This week began my 7th week of weight training 2 times per week and my 5th week of Yoga 2 times per week. I count it a goal to have stuck with this added routine making it part of my training weekly. So often times I would adjust my weekly workouts only to revert back to old habits getting very little results because of this. I already can see new definition in my legs and my flexibility is getting better as well. Poses I would not have attempted in the beginning of Yoga seem to be more doable with each class. Even my balance has improved. Form is everything!
On Sunday, as I was planning my week out in my mind, I thought that this week would be a good time to bring a fresh weight routine in to replace the one that I have been doing these past 6 weeks. This will provide a new challenge for those muscles that have grown accustom to my routine.
Following a 5 mile speed session I began this new weight program and I will be the first to admit that I was in total fatigue mode by the time the sessions were completed. I was even sweating!! Yoga would also challenge me further due to my muscles being wiped out. When class was over I headed home for a yummy salad loaded with protein (THANKS Scott) and then straight to a hot bath.
I put everything I had into my workout last night and can say that nothing was left in the tank. I felt strong, tired, and thankful to bring it to a new level.
Today I will run 3 miles and then take a 60 minute cycle class. Tomorrow will be a repeat of Monday’s workout madness all over again. Fun..fun…fun….
