Hi everyone! I hope you're having a great weekend! In this week's video I'm showing you guys how I normally exercise when I'm not in Cross Country season. This is really how I've been working out all summer and I've found that I've gotten a lot stronger and definitely stayed fit, so I thought I would share it with you!
I typically run 5 days per week, with normally two speed/strength workouts and all of the runs between 3-6 miles. Around January I started doing weight training, which I've been doing with this pack of cards that my mom found on Amazon. There's an exercise on each card with a suggested number of reps and a description of the exercise. They came in one big pack but my parents and I split them up into 3 packs of about 10 cards each. They've proved to be really good exercises and I'm really happy with them! I started out using two 5 pound weights but now I'm using two 10 pound weights.
One of the things on my summer bucketlist was to try yoga and I did it one morning after doing a workout and I found that it really helped me to not be sore or tight! I've been doing a ten minute yoga routine after every workout ever since!
The ab exercise routine that I've been doing almost everyday for the past two months is one that I found on Colleen Quigley's Instagram page. She's a pro runner for Nike and Olympian so I figured it could be worth a shot to try her routine and it's really good! It is really hard physically but pretty simple to remember. It's 3 exercises that you do in sets of 3,6,9,12,9,6,3, and it should take between 5-10 minutes. I highly recommend it if you're looking for a quick but killer ab workout.
So that is how I typically workout! It's not a killer routine and I don't do everything everyday but it works for me and it definitely has made me stronger. Feel free to try different things out and see how you like it! Also be sure to check out the video and enjoy! :)
