When I hit the gym during a super busy week, I love mixing up short bursts of strength & cardio to get the most out of my workout. Mixing it up also keeps your heart rate up because your body doesn’t get “used” to the same old steady routine, so you are able to get stronger, fitter, and faster in less time! This is the workout that I completed early this morning and I felt so energized and ready to take on the day afterward. I started out with a 15-minute run (6.5 mph) and then did the strength exercises back to back in a circuit so that my heart rate stayed high. I then topped it off with another 10-minute interval run, alternating between 6.0 and 7.5 mph every minute.

And just a little bit of encouragement for the middle of the week:
I have been really encouraged by this verse as I press on through the crazy days and continue to remember WHY I do what I do and remember that the Lord’s purpose and plan for me is so much greater than the daily schedules and circumstances.
I hope that everyone is having a wonderful week!
