We’re Launching Poppy Sports Workouts!

Sometimes everyone needs a little extra motivation for training and workouts.  Yes, you might have a plan, but even sometimes those can leave a person searching for more inspiration, or looking for ideas to vary the routine.

With this in mind, we are pleased to announce Poppy Sports Workouts.  For our loyal subscriber list we’ll be sending in our weekly missive a recommended workout – and when appropriate these will be specifically tailored for the outfit we are celebrating in the email.

We’ll feature running, cycling, yoga poses helpful for athletes and a swim workout here and there.

If you want to join our workout list – sign up for our email list today!

This week’s sample workout is a Tempo Run Workout recommended with a Skirt Sports trio of an outfit.

A Tempo Workout for a Stylin’ Out

A Tempo Run is one where you start easy at a jogging warm-up pace (60 to 70 percent of your maximum heart rate), then after a mile or two, begin to gradually accelerate to just slower than your 10-K pace (between 80 and 90 percent of your maximum heart rate).
After holding that fast pace for 3 to 5 minutes, gradually decelerate and finish the run at the same jogging pace at which you started.
