The Last Weekend: BBBC Plan

15 comments

I ended up doing yet another evening workout last night! It was a great workout because I was feeling fairly energetic and I had my Shuffle tunes playing loudly. :)

I was also thinking about some exciting news that I got yesterday and that kept my mind busy!

The workout:

  • Duration: 1 hour treadmill incline walking
  • Distance: 3.8 miles
  • Speed: 4.0 mph, incline 15% for 45 mins, then 3.5 mph at incline 15% for 5 mins, then 3.5 mph at incline 10% for 5 minutes, then for the last 5 minutes slowly decreasing speed and incline until arriving at 3.2 mph incline 3%.
  • Max heart rate: 172 bpm
  • Avg Heart rate: 153 bpm (During the first 45 mins my heart rate was around 165bpm on average! That just shows you how much it decreases in those last 15 minutes)

I also did Circuits 1 + 2 + 3 of Level 3 of the 30-Day Shred! I am loving level 3 so much!

  • Duration: 26 mins.
  • Max heart rate: 146 bpm
  • Avg heart rate: 110 bpm

A GREAT and intense workout!! :)

This was our pre-run snack. We are off for our bike/run-athon now :) I am hoping for 5 miles today! I am really enjoying doing 2 strong runs per week now with cross training on other days. I think my joints are thanking me!

I hope you all are enjoying a healthy and fun Saturday morning!!

Today’s question: What is the best exercise tip anyone has ever told you?

For me, it was probably when someone told me that I could do exercise until I was blue in the face, but if I didn’t enjoy it, I would never see the results I was after. It totally makes sense to me now, even though at the time I didn’t get it.

PS- You can track Frayed Laces in the Ironman race today!! Her bib is 1252!!

See you this afternoon for some exciting news!

Best exercise advice-”no pain no gain” JUST KIDDING! I think it’s one of the worst! I think the best exercise advice is to CHANGE IT UP…using different muscles in different ways AND keeping my sanity by not doing the same thing everyday is what works for me! The muffins look delish, no surprise coming from you :)

Best advice: rest days are important! Our body needs to recover and repair before we work it hard again. And I think I’m going to try the Shred tomorrow, I’m excited!

Thanks for the link to the exercise tv. I’m going to have to check it out this summer… definitely sounds like fun!

AWESOME muffins! Great way to start out the day! :)

The best “advice” someone ever gave me was when one of my older brothers taught me how to breathe while running. I use to get TERRIBLE side cramps even running a simple mile, and he told me to breathe it through my nose, out through my mouth, and breathe to the pace of my feet (4 steps while breathing in, 4 steps while breathing out). It worked like a charm… NO MORE SIDE CRAMPS! He definitely got me to like running! :)

Hey Angela. I saw your Green Monster recipe on another blog and wanted to pop in and give you a big ‘Thank You’ for that recipe!!! I started making it for myself for breakfast a few weeks ago. Then, one morning, my husband asked me to make enough for both of us. He loved it!! And, then, as if it couldn’t get any better, my two non-green eating kids asked me to make enough for them the next morning!!! Holy Cow!!! They heard me and my husband raving about how yummy it is ~ my husband, the great person he is, said he would consider it a dessert because of the sweetness. Of course, the word ‘dessert’ for breakfast sparked my kids’ curiosity! They are 5 and 9 and now ask for some Green Monster to go with their cereal in the mornings. I couldn’t be happier as I’ve tried so many different ways to get some greens in them and now they’re getting them in first thing in the morning!! What a great way to start an energetic, fun-filled day. Thank you so much!!
