4-miles run @ 9:08 pace plus 1/4 of Brooke's Deck of Cards Workout. I couldn't get through the entire thing. This is how I felt each time I pulled a heart card.
I have to cheat and do "girl" pushups because I can only do like 5 regular pushups without dying, but that's going to be something to work on!
A HIIT cardio workout I found on YouTube and the Day Three Booty Circuit. This was one of my favorite workouts of the week. Gotta keep that booty lookin good ;)
I only had time for 1.5 (the font makes it look like it says 15, but its one (point) five) mile run, but it was awesome because I was under 9 minutes for the first time in a while! 1.5 miles at 8:28 pace! Plus Day Four Ab Circuit. I loved the ab circuit and it got me incredibly sweaty! I'm hoping this will be me the next time I get on a plane in August:
I switched it up that day and actually did the circuit workout before I did a cardio workout, where I rode the bike for 30 minutes, alternating resistance. This circuit was all about legs and I wore shorts that were a little too short, so the guy stretching behind me probably enjoyed himself every time I did lunges or bent over to check the next exercise. You're welcome, sir. This is how I felt the rest of the afternoon, even though I thought I was "taking it easy" on the bike:
As you may know, Saturday I did six miles and felt the worst. Then I spent the rest of the day laying by the pool and swimming. There were no challenges on Saturday or Sunday, so I just did cardio!
Rest day. Beach and nap when it started to rain, then homework the rest of the day.
It may be silly or coincidental, but this week I have already been feeling better about my workouts, I have had more energy, and I've been hungrier. I have been really, really, hungry. But this has been helping with my goal for this month of listening to my body's hunger signals and eating when hungry versus on a schedule.
There's still time to sign up for Brooke's challenge, so head over to her page and check it out! You don't have to be a blogger!
