Well there was lots of sitting, completing some online training for work and not getting out of my PJ’s until it was time to go to the gym. Yep I showered to go to the gym. Doesn’t everyone do that?! Well really I showered because after my workout today, it was free chair massage day and I thought it would be good to smell clean and sweaty. Not sure if that really makes since but it’s how I spent my day.
So today was cross training day and to change things up a little I tried this workout that I found on Pinterest (which is an awesome place to get all kinds of things especially workouts). Here is the newest one I found and tried:
I was thinking, “oh I’m in pretty good shape I’ll do this with 10lbs weights”. Well guess what, one exercise in I was headed back to the weight rack and picking up the recommended 5 lbs weights. Holy crap some of these exercises where insane. They really do bring up that heart rate especially the reverse lunge and press. I was only able to 2 sets of 15 but I am sure I will feel it tomorrow.
I started out with a 8.5 mile ride with random hills on the bike. I’m finding that as cross training it’s very helpful. And best of all I was able to finish it up with a nice 10 min chair massage.
Nothing like a 3 day weekend and now it’s a four day work week. Looking forward to a busy and fast week.
