Fitness Friday + Basketball Court Workout

WOO!!!  It’s Friday!  I am on a perpetual weekend here in Arizona but I still get excited for the actual weekend 😉  It’s been another great week of workouts.  I have been definitely enjoying time with my family but it has been nice being able to sneak off and get a good sweat session in :)  Without further ado, another Fitness Friday is here!

Fitness Friday


Sunday 4-Mile Run

Sunday I did a 4-mile run around my parent’s home in central Phoenix.  There is an awesome canal path that runs for miles!  The interesting thing to note in the above picture is the humidity … do you see it??  It was 65% humidity in PHOENIX.  That is so rare and I was hot.  I thought I had left the moisture back in Georgia but boy was I wrong!


MONDAY Scheduled rest day.  I had to work Monday morning so I was on my feet most of the day.  My legs were pretty heavy from going hard last week so I knew it was time for a rest.


TUESDAY Unschedule rest day.  My aunt and grandmother left early Tuesday morning so my normal gym time went out the window.  I had planned on taking a CrossFit class at the local Lululemon with my friend Kelley but she had to cancel last minute.  I was kind of relieved 😉



Wednesday Workout


Wednesday I ran for 30 minutes on the treadmill and felt pretty good.  I almost got to 3.3 miles for an average of 9:10/mile.  After running I did Meg’s “Butt Kicker Leg Workout” and it did just that 😉 I am STILL feeling it today!



Thursday Workout


I started with a slow, easy mile on the treadmill to warm-up my legs.  Then I hit the basketball court for an AWESOME workout!  After smoking my legs and knocking out some cardio I did some planks to help keep the core tight 😉


AND here is the workout I promised you…
