Just over a month ago, I told you all about my running routine and what I was doing to keep fit. Unfortunately, a knee injury (simply from running) put me on the side lines about a week later, and I haven’t run since. I know knee issues are not something you should mess with and it’s important to listen to your body and give yourself time to heal (don’t push yourself). On the bright side, it’s been a bit of a nice break from running and I have switched up my routine to accommodate.
I have been working out with my running friend on our lunch hours still, but focusing on strength training. We don’t go to the gym, we simply use a secluded spot near our gym at work to get our fitness on. All the moves we do are with our own body resistence and actually very challenging. We are certainly keeping our heart rates up and breaking a mad sweat.
I wanted to share with you some of our workouts as people often ask us what we do or where we get our ideas.
Our favourite workouts come from Instagram: OneFitMom (girl is fit, let me tell you). I simply take a screen shot of the workouts she posts (like above) and we keep my phone close by during the workouts and bang it out.
Lately, when we want to spice things up, we use other avenues, including making up our own, similarly inspired, workouts (like below; how cute is the bottom one my friend made for today?!). We always do the set three times and it always includes things we hate or struggle with (for me, that’s the plank, for sure) mixed in with more enjoyable moves.
