Move It Monday – Every Sweat Counts!

Anyone who says you can’t work up a serious sweat in 15 minutes has obviously never worked out with Chris Downing!

Stop assuming what ISN’T possible and start thinking about what IS, and then put yourself into action and DO IT!

For the record, doubting and naysaying burns approximately 0 calories 😉

Saturday Sweat – Running In Nice Weather

Great weather (at least at the hour I was out there!) for some running… continuing the quest towards 175 miles!

It was 60° out when I ran, which is pretty cool after the summer of humidity we have had – I am personally looking forward to Fall for running purposes. The summer temps coupled with humidity are not very kind to a runner!

Racked up 4.2 miles today, clocking the first at 8:56 and the last at 6:27 – this splits stuff is pretty awesome and definitely shows me I usually finish stronger than I start!

It was also nice to be able to breathe while running

What’s YOUR Saturday sweat?

Saturday Sweat – New Distance PR!

WELL THEN!

That’s one way to get your Saturday sweat on! 🙌🏼

I was inspired after a chat with a fellow runner, one who is a large part of why I even took this summer challenge on, so since today is a rest day in my program, I set out to do my thang, log a couple of miles and just keep on keeping on… every bit helps, right? (Right!)

I haven’t run this far since I was a teenager, and for some reason as yet unknown, I did it the day after an all-HIIT leg day?! What the hell was my thought process there?! 😩

I survived… I’m sore, but I feel a little bit like a badass, and this means I’m just a little over a mile from my next feat – a 10k!

What’s your Saturday sweat?

 

Saturday Sweat – LIIFT 4 Leg Day!

What in the actual eff just happened?! 😩

Ohhh, that’s right, LEG DAY.

I swapped rest day yesterday because my right shoulder was ping-a-linging, so all my fellow test groupers had posted and warned me leg day ain’t nothing to eff with, but shoooot! That’s a sweat fest! 💦

(I stand by my “if you still look good when you’re done, you didn’t work hard enough” mantra 😉)

You joining me for LIIFT 4?

 

Saturday Sweat – Summer Challenge In Full Effect

We are in a heat wave… a humid one at that! I don’t love humidity – I don’t mind a dry heat, though.

But if I am to meet the 175 mile summer challenge, I need to get some runs in, so they have to happen early, before the sun warms everything up, or they won’t happen!

It was already about 74 degrees when I ran at 0630 today, so my 2 miles felt more like 20, and I was full body drenched!

But, I will say… it feels good to rise above the exhaustion, the heat, and any other factor, and GET IT DONE. There is something extremely powerful within that, and that is the very feeling that I aim for!

Are you getting your sweat on today?

Move It Monday – Memorial Day

There may be some people out there all “today’s a holiday, no need to workout”, whereas MY mindset is today may be a holiday BUT it’s a holiday HONORING those who can no longer get their sweat on; a day honoring the very people who fought so that I COULD!

A great way to honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice is to get your sweat on in their memory and honor YOURSELF by moving your {{capable}} body.

A heartfelt thank you to all our brave servicemen/women 💕🇺🇸

Go sweat!
