Rest! Sunday I did a short leg workout. The leg press, calf machine, kettle bell swings, and a set of light dead lifts and woooowza was I sore in the area around my upper hamstrings and glutes (kettle bell swings). Each time I tried to sit Monday at work, it was a constant reminder I need to get back in shape, but I had flowers to cheer me up.
I love seeing stars twinkle on my morning run! A 5K is about all I can get in before work. It does keep me from over doing it. Wow, my legs were still really sore from leg day!
After work, I did 2 miles on the elliptical, and hubby and I had a good upper body lifting session :)
Another run in the morning. I could still feel a twinge of soreness/pain when I was running up hill, but overall it was a decent run. My legs felt fatigued, but not as sore. Leg day effects lingered way too long lol

After dinner we took a bike ride around the neighborhood. Sunny and 63 degrees...just soaking it in.

I did set my alarm but snooooze - snooze - snoooze . I decided to take a rest day. My legs are not ready for too many back to back days yet.
Thursday night I met a moonshiner, not tromping through the woods, but in a local ABC (liquor) store.

Rest did good things for me. I woke up feeling refreshed. It was so humid (82 %), but I felt ready to push myself a bit. I took a hilly route. I was panting when I finished - it was awesome.
|That's a speedy one for me :)|
I ran a mile and half on the treadmill and we got a decent lifting session in after work, but my wrist was finicky, so I wasn't quite a 100%
Have I mentioned I feel like I am constantly working around some ache or pain :/
I decided to run in the afternoon. Totally weird to be out in the sun. I am having a time trying to keep my runs at easy pace, I just want to push. I really missed running.
My left hamstring really tightened up toward the end of this run, I am icing as I write this. I am not sure why, but pushing the pace a bit makes me feel like someone has a handful of my hamstring and is squeezing.

Just a little treadmill inspiration for you in case you haven't seen this...

If you don't want to see the interview the action starts about 1:40 in :)
I am totally going to rock this routine at the gym soon. (in my head)
Tell me how your week went! Are you eating lots of jelly beans, chocolate, and peeps?
