First day back in a gym in a while

bendoeslife:

And I busted my ass. Relatively.

35 minutes of cardio:

  • 10 Minutes on stairmill (worst 10 minutes of my life by far.
  • 20 Minutes on elliptical on 12 resistance (worst 20 minutes of my life) 
  • 5 Minutes of jump-rope (mostly just to see if I could)

Upper body workout:

  • 4x sets curls 
  • 4x sets pushups
  • 4x sets planks

Bike ride home: uphill. 

A solid first day.

Good Job (y) Keep up the good work :)

…And this is what I’m starting now!
I am registered for the Nike Women’s Marathon on Oct. 14th and chose one of Hal Higdon’s 8 week training schedule. Since I’ll be starting school, I predict that I’ll need a plan that’s more flexible and allows working out around the clock. I also don’t want to be running a lot at night because I’ll be living in a city that’s sketchy after dark. This plan will give me the option of going to the gym (safe even late at night!) more often. 
How I’m making it work for me: 
Monday: no running, more casual walks, cross-training at the gym (cycling, swimming, cardio class, or moderate strength training)
Tuesday: Weight-lifting at gym or BodyPump class (~ 1 hr)
Wednesday:  8-8:30 min/mile pace with University Run Club!
Thursday:  Interval workout on stationary bike, or spinning class, strengthening (~30 min + ~30 min)  
Friday: Easy conversational pace
Saturday: Yoga class, light cross-training, more casual walks
Sunday: Long run day at easy pace
As you can see, I plan to switch some of the days around which the author says is fine. This is not set in stone, and I’ll let you know what I actually decide to do for cross-training days!
Are you starting or following a workout plan too?!

Sarah Fit: My FAVORITE Cardio Interval Workout

sarahfit:

Here it is, my new favorite cardio interval workout. It was one of the most challenging activities that I have done in a long time! Check out the video and workout below.

Benefits:

  • Interval workouts force your body to tap into fat stores more than steady state cardio helping aid weight…

NY takes silver in tech job race 
A new CBRE report shows a 22% increase in high-tech jobs over the last two years, putting the city second only to San Francisco among the top 20 tech heavy cities in the nation, powering rent gains. Beyond the job gains themselves, New York City offers great value to tech startups searching for space relative to other tech sectors:

That prodigious growth has helped drive rents in midtown south, the neighborhood most techies want to call home, up 24% during that two year time period. That growth is seven percentage points above the average rent rise in the city in the period, the report noted. On the other hand the growth in rents logged in midtown south pales in comparison to those seen in the period in the tech-heavy cities of Mountain View, Calif., the San Francisco tech district and East Cambridge, Mass., where office rents soared by 83%, 59% and 28%, respectively.
