This past week I have been thinking about how I can tweak my workouts to get more results—both losing weight and improving my running. I have been doing a lot of reading online and keep coming back to the same thing—strength training.
I figure I have a few options. First, my gym (Strictly Fitness in York, PA) has body pump classes. This would be a great option, but the classes are at 5:30 on Tuesdays and Thursdays. My husband is not home from work yet at this time so this option will not work. I could also hire a personal trainer, but this option is pricy. I could also do videos at home. Since I am a Beach Body Coach, I am thinking about giving ChaLEAN Extreme a try. Have you tried it? What did you think?
I have also been thinking about changing my weekly routine. I usually hit a spin class on Monday and Wednesday morning, and then running on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. My runs lately have been 5k treadmill runs. This is getting boring! The official half marathon training plan does not start for a few weeks yet, but I am ready for something new. My “hike” workouts have been going great though. It was so hard at first, but it is getting easier. I guess that means I am improving! My new plan for runs is do the hike workout for the first mile, then run two more miles. I also plan to research new outdoor running options in my area.
What do you do to keep your workouts fresh?
