Squats, Planks & a Fartlek
Due to severe weather in Fort Lauderdale and Miami yesterday morning I worked from home. I actually attempted to go into the office twice but both times I was met with total gridlock on 95S and had to give up so I wouldn’t waste too much time sitting in my car.
Working from home meant at 6pm I was FREE! No commute!
Since Adam goes to MMA class on Tuesdays and doesn’t get home until after 9pm, I pretty much had the whole evening ahead of me … so I did what any run blogger would do: squats (3 x 10 @ 50lbs), planks (3 x 45 secs) and a fartlek (random sprints).
(I also did some other lower body lifts, but the squats were the main focus).
Since I took A1A so easy I haven’t had any issues with soreness which is nice. Both of my hips were super tight on Sunday but they’ve already loosened up 90%. My hamstrings also felt a little bit tight on Sunday but with some extra stretching they’re back to normal now too.
Okay, so you see that hard gym floor in that pic up there ^? Well, all of the mats were taken at the gym yesterday so I had to plank on the micro-thin carpet and I ended up with rug burn on my right elbow – OUCH! Rug burn is some serious pain!!! It can easily rival the pain of a paper cut!
Thank goodness I had a good playlist to use as a distraction for the rest of the workout :).
Nothing like some POP to get you going!
What’s on your workout playlist right now?
