I love Thursday’s!
I love the Thursday morning paper with my standard cup of joe and Kashi Go Lean cereal and some blog time… it just feels right.
At about 9:30am I went the gym and did a workout courtesy of Blonde Ponytail! First of all, I LOVE her and her new little girl, Jada… but she also produces some of the best and hardest workouts. They are Crossfit inspired, meaning intense and short! But she is also a great runner and understands the “running” side of things as well! Basically she rocks.
Anyways, this morning I followed THIS workout of her’s and it was a true SWEAT-FEST. I finished the workout in child’s pose on the floor… gasping for air. I love when that happens!
**I used a 35# kb for the swings and goblet squats and a 20# dumbell for the overhead lunges.
I HIGHLY recommend doing this, or one of her other workouts, if you are looking for a nice burn!
I finished off my gym time with some hamstring work and some back squats @ 110#
I raced off, nice and sweaty to my grandparents house to say Hello, followed by my weekly appointment with my therapist (which is going great by the way…things are definitely coming out in the open that I need to deal with)
The rest of the day was spent shopping– I can’t make decisions and am very cheap so I didn’t buy a thing. Too bad, I am in desperate need of non-athletic clothes. For real.
I finished up the day with a Naked Run. And by naked run, I mean I had NO ipod, NO watch, and NO sunglasses. I was 100% vulnerable out there for all to see and notice. I felt very exposed… very naked. It was a 7 mile run and my legs were tired from the mornings workout, but it felt great to get my stride going. Two days off of running made me excited to get back out there!
(( I realized today, no matter how often we run a road or route… we are still always a Visitor. No run can be 100% predicted. The road owns the journey it paves through the town, city, woods, etc. We are Always just visitors on it. Respect the road… respect the run! ))
This weekend I will do a weekly workout recap for you guys!
As a heads up… year numero dos of my grad program starts MONDAY!!! I think it is safe to say that I may not be able to post every day like I have been doing for the last few months. So if you don’t hear from me one morning… don’t worry! I will most likely be back the following day with something extremely profound and groundbreaking– I am a masters student after all…. HA ya right.
Have a great Friday people! Live well!
Favorite FAST but HARD workout to do at home or in the gym?
