In case you were wondering, I have not changed up my workout yet for November. My October Plan has been working so well for me that I decided to stick with it for an additional week.
I ran on the treadmill yesterday (a short run but full of intervals) and completed the October Plan leg routine. Wow – how do I still get sore from this? I’ve been doing it for a month!?! If you want a toned tush but only have time for a few lower-body moves once or twice per week, follow that workout!
Now, back to that treadmill…
I know you “runners” won’t be impressed, but this felt good for me. After a little warm-up, I did 3 min and 30 seconds at 6.5 mph and 0 incline. I then bumped up the incline to 2 for the rest of the run. I then completed 3 min and 30 seconds at 7 mph, followed by another interval at 6.5, another at 7, one more at 6.5. I finished up with 2 min at 7 and the last 30 seconds at 7.3 mph. I then lowered the speed and incline for a cool down. Not bad for only 20 minutes!
You might be wondering why I posted such a hideous picture. FYI, the giant sweat mark is actually my self-made medal for getting up and getting moving. In addition, the hair fly-aways are my Mercury wings. (Try and tell me that guy doesn’t look fast.)
Even if you run or walk slowly, you still lap everyone who is still in bed.
Here’s another good thing from yesterday.
It wasn’t quite what I was expecting, but it was good. There’s a semi-thin broth, so it’s not like a sweet potato puree. I’m not sure if I’ll buy it again since it wasn’t all-out great, but it was definitely unique. I really like sweet potatoes, Thai flavor, and new foods, so I’m glad a bought it.
It was an extra soup-er day because I also had this bean soup for dinner. Yum!
In closing, what should I do with myself this weekend now that the Tigers finally have a bye weekend?!?!
