Workout Wednesday: Throwback Edition

Happy Wednesday! Not only is it time for another Workout Wednesday (WOW) linkup, it's also our first ever themed linkup! We are kicking off with an awesome theme: Throwback Wednesday. Totally makes me think of this classic Nelly and Kelly Rowland song a friend posted for Throwback Thursday last week. It's been stuck in my head ever since, and is hopefully stuck in your head now too. You're welcome.

If Dilemma and other throwbacks aren't your thing, you can post whatever you want because hey, it IS a party. But if you like the idea of following the weekly theme, you can find them all here:

For my post this week, I'm sharing my Free August Workout Calendar circa August 2013. 

It was really interesting to see what a difference a year makes in my workout routine. The biggest differences are probably 1) how much  more consistent I was with my workouts and, 2) how much less running I was doing back before I decided to become a real runner in 2014. I was honestly in way better shape last summer, so I definitely need to try to incorporate more HIIT and strength training, while still working towards all my running goals.

Now it's your turn! Put your favorite old school jams on and join the party!

  1. Oooh fun, I'm going to get on the theme next week!

    Dilemma was EVERYTHING to me in middle school!

    1. Haha thanks Lindsay for some reason I knew you'd be into it. Try making a Spotify radio station based on Dilemma. Ah-MAZING! :)

  2. Oooooh themessss. This fall I am planning on writing more Wednesday posts (now they are randoms or writing rest days hehe)...can't wait to join WOW.

    1. Yay so happy you'll be joining and that you like the themes! Can't wait! :)

  3. Wooops somehow missed theme! Maybe next week :) your calendar looks well balanced. I haven't graduated to actually planning everything in advance. So far I think I will definitely go to my Crossfit groups on Saturdays and long run on Sundays. The rest of the week remains flexible.

    1. No worries, Michele! It's a party, do what you want:) Crossfit + long run sounds super hard core!

  4. A great reminder to throw in some different workouts to the mix. Now to remember to check on the theme BEFORE posting next week. HAHAHA!

    1. Thanks Katie! No worries about the theme. It's just a totally optional and fun thing we started, so up to you whether you want to do it or not :)
