This week mrC and I also started carb cycling again. Using what I learned from the Faster Way To Fat Loss Program (affiliate - I get a small fee if you sign up using my link), I planned my workouts and food days for the week. It felt good to be following a plan again. I've been needing some purpose to my workouts even though I really enjoy just winging it.
Here are my workouts for the week:
Monday - Run with sprints
One mile warmup and 10 sprints at 20 seconds work 40 seconds rest. This was an awesome workout, but tough because it was later in the day and warmer.
Tuesday - HIIT workout
At home session ---> Class Fitsugar video. This was challenging but hit all the good parts. I will be doing this video again.
Wednesday - Run and upper body strength
I took my workout to the fitness center because I wanted to have the right weights. My options at home are limited to two sizes. Started with The Lazy Runner's Short and Sweet Workout from Lisa and then did the Dirty Dozen Arm workout (another oldie that I'm bringing back). Then I started a pilates 10 day challenge, because there's an Athleta gift card up for grabs!
Thursday - Full body strength
Another at home workout ---> Fit and Sexy Full-body Workout Class Fitsugar video. I went with another video mainly because I couldn't decide what gym workout sounded good.
Friday - Hike
This was supposed to be a rest day but I switched it up so that I could try out my new hiking shoes. First impressions are good but we will see after my BIG hike today.
Saturday - Rest
Unplanned rest day after a late night out at the Chris Botti concert. I was tired, my body was tired, so I listened and took the day off.
Sunday - Tennis fun
It was a nice day so we went to the courts to hit the balls around again. We even played a couple of games at the end for fun.
Do plan out your workouts for the week or wing it?
