I have been loving efficient workouts lately! I just need to get in and out of the gym and get an awesome sweat in! So today I hit the treadmill for some speed:
All at an incline 1- alternating speed (6-7 min miles) and recovery ladder:
30 seconds on speed, 30 seconds recovery ( as you go up the ladder try and maintain the speed)
60 seconds on speed, 60 seconds recovery
1.5 mins on speed, 1.5 recovery
2 mins speed, 2 mins recovery
2.5 mins speed, 2 mins recovery
3 mins speed, 2.5 mins recovery ( as you go down the ladder try to increase the speed)
2.5 mins speed, 2 mins recovery
2 mins speed, 1.5 mins recovery
1.5 mins speed, 1 min recovery
1 min speed, 30 seconds recovery
30 seconds all out sprint
It’s an awesome workout, and makes the time fly by and get some miles in. Earlier in the week I did it with hills, and was dripping sweat!

And a little W love…who doesn’t need more adorable baby smiles in their lives?! If babies and puppies don’t make your day, I’m not sure anything will.

Travel, Tempo, and Fun

Hello Wednesday….
I am traveling this week, and one of the perks is I got to see Miss J while enroute…Isn’t that just the best when travel plans, and friends can be mixed and you get to see someone while traveling. I LOVE it, and J is/ was the best host. We both had some work to get done once I arrived, so we worked, and then enjoyed a fantastic lunch here.

It was so so yummy! I went with the enchilada’s a cheese one and a chicken one- we started of course with chip, and they had 3 different dips for them, we also got my favorite- queso and guac!!! So good! After lunch we took this lovey for a walk, I loved how we are downtown but it still has lots of green areas and parks.
June 17 1After our walk we headed to a gym my friend loves to try a Curved Treadmill class. If you have never run on a Curve treadmill- there is no motor so to speed up you run further forward on the belt, to slow down you run further back, it takes a little getting used to, but it really helps you focus on balance, form, and speed you yourself can generate, I love it. The class ran in 4 cycles, tread’s, floor, tread’s, floor ( or vice versa) and each cycle was 9 min’s, with 2 mins break. It flew by and I love the teachers style, he focused on a lot of independent leg – which as a runner I LOVE!!! If your ever in Dallas, check out this class. I loved it! This photo makes the teacher look like it’s an 80s workout video- I swear he was not ha, and his music was super good and made you want to sweat.

Then it was off to another meal- I seriously could get used to eating all this yummy food. Everything I have had was amazing! Our next stop was dinner here. It was Epic. We got a flat bread, a tempura broccoli, asparagus, and the worlds best Mac and Cheese.
June 17 2They “theme” of the menu was small plates but we 110% did not leave hungry it was so good. The flat bread was fig and goat chesse and just amazing! I need to make it at home ASAP! Of course the company was the best part of the day/ night.
June 17 3  Tonight I am over the moon excited to try this place. It is a little road side “shack” that serves an amazing menu of taco’s. Look how adorable this place looks!
