Hey kids! You may have noticed that I changed my layout- if you did NOT notice and you’re a regular here, well…I’m surprised you’re able to read this 😉
I have wanted to change the layout for a while and just finally bit the bullet! Let me know what you think…unless you hate it- then go away. I kid. Constructive criticism is good.
I think I finally got my workout mojo back this week. Typically what happens after a half marathon race, is that as soon as I finish the race I’m planning which one I want to do next. Then the next day I want nothing to do with running and I want to quit running for good and become a professional potato chip/frozen yogurt tester.
My workout funk lasted a little longer this time. I mean, I definitely have been working out, I just haven’t had the desire and I haven’t been pushing myself until this week.
How do I get out of that workout funk? I try to surround myself with people who love working out and work hard! I read blogs, check out Instagram, read magazines, etc. Eventually I come back around.
Monday: 3 miles jog + abs
Tuesday: Light weights/conditioning (Arms + abs)
Wednesday: Heavy weights/strength training (Legs + abs + tiny bit o arms) + 15 min elliptical
Thursday: 5 mile run
This past week has been 95+ degrees F over here. This means I don’t run at lunch or after work because it’s just too freaking hot for me. My only other option is running on the ole mill, or early AM runs.
Yesterday I met up with my BFF near my work (she lives close to there) at 5:55 AM so we could run together! Yes, when my 5 AM alarm clock went off I wanted to throw it in a blender. But then I remembered I get to hang out with a friend and I popped out of bed! We were done by 6:50 and it felt so good! Chatting and catching up on life is the best way to workout.
Today is a rest day. Tentatively- Saturday will be a run with speed work and Sunday will be a long, easy run.
Do ya like the new layout?
How do you get out of workout funks? Please give us tips!
Anyone run with friends this week?
