It’s a gloomy one here but I did manage to drag myself from my warm bed and get in a workout!
A simple 20 minute interval 2 mile treadmill run. I’m not a great runner first thing in the morning. I like to plan my runs in the afternoons when my body is ready to move. There is always a chance when I run at 6am that I may fall asleep and fall off the treadmill….I’m not kidding. It frightens ME!
I’ve only fallen off a treadmill ONCE and I still have a scar on my knee where I tried in failure to pick myself up. I never want to repeat that experience! I kept the workout pants I was wearing that day which have burn holes in the knees just to prove I fought a treadmill and a treadmill won!
My breakfast today was LEGENDARY:
It started with a normal Over Nights Oats and ended in sweet apple and cinnamon treat! I made my oats like this:
1/2 cup milk
8 0z Vanilla Chobani
1 cup Oats
2 tablespoons Chia Seeds
Mix all together and put in fridge overnight.
….and to this creation I added a sprinkle of cinnamon and apples. Truth be told I used the apple slices like a spoon! Yummmmmm so good!
Also please note the new fancy cutting board counter top! A bit of a Mother’s Day Gift from the boys, I love it! It’s nice having a super handy husband. He’ll never read this but I love him anyway.
Last Night I did the HIIT workout at home that I showed you Monday. You can find it here.
This pretty much sums up these workouts:
I was struggling to juggle my phone/ timer and workout all at the same time. Plus my youngest decided it was “Tigers gotta bounce” time throughout the jumping squats so I was fending him off as well. It was quite a scene
Timer issues are unacceptable during HIIT. You’re dying the last thing you need is an added annoyance. A little Google search action and I found this beauty on YouTube. There were a few other versions I looked at first but this one was the most simple and gave timing hints throughout the workout, which I liked.
Have you ever fallen off a treadmill or seen someone else wipe out? If you are mastering the art of Tabata/ HIIT what is your favorite timer?
