double pyramid sprint workout
I’ve totally felt like a blogging slacker lately. I’ve had so much that I want to share lately too… I just never seem to make it to the computer.
So here’s some of what’s new:
- Hunter started sleeping through the night last Friday! He’s been going 8 hours at night, which-has-been-awesome. Tuesday night he got me up at 2am (which was odd), but all the other nights have been 8 straight hours.
- I was doing really well on the $200 grocery challenge, then I went running, ran some errands and went to costco (hungry). Bad, bad idea Heather. I left after spending $113 (I went a little crazy there), I’m well over my $200 mark. I haven’t added it up, but had Costco not happened I know I would have been super close to my goal. Update to come soon (I hope ;))!
- I’ve been doing a lot of yard work during Hunter’s long afternoon nap. When we bought our house 4 years ago the yard looked awesome – green grass, not over grown and not filled with angry blackberry vines everywhere. Now… kind of the opposite of that. I’ve slowly been working away at it. Little bits at a time make it less overwhelming. It’s still nothing pretty, but I’m hoping to get there. Plus by next year where Hunter’s running around I want him to have a nice yard to play in. Kids sure are motivation, huh?
- Jacob and I have started to go to the Y gym as a little family. And that’s what this post is about.
When we’re there, Hunter goes to child watch. Almost every time he’s been a major champ with no melt downs or freak outs. Luckily the one time we had to get him early we were just workout out, and I wasn’t teaching. I have this great fear Jacob won’t be there when he has a melt down and I’ll have to leave my class to get him. I hope that never happens!
Typically Jacob goes to the weights section and I’m either on the treadmill, lifting weights too, spending some time foam rolling or doing a circuit in another room. I’m a wild card.
If I’m on the treadmill, no way am I running long distances. I just can’t stand anything more than 2-3 miles on there. I get so bored, which is why I’ve got to do sprints on the treadmill. They keep me focused since there is a constant change and constant challenge. Plus time just flies by!
I thought this workout was super fun and with the varying intervals of recovery and sprints I was definitely never bored!
What’s your favorite treadmill workout? And tell me, what’s new with you?
I’ve been slacking on commenting on all my blogs, but I read them all the time when I’m nursing! I may not make it to my computer much but my phone is always handy.
