This week is bananas for me at school – busy days, and a few events in the evening, too. Which means several more days waking up at 4:00am to make sure I can fit these workouts in. It hasn’t been easy waking up that early, but I’ve been doing a decent job of it these past two weeks.
Here’s my workout plan for this week:
Sunday: 20-mile bike ride with a friend
Monday: stair workout (6 rounds up & down of 225 stairs) + 2.41-mile walk in 37:19 w/ mom + swimming/playing in the pool with nieces & sis.
Tuesday: Rest Day
**Wednesday: TIU: Making Waves Routine (elliptical) + TIU: Sunrise Routine (Beach Babe DVD) / PM workout: Sunset Routine
**Thursday: C25K: Week 4, Day 2 + TIU: Ab Workout Playlist + Bikini Booty
Friday: TIU: Biker Babes + TIU: Take Me to the Sea
Saturday: TIU: Pura Vida + long walk with Sofi
I’m going to try to walk Sofi on Wednesday – Friday in addition to these workouts, but it will just depend how the days go.
I’m excited about this workout plan because it’s challenging, yet also doable. I like the variety in my cardio because I think it’s really important, and the TIU toning is really showing up. In fact, my friend Di said that I look really toned when she saw me on Sunday. Which means that even though my weight has remained the same, I think I’m losing inches and firming up. Plus, I have a lot of fun creating the photo collages and checking in on Instagram with the TIU community.
This week’s C25K comes with 5 minutes of straight jogging, which is daunting, but I’m going to remember to s-l-o-w it down and just push through. My legs are never the issue; it’s my breathing that become difficult, so I know that slowing down will really help. As I mentioned in a previous post, my goal in beginning C25K again is to be able to wog/jog/run the MOOnlight 5K on July 12. Not run/walk, but to run it (however slowly) all the way through.
