I went jogging yesterday and it did not go so well. First, I should not have waited until 11am. I live in Alabama and the heat and humidity will cause severe damage to your body. I simply got out of my car and began to sweat. I should have known to get back in my car and jog indoors. The problem is I absolutely hate to jog indoors. I like the scenery of jogging/walking outside. So, I pressed on. I had dreams of doing 3 miles (mixture of walking and jogging). This did not happen. Close to half a mile in I was drenched in sweat. My breathing wasn't normal anymore and I knew this was a BAD idea. I also forgot to stretch, so my legs were not cooperating. To sum things up I walked/jogged 1.5 miles in 20 minutes in 97 degrees and insane humidity!
I am happy I did something, but next time I will know to take it inside. I'm really trying to do much better the next 4 weeks. If I'm counting correctly, that's how long I have until another big weigh in and measurement session. I'll also run my first 5k around that time too. I'll be heading to see Sam in a couple of hours. I'm feeling pretty good, so I hope it's a good day. I hope I do not see my nemesis...the dreaded BOSU ball lol!
Today's song is an oldie, but goodie...and one of the craziest music videos I've ever seen lol!
Deee Lite - Groove is in the Heart
I have now come back from my training sessions and I did have to meet the dreaded BOSU ball lol! I also met my nemesis, Mountain Climbers, today too. Today's workout:
-20 modified pushups and about 15 walking lunges (3 rounds)
-jog for 1:30, burpees on the BOSU ball for 1:15, mountain climbers for 1:00, and squats with medicine ball overhead toss for 0:45 (4 rounds)
-step ups for 1 minute and bicep curls for 1 minute (3 rounds)
-tricep extensions (12, 10, 8)
-chest fly (12, 10, 8)
-plank on bench (held for 1 minute, 3 rounds)
Today, Sam also told me that he can tell I'm starting to drop the weight. This made my day, because I know Sam does not throw out idle compliments! So, now I'm feeling super motivated.
