I’ll be the first to admit that quarantine hasn’t *exactly* been my glow up that I wanted it to be. It took me around 2 months to actually get into a routine, and of course now that I am finally in a routine, I have to move in two weeks. Amazing. Well, regardless, I will be moving with a new routine and a new style of working out that I actually really enjoy!
I have always been a runner, there’s no question about that. However, running can really only get you so far. If you want to tone and build muscle, you have to incorporate resistance training to some degree. I’ve done a few different programs, my all time favorite being the Bikini Body Guide by Kayla Itsines. I also love Peloton and Madeline Moves. All of those different programs are expensive, and I didn’t love them ENOUGH solo to commit to any one of them. That’s why I have finally started to write my own workouts, and I am doing them right as you are! I am still learning how to write a workout, what is too much, making sure I can reassess how my body feels, etc.
Here is an example of a week of workouts: NOT including one longer weekend run. This weekend run can be done on either Saturday or Sunday and is entirely up to you and your running capability!
