One thing I always try to maintain with my workouts is excitement. Sure, I many not jump for joy at the thought of running, but like a lot of people, I get deathly bored if I’m doing an exercise for a long period of time. I will probably never love the elliptical for a cardio workout, but last night I decided to switch it up and try a a few different workouts.
To start, I did 10 mins. of interval training, alternating between 30 secs of running and 30 secs of sprinting. My goal is to keep working up until 15 minutes. After ten minutes of serious sweating, I headed down to the elliptical and did 20 minutes of intervals. Why does my foot fall asleep every time I use the elliptical?! I finished up with 10 minutes on the bike. I loved how different this workout was from what I usually do. I’ll definitely be doing this more often!
This morning, I wanted to use up a few over ripe bananas, so a smoothie was calling my name!
In the mix:
- 1 c. skim milk
- 1 1/2 overripe bananas
- 3 frozen peaches
- 1/2 tbsp. wheat germ
- 1/2 tbsp. ground flax
Okay, it’s off to work!
What is your favorite workout that keeps you from being bored?
