Quite the wordy title, eh? ;) As I mentioned in my earlier post, I woke up to my husband’s alarm clock going off at 4:30 a.m. this morning and wasn’t able to get back to sleep. I do not do well on little sleep, mind you. I need at least 7.5-8.5 hours of sleep to feel like “myself” the next day. Needless to say, getting about 6 hours of sleep last night made me think that today was going to be a loooonnnngggg day. Surprisingly I’m getting through the day okay so far.
There was one thing I was especially concerned about though – getting through my cardio workout today. Already not having a ton of energy just to get through the day made me wonder how I would feel getting through an intense cardio sesh. I promised myself I would do something though, no matter what. My solution? A “I-Don’t-Feel-Like-Doing-Cardio-But-Feel-Like-I-Should-Do-Something Treadmill Workout”! A little self talk and planning goes a long way.
This workout is not one of your more challenging treadmill workouts, but it gets your heart rate pumpin’, endorphins workin’, and your sweat a flowin’. It’s a great workout for one of those days that you don’t have much energy but know pumping out some exercise would be a positive choice for yourself (*Ahem* – my day today!), hence the title of the workout.
If you haven’t done your workout yet today or keep coming up with excuses to not get it in, then hop on that treadmill now and pump out this workout. You have no excuses now, and I promise you won’t regret it when you’re finished! Remember all the reasons you exercise?!
