More speed and my try at TRX

I know I have been slacking on my own blog this week but you can find my running advice on Just Me Plus My Trainer, I was happy to write a guest post for Tara who is training for her 2nd half marathon this fall.

Wednesday was a long, but very productive day beginning with intervals at sunrise, what could be better?! Okay maybe sipping coffee at sunrise, but not for a group of crazy runners...
  • 1 mile warm up
  • 1/4 mile speed 1/4 mile easy Repeat x 6
  • 1 mile cool down
My realization after the intervals, push harder! Well duh! I was able to run faster on my final repeat and it still felt like I had more, so why not give it all that first through fifth intervals too?
Then a very productive day at work where I finally feel like I am chipping away at my new responsibilities. After work I finished the day with 1 hour with my trainer who had some fun planned for me: TRX Suspension work...


Wow, what a workout! No wonder it was first done by Navy SEALS. There is no core rest, okay basically no rest for any part of your body since you are engaged, balancing, pushing, pulling, etc all the time just to hold yourself up. No wonder it gets such praise and the benefits are numerous.

Back to my crazy life and looking forward to the next workout...

Have you done any new workouts lately? What do you think of TRX?


  1. I have been using TRX for the past year with my trainer and I love it!! If I could have one at home I would

    1. I would love one at home but would probably break myself without the help!

  2. So cool that you got to try TRX! We just got it at our gym, but I think you have to sign up and pay to use it... I want to figure that out. Looks so fun, and challenging!

    1. It was a great workout, try it out if you can!

  3. i've seen a lot of this on blogs. it looks like a good workout!

    1. It was much tougher then it looked but I can feel the workout even still today!
