HIIT the Track workout

Happy Friday everybody!  I am so glad the weekend is finally here. I think it is supposed to rain all weekend which is a bummer, but I am still looking forward to not having to get up in the morning!

Work it out!
Today I finally made my own workout.  I love HIIT type workouts where you get the most bang for your buck time.  This one took me a little under half an hour to get done and my legs are on fire in the best possible way.  If you try it let me know.  I am probably the world's weakest lunger so this may be way easier for other people haha.

Does everyone else call them grapevines? If you need a demo here is a great short clip.  Some people call it karaoke or caraoca I think.  (Video is not me btw...someday I need to find a photographer!)

Also "plank-ups" are just going from a forearm plank and pushing up to a straight arm plank then back down to forearm.  I try to switch which arm I lead with every other time.

I am very much not a professional trainer nor a professional athlete. I am a college admissions counselor who likes to workout and now likes to share those workouts. If it doesn't feel right for you, please don't do it!

Eat up!
Ok I know I said I was doing the What I Ate Wednesday link up starting next week, but I just realy want to share two awesome things I ate today.  Hopefully you don't mind.  Because food is great.

 For breakfast I made chia pudding with craisins in the jar with the very last of my cookie butter.  I'm pretty bummed I ran out, but it made a great breakfast.
Then I had this epic salad for dinner.  With sun-dried tomato  vinaigrette. And yes I did use goldfish as croutons. And they were amazing!

P.S. I am linking up this week with Fitness Friday hosted by Jill Conyers. 
Be sure to check it out for lots of awesome blogs!

I hope you have a great weekend and that you get to spend some extra time with the ones you love!


  1. I never thought to combine my favorite, track workouts, with HIIT. Or maybe I've been doing HIIT all along and just never called it that. Thanks for linking up!
