I have long been a buyer and wearer of Target® C9 sports bras, and now more than ever, I love that the Target® C9 brand makes clothes that I can not only work out in, but I can live in! Whether I’m going for a walk, cleaning up the house, or just relaxing, I want to feel good about what I’m wearing regardless of what I’m doing in it!
The fall has always been a time of year that inspires me focus on my fitness goals. I don’t know if it’s because the summer tends to be a bit more carefree or that I don’t really enjoy working out outside during the hot and humid summer months, but I absolutely love the motivation autumn brings with it.
While every September is different, for me it is a perfect month to transition workouts from summer to fall. The sun is still out late enough that you can enjoy evening activities, but the temperatures are starting to cool down enough to make your workouts more enjoyable.
The past couple of years I’ve spent my transition from summer to fall training for the fall road races I’ve signed up for, like the Army Ten Miler or Hot Chocolate 15K, but this year my goal is to enjoy walking!
Theodore would completely agree, but walking is often underrated. I’ll be the first to admit that when I think about doing a workout, going for a walk isn’t usually the first thing on my mind. I think about breaking an intense sweat in a spin class or during a run, but what I’ve realized during this pregnancy is that walking is good not only for the body but it’s good for the soul!
Unlike running, I find that walking enables me to meet my body where it is at. For someone who’s new to working out, just returning to workouts, or recovering from anything medical related, walking is a great way to increase your endurance slowly. You can focus on distance or speed, or both!
As I transition my workouts from summer to fall this year, my ultimate goal is to make the most of my walks, to clear my head, and to appreciate my time outside! I can’t wait to get back into some of my old workout clothes and enjoy these crisp autumn walks!
What are your favorite workouts to transition from summer to fall?
