Good morning and Happy Wednesday! I’m excited to be almost “over the hump” for this week. Looking forward to the weekend!
Since moving into my new apartment, I’ve adopted a new workout routine pretty quickly. Similar to my senior year of college, I’ve decided to wake up and work out 3x a week before work. This seems to work best for me! I’ve also made a schedule of what workouts to do on what days, which helps keep me accountable. It looks like this:
Monday – 6:45 PM Body Pump (+cardio)
Tuesday – AM workout
Wednesday – AM run + 8:00 PM yoga
Thursday – AM workout
Friday – Rest 🙂
Saturday – 9:00 or 10:15 AM Body Pump (+cardio)
Sunday – Cardio
Wednesday mornings are dedicated to outdoor runs. Since I’m new to this neighborhood, I’m still figuring out the best loops/paths near me. My best runs tend to be when I don’t have to think about where I’m going – I just go. So I’m looking forward to getting into that mindset!
At the recommendation of one of my coworkers, I used MapMyRun’s ‘Routes’ feature to find out where people run in my neighborhood! I had used MapMyRun before to log workouts, but wasn’t aware of this feature.
From the app, I was able to type in my starting address and identify a 2 mile loop starting and ending at my apartment complex! This morning, I did the loop 2x for a hot, humid 4 mile morning run.
Now I’m off for another 9-5 day (technically 9:30-6 at my job!), followed by yoga on the Whole Foods roof! I plan to check back in tonight for some ‘What I Ate Wednesday.’ 🙂
- Have you used ‘MapMyRun?’
- Do you prefer morning or evening workouts?
