Cardio and Workout ADD

Good Morning and Happy Glorious Saturday!

Gus and I just got back from a nice long walk.  The weather was PERFECT for a light jacket and closed toed shoes.  Beautiful, sunny with a nice breeze.  Sometimes I love Spring.

This long walk was the end of my random work out ADD this morning.

Workout of the Day

I slept in until the unheard of hour of 9 AM this morning.  I have no clue what got into me, but I am OK with it.  Extra sleep = extra happy Ashley.

I drank down a quick glass of Nuun and ate a few chunks of granola before heading down to the gym — for some kind of work out (I really had no idea what to do because we had PLANNED to go skiing but last minute Zach changed his mind).

I started the work out with an easy mile on the treadmill watching She’s All That.  My legs said PLEASE NO after yesterday’s hard work — so I called it quits at one and moved over to the weights.

I did a hodgepodge of:

  • incline sit ups
  • bridges
  • push ups
  • bicep curls (20 lbs)
  • overhead triceps (12 lbs)
  • leg press (50 lbs)
  • weighted punches (3 lbs)
  • plank rotations

And then moved onto the bike where I listened to an NPR podcast for 15 minutes and zoned out

I can definitely tell my legs are getting stronger on the bike — which is awesome.

I then moved BACK to the weights for another 10-15 minutes.

Then did a minute hard run, and hit the stairs

Not the stair stepper, but the stairs in my building (thankfully nobody came down in the 10-12 minutes I was in there).  I did our 4.5 stories 10 times and then headed home, where I did another plank and then walked the pup.

Weird, right?  It was one of those mornings I really wish I still had my heart rate monitor because I’d be very curious how high my heart rate got/how steady it stayed.

I will likely do some random strength moves because the BLUES are playing the hometown Av’s so we actually get to watch it on TV.  I normally get bored during commercial and intermission so I’ll probably continue with the work out ADD.

Anybody else every have work outs like this?  Any recommendations for other things I can do when I’m feeling ADD?

  1. lol, that was the most random workout ever. I can get like that sometimes, but I usually end up doing a bunch of random short workout videos.

  2. This happens to me ALL the time and it is so frustrating. For whatever reason, when I have a plan or at least some sort of structure, I feel like I get a better workout in. But I feel like that’s just a mental barrier to cross 🙂 I just know I give up much sooner when the workout ADD is kicked into full gear.
