Fitness Friday: The 7 Minute Workout and Training Update



Confession: since I've been working in more outdoor runs, my trips to the gym have declined in frequency.  I have learned that strength training is extremely important while training so to make sure I'm still getting my strength workouts in, I've been doing a few 7 minute workouts post-run.  Have you heard of the 7 minute workout?  The Wahoo 7 Minute Workout is a science-based, high-intensity, interval workout that packs 12 bodyweight exercises into a focused seven-minute training session. When you download to your phone or tablet, the 7 Minute Workout app is free with the additional option of $1.99 to unlock an Alternate 7 Minute Workout, a Pilates 7 Minute Workout, and even the ability to create your own 7 Minute Workout.  I'll do a run and do 2-3 rounds of the standard workout or mix it up with the standard and alternate workouts.  Since the weather has gotten a little warmer it's been easy to do these at the park and then stretch after my run.  I highly recommend it and would love to hear if you try it!


Here's a little update on where I'm at with my BK Half training:
3/28/2016: 25 Minute Run along East River Run Path (not sure of pace because the app was all wonky that day!)
3/30/2016: 26 Minute Run @ 10:09/mi pace + Recovery Deck Legwork at NP Bridge Day
4/1/2016: 25 Minute Run over the BK Bridge to the NP Workout in Fort Greene @ 9:49/mi pace
4/2/2016: 40 Minute "Long" Training Run @ 9:26/mi pace
Gap Mesh Sports Bra, Lululemon Pace Rival Crop, Asics GT-2000 Running Shoes
And can we quickly talk about this sports bra and these crops?  I am loving the crop top trend in sports bras/workout tops - it definitely makes bearing it a little easier!  And these crops.  I just can't with how good they are.  They're my first pair of Lululemon pants and they truly are different than other crops I own.  The stitching is on point to match all of my curves, the material is amazing (including the super soft mesh panels) and they just lift me up when I wear them.  Good for the body, bad for the wallet (which is why I never owned Lulu pants before this!).  I highly recommend!
