6.3 miles- Trail run
Today my running pal and I hit The Wells. Even though Eau Claire is a decent sized city, home to about 60,000 people, I have never been to or heard of The Wells. The Wells is a highway of intertwining dirt trails, throughout a wooded area and is apparently where a lot of the local high school cross country meets are held. We didn't think we would be able to make up 6 miles running around, but we were able to by making all sorts of loops. Even though we may have retraced some of our steps, I didn't notice since we were surrounded by nature an it really just felt like an adventure. My legs fatigued a little quicker than normal, but my knees appreciated the softer terrain for a change.
Post-run: Homemade granola bar and this a hour later...

Total Body Tabata
This is the workout I did yesterday at the gym with 1 minute rest between tabatas...
I devised this workout so that each tabata would have at least one lower body, one upper body and one core move. After the first tabata, I was like, "ehh, this is going to be easy", but when I got to the third and fourth ones, my muscles were definitely starting to fatigue. If you try this make sure you listen to your body and get a good cool down in afterwards.
Alright folks, I'm off to do some cleaning, stress out over my taxes because I just realized I am missing a W-2 and go to work. Have a wonderful almost Friday :)
Today's Tip: Mix things up by running on a different terrain than you normally do, you will physically be able to feel how your muscles are working differently.
