It’s amazing what foam rolling and a hot shower can do to worn out muscles! I woke up Thursday morning and my legs felt much better. I could walk without pain. I’m glad that I took it easy yesterday after my long run. I was able to get up and do a bootycall workout :-) I went with Bikini Blast – 20 reps X3sets. I was planning on starting the new 5 Day Slim Down from Tone It Up’s Beach Babe Edition but I realized that with my training for my Big Sur race coming up in a couple weeks, I would need to eat more. I decided to wait until after my Big Sur race to do the slim down :-)
That didn’t stop me from trying out the new recipes though :-) For breakfast I tried the Banana Split recipe. I didn’t have carob chips but I did have Chobani Champions Vanilla Chocolate Chunk so I used that instead. I also added some chia seeds. This was soooo good!! After I dropped Seppe off at school, it was time for some Turbo Fire.
Turbo Fire Day 53 – For Core 20 I really pushed myself. The floor exercises are always hard for me but I really made an effort to keep up with them today. It burned so bad! I know it’ll be worth it though :-) Stretch40 was amazing! It was exactly what my body needed. Even though the beginning moves work up a sweat, by the end of it, I am completely relaxed and all stretched out :-)
Afternoon workout was Tone It Up’s and SelfMagazine’s Drop10 Engine Revver HIIT workout. Since it was cold and rainy out, I headed to the gym. I don’t mind running in the rain, but my knees needed a little break from pounding pavement. The elliptical isn’t too bad when doing a HIIT and it was actually easier for me to do the workout on the elliptical instead of the treadmill. Ended my day with a 5min plank for PlankADay.
M1: Banana Split with Chobani Champions Vanilla Chocolate Chunk and chia seeds.
M3: Chicken Cranberry Walnut salad from Carls Jr. Had to be out of the house during lunch while our carpets were being cleaned. This is what Ben and the boys wanted so I made the best of it. The salad wasn’t too bad.
M4: Luna bar and chocolate Zico.
M5: Salmon Burger on whole wheat sandwich thins with mushrooms, tomatoes, spinach and bean sprouts. Ben made dinner :-) I added the mushrooms and the bean sprouts.
Did not do well with my water today :-( Only 40 oz. and 1 Zico.
