Speedy in the Evening

Hi Friends!

If you follow me on Instagram you already saw this.

That’s Kya. Isn’t she adorable? She is a therapy dog and her owner is physical therapist that works in the building I do. She sat like this for a half hour while I did progress reports. Work is soooo much better with a cute little face around! 🙂

Big News!

I plan on using the HFM Facebook page as a place for everyone to share their progress when we start the Headstand Pose Challenge next week. If you are interested in the challenge, check back on Tuesday, May 1st for the kick off. It should be a lot of fun!

Speedy in the Evening

Last night I decided to do my speed work on the treadmill after the kids went to bed. For some reason I’ve been enjoying doing tempo and speed work on Wednesday evenings rather than at 5 a.m. on Tuesday or Thursday. I always thought my energy was drained by 3 p.m. and didn’t have it in my to do a hard workout.  Maybe I am an afternoon runner after all?

Here’s how my speed workout looked:

I got 6 miles in just over 50 minutes. It was one of those runs where everything just felt good. Well, except for the fact that my dinner was sitting like a rock in my tummy. Ugh!

Don’t forget to stretch and foam roll!

Questions of the Day

Would you get more or less work done if you were allowed to bring your pet to work?

When is your best time to workout? Morning, afternoon, evening?

  1. Who knew! Somedays after work I’m so wound up – I need speed to unwind me! Other days I’m happy to just trot along. Either way. Nice job!!!

  2. I am so NOT an early morning runner. 10am is actually the perfect time for a run but I almost always run at night, around 6 or so due to work/family schedule. I got tired just looking at your speedwork routine!

  3. I usually get mine done in the morning, but I like the extra energy burst I have for afternoon runs- I always feel more ready for speed work later in the day. I just got my speed work in this morning (I’ve been slacking lately- well I guess I was counting my 5k races as speed work). This post also reminded me of two things on my to-do list, sending those answers back in to Fitfluential and getting my blog facebook page up and running. Thanks for the reminder- maybe I can tackle those this evening!

  4. Good mix of workouts to keep the boredom away! I’m going to try some of these. I am a morning workout person, mostly because we live in Florida and need to get out early before the heat becomes a factor. Thanks for sharing these!

  5. Most dietary supplements are safe as long as you follow the label instructions, but large doses of certain nutrients can have strong biological effects on the body. While that may be beneficial in some cases, there are times when taking large doses of individual supplements can be dangerous.
