the sun. I can’t help it. It truly brings me joy!) I decided to do my run at a comfortable pushing pace. That resulted in me shaving 1 minute and 17 seconds off of my 3.5 mile run (as compared to a few days ago when I completed the same run). My slowest mile was an 8 minute, 39 second mile and totally uphill. The rest of my miles were between 6:56-7:47 pace.
Jesse was doing a hard run today so I was on my own. Even though he’s much faster than I am I find that I go much slower when I run with him. My theory is that it’s because I talk a lot more when I run with Jesse. When I run by myself I just go.
In honor of Earth Day I will be posting a vegetarian recipe. I am also doing some planting again this year (flower and vegetables). What are you doing for Earth Day?
Enjoy the workout!
