|The grey 8lbs dumbbells I used - the 10s were set up next to them, in case I wanted a challenge! (I didn't.)|
|5 minute warm-up|
|The main circuit, repeated 3 times|
|The slightly different, final circuit - basically substituting the Russian Twists with the 2 Feet Forward/Backward Hops in Place|
|3 minute cool-down|
I have to consciously make an effort to push myself during these workouts, especially if I'm by myself! It's SO EASY to slack off during the workout and go slow. I need to remember that these are JUST as important as my running days, if not more so. If I don't do the squats, then my legs won't be strong to do the mileage. It's just that simple!
Next time, I think I'll force myself to use the 10lbs!
