This is really just a lame attempt at trying to get myself psyched up for another dreaded Monday….
I am happy to report that after the hubby and I decided to rejoin the gym world, my first workout was a really good one. Since the hubby is still making inhuman noises in his sleep thanks to his cold, he begged off for a few more days, so I flew solo for a leg workout. I’m at T-minus 59 days until I can run again, and plan on making sure I don’t have a repeat performance of the dreaded ITBS like back at the Donald Half in January.
Run away ITBS, run away!
I have to admit it felt SO good beat up the gams again! Following a 20-minute interval warm-up on the ARC machine, I proceeded to squat, extend, raise, abduct, and adduct my way into lactic acid heaven.
Needless to say, I’m walking a little funny today, but it was oh-so worth it.
As a proud member of Team #RunDisney, part of this month’s Photo-A-Day-Challenge, was to submit your goals. This is what I came up with:
I think after sweating up a storm by adding in bodyweight exercises in between each set of machines, I hit at least part of #1 and #2 with no trouble whatsoever. I even did pretty well with the cleaner eating. (Right up until the scoop of vanilla ice cream with Thin Mints added to look like Mickey Mouse just before hitting the hay…heavy sigh…)
After the how-much-more-can-the-legs-actually-do-beatdown, I was ready to chow down on some kale salad and hit the couch at my favorite bar – conveniently located on my back patio -with this girl.
Six bottles of Propel, what felt like three pounds of shrimp and pasta salad, and eight episodes of Game of Thrones later, the Wonder Mutt and I were ready to call it a day. Curse you On Demand TV!
Enjoy the ride.
What goals have you set for yourself this month?
