Try it Thursday: 20, 20, 20!

Happy Thursday everyone! As we used to say in our Thursday night workout class: Thursday is the new Friday! Enjoy tonight, because all you have is one more day of work…and you can do one day of anything!IMG_20140128_183534053

Today you are going to set your HIIT timer, your watch, or clock on your exercise equipment for 20 seconds of work, 20 seconds of recovery, and you will repeat this 20 times.
During the 20 seconds of work, you are going to increase your intensity to an RPE of 8-10. I must remind you that this is how you perceive how hard you are working. If you are a beginner, or recovering from injury, you may even start out walking at a fast pace and calling that an 8. This number will change the more fit you become. Go hard on the work, and easy on the rest. Time will fly by and in 13 minutes and 20 seconds you will have done a killer cardio workout. Feel free to use HIIT 2-3 times a week in your fitness regimen for optimal fat loss and strength gain!

Today I trained down by the Thames in Richmond. It’s part of the longest river in England, it has 45 locks, is home to over 25 species of fish, boasts three areas of outstanding natural beauty and it’s the only river in Europe to have a national trail follow its entire length. –www.visitthames.co.uk After the run, I changed playlists and took a refreshing walk taking in the sights, smells, and colors Spring had to offer along the River.

This picture capture the English sky behind me. It was a mild day, and the sun peaked in and out. I am a but disheveled, but that's how you should be after a workout...right?!
