Twelve Days of Fitness Blog Challenge: Day Seven

Today is Day Seven of the Twelve Days of Fitness Blog Challenge.  It's also the last day of 2013!  It's been a great year here at Fit Armadillo.  After training clients for years in New England, this year was my first year working as a personal trainer and group fitness instructor in Houston, TX.  It was also my  first year accepting fitness clients online!  Having my own training business has been amazing and I couldn't have done it without the awesome support of all of my fans and clients. Thank you!!!

My Day Seven Workout:
For my last workout of year I wanted to go on a nice bike ride, but when I took my bike out of the car at Terry Hershey Park it wouldn't turn correctly. So, I just put it back in the car and went on the longest run since spraining my ankle :) I logged it on my Garmin Forerunner.  Here's a little overview:

Map of my run:

My splits by mile:

Here's a small pic of the park. Gotta love the water fountains scattered along the route:

I found this bench and did a mini circuit for fun. Ten step ups each side, 20 incline push-ups and 12 dips times two.

One cool thing about this park are the mile markers. Every 1/4 mile you get a check in on how far you've gone.  Check it out:

  1. Love those splits. Thx for reminding me that a workout can happen anywhere;-). Thx for keeping us inspired!

    1. I love using benches at the park-it's a great way to sneak in some circuit training :) Ah yes, working on my splits after some injuries lately. I REALLY wanted to go on that bike ride too. I haven't had my husband assess the bike yet so we'll have to see what I did (hopefully it's repairable). Glad this challenge is helping to keep you inspired :)
