Hey there! I hope you guys had a great weekend. Mine was super low-key and included things like a 90-minute massage, a long walk with the pups, dinner with friends and more stuff that you’ll hear about in tomorrow’s weekend recap.
For now…let’s chat about workouts and meal planning. I’m so excited about this week’s dinner menu so if you do nothing else, scroll down and check it out. Whole30 or not, this one is a WINNER!
RE: workouts. I’m still not getting the strength workouts in that I would prefer but now that I’m only at the gym once a week to train clients, I’m having a hard time getting over there on other days. I’m going to start small and just try to make it two strength sessions instead of one next week and call that progress.
So many pulls in this morning’s workout. One of my mini-sets was this triplet of 5 pull ups, 10 push ups and 20 jump lunges. 3 rounds with close grip pull ups and 3 rounds with overhand grip. Try it! 💪 • • • #workout #pullups #tgif #instaworkout #stronggirls #girlswholift #girlswithmuscle #pushups #lunges #letsgetsweaty #fridayworkout
On the topic of strength, you should totally try this triplet of exercises that I posted on Instagram on Friday. I’ve been sore for the last two days from it in all the best ways! I know that I’ve been promising a pulling program for those of you who are working on getting pull ups. I promise to make it happen in the next 3-4 weeks. Hold me accountable!
And when it comes to running, I’m hanging out comfortably in the 4-6 mile zone and adding back in some speed work. I was planning on trying to get a 7-8 miler in today…but then I walked the pups for an hour and did yoga instead. I’m definitely going to be ramping up the running a bit in the next few weeks as I have some spring half marathons on my calendar! 🙂
