National Running Day, Tabatas, & a Sandwich Makeover

Posted Jun 05 2013 5:04pm

Today is National Running Day! 

To celebrate the boys and I walked a mile to VBS this morning.  We had a small crew with the boys and Chase’s friends Cole, Caden and their sister, Maddie!  The boys did great, Maddie only made it about three houses and hitched a ride on my back the rest of the way.  Maddie is four and probably weighs about 30-40 pounds.  Crazy enough this is how much weight I lost on my journey to being fit .  So get out there and celebrate the day with a walk or run.  I plan on getting a long run in later today!

Yesterday I posted a Interval Circuit Workout I put together for my brother and a couple of his workout buddies.  It proved to be a little hard for these muscle buff guys who do absolutely no cardio what so ever.  They made it through 2 of the 3 rounds, kind of. (wink,wink)  Today’s plan of attack; Tabatas!  Here is what I have in store for them.

20 Minute Tabata

I think the 10 second rest will help them push through the workout.

The boys are at VBS this week, so in between training sessions, runs, and errands I have to eat on the run.  Today I packed a Avocado Tomato Feta Chicken Sandwich with a cup of blueberries.  Trust me it is awesome!

Avocado Tomato Feta Chicken Sandwich

  • Avocado Half, sliced
  • 2 Tbsp. Fat Free Feta Cheese
  • Tomato Half, sliced
  • 1/4 cup shredded rotisserie chicken
  • 1/4 cup sprouts
  • 1 Sandwich Thin

Stack each ingredient on sandwich thins, then enjoy!  I found the feta works great between the avocados and tomatoes.
