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
- 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?
