I just realized that the reward dollars I earn with my Old Navy credit card can ALSO be used at Athleta!! Ever since Athleta rolled with their new Power to the She campaign, this advertisement has caught my eye... for that fun looking skirt. Luckily, I had enough reward points saved up to make that cutie free! Score!
Yesterday was an at-home workout. I started off with the Biggest Loser Weight Loss Yoga DVD, followed by P90X Ab Ripper. Have you ever done P90X? My husband bought the entire program several years ago and I've dabbled around with it a little bit. The Ab Ripper is by far my favorite... 15 minutes of pure hell on your abs (and surprisingly your quads too!). Try it out on Youtube: Part 1 and Part 2.
After the yoga and ab DVDs, I created my own circuit. I wanted something that was high intensity, but quick and simple that I can work it at the park while the kids are on the playground. (This spring-like weather in Feb has me daydreaming of park playdates already!) I quickly found myself sweating and out of breathe. Twice through and I was spent for the morning. Give a try and let me know what you think!
My husband is finally home again (after a 2 week work trip), so I was laced up and waiting on the porch when he returned from work yesterday. It was another warm day and I was anxious to get a run in before dark. With my next half marathon just two weeks away, I'm kinda giddy with the paces that have come naturally in recent runs. My 5-6 mile runs have consistently been in the mid-9 range, which has never been my comfort zone. It's got me thinking, "What's possible in a race with the adrenaline pumping??" Especially Myrtle Beach, which is probably the flattest 13.1 I'll ever run.
What's your favorite brand name of running skirts?
Have you ever worked out with Tony Horton and the P90X series?
Do you do circuit workouts or just run?
