Turbo Fire Rest Day
This month of Turbo Fire is focused on Cardio so there aren’t any HIIT workouts – besides the ones I do separately from Turbo. Without the HIIT workouts, my Turbo Fire workouts are longer 45 min to an hour so it was nice to have a break from it today. Of course, it didn’t mean I had a day off.
Today was my Long run day. I was just going an extra .25 miles every week but I decided to go for 8 miles today instead of 7.75 miles. It’s been raining non stop the last couple days. I had hoped that there would be a little break from the rain, but I wasn’t lucky this time around. It was rainy and windy my entire run, but I was surprised that it didn’t slow me down that much. I had a jacket with my hood on over my hat, but at the end you couldn’t tell. I was soaked except for my back. It felt great that I didn’t allow the rain to be an excuse for me. I really am working on Not making excuses and just Doing what I need to in order to reach my goals :-)
I usually take it easy after my run, but today I felt really good afterwards so I decided to do an afternoon workout. I did get a half hour nap in after doing homework with Gio but I think that was more because of the rainy weather and less because I was tired. I wanted to get back to doing booty workouts on Wednesdays. I haven’t been able to do what I like to because I switched my running schedule around. I need to find a way to get my Stair Circuit back into my routine. Yes, I miss running stairs. Lol.
I went with two NTC workouts. I really like Lea Michele’s Triple Threat workout. The Single Leg Lift with row is killer on my legs – especially since they were a little worn out from running. I could really feel this in my glutes today. I followed it with the Butt Buster workout. Lots of lunges! I was going to do another workout but I remembered that I hadn’t done my Mad Abs for Day 14. The side plank and crunches aren’t too bad for me yet, but the pushups are getting tougher. Today it was 23. I was able to do all of them on my feet :-) I know it’s suppose to be a workout for my abs, but my arms are the ones dying. I ended with a 5 minute plank.
M1: Cinnamon Apple Raisin with Unsweetened almond milk, Raw Almond Butter, Chia Seeds, and fresh cut apple slices.
M2: Luna Bar – pre run fuel :-)
M3: Wanted to get rid of some leftovers. Brown Rice, left over tofu mix, peas, and corn.
M5: Turkey Meatballs and Broccoli. Also had the last of the peas and corn.
Had a Zico during my run and a Chocolate Zico after my run.
80 oz. of water.
Great job on your long run in the rain. I’m so inspired by your “no excuses” mindset. :)
Thanks Tammy! It’s a hard mindset to get use to. But I always feel much better when I stop making excuses and just do it :-)
