My Favorite Ways to Work Out at Home

It’s my Friday! Tomorrow I’ll be hopping on a plane and flying to Pennsylvania to spend my birthday/Memorial Day weekend back home. I’m so excited.

Although I was just home for a quick business trip, this will be more of a vacation. It’s much needed. On my agenda is a whole lot of friends & family time, plus eating, drinking, and enjoying a few days without work.

While I’ll definitely be in vacation mode, that’s not to say I won’t also be getting some workouts in. I’ll go crazy if I don’t!

Here are my favorite ways to work out when I’m home:

  1. Running my old trails. Nothing beats running at home. I spent a lot of time out on the trails training for my half marathon, so it’s always good to be back. Plus, I know the area like the back of my hand, so I can just zone out and go for it.

  2. Walking with my Mom. One of our favorite things to do is go for walks together. Hopefully the weather will allow for some good ones!
  3. Doing an exercise video. I’ve built up quite a collection of Jillian Michaels DVDs, all of which are waiting for me at home. They’re quick, tough, and effective!
  4. Yoga at my favorite studio. Lauren and I used to occasionally take a yoga class together at my favorite studio downtown. If our schedules align, I’m looking forward to meeting up with her for yoga, coffee and baked goods on Friday.
  5. Pickup games. Though it’s been a while since we’ve been able to get everyone together, I used to love playing pickup games of soccer or volleyball with a huge group. Flashback to summer vacations, for sure.

I’m hoping this weekend will be a perfect balance of relaxation & celebration. That’s what it’s all about, right? Let the fun begin! 8)

  1. So happy for you that you’re going home! AND it’s your birthday weekend?!

    Walks and runs with my parents are some of my favorite ways to workout when I’m at home. I love our talks and it makes the workout go by faster. Have so much fun!


  2. Happy early birthday! One of my favorite parts of going home is running on my favorite trails. There are so many good ones and it’s one of the things I miss most about home. I’m actually going back this weekend too!
