Harder, better, faster, stronger

Huck and I did our usual morning run, plus an extra loop because he was being good. I think he’s figured out that I’m not his sled. 🙂 Afterwards, I completed Day 7 of the Push-up Circuit Challenge (I’m skipping the rest days) and did one round of FitSugar’s Power Plank Workout. Whew – it hasn’t gotten any easier!

This afternoon, I headed to the gym for some sprint intervals. I know that I’m not going to get any faster running on the treadmill, so I decided to run on the indoor track, instead. This was much easier for me. Psychologically, it’s really hard for me to “sprint” on the treadmill… especially when I’m worried about flying off the back end and breaking something.

I warmed up with 1 mile on the treadmill, then did the following workout:

.5-mile @ 3:07
30 air squats, 10 push-ups
.5-mile @ 2:57
20 surrender squats, 20 jumping jacks
.5-mile @ 3:10
20 box jumps, 10 push-ups
.5-mile @ 3:16

Afterwards, I ran 1 mile on the treadmill to cool down. I also spent some time in the hot tub and I know my muscles will thank me later. It felt amaaaazing! 🙂
