Even though I was still very very tired, I forced myself out of bed. It was one of those rare days that I could actually go outside for a bootycall because Ben was home. I would have gone for a run but I decided give my legs a little rest. I went for a nice walk. My legs were still a little tight so I didn’t go at the fast pace that I usually do.
Turbo Fire Day 71 – I kept it low impact for HIIT25 but it was still a tough workout. I was so tired before I even started. I didn’t really get all that much rest from running my race. But I gave it all I had. Sculpt30 was tough too. I was sore from it right after I finished.
Tone It Up’s Bikini Series challenge for the day was the Drop10 Calorie Torcher. I hit the gym but went to the elliptical to save my knees. I usually like to up the resistance for my work interval and not focus on going faster but just keep going. I might not be going fast but my heart is racing on the high resistance. I didn’t have the energy for that so I lowered the resistance a little and “sprinted” for the 1min work interval. Worked up a great sweat :-)
Ended with the plank combo from Emma and Sophie: 25 pushups (on knees) and a 5min plank with tummy tucks and side planks.
