Exhausted

Good Monday morning! How is everyone this morning? I am exhausted, and I don’t really know why. I got plenty of sleep last night. I could back to sleep right now, but I don’t think work would like that very much.

I got up this morning and headed to the gym for Week 2 of Best Body Bootcamp. After resting up over the weekend, I was ready to kick Week 2 into high gear (once I got to the gym, getting out of bed was rough. lol)
Today’s workout was back to Upper Body. Last Monday, I used weights that I felt were a little too heavy, resulting in not-so-great form. Today, I lowered the weights so I could focus on better form and better form is what I got. I could tell my muscles were working harder even with the lower weights. By the time I reached the last super set, I thought my arms were going to fall off. haha. 
This morning a HIIT workout was also on the agenda. I opted for the treadmill today, starting with a minute warm-up at a speed of 4.0. Once I hit the HIIT portion, I went for 60 seconds at a speed of 6.6, folllowed by a recovery speed of 5.0 for 60 seconds. I repeated this to total 10 minutes and ended with a 5 minute cool down. 
That wrapped up this morning’s workout. Tomorrow is Lower Body and my final day of C25K, along with a July goals recap!
What kind of workout did you fit in this morning or was it a rest weekend like me with some Olympics watching?

    Yay I can comment!!! Now I don't have to feel like such a stalker. Haha.

    I'm a big stickler that form is better than trying to do heavier weights. You will get WAY more benefits that way. 🙂

    HAHA! I definitely felt it more today than last week with the heavier weights.

    Great job for getting in an awesome workout this morning girl :). Saturdays are my long run days, and sundays I just relax all day. Monday morning I woke up and did 7 miles, and today will be around 5 with some sort of circuit thrown in there.

    Hope you had a wonderful rest of the day girl!

    Thank you! 7 miles? That's fantastic! I'll get there at some point but I know I can't force it too soon or I'll be setting myself up for failure. Keep up the great work! Have a great week!
