Hey, Hey, Hey!
Today is the day I’ve been waiting for SINCE LIKE FEBRUARY! Today is the day I get to pack up and head off to go camping! YAY! Seriously super excited! About camping and today’s run!
As I’ve mentioned, I’m heading out of town today, which means tomorrow I’m not posting a fifth workout for this week’s challenge. For tomorrow, the fifth day of this week, I’ve suggested an optional cardio/running day (you can see lots of cardio suggestions HERE) or if you’re feeling beastly, go all out and do a full body workout (like one of THESE)
I’m not exactly sure what I’ll be doing for exercise tomorrow, I’ve been thinking about throwing a few different bodyweight exercises together in a circuit, and also, going for a run would be really nice. Especially if I wake up early and go while the birds are singing in the morning. It’s so peaceful and nice. 🙂
But we’ll see tomorrow brings when it comes! I’m sure either way, I’ll be sharing with you guys on Facebook. 🙂
If you’re interested in the Lushious Bikini Body Challenge,
but didn’t begin on day 1, you can still jump on board!
The challenge is about creating a healthy lifestyle through exercise,
which will energize you, create happiness and improve strength and self-love!
+ check in each day for the NEW daily workout
+ drink lots of water throughout the day, and especially around your workout time
+ always train with proper form, focusing on your breathing and tempo
+ focus on eating lean protein with lots of vegetables for every meal
+ share your progress through #LushiousBikiniBodyChallenge
OR jump on the treadmill!
Either way, spend 15 minutes PUSHING YOUR MIND TO NOT STOP and run your heart out! It’s up to you if you want to run consistently or go with intervals. I’ll be taking my gymboss and working with 3 minute rounds with a faster/slower speed. (Beginning with slower – if you want to do the same :))
…when running, to always keep your elbows close to your sides – we don’t want to be bruising people as we run by – or even worse, hit the girl next to you on the treadmill!
…breathe nice and slow. A trick I learned many years ago was to inhale and exhale as one same foot hits the pavement, changing your breaths every 4 strides. By keeping your breathing controlled this way, you’ll never get a side cramp! I haven’t anyways, it’s eliminated those days!
example: left foot touches – breathe in – right foot – left foot – right foot – left foot exhale – right foot – left foot – right foot – left foot inhale….
…keep your chin high, knees high, core engaged and try not to lean forward. Think of good posture, you don’t need to be hunched over or kicking your legs out to the sides.
Enjoy your run today, and your workout tomorrow too!
I’ll be back here on Sunday with next week’s workout plan!
