When we started writing the She Sweats 12-Week Run Builder, I wasn't sure if I would actually use it for my workouts or not, since I typically do exercises more geared like our original She Sweats 12-Week Transformation, but I was convinced the more and more we delved into the plan. It's truly an amazing workout and I'm excited about the addition of the extra cardio. Yes, I said cardio!
You see... this plan is designed specifically with the runner in mind, however, the Cardio Queen that wants to build muscle while still being allowed to pound out her time (well, SOME of her time) on the road or on the cardio deck at the gym. Just be forewarned - you can't do cardio everyday! The plan focuses on 2-3 days of cardio per week along with strength training.
I've decided not to post my before and after pictures until I get done with each segment (there are 5 segments total) so you will be able to see my progressions through each segment. Don't worry - the first segment is just 2 weeks so we will see what gains/losses I have made in two weeks! Don't go anywhere - stay tuned for that!
My one-mile time was 10:42. I know this isn't really impressive, but I'm not much of a runner and it is my real time. After all, I could have just written something down! I am really looking forward to seeing that time diminish over the course of the workout.
I've completed two strength training workouts per the plan so far and I love them! Let's just say the plan is worth it for leg day alone! One of my favorite body parts groups to lift and this workout does not skimp on the quality of leg workouts. LOVE IT!
That's it - short and simple! Until next time!
