I feel like a workout queen after the last couple of hard days of workouts!
Wednesday I had training for my new job, then some time in between before I had to go train my client so I was able to get my own workout in. So nice to work at a gym, can just change and get right to it!
I did 30 hard minutes of intervals on the stepmill and then 20 minutes of running/walking intervals on the treadmill. Then I hit the assisted pull up machine and did a few sets of pull ups with a few different grips. One of my goals is to be able to do some unassisted pull ups, the first step in my plan is to work on doing assisted pull ups. I have a ways to go!! But I’m starting strong.

Yesterday I had an early morning workout at Fitness Together with my trainer. I got there a little early so I could get warmed up. I walked slow for about 5 minutes, then put the treadmill up to 4.0 mph and a 4.0 incline. It was a good way to warm up the muscles!

Then my trainer Lisa told me we would be doing an “easy” workout focusing on shoulders and abs. YEAH RIGHT!!! It was easy only in the sense that my heart rate didn’t get as high for as long.
It was such a fun workout though including medicine ball slams, cable shoulder presses, woodchops, squats with a cable crossover, and pushing a 45 lb weight plate up and down the hallway on my hands and feets…oh my god were my legs and hip flexors burning! That was followed up by some hip raises with my feet on the ball combined with some hamstring curls (feet on the ball, hips up, roll your feet towards your butt) plus some other fun stuff. My hammies are FEELING it today!

I was feeling invigorated after this workout, and it wasn’t even 8 AM so I jumped on the treadmill and stretched out my legs a bit. Then I put my towel over the screen so I wouldn’t watch the time and just ran. I was running quite slow, but was going for endurance.
With a great warmup, cooldown and stretch my stats were:
150 average HR
165 max HR
That sums up my workouts the last few days…I am shadowing some floor staff for a few hours today and then plan to get some cardio in before I go and train my client.
Do you have any big fitness related goals in mind right now? I want to be able to do a pull up and will continue to work on that. I have some other goals as well such as a 10k and another triathlon.
What are your fitness goals? Leave me a comment and let me know!
