2012 Workouts

This page will be where I share the ‘AWESOME’, the ‘OKAY’, and the ‘NOT SO GREAT BUT STILL MANAGED TO DO IT’ work-outs that I do each day. I try to combine strength training and cardio because I love them both. Although, right now my FAVORITE workout is a routine designed by LesMills known as BodyPUMP. It is a kick-butt workout that is definitely strength training at it’s best, but also gets the heart rate soaring at the same time.

I just completed my SECOND Indianapolis Mini Marathon (13.1) on May 5, 2012.  It was AMAZING, just like the first one I participated in. I enjoy running, but I do so in spurts.  In addition to running & strength training, I love spinning/cycling, TurboJam (who couldn’t like Chalene?), the occasional Insanity (Shawn T Ba-by!) workout, and devising circuit workouts at the local high-school track with my friend & workout partner!

If you’d like to see what I’m up to & what my body is experiencing on a daily basis, just check in here! Maybe I’ll give you an idea or two on how to change up your exercise routine…or, perhaps you can leave a good comment on how I may add some spice to mine
