We are HOME from San Antonio! We got in late last night (way past my bed time), so I am going to spend today settling back in, doing laundry, and getting groceries for the week. Although it was a great trip, I am ready to be home and get back into the swing of things. I will do a little recap along with my WIAW post tomorrow!
Since I skipped my Trainer Tuesday post last week, I wanted to make sure I shared one with you today! Today’s Trainer Tuesday features the workout I did yesterday at our hotel’s fitness center. I did pretty well at staying consistent with my workouts while we were there. I suppose the fact that their fitness center was beautiful with all brand new equipment helped motivate me to get there every day.
Because we were in San Antonio, the humidity levels were crazy high which is definitely something I’m not used to from living in Arizona, California, and Utah all my life. Needless to say, I was more of a sweaty mess than usual after my workouts while we were there. Hence the title of today’s workout: Sweat It Out Upper Body Weights + Cardio. I’ll tell you what, I was sweatin’ like a crazy person when I was finished with this one!
I started out with an easy five minute warm up on the bike and then proceeded to the weight room to complete my upper body workout.
The weights portion took me about 35 minutes to complete, and then I headed over to the cardio section to sweat it out some more. I wanted to run but knew I shouldn’t since my hip has been a little achy the past few days. Even though the elliptical bores me to tears, I went for it. It’s low impact and is gentle on my feet and all my joints. I decided to come up with an elliptical interval workout to make it a little more interesting. It definitely helped my boredom and the thirty minutes flew by!
Note: The first column is the time; second column is the level; third column is which direction I pedaled; fourth column is how fast I pedaled.
This week I am starting my half marathon training plan! I’m pretty stoked! The first few weeks are fairly simple and are easier than what I have been doing lately for my own workouts. I’m going to stick with it as much as possible, but I might do a few extra things the first couple weeks. For example, a three mile run is on my training plan for today, so I will most likely do a three mile run along with an extra 20-30 minutes on the elliptical and/or stair climber. I’m just going to take it day by day and see how I feel! I’ll keep you all updated as I go along.
I hope you all enjoy today’s Trainer Tuesday workout! As always, feel free to comment below or email me with any questions. Make today a great one!
