I was a little nervous for my lunch time workout, as my right leg has been bothering me all day. My hamstring and calf muscle both seemed tight, and it felt very awkward to walk. I was thinking I possible did something to it this morning, it’s been overused, or I didn’t stretch it enough this weekend.
Somehow I feel like sometimes my stretching goes out the door when I’m busy and rushing around. I tend to place my cardio and strength training as a higher priority than stretching when crammed for time, and I need to work on this better. Even though it’s an area I need to work on, I have become a much better stretcher than I used to be. It’s one of my favorite and most relaxing things to do. I could stay in child’s pose for hours and be content.
I surprised myself during my workout and found that once I put my body into motion, it was fine.
Lunch Time Workout
- 1.5 mile run
- 2 sets of 25 medicine ball sit-ups
- 20 medicine ball side sit-ups
- 12 minutes Nordic Machines.. I was only going to do 10 but at 9:40 an energetic song came on.. could NOT stop!
For lunch I had a turkey, spinach, alfalfa sprouts and mustard sandwich with a banana. My workout really brought about my hunger!
Apparently I wasn’t satisfied enough because I was still ravenous! I knew I had the perfect mid-afternoon snack. An apple and a packet of Justin’s Almond Butter. Delicious! I didn’t use all of the almond butter up, was trying to be good, but I was still hungry and it was staring me down so I spooned out the rest. Every. Last.Speck.
