A Morning Workout

by Meghann on May 6, 2011

Good Morning!

Happy Friday!

I’m on my way to Disney to spend the day with my Sister for her 24th birthday (it’s on Sunday!)


(photo from her 21st birthday. man, time flies!)

But, before I go I wanted to share an awesome gym workout I had this morning.


I discovered this little treadmill workout from Tina’s Blog.

It’s called the 5-4-3-2-1 Treadmill Work Out.

  • 5 mins @ 6.0
  • 4 mins @ 6.5
  • 3 mins @ 7.0
  • 2 mins @ 7.5
  • 1 min @ 8.0

I repeated it twice. Once at 1.0 incline. Again at 2.0

Total time: 30 mins.


I developed my own arm routine today

  • Bicep Dumbbell Curls – 12 lbs – 10 reps – 3 sets
  • Overhead Dumbbell Press – 15 lbs – 12 reps – 3 sets
  • Overhead Tricep Extension – 20 lbs (single dumbbell) – 12 reps – 3 sets
  • Single Arm Dumbbell Bent Over Row – 15 lbs – 12 reps – 3 sets
  • Chest Fly – 15 lbs – 12 reps – 3 sets
  • Cable Lat Pulldown – 4 (weight?) – 12 reps – 3 set

I didn’t have time to do much, but it was enough to squeeze in a 15 minute routine. πŸ™‚



Cereal bowl full of Kashi

  • 1 cup Kashi H2H
  • 1/3 cup Kashi Go Lean Crisp
  • 1/3 cup Kashi Goddess Grains < – new?
  • Plain Yogurt
  • Strawberries
  • Blueberries


I <3 Berries!

Off to Disney!

Happy (Early) Birthday Kelly!!

Oh I love how simple that workout is to remember! I’ve seen sooo many treadmill workouts that seem sooo complicated – but that is doable!
Have a good time πŸ™‚

I love that treadmill workout! I do something similar, except I increase the incline as the speed increases…because I love to punish my legs πŸ™‚

Have a great time at Disney!!! I love Disney and am always so jealous when you go.

Also, glad you liked that cardio workout. It makes time fly to me! I was so glad to find it from Iowa Girl Eats and adapt it with the extra incline. Fun and tough.

Meghann, I met you in Nashville during the race. I was the “No Meat Athlete” that you took a picture of and posted on your blog. I am trying to start up my own blog and I was wondering if I could use that picture you took of me during the race because I love it! Do you mind???

oh… and Happy Birthday Kelly!! πŸ™‚
