Running With Brick Legs

My afternoon run was a complete success. I started off walking for a tenth of a mile and then picked up my pace to a jog, or a “rog,” as I did this morning, and worked my way up to my normal pace. I went for 2 straight miles, feeling light and in the zone, before I finished up my workout in the women’s gym, where I focused on my core.  After working my core, I noticed I had an 5 extra minutes before I had to head to the showers, so I jumped on the Nordic machine (which I have never used before) and had the time of my life.

Lunch Time Workout

  • .10 mile warm up
  • 2 mile run
  • 50 medicine ball sit ups with 5 lb medicine ball
  • 10 side medicine ball sit ups with 5 lb medicine ball
  • 5 minutes, Nordic machine

The walk back to work was painful! My legs felt like bricks ago, and I was horrified that I had to climb 70 stairs to get to my office. For once I’m looking forward to sitting down.

I’m supposed to have a tennis date with my best friend from high school, Jenny, at 6:30, but it’s looking pretty dark out there! I heard we might get thunderstorms, which I kind of want for two reasons. 1, my body is so sore, and 2, I love evening storms during the summer. Nothing beats sitting on your porch watching the sky light up around you. Beautiful and breath-taking.

Check out my yummy afternoon snack. A Fiber One  Chocolate Chip Cookie. For those on Weight Watchers, it’s only 2 points, and it fills you up and satisfies your sweet tooth at the same time. Win!

Alright, back to finish up the work day before tennis with my girl, Jenny!
