Friday, I did my first workout of the year. I wanted to make it something I could be excited about, so I opted for speed-work and testing out the Nike Training Club app.
|So excited to wear my new shorts from Matt's mom for speed-work!|
|I love the "track" around this lake. It's perfect for speed-work.|
|All smiles at the end! (FYI - FitBit review is coming soon!)|
|The "beginner" level will fit in well with my running schedule.|
Things I love about this app: There are a ton of workouts to choose from, the app provides photos and explanations for each exercise, and if you choose to do the entire workout, a coach talks you through it the whole time.
Drawbacks: You do need some equipment at home (mostly dumbbells and medicine balls) and a place to spread out.

Plus, now I can familiarize myself with these moves so I can start doing HIIT without looking like a moron!
Have you used the Nike Training Club app?
What speed-work do you prefer: fartleks, intervals, or tempo runs?
