I hope Brooke is okay with us living in Arizona for the winters. 44 degrees in the morning. Shorts. A cheesy grin.
I wanted to get my legs moving a bit this morning so I decided to do a chorus workout. What that means is that whenever the chorus of a song comes on I pick up the pace… so usually for about 30 seconds 3 times per song and then I run at an easy pace for the rest of the song. Some of the songs I pick up the pace more than others during the chorus but doing this keeps things interesting and my heart rate skyrocketing at different points. I naturally want to pick up the pace whenever a song gets faster (aka the chorus) and so it is a great way to add in fartleks to a workout without staring at your watch constantly trying to time your fartleks.
Another bonus of running by the canals here is that you get miles and miles of dirt trails to run on which my body loves because of the softer surface. The ducks are all about the softer surfaces for their joints too.
The star of the show were my New Year’s socks from Brooks.
Also, I didn’t hate being able to stretch outside afterwards in the sunshine.
A huge bonus that comes along with staying at Megan’s parents’ house is that they are always stocked with chocolate covered cinnamon bears.
5 MORE DAYS!!!
Enjoy the rest of your Tuesday and I’ll see you tomorrow in the A.M with some randomness!
