Hi! I hope you had a fun and relaxing Memorial Day Weekend. Our weekend was rather low-key as we anticipated #StormAlberto, which hasn’t been more than heavy rain for us. I’ll tell ya, Florida weather is something else. I have yet to see why it’s deemed The Sunshine State when there is constant rain and thunderstorms in the forecast. Take me back to that dry California summer heat, please.
Weather aside, I have a new workout for you today! Somewhere between chatting about the importance of rest days and sharing a glute workout, I mentioned posting my weekly workouts here on the blog again — for personal accountability, and to offer workout inspiration and ideas to you. The past couple of weeks have consisted mostly of quick at-home workouts. Between traveling and the increase in humidity, gym workouts and long runs have been more difficult to come by.
I came up with this quick workout while I was in California. We had some time in the afternoon before the wedding, so I did this basic bodyweight workout in my friend’s yard. It probably took all of 20 minutes, but it got the blood pumping. Sometimes, a short workout is better than none!
