How did it feel/Thoughts: So I still felt sore from the leg workout the other day and I feel like all my muscles are finally catching up with the soreness.  A good recovery pace isn’t bad to take when listening to my body.

Cross Training: 10 minutes abs

How did it feel/Thoughts: It was significantly warmer and I was twice as sore from my leg and butt exercises the other day.  It was a little miserable.  Every hill I hit I felt like I was going to die.  Ready to start feeling good after these hell weeks of getting back into tip top shape.  Other than that I have a busy day and a job interview!  Hope all goes well and I will have a job at bath and body works!!

 

Lower Back Exercises

Okay, so as a runner, I often forget the importance of strengthening my lower back.  Also, I struggle to know what to do for lower back workouts.  I came across these exercises and I have to say that they are pretty awesome!  I could feel my lower back being put to work and I loved the use of the exercise ball.  Of course I ended up ignoring how many reps they told me to do on the picture and did how many I thought was necessary.  All in all I highly recommend you try these out for yourself!

Arm Day!

 

I completed these exercises today for my arm workout (I also did some other exercises besides this.)  I used 5lb dumbbells and did 2 sets of anywhere between 10-20 depending on the difficulty.  I liked these exercises because they are different from the ones I usually do.  I’m definitely going to have sore arms tomorrow!  Especially since using 5lb dumbbells was difficult!
