"What's your workout routine?
I've been waffling over whether to share this on here for a long time. There are too many of us who beat ourselves up over this kind of stuff (I try very hard not to), and I think that taking care of your body should be a positive, personal thing. So. I'm going to be completely honest here and just hope that it helps or inspires someone, not drives them to assault.
I'm constantly switching up my workouts, but they always involve running. And they're always something I love to do. I never exercise to improve one body part or look a certain way, though I admit that like those results, too. But that's not why I do it. I do it because it gets me high.
Today's workout, for example, is two two mile repeats at seven minutes a mile with four minutes of (light running) rest in between. It's finished with four one hundred meter sprints and a two mile walk. Later, I'll do a P90x plyometrics video.
Tomorrow I might do nothing. It just depends what I feel like.
In general, right now I'm running about thirty miles a week, five to six days, with a lot of medium level speed work and one longer day. I also like to take three mile walks a couple of times a week around my neighborhood, do a (random) P90x video once a week (to toss things up), and hit the gym two or three times a week (whenever Andrew wants to go). At the gym we mostly do free weights, body weight leg exercises, push ups, pull ups and sit ups without rest. We're usually there for about forty five minutes.
I'll probably do this routine for the next three or four months and then completely change the entire thing. I like to keep it fresh.
Some of our other favorite activities that we cycle into the mix are jump roping, basketball, football, biking, elliptical, tennis, and stair workouts. We've done a lot of all of those the last couple of years. I also try to twist Andrew's arm into doing drills and yoga on a semi regular basis but he hates them both. I used to do pilates a lot, but haven't done it in eons.
Anyway, I think that's about it.
Just keep in mind that not every body is the same or will react the same. Do what you enjoy and what feels right for you!
"Hello, I am still trying to locate your Born boots. I left a comment on your blog but didn't see an answer. I cannot find them on the Born website.
Sorry, it can be difficult to get back to everyone right away.
I bought the boots at an outlet. They are only marked Born, so I have no idea what the style name is. They are marked with serial number W62173, similar to many of the boots pictured on their website, but it's not coming up in their search.
I suggest contacting customer service and asking if they still carry them anymore. It may be last year's model.
You take time out of your day and make an effort to let me know that you are unsubscribing without reason and then you don't even sign your name? I don't know if I should thank you or tell you to do a better job of insulting me. Go hard or go home, you know?
