First off: apologies for probably only one post a day for now, as my computer completely died last night and I’m forced to reformat. Whomp.
Secondly, I just got my 30-day trial for a gym nearby my house! For someone who travels a lot and is rarely in one place for more than 30-days, these things are a blessing. It’s $9 for a 30-day trial at this little gym, which is an awesome deal. It’s a 24-hour spot, and while I don’t usually gym at odd hours, at least it’s open all of the time! The only downside is that, for group fitness class lovers like me, they don’t provide that sort of service. It’s pretty much a “do your own thing” kind of gym. For 30-days, I can deal.
An update from the running yesterday: my TFL and hip tendons are certainly tight, but not painfully so. Check. My quads are also really sore from the sprinting portions. Double check. I made sure to slather some bengay (like icy hot) on my upper legs before I went to sleep last night as a preventative measure, and popped an Aleve, so I think that helped with the recovery. Nice job, legs! Keep it up!
Here’s the ab plan for when I gym-it-up with my 30-day trial later today:
I like to do this whole sequence twice; three times if my body is feeling up to it.
I think I’ll do a moderate elliptical session too to loosen up these legs!
Happy exercising – TGIF!
