Wednesday Workout Recap #4

OUTFITT class was awesome AGAIN this morning! It was only about 55 degrees, which we thought was pretty cool, but BOY did it help when we started pounding the pavement…

Coach Mike is up on the left. He’s AWESOME. Really knows how to layout a workout and is always keeping us on our toes with new drills and running workouts!

This was us at the end of the workout. Hands on hips, everyone heaving, exhausted. SUCH a great class!

We did lots of stair climbs, worked with stretchy bands for upper body work, and did quite a few hill sprints around Milwaukee. GORGEOUS day for a killer SWEAT SESH.

Learning how to take selfies 😉

I loooooove creating my own interval training workouts outside. Using hills, stairs, and body weight exercises, you really can create an intense, all-body, effective fat-burning workout. And it’s fun!!

I found a really great article on The Greatist about how often we should do interval training workouts. Depending on your level of regular athletic activity, the amount you should do ranges from once a week to 3-4 times per week. I loveeee interval training for muscle-building, fat-burning, and cardio endurance for my long runs for marathon training. Take a look and try it sometime for yourself!

How Often Should I Interval Train?

Last night, we decided to make a super easy yet DELICIOUS dinner… egg sandwiches. Really can’t go wrong here. And it really helps that I LOVE EGGS.

Patrick: “Well, that’s a lot of eggs… but I know one of us will eat them all!” – he knows me too well… 😉

Finished product, BEFORE I doused it in salsa/ketchup. NOMZ.

Went for a short walk last night too, to stretch out our sore legs. Obviously, handstands happened.

And my yoga pose for this morning was pretty tricky, but I ALMOST nailed it!
