10K training and An EMOM workout

I don't know what it is this time around, but race training has me feeling so tired lately. Or maybe I'm just not sleeping great....or maybe I'm not eating as well as I should. I don't know what it is yet, but something has been making me so tired.

Monday evening I went out for a run with my sister in law, Laura. I didn't take pictures of anything because one of my favorite things about these runs is that I don't use my phone for anything except if we got into some kind of emergency which hasn't ever happened. We went 4 miles and got to chat the whole time so it made the run feel really short. After this run, I felt like my IT band was really tight again so I spent some good time foam rolling and stretching. For whatever reason, I've always had a hard time making time to stretch and foam roll after a run so I've been working really hard to make sure I get that in.

Tuesday was strength training day again, and I did an EMOM workout that I wanted to share with you guys. An EMOM workout is a workout where you switch exercises every minute on the minute. So here is what I did.

Round 1: Chest press, lateral arm raise, Shoulder press, supermans, bicep curls, upright row, bent over row, side planks, lunges. 20 seconds of rest in between each move, and a minute in between round 1 and round 2.

Round 2: Skull crushers, elevated mountain climbers, tricep dips, plank, clam shells, lateral leg raises, bridge, lunges, and squats. 

I used medium to heavy weights and body weight. I love EMOM style workouts because it feels like the workout goes really fast since you only have 1 minute per move.

After that workout, I needed some good protein so I made an egg and sausage sandwich! 

Wednesday was a rest day so instead of any workout, I played dr with V and he made sure my knee was doing well. 

What is your favorite way to do strength training? 

When was your last rest day?
