This week has been a serious reality check in regard to my working out! While I do enjoy my running and have a half on the horizon with my co blogger on August 17, I have been neglecting strength work because, well, I am lazy about it. SO I nixed that behavior and hopped to it this week! I ended up doing FIVE rounds of this baby on Tuesday instead of three because I didn’t feel like three was enough:
I was incredibly sore yesterday but the wonderful Sara @ fit.fun.femme invited the crEATures to workout yesterday! Duh, of course we’re in! We met up at the lovely Piedmont Park for some fun!
I made sure to harass them while they planked….
And I had to laugh, because, well, we took so many pictures that it was more like a photography meet up than a workout meet up. Either way, it worked. Loving Sara’s faces in BOTH planks! Too cute girl!
We all collaborated and came up with this challenge of a workout:
Burpees will be the end of me. For sure.
If I wasn’t sore before, I surely am now. But, we all got in a serious sweat and enjoyed being
eaten alive and trampled by runners in each other’s awesome company.
It was pretty cool – we each came up with our own mini circuit and put them all together, all mixed in, to make one big one! We were barely halfway through and I was ready to call it quits! 🙂 That’s the sign of a good workout, right?
Note to us, for future workouts: NO outdoor planking. Ouch to the scabs all over our elbows. And gravel all over our legs. And bugs all over our bodies. Yummy.
Don’t worry, I have been running too. I ran 4 miles yesterday before work (who actually runs before work? It’s impressive if you do!) and am planning an enjoyable long run this weekend.
Do you ever create a workout, start doing it, and realize it’s not enough or too much? Yes to both and both are highly annoying. 🙂 But, both situations, it’s easily adjusted.
Do you find that doing circuits with people is a huge motivation? Yes, absolutely. I really exclusively do them with others. Never on my own, ain’t nobody got time.
Where’s your favorite place to workout? I’m all about the outdoors when it comes to running, but I might second guess this kind of a workout being held outdoors again…
