anddd then i was super lazy on monday and didn't workout. very productive.
|please note the enlarged view of my stomach.|
it is not a preggo-belly.
on tuesday however, i hopped right out of bed at the sound of my alarm and ran 40 minutes/lifted 20 minutes (legs and abs) before work.
knowing there was more rain in the forecast, i needed to rise early again wednesday or else i'd make excuses. i pulled it off and shuffled slowly for 5 miles, but i did beat the rain. my legs were (/are) so freakin' sore from tuesday. all day at work i walked around like i had a stick up my rear and had to use the handicap stall so i could raise/lower myself with the handrail when i drank too much water.
(i was going to draw a person with a stick up it's rear, but it was looking too much like a dangling turd.)
back to the leg workout...
i did the "leg sculptor" program from the nike training club (ntc) app. umm, they sure better be taut and toned because it hurts to sit.
the workout was 3 sets of this circuit for 15-minutes total:
side lunge - 1min (i did 30secs each leg)
squats - 1min
squat jumps - 30secs
ski jumps - 30secs
around the world lunge - 1min (again, 30secs each leg)
split jumps - 30secs
rest - 30secs
no weights required, but i'm sure you could add them if you were feeling adventurous.
nike training club is a pretty decent app - there's little-to-no equipment required and the workouts range from 15-45 minutes. plus, it's free! [i'm just sharing the info, i'm not being compensated for talking about ntc]
