I'm totally lacking pictures for this post, so you get a random one of boyfriend, since he's at work and I miss him.
Yesterday, I hit the 'mill because of potential rain (us Californians need rain in a BAD way). My legs were heavy and I was tired for the majority of my first run, so I called it quits at 4.5 miles.
I went and lifted for about 45 minutes. There is just something so great about picking up heavy things. Running is my therapy, lifting is my anger management.
I decided to get back on the 'mill to round up my workout. By the end of my lifting session, I wanted to run 2 more miles to make it an even 6. Well, my legs felt much better so, I kept going for another half mile. Apparently, I'm terrible at math and realized that 4.5 + 2.5 = 7.
Don't worry, I'm much better at teaching math than doing it in my head after a heavy workout session.
Today was much of the same. It was leg day at the gym, a day that is always dreaded, but much loved. I have noticed such an improvement in my backside since consistently training my legs. I've also noticed much better runs more frequently. I'm a firm believer in squats. (firm.. Ha... See what I did there?)
It's already Wednesday tomorrow! I am heading to the city this weekend for the night for a very special reason. I'm pretty excited and nervous.
What is your favorite exercise besides running?
