Working Moms 40 Min. Pyramid Cardio Workout

I took my own advise after writing my last post, 5 Tips to Help Working Moms Find Time to Workout, and took to the gym last night to complete my first workout in my fitness plan for working moms.

I completed a quick, but oh so effective, interval workout on the treadmill.

Pyramid Cardio Workout

I made sure to push myself every minute and keep my pace high for the sprints. On the way up the pyramid, my sprint was at 6.5 and for my recovery, I stayed at a jog of 5.0. After the peak (4 min sprint/recovery) I had to bring my recovery pace down to a fast walk around 4.0 – 4.5. But the last couple of rounds I kicked it into high gear at a sprint of 7.5!!

I was sweating within 10 minutes and I already feel like this workout is going to help me get faster too.

And guess what the best part is? It was only 40 minutes, I felt completely satisfied with the way I pushed myself AND I got home in time for a good hour of playtime with Rylee before she went to bed!

Tonight I am planning on a full body circuit workout in 30 minutes! And more playtime with Rylee of course!
