Wednesday Workout: Spring Training


I'm not sure why I said "Spring Training", as if I'm training for something really official and cool. I AM planning on a fall half marathon with my friend Stephanie - anyone have ideas for good east coast halves to run? Preferably with costumes? (Ok, costumes are not required but definitely an added bonus). For now I'm just training for me - for the last months I was killing it for this damn wedding (kind of for me, kind of not), and it feels good to just be working to feel good.

Sidenote: Lindsay with goals like "feel good" usually result in Lindsay at happy hour every day because it's spring and what feels better than drinking a cocktail outside! so we'll see how this one goes. I know I need real goals (shoutout to my small group!) and I'm working on it. More on that later.

Anyway. Here are some of my favorites lately:

Running: Winter is finally over which means it is time to get the heck outside!! I've been looking for ways to spice up my runs and lo and behold, Kelly posted her track workouts and interval runs over the last month- thank you! PS just reading the words "interval run" make my stomach turn- cross country flashbacks.

Millionaire Hoy (duh). I'm digging his 35 minute 500 calorie workouts. I know it's unlikely that I'm actually burning 500 calories but it breaks a good sweat.




Yoga by Candace, especially this video with binds. There was daily yoga at our resort in Mexico, and I was the only who showed up TWICE. The instructor helped figure out these binds and now I'm all about it. This is coming from someone who could hardly reach their arms behind their back 2 months ago.



Intense Barre Workout with Lauren Hefez: Her energy! Oh my. How this girl smiles and laughs through the whole thing is crazy to me. But it works!



Yoga Life Fit with Becca: I love her "creative vinyasa flows". I'm only using quotation marks because I'm not quite sure what "creative vinyasa flow" means but I'm down with it.

  2. I am going to have to check out that barre workout!! I have been doing the couch to 5k program and some body beast work outs but I need to throw in some other stuff to keep changing it up. Right now I am doing c25k for me and it is working well, but once I loose interest I will need to come up with a new goal as well.

  7. Thanks for sharing Lindsay. Hmmm good halves with costumes..people seem to dress up for J&A races...they have the Crawlin' Crab in Oct or Harbor Lights in Nov. I like the Navy Air Force Half if you are looking for a local one (but don't see many people dressing up).

  9. Love seeing all these yoga posts in here! It's so great for running, seriously. Every vinyasa instructor does a "creative vinyasa flow" because that's the basis of vinyasa flow yoga - there's no preset poses, or things you "have" to do. It's up the the instructor! Bikrim and Ashtanga yoga is pre-set in a series of poses, so there's no flexibility to the class. Those will all be the same. But a vinyasa class will be different everywhere you go and with whomever you take it with!

    The more you know, right? #namaste
