#WorkoutWednesday: Boot Camp Workout & Half Marathon Playist
You know those days that when it turns 5:30 p.m., you think back to what happened earlier in the day and it feels like a week ago? That was my day yesterday. I think that Daylight Saving time has something to do with it because it's now pitch black outside when I leave work, but it was just a long, strange day. I missed my train in the morning, a grumpy old man at CVS told me to drop dead around noon after I accidentally cut in line to buy soap and then a man approached me as I was rushing to catch my train to introduce himself and tell me that he was catching a train too but took the time to introduce himself (jeesh could you be a little more subtle, bud?) People, man. Lessons learned today: kick my ass into gear in the mornings, DON'T cut old men in line at the Pharmacy and maybe put my earphones in while I walk to the train. Let's get to the fun stuff - sweat!
Here's what my week of workouts looked like last week:
Teach 6 a.m. spin class
5K run along the river and a few stair sprints up the Art Museum steps. I loved this workout. I can't get enough of the fall weather and being outside after work. I mean, look at this view!
Early a.m. sculpt class
Rested and carbed up for the half marathon!
Philly Rock 'N' Roll Half Marathon! First time I've ever run 13.1.
I stretched a bit and put my mom through a little circuit workout. I didn't do all of it with her but it actually felt good to move my sore body! Then we went for about an hour and a half walk that was only supposed to be 30 minutes. Oh, and lots of eating.
It was a solid week of workouts, but I really am looking forward to getting back into more strength training and mobility. Running has taught me a lot but I'm totally ready to switch it up again.
I will leave you with this boot camp inspired workout that's adapted from my Super Circuits class & my half marathon playlist that I didn't even listen to during the half marathon! But I promise it's been on repeat otherwise.
Can you tell that circuit style workouts are my favorite? Best bang for your buck!
Have a great Hump Day, everyone!
Did you have a weird Tuesday, or am I the only one? Is Mercury in Retrograde or something?
What was your favorite workout of the week?
