This training cycle I tried to keep it interesting by adding speed work and hill work, but I also added one (and then later two) days of strength/core work. The problem with that is it can get monotonous too if you let it.
This week I didn't feel like doing Jillian Michaels 6 Week Six-Pack on our core work day. Enter: the internet.
If you didn't know by now, the internet is a wonderful place if you know how to use it. You can find a million different workouts online, for free or minimal cost.
I searched Hulu, I don't have Hulu Plus but if you do there are even more fitness shows on there, and found an intense 20 minute workout called Six Pack Abs: Incredible Abs. Seriously, you should try this workout.
Then, I was on DailyMile and someone posted this workout from Blogilates.
You really should check out her bog, she has a TON of other workouts and videos. I found another workout of hers on Pinterest (another great place to look for workouts) and I really want to try both of these sometime soon.
And just now while I was researching for this blog post (I always switch the "6" and "Six" in the title of Jillian Michaels DVD), I found some Jillian Michaels full workouts on YouTube. Here's No More Trouble Zones. Actually if you subscribe to channels on YouTube you should subscribe to BeFiT, they have a lot of workout videos posted online.
Like I said, it can be confusing and overwhelming, but if you know how to look you can find some great workouts online. The internet can be an amazing invention at times!
What do you do to keep your workouts interesting? Where do you look for new and different workouts? Share please!
