Today is Day 5 of my 6-week workout program. Today is a Rest Day or an Easy Run Day. For those of you looking for an active rest day, I have posted a yoga video below.
This workout schedule incorporates 1-2 rest days per week. Listen to your body to determine which option is best for you.
If you choose to run, be sure to maintain an easy pace. This means you should be able to carry on a conversation.
Week 1 Schedule:
1. Lower Body Workout + 30-Minutes of Cardio
2. Core Sculpt Workout + Interval Cardio
3. 30-Minutes Moderate Intensity Cardio
4. Arms/Upper Body & Interval Cardio
5. Rest Day or Easy Cardio Day-(Optional: Long Run for Runners)
6. Full Body Workout + Walk
7. Rest Day
Enjoy today’s workout! Get ready for a tough workout tomorrow!

Went for a 4 mile run. Totally can feel that Fall is in the air.
I generally run everyday during my lunch break but this past week I have been really pushing myself on r the treadmill at the gym, plus adding the Melissa’s new 6 week challenge in the mix and my husband has been home nights now that he isn’t currently working (past three weeks) so we are taking our family out for walks through town after dinner; so I am really feeling it in my upper calves and thighs. I did want to go and do an interval run/walk at the gym but I decided to take my afternoon off and only go for our nightly family walk.
very good information and demonstration. thank you once again for all of the time and effort you put into this for everyone Melissa. Maverick is a cutie! I love all his little baby noises.
