Uphill Climb Interval Walk

Well heyyyy there. Fancy meeting you here this afternoon!

How’s your day going so far today? Good? Great? Did you get it started with a good breakfast? Maybe a great workout? I was lucky enough to be able to get a little bit of both in with mine, so let me go ahead and give ya the skinny…starting with breakfast.

In between sessions this morning, I had about a half hour to spare, so I swung by Starbucks for a quite bite to eat.

Best part about this meal? It didn’t cost me a penny thanks to the gift card from Christmas that I just recently came across in my purse. Gotta love that, right? I had totally forgotten about it!

Next up, a workout. I kept things on the light side today and put together a quick, 30 minute walking routine that ended up looking like this:

Uphill Climb Interval Walk

It wasn’t the most challenging routine I’ve ever done, but it was a great way to spend the 30 minutes that I had available without sweating buckets. (For those of you who may be interested, I also put together a modified, beginner version which you can find HERE.)

And hey, if you’ve got access to a medicine ball, try pairing up the interval walk with this quick abs routine from Fitness Magazine. It came through in my email this morning and I’m totally diggin’ it; I love any core routine that doesn’t include crunches!

I’m hoping to have some time later to squeeze in a quick yoga session, but we’ll see how that goes since I have a pretty busy afternoon. (I’ve got to make sure that I meet my goal this week, since it is the last week of the June Yoga Challenge and all!)

Then again, all that talk about ice cream this morning is kind of making me want to spend my time finishing my pint of Ben & Jerry’s off too… Winking smile

Stay tuned later this evening…I’ve got a giveaway headed your way!

    Incline workouts ARE really good for a more “toned down” type of workout, all the while your blood is a-flowin’ through your veins! muahahah :) And I didn’t know Starbucks sold those wraps! It sounds like a rather smart option for Sbucks. Have a beautiful and blessed day Courtney!

    I came across a gift card, also leftover from Christmas, just last week. However the product of your gift card was much healthier…mine was for my favorite Chicago deep dish pizza! It’s shipped on dry ice, and is utterly dangerous.

    I haven’t tried that flavor but I did just stumble upon Ben & Jerry’s peanut butter banana flavored Greek FROYO. Holy yum, it is delicious! Banana Greek Froyo with peanut butter swirled around, I had a hard time walking away! Plus it has 6 g of protein per 1/2 cup serving. Awesome. Seems like Ben & Jerry’s has really kicked up their flavors recently…

    I haven’t tried a wrap from starbucks, but I can’t wait to now! I love getting drinks there, but the pastries don’t quite fill me up….at least not for long with all the sugar! You should definitely eat some Ben and Jerry’s! Summer = ice cream time and ben and jerry’s is fairly natural considering the unique flavors! I’ve been eating their greek yogurt blueberry one, it’s awesome and not too sugary!

    Just wanted to let you know that I did the uphill walk today as part of my workout- loved it! :) Cranked up the speed to 5.0 instead of 4.5, only because my 4.5 is pretty much awkward jogging/ walking, so I figured I would just up it to make it ‘real’ jogging…haha! Hope that kind of makes sense!
    Thanks for sharing!! :D
