Workout of the Day: August 30, 2017


I’m back with another workout of the day! To be honest, today I was really tired and did not want to workout at all, but I have gotten to this place with working out that if I don’t do it  I get stir crazy. So, I got out of bed, put on my running shoes, and went for a jog. I think it is very important to listen to your body and know what it can or cannot handle. Although I was tired, I could tell I wanted to challenge myself today. I started off with a really light, 2 mile jog. I didn’t push my pace too hard, but made sure I kept moving. One thing I love to do after a run is to go on a slow walk for 10-20 minutes. It is really important to keep moving and keep your blood flowing after you run. I walked about 20 minutes before starting my workout. As I said, I felt like I wanted to complete a challenging workout today so I hopped on Pinterest and scrolled through some of my favorite workouts. I decided on doing one of my favorites, the MARSOC Short Card. This is a workout developed by the USMC to train candidates in MARSOC training, (at least that is how it has been explained to me, so don’t quote me on that). It is a very challenging workout, but that is why I love it! I decided to take a rest from abs today and didn’t do an ab specific workout. I finished off my workout with some light stretching and a big glass of water.
