Creepy Cardio Workout

Hey, welcome to the blog today!  Hope your week is off to a great start.

My mom had offered to come watch the babies last night so the hubs and I could enjoy a little date (thanks, mom)! We headed to Roadhouse cinemas to catch a screening of It.  I love Roadhouse, you reserve seats in advance, so there is not the rush to get there early for the best seats.  They are also full service and have a drink and dinner menu.  A server comes and gets your order prior to the show starting and brings your food and drinks right to you.  There is also a ton of leg room, which the hubs is especially appreciative of, he is pretty tall.

I was a little nervous to go see It.  I actually love horror movies.  Or at least, I love the traditional Nightmare on Elm Street variety.  I really don’t care for the newer ones with realistic violence and I can’t stomach torture movies.  Anyhow, while I like horror movies, I have a bit of a clown phobia, which I am pretty sure is a result of seeing the original It, so I was apprehensive about seeing this remake.  I don’t think my clown phobia will be going away anytime soon, but it was nice to get out and enjoy a date night with the hubs.  We both agreed that the movie is well done and SUPER creepy.

Since I have creepy, Halloween stuff on the brain right now, I wanted to share this creepy cardio workout with you today!  Ok, maybe it isn’t especially creepy, but it is a great little cardio workout in 30 minutes.

I set this up as a running workout so it could be done on a treadmill or outside.  If running is not your jam though you could easily complete it on the elliptical or bike and approach the jogs as a medium effort, the runs as an increased effort and the sprints as an all-out effort.

As always, listen to your body and adapt as needed.  Let me know if you give it a try.

Question: Do you like horror movies?  Seen any good movies on Netflix recently?  We rarely go to the movies, but it is always nice to have some in the queue on Netflix or Hulu.

What is your preferred type of cardio?

    1. I imagine it is very hard to get to have a date night living away from family, hopefully you guys get some sort of date soon. Thanks, I love having the intervals, it gives me mini goals to focus on, which works a lot better for me.

  1. We are in desperate need of a date night! Between work and the beginning of hunting season we hardly ever see each other anymore. Thanks for sharing the workout!

  2. Sadly I personally do not care for horror movies. The creepy music starts I know someone is going to get killed and the hands go up over the eyes. Nice you mom could watch the kids while you and hubby enjoyed an evening out.

  3. We are starting to try to do more date nights! It is so good for marriages but hard because we don’t have any family nearby. I can’t handle scary movies! I’m such a baby! I do want to try your workout though! 🙂

  4. Omg I can’t believe you saw IT. I kind of want to see it now… My fiance and I just watched Gerald’s Game and it was sooo creepy but really good!

    Also I love that workout – def will have to give it a try 🙂

  5. I had to check this out because I wanted to know how you make a workout creepy.
    I also despise clowns, so my hubs couldn’t convince me with anything to see the new It movie. More power to you girlfriend!

  6. I totally have a clown phobia too.
    I don’t handle scary movies at all though. I’m such a wuss!

  7. We rarely ever get a chance to make it to the movie theaters but we were lucky enough to have a baby sitter so we could see IT. My favorite cardio is jogging because it’s the easiest to accomplish with the little ones. Thanks for sharing this cardio workout! 😁
