Last night I visited my gym for the first time in an embarrassingly long time. Since I’d run 4 out of the previous 5 days I decided to take a step away from my go-to gym workout, the treadmill, and do some cross training.
I hit up the recumbent bike first. 20 minutes on random hills at difficulty 13. It felt a little bit like this:
I managed to bike a 10K in that 20 minutes so I was pretty happy with myself. I have no idea if 18.3 mph is fast but it was HARD and my legs felt it as soon as I was done.
Then I hopped onto this monster for 15 minutes and continued the burn:
At the gym I have a bad habit of paying attention to what the person next to me is doing. I noticed the lady next to me had been on the stairs for 30 minutes already and I thought it would be fun to see how long it would take me to get to the same point. Just about 14 minutes later, I climbed a mile of stairs and felt pretty darn good about myself even though my butt was super tired and ready to go home.
I had every intention of doing some weights after this but when I went to do some stretching I got so comfy and sleepy on the mat that I decided getting a burrito would be a better use of the next 15 minutes of my life. It was.
I have a pretty light workout schedule coming up over the weekend. I want to do some yoga tomorrow and take a short run on Sunday. Monday probably be a rest day. I hope everyone has a great Memorial Day weekend!
