Can you all believe it?! At the end of this week we’ll be HALFWAY through our 14-week boot camp. Seven weeks went by fast, and I’m sure the next seven will go by even quicker. That means summer is so, so close! Everyone cheer with me…WOOHOO!
OK, we’re done cheering now. Because it’s time to workout! Complete this video three times through any time the Week 7 Workout is scheduled on our April Workout Calendar, which you can find below. …Read More
I’m weird. I really don’t ever crave flavored drinks like sodas or juices the way that many people do.
I know some people who would rather die of thirst than drink regular, plain, boring water. OK, I’m totally exaggerating with with the “die of thirst” thing. But seriously, I know some people who hate water a lot. Which is really not a good thing, since you know, we need it to survive.
That’s right. Next weekend. Me. 13 miles. I decided last night that I wanted to do it. I’ve been debating about the More/Fitness Magazine Half-Marathon for months now. Every time I open the latest issue of Fitness Magazine and see the ad for it I’m like, “Yeah! I really want to do that!” but for some reason I just never signed up. Well, now I did! And I’m so ready to run.
This year is the race’s 10th anniversary, it takes place in Central Park, and it’s one of the largest all-women’s half-marathons in the country. Ummmm, sweet! Sounds like a good time to me.
So, crazy me. Signing up for 13-mile races two weeks before their start. Good thing I’ve been running a lot lately! In fact, I’ve been running so much that I’ve hardly had any time to write about it. I’ll make up for some of that now.
Here we go! This is our Week 6 workout for the Summertime Slim-down Boot Camp. It’s a pyramid style workout with four different body weight exercises. You’ll repeat four rounds of each exercise, increasing the number of reps with each round. In other words, you’ll really be feeling the burn by round four. No pain, no gain. That’s how the saying goes and it’s the truth. So, lace up your sneakers and give it everything you’ve got. There’s no equipment needed for this workout.
If you’re just joining the Boot Camp now, welcome! Anytime is a good time to start. You can find links to all the previous workouts below.
Also, below is our April workout calendar. Pin it, print it, hang it somewhere you will see it and remember to get your scheduled sweat sessions in. This challenge is just as much about learning to fit exercise into your schedule as it is getting in shape.
First things first. If you’re wondering what the heck happened to my February 2013 running playlist, last month, I shared it exclusively to my Tumblr page. But rest assured that I did not skip a month of new running music. It exists. You can find it, subscribe, and listen to your hearts content by clicking the link above.
Now, February is long gone and somehow we’re through with March as well. Another month, another slew of really fun songs to run to! My March running playlist is listed below as well as a link where you can subscribe and listen via Spotify. Happy running!
