Hi divas and happy hump day! I hope that your week is going well. Mine has been busy trying to get caught up at work and trying to work out which days are best for my running training. And it has been hot here in Tennessee so that has been a little difficult.
I try my best to get 5 days of fitness in each week, but some weeks it is just not possible. So I like to combine workouts to get the most out of them I can in the days I decide to get sweaty. One way I do this is to add a little strength training following my mid-week runs. Typically, my mid-week runs are somewhere between 2-3 miles so adding some extra exercises afterwards isn’t a big deal.
If you have been reading this blog, you know that I am in love with my kettlebells. I can get such a good workout in minimal time when I use them. They allow me to work multiple muscle groups in a single exercise and can burn up to 20 calories a minute. They have been great in my quest to strengthen my muscles and improve my running.
I have come up with a short, 15 minute kettlebell workout that will work several of the major muscle groups to use following my shorter runs. This workout is also great to add some strength training into your busy schedule. So be sure to checkout The Diva Post Run Kettlebell Workout.
