Today’s workout was definitely what one of my client’s calls “beast mode”.
My Shirt Says: “It’s Time For… BEAST MODE!!!” Let me explain…
My client, Katie, is so much fun to train because she pretty much trains like me- CRAZY!!! She will rock any workout I give her without complaining (most of the time ). It’s just awesome! (Shout out to Katie!!!!)
Anyways, one of our favorite phrases to use when we are having an awesome session is BEAST MODE. So, for her birthday, I made me and her shirts to wear at the gym when we train. We still haven’t worn it yet, but I decided to wear it for my very first day of speed work.

I have been trying to switch up things in my workout routine. Researching marathon training programs for over a year now, it’s pretty obvious that speed training is key to PRing. Yet, whenever I read a training program, I focus solely on the miles and not on what KIND of miles. But that all changed today.
I had such a good time pushing my lungs to their limit! I honestly cannot remember the last time when I ran that fast or pushed myself that hard. This, along with yoga, will definitely be on my schedule for exercise.
After I got home, I completed the following at home workout that I like to call “The Waltz”. My family is very musical, so many times, when I am coming up with workouts, I think of supersets like they’re time signatures or lyrics.
Today, it was all about the 3/4 time signature; also known as the traditional timing for The Waltz~
Each exercise was completed in groups of 4, completing each for 1 set. I then rested 30 seconds and did the 4 exercises again for a total of 3 sets. Get it??? 3/4??? Yeah, I’m a music geek at heart
- Aaand then this happened. Seriously, though, I have NO idea where those cookie dough bites came from.
- And, come on, my two favorite colors are pink and green so I HAD to get the sprinkles! Plus, I had blueberries so it all evens out.
- With this trip to Yogurtland came…
My lovely sister who instigated this trip…
My annoyed boyfriend who is still getting used to the whole bring-your-camera-everywhere-you-go-and-take-pictures-of-people-while-they’re-eating-for-your-blog thing…
Proof that I should quit personal training and become a photographer. Because, clearly, God has given me this awesome talent…
And the clear evidence that, no matter how much sun I get, I will always be a ghost when I use my flash to take pictures.
Have a wonderful night, everyone!
