I’m so glad I made myself hit the gym. The plan was to run 2 miles and take Definitions class (weight conditioning). I foam rolled before running a nice and easy 2 miles on an easy 1% incline, in 18:30 min. I moved on to Definitions – and was pleasantly surprised to see that Tonya Dugger was subbing for our usual instructor. Tonya rules. I love her classes, but they never seem to work with my schedule. It was just what I needed on a night I wasn’t pumped to work out. After class I did some ab work (old school sit ups and planks), 30 push ups (10 full, 20 on my knees – I’m already sore) and leg lifts for hip strength (from last summer’s PT routine). I finished up the workout with a little more foam rolling. I love workouts that turn out awesome, when I was debating skipping the gym. Such a great way to end a Monday!
Not bad, eh?
Also, and I know this is bad and might make me sound a lil crazy, but I think having a little tan makes everything better… including workouts. I just feel better when I have a tan (and nice, bright blond highlights to match!). I stopped regularly tanning years ago, but I got some color over the weekend and man… I swear my gym clothes looked better tonight! I’m also going against my “no tanning bed” policy for this next wedding (first week of May) in Florida. Although the bridesmaid dress I am wearing is absolutely beautiful and looks amazing on, it unfortunately does not go with my bright white Midwestern skin. I don’t plan on tanning the way I used to (which was like every day), but just go enough in the next few weeks that I’m not so pale that I’m neon white!!!
After arriving home, I finally checked my mail and laughed when I saw the postcard that Matthew Cat received from Italy!
Italian Cat sends his love!
Matthew Cat is an international sensation! Thanks, Katie , for thinking of MCH while you were abroad!
Have a good night, friends! Tomorrow is Tutoring Tuesday – I can’t want to see my little 3rd grader!
