Hi! How was everyone’s Christmas? (for those of you celebrating)
I will be posting my recap of Christmas weekend on Monday morning but I thought it was time to check in after taking a little blog break since last Wednesday so I’ve got the weekly workout recap along with a giveaway.
As I announced back in November, I’m partnering with Premier Protein again in 2016 to serve as an ambassador for their line of protein bars, shakes and powders. I did a broadcast on Periscope (follow me @jdecurtins) this afternoon sharing all of the swag items I received and promised a giveaway on my blog!
This year’s campaign is focused around Premier Protein providing the energy for one more, which I really love. This idea resonates with me on so many levels from physical to relationships to self-care.
- The energy to do one more set and increase my weights in the gym.
- The energy to practice my handstand press one more time.
- The energy to do one more thoughtful gesture for my friends and family every week like deliver meals, send handwritten notes, make more coffee dates, etc.
- The energy to do one more self-care activity daily like journaling, meditation and reading.
GIVEAWAY! If you’d like to enter to win a selection of Premier Protein products delivered to your door, leave me a comment telling me what your “one more” would be.
What do you wish you had the energy to do one more of? Run one more mile? Read one more bedtime story with your kids? Go on one more walk with your dogs every day? I’d love to hear your responses!
Giveaway rules: U.S. residents only. One entry per person. Giveaway ends Wednesday at midnight EST. Winner will be randomly selected.
And now here’s what I’ve had the energy for this week on the workout front! This picture was taken on Christmas Eve in shorts and a tank after a very humid, warm run. Crazy weather.
Run + Strength + Hot Yoga
4 mile run:
1 mile easy with my clients
1/2 mile warm up on treadmill
1 mile 45 seconds on, 15 off of 8% hill intervals
1.5 miles 45 seconds on, 15 off sprint intervals working up to 6:15 pace
3 sets strength:
12 dumbbell chest flies (20#)
12 pull ups (assisted machine)
12 lat pulldowns
12 split squats with one foot on bench behind (holding 20#)
12 dumbbell bicep curls (17.5#)
12 tricep press-downs on cable machine
20 kettlebell deadlifts (55# kettlebell)
20 dumbbell thrusters (17.5#)
6 mile run with a friend
Christmas Day hot yoga!
Hot yoga + 4.5 mile run with Zoey
I am conflicted…either hot yoga or I’ll head to the gym and get another strength session in…I’ll update later!
