Good morning and happy FITNESS Friday to you!
I have not ONE but TWO high-intensity running workouts that will challenge your entire body from head to toe. Try one today or this weekend and then put the other one on your calendar for next week. They’re both awesome workouts!
As you probably remember, I love high-intensity running workouts that include a variety of strength movements. They keep both my mind and body engaged and they are a whole lot of fun. I swear, the time just flies by!
The workout above starts with a 200 meter run followed by 15 Squat Jumps and a 60-second side plank hold. After that, you’ll run 400 meters followed by 20 Push-Ups and a plank hold on the other side. Then, the running distance will increase to 800 meters followed by 25 Burpees (you love me!) and another side plank hold. You’ll continue to work your way back down the ladder of exercises and finish with 15 Squat Jumps. For even more of a challenge, repeat the workout from the top for two full rounds. Happy sweating!
- Top: I get questions all the time about my tanks and one of my very favorites is the Distance Running Tank Top from Brooks Running because it’s comfortable and totally fuss-free. When I exercise, I don’t want to worry about what I’m wearing, so this tank is definitely a go-to for me. It’s super soft, sweat-wicking, and flattering (not too tight, but not baggy either). I love it. I also own a pair of matching stripped Chaser 3″ Shorts from Brooks that are so cute and perfect for both running and other kinds of workouts (aka they’re not super tight on the quads and move with you). I especially love their thick waistband with drawstring, which is comfy and flattering, and I don’t have to worry about them falling down or moving around too much during my workouts.
- Leggings: These are another favorite for sure! They’re from Fabletics, who I recently started working with, and I wear them for workouts, running errands, and just lounging around the house. The material is soft and actually quite a bit thicker than other leggings that I own, but I really like that high-quality feeling.
- Sneakers: Oh, how I love my Brooks Adrenaline “Nantucket” GTS! I wear them ALL the time for both workouts and everyday life. They are seriously the cutest sneakers ever created (and super comfy!), and I get compliments on them all the time.
And here’s running workout #2 for you (below)! It’s actually inspired by the one above. I did it yesterday and it took me just over 20 minutes to finish. Enjoy!
