Last week featured more at-home workouts including barre, yoga, and pilates, along with a few short runs. I’ve also continued participating in the Run Strong Challenge. This is the longest I have ever kept up with a challenge like this, but I am finding it really easy to incorporate into my routine. The exercises are challenging but manageable and it’s forced me to do more planks than I would usually do on my own:)
Monday: RSC: Runner’s arabesque and single leg glute bridges, 10 minutes Pure Barre (full body), and 3 mile run
Tuesday: RSC: Lateral lunge and active hamstring stretch, and 35 minutes pilates
Wednesday: RSC: Side plank with leg lift and single leg balance figure 8s, 10 minutes Pure Barre (thighs and seat), 3 mile run
Thursday: RSC: Mountain climbers and single leg toe touch, Iron Strength Workout
Friday: RSC: Plank with leg lifts and runner’s arabesque, pilates for runners (just the leg section) and 30 minutes yoga
Saturday: RSC: Russian twists and cross-over lunge, 10 minutes Pure Barre (seat and abs), and 5 mile run
Sunday: Rest (planning to do the RSC on Monday)
My workouts have definitely been kind of random with short segments of lots of different stuff. I find that it’s helped me from getting bored, which tends to happen when I cut back on running and focus on other workouts.
I have noticed that I haven’t done much for my upper body (other than Iron Strength) so the plan for next week is to incorporate that a bit more. I want to get back to doing push-ups several days a week because I noticed alot of benefits when I was consistent with that over the summer!
Do you prefer doing lots of different types of shorter workouts or fewer longer workouts?
Do you incorporate push-ups into your workout routine?
