I woke up this morning realizing that I was out of coffee…crap. Might as well brew up one of the ten or so tea blends I’ve been collecting and wanting to try someday. I experimented with an orange citrus green tea and sprinkled a chai blend over it.
Tasty but it just didn’t do it. I felt blah and had a foggy head all day today.
Since today was a rest day from strength training, I thought I’d go for a nice run to clear my cloudy head. My friend Stephanie was just telling me about her recent run where she added burpees and jump squats and other exercises at every mile or so that reminded me of what I use to do running my Blockhouse Creek loop.
I was only planning on a steady 4.5mi run but as soon add I hit the road I immediately felt an amazing energy that encouraged me to go breast mode!
I just got done running 5 miles with 10 burpees, 25 push ups, 25 plank jacks & 25 walking lunges at every mile! It was rough and I went to bitch stitch city, man my sides were cramping but I pushed through it!
EVERY TIME I do not feel like working out, I have THE BEST workouts!
Give it a shot, see where it takes YOU!

That’s been my experience as well. Last week I was just not motivated to step into the gym, and squats were not on my scope. After that first set, I set a new PR in squats and bench. Go figure.
Ha, ha, it’s so true!
