Quick Countdown Workout




It was one of those days – I just couldn’t convince myself to go to the gym. I knew I wanted to be active but just didn’t feel like facing the treadmill lines and stinky mats.

On days like these I like to work my creative juices and come up with my own workout circuits to keep things interesting. Here’s what I decided to do tonight (while watching an episode of Jeopardy – Teacher’s Tournament in my basement ;)):

Fitness Friday 6/15

A recap of this week’s efforts to maintain a strong, healthy body.

: Ran the Joe Plant Memorial 5k with a PR of 25:19.

Sunday: A leisurely 10-mile bike ride downtown and back for lunch with some friends. 30 mph wind gusts quickly squashed the idea of maintaining a good speed.  Also did a quick 15 minute run with the dog in the late afternoon. I wore my Vibrams for the first time in a while just for something new.

P90X Shoulders & Arms. This felt GOOOOD. It’s been far too long since I have included regular lifting days in my workout regimen, as Tri training has taken up all my time with swimming, biking, and running. Felt awesomely sore for the next 2 days.

5.6 mile run around NE Minneapolis. This was a planned rest day (happy hour, what can I say)…but it was just too beautiful outside to resist.

Rest day – spent time with family and attended the premiere of our Sis and Bro’s film, Where the Yellowstone Goes.

Thursday: Bodyworks plus Abs class at LA Fitness. Shoulders, Biceps, triceps, abs, lunges squats, flys, etc. etc. 

How did your workouts go this week?  Are you meeting your fitness goals?
