6 mile run this weekend felt good! The humidity was intense even at 6 am but I pushed through and got out of my comfort zone. My legs were tired and I was definitely “running with my heart.” My runs around 6 miles or more are great fat burning workouts for me. I really can see more muscle definition when I combine longer runs and weight training.
I finished my run with lots of water to replenish fluids and a post run snack. This smoothie with avocado, spinach, and pear was delicious. I definitely moved out of my comfort zone during my run and this was a well deserved treat
After recovery, I followed up my cardio with some triceps and chest work. I did 4 sets of tricep pressdowns alternating with bosu ball close grip push ups to burn out my triceps.
