Fitness Fridays: #Fit In3

Hello Friends and TGIF!!!
 
Boy has this been an interesting week. Let me start off by saying that Wednesday's "Holy Sh*t" adventure prompted me to take a day off on Thursday. I had absolutely no energy to run on Thursday morning. I woke up today in a slight state of PTSD (Post-traumatic stress disorder), but nevertheless, I laced up my Newton sneakers and went for a run. Fifty minutes later I was back at home with a t-shirt and feeling stress free. It was a good way to start my day =D .
 
Today I did a combination of running and some HIIT exercises. I started off with a 6 mile run and incorporated some strides on the last mile (30 seconds on and 30 seconds off). After my run, I went home and set up a "HIIT Station" for my workout.
 
 
My HIIT Station included: a chair for step-ups and chair dips, dumbbells for the squats, a jump rope and a yoga mat for the push-ups and the plank holds.
 
HIIT Workout:
 
1. One minute weighted squats
2. One minute push-ups
3. One minute step-ups
4. One minute chair dips
5. Two minutes jump rope
6. One minute plank hold
 
*This was repeated 3 times with 30 seconds rest in between
 
I encourage you to #Fit In a HIIT workout a couple of times a week.
It will make you stronger and faster and more powerful at running. Give it a try.

I am grateful for the relaxing
run I had this morning.

    1. Brittany it's super easy. You only need the basics like some dumbbells and a mat.
