I have a love/hate relationship with this feeling. I love it, knowing that I am working my body harder than normal, but hate it because it makes that day's workout that much harder....and let's just face it, walking around looking like you have a stick shoved up your ass isn't very attractive! ;P
That is how I have felt for the past 2 days. I guess that Nike Training Camp app really kicked my butt! Hahaha!
It was such a beautiful, cool morning, so I took advantage of the extra time I had (since it IS Tuesday) and went for a short little run in my neighborhood instead of doing the cardio part of the workout on the treadmill. It felt so great to get outside!!!
I must have died for a few minutes between my leg workout and my run, because shortly after starting the run I realized that my heart rate monitor wasn't detecting my pulse.....hmmmm......So, I had to end the "workout" and start a new one!
After my run I came in and did 15 minutes worth of stretching on the Nike Training Camp app. It was Shawn Johnson's stretching routine. I just love her! She is so darn cute! Hehehe!!!! And being a former gymnast, I have tons of respect for that chick! <3
Last night I was sore and decided that it would be a brilliant idea (sorry, been watching too much Top Gear UK....their slang is rubbing off on me!) to utilize my foam roller. I really need to start using that contraption more often.....my muscles will definitely thank me, and I need them to like me! LOL!!!
|Rollin' one out!|
We also have been having some weird weather and thunderstorms are in the forecast for today....
That might explain the slight humidity that was in the air this morning... ;)
We did have a gorgeous sunset though! The sky was all orange and was really crazy looking. I love when nature plays with colors like that!!!! <3 So gorgeous, but totally weird for SoCal in July!!!
In celebration of the orange sky last night (but mostly because my calves are so sore.....) I am sport in' my bright orange compression socks today!
So attractive, I know! ;) Sorry boys, I am a taken woman! I actually got the orange for the Ragnar Race next year! Woo! Can't wait for that!!!!!
Speaking of races, I do have a little surprise coming up! Oh yes!!!! That will be for another day, though! ;D Sorry to leave you hanging! Hehehe!!!
Oh, and those awesome socks......well they are on sale!!! I just love my ProCompression socks! If you enter coupon code SOCKS you will receive half off! So normally $50 a pair, you get them for $25 AND free shipping! Not going to tell you which color I ordered.....it's a surprise....but go ahead and take a guess! Hehehehehe!!!!!!
