Arms & Core Workout


I woke up this morning to a beautiful sunrise; the day is already starting off great 🙂

I decided on an arm & core workout today.  I hate doing arms…probably because my arms are so weak.  I told myself I would do arms yesterday after my run but I honestly forgot…i was just to excited that Chewbacca did 1.4 miles with me 🙂

I just downloaded a new app on my phone called Interval Timer.  I used this as my motivation to do an arm & core workout.  By doing it before my run today prevented me from using the excuse that “i forgot” haha

**I did all the arm exercises with 8 lb weights in both hands (except the tricep dips)

I really like this new app!  It does all the timing for me so I do not have to constantly reset my timer.

The temperature was perfect outside today for my run.  I did 4.8 miles in 40 mins.  That is an 8:20 pace!  That is really good for me 🙂  This made my morning even better.  During my run I past the Page Farms and I could see there pumpkins popping up in there fields….I can not wait to go pick out pumpkins!

For breakfast,  I made Pumpkin Oatmeal….it really hit the spot.

I would do Core everyday over arms!
