Workout Recap (week of 6/15-6/21)

The end of the week has come and gone once again. This week was iffy. I did some workouts and of course running, I just wasn’t feeling this week. I tend to get this way at the end of the month. My legs are tired from all the running I’ve been doing, as you know I am doing the #June100Mile challenge. I went to the gym once this week. 

Sunday, June 15- I woke up early and actually did a sweet 10 mile run. 

Monday, June 16– I decided to rest after the 10 mile run I did the day before.

Tuesday, June 17- I ran 4 miles around my neighborhood. Only intended to do 3 but was feeling good.

Wednesday, June 18- Went to the gym with my bestie and we did 2 workouts. I will share with you in a few.

Thursday, June 19- Ran 3.5 mile with some friends, changed up the scenery. 

Friday, June 20– Rest day

Saturday, June 21- 7 mile run

Every waking day is a mental mind game I tend to fight. Go to the gym go workout, no don’t go to the gym, don’t workout. I’m working on it. I just need to break that barrier. I mentioned on Wednesday that I did 2 workouts with my bestie at the gym. Here is what we did. 

Workout #1

I will be brutally honest on this one. We made it to the 10 minute mark which was round 1. We couldn’t go any further. We decided to change my interval timer and just lower the seconds down and moderate a few of the workouts. We did 30 second intervals the 2nd time around. It was much better but still tough. We had to change the jump lunges due to me being a runner I did not want to jack up my already soon to be bad knees. We did regular lunges instead. As a beginner doing this workout. I would have started with a lower number of seconds. May start at 20-30 seconds with the 10 seconds rest in between and once you feel like your not working hard enough bump it up and slowly work your way up.

The second workout we did involved a treadmill. Our friend who is personal trainer recommended this awesome workout. This workout is for endurance, cardio and leg workout all in one. 

Workout #2 

30 Minute Treadmill Workout

(between each set you jump off the treadmill and do a jump squat)

0-5 min, 0 inline, 3.5 speed (warm-up)

20 jump squats

5-10 min, 15 incline, 3.0 speed

20 jump squats

10-15 min, 8 incline, 3.5 speed

20 jump squats

15-20 min, 0 incline, 4.0 speed

20 jump squats

20 jump squats

After I finished this workout I felt great, it loosened up all my muscles in my legs, especially after doing the higher inclines. I would definitely add this workout into my routine every once in a while. Granted I was very sore a few days after but it surely worked your legs and endurance. Well until next weeks recap. Hope everyone has an awesome week.
