Hiya peeps! I’m sitting here with my sister, Lynda enjoying some girl time. Today was one of those days that makes you deserve 2-3 glasses of wine. Work was non-stop and stressful and I did not get the opportunity to workout …… so there goes my stress relief. Instead, I got to vent to my sister and boyfriend about my day. We ended up talking about financial stresses and the economy, which really isn’t that much better of a topic. I will say though, that nothing beats good company….. its the best cure in the world.
So even though, I didn’t chance to work out today…. I am here sipping my wine, hanging with my sis thinking about yesterday’s workout. So here is the latest:
Yesterday I headed to Fitness 19 with my friend Billie. We focused on cardio, abs and legs. Please note, the reason I titled todays post “men yoga, women and weights, is because my boyfriend and all his guys friends decided to go to Bikram Yoga, all the while my girl Billie and I decided to go lift weights…. what’s wrong with this picture??? HAHAHAHA
Anyways, back to the workout: For cardio I did a 2 mile run. I have to add that this day was difficult!!! I found myself crossing the 2 mile mark after 24 minutes, which is 2 minutes slower than usual. My highest speed was 7.0 and my highest incline reached was 9.0… so I am not going to beat myself up too bad about it especially when I went up a notch or two!
As far as abs went, I worked on abdominal intervals. This means that between every set of crunches, I did a 45 second plank… it ended up looking something like this:
58 vertical crunches (pic below), 45 second plank, 24 regular situps, 45 second plank, 40 vertical crunches, 45 second plank, 26 situps.
After situps, must come the stretches! I caught little Billie in mid stretch:
Today we focused on legs. Again, 3 different machines with 3 sets of 10 reps each. We worked on squats, leg press and calves:
Sorry for being so short today, my sis is here with me and I had no time to write…. today will I let the pictures speak for themselves!!!
