Workout Wednesday - June 5, 2013


Hello lovelies!  It's time for Workout Wednesday with Skinny Meg!  I love this linkup because I love getting new ideas for workouts - I like to keep things interesting and changing all the time.

This week has been great because I finished my FIRST 5K! and it was amazing!  I was so excited that I could do it and I am even more excited to do my next one.  Since I ran in the GAWD awful heat this weekend, I decided to walk on Monday instead of my usual run...I was still a little bit sore from Saturday but it was nice to get out and keep moving...we walked about 4.5 miles and included all of the hills in our neighborhood, which are A LOT.

Last night I lifted and today, I'm SO sore - does anyone else LOVE that feeling??  I went to bed with my muscles burning and even though it was uncomfortable, I loved it.  I only had time for a quick session last night so I ended up doing the Quick 20 at my gym but apparently it was worth it because I really am finding it quite hard to wave at people today.

I'm VERY much looking forward to tonight's workout because are going to this really great "workout park" near here.  Apparently, they have trails to run and then these stations to do cross training - I'll definitely take pics because I'm not sure I'm explaining it very well.

I hope everyone is having a great week and I can't wait to see which workouts you are doing!  BTW, you have to check out Skinny Meg's post from yesterday titled "I Weighed Myself", what an amazing inspiration and another reason NOT to focus so much on the number on that damn scale!

  1. LOVE feeling sore after a good workout! Admittedly, I haven't felt that in a while... Cheers to you for working hard!


  2. You have what I call T-Rex arms! T-Rex hates push-ups! I have started squats/planks/pushups/crunches this week and I am SORE. Mostly my arms, though. Love feeling sore because you feel like you have really done something. I've been meaning to ask you if you're on Facebook. Shoot me an email if you are. Can't wait to check out Skinny Meg.
