Back on the Workout Train

I finally made it back to the gym for a hard workout and it felt great! I haven’t had that feeling in a while after a workout, but I’m glad it’s back because it definitely makes it easier to get back into a routine.

Today’s workout:

Ran on the treadmill for 35 minutes (3.75 miles) at different speeds/inclines.


I like to change things up to make sure the treadmill doesn’t bore me into a walk. It’s happened more than I’m proud to admit.

After running I did a 10 minute stretch routine and an ab circuit that I mostly just made up as I went. Which means it definitely needs some tweaking before it makes a regular appearance in my routine.

I received my New Balance 890v4′s in the mail last week but today was the first time I was able to wear them. I will have a full review of them later – they still need to be worn on a longer run, but as a trial run today I absolutely loved them. They felt much lighter (6.64oz) than my other pairs of New Balance but still kept that cushion feel in the heel. They are also sportin’ an 8mm heel to toe drop which is one of my favorite heel drops.

The nice post it that came with my shoes :) Don’t mind the peanut butter stain…I couldn’t stop myself from digging into the jar after my workout.

My plan is to make it back to the gym in the morning so I have 0 obligations after work tomorrow! Tomorrow evening is decorate the house in Christmas day and I need my schedule cleared for that!

How do you stay entertained on the treadmill?

Favorite time of day to workout?
