I have a couple things to share with you – both quick and easy! A delicious, healthy dinner and a speedy (but sweaty) workout.
While I usually prefer to get in the majority of my workouts in the early mornings, some days I find myself needing to get my legs moving after work or not having enough time in the mornings to get in everything in! If that’s the case, I usually opt for a cardio based workout like a cycling class, a run outside or some treadmill work. After work I also don’t usually like to commit as much time to a workout – I have important things to get to like dinner, wine, and Netflix!
Here is a sample of a quick treadmill sprint set. This can be modified! In parenthesis I will rate on a scale of 1-10 (max) my effort. Adjust your speed to reflect effort.
NOTE: I would recommend sticking to the prescribed number of sets and rest periods – though obviously you can make change to suit your preferences. Rest between work groups while you change speed – 20 to 60 seconds between each. And, because rest periods are so short I recommend simply jumping off the treadmill, resting with hands on handles and legs on either side of the moving tread during rest. If you aren’t used to jumping on and off a moving treadmill – start slow!
And now to the good part! This is a really delicious and satisfying dinner that’s not only health but really easy to make. Especially after you’ve worked up an appetite on the treadmill.
