Can I tell you all something?
I have been listening to my body a TON and I swear it’s paying off! (Genius concept, right?)
Cutting (non fruit) sugar out of my diet for the last 4 1/2 weeks and focusing even more on the workouts that my body WANTS has been even better than I can explain. There is still a long way to go to really feeling back to myself, but I feel like I’m finding a rhythm and learning to trust myself again.
With that said, I plan out my workouts at the start of the week as it makes it easier for me to feel focused on how I’m going to stay active without feeling like I’m scrambling BUT I’m flexible. Those plans change as my body does and with how it feels.
After a terrible night’s sleep Sunday night, I cancelled my reservation at yoga and gave myself that extra hour and a half to try and get more rest. Sure I would have loved to get in a workout (and sometimes I still do after a marginal night of sleep) but I knew in that moment, sleep was what I most needed and so it’s what I took.
Come Tuesday morning, I SPRANG out of bed, got in a great circuit workout before heading to hot yoga and went into my day refreshed, rejuvenated and feeling like a completely new person again.
Where am I getting at? Today’s workout was just that. A day when I woke up wanting to lift some (albeit light) weights so I found some inspiration and threw together this workout.
400m Buy-in Run
Alt knee to elbow
200m run between rounds
400m Cash-out run
