Yesterday’s Evening Workout
- 2.54 miles treadmill
- 10 minutes stretching
Last night, my dad and stepmom came over so Danny and I could go to the gym.
It was really crowded, as it usually it in the evening, but we were able to find two open treadmills.
I alternated between walking at 4.1 mph and running at 7.1 mph for 30 minutes. After the treadmill, Danny and I decided to see who could hold a plank longer.
Danny held his plank for 1 minute and I held mine for 2 minutes and 4 seconds! I don’t do the plank very often except for at the end of BodyPump sometimes, so I was happy with two minutes. I think I’m going to do a plank every day and work on holding it longer. We finished up with about 10 minutes of stretching.
According to my BodyMedia Fit, I took a little over 18,000 steps yesterday!
Lately, I have been eating Special K and fruit for breakfast, but today I wanted to eat something a little more filling, so I had a bagel thin with two egg whites, cheese, blueberries, and a clementine.
And coffee. There must always be coffee. And gingerbread coffee mugs are perfectly acceptable to use after Christmas…right?
- .6 mile, treadmill
- BodyPump – 60 minutes
I know it’s a little bit ridiculous that sometimes I do such short distances on the treadmill, but I have been really trying to get in 10,000 steps every day, and some days when I do BodyPump, I don’t quite hit 10,000 steps. Even short distances on the treadmill help me get to my goal of 10,000 steps, and it’s a good warm-up for BodyPump. And really that was all I had time to squeeze in before BodyPump.
My right shoulder has been having problems since the summer. It’s fine most of the day, but I notice it’s sore the most during BodyPump and whenever I have to lift anything over my head (which is why I go lighter on the shoulder track). Today, we were doing the plank during BodyPump and my arm kind of gave out under me and I felt this pain in my shoulder. Great. Right when I thought it was getting better, this happens.
It definitely hurts, but it’s not excruciating. I am hoping that some Advil and ice will do the trick, but since it was already sore, I have a feeling that it’s going to be sore for quite a while. Damn.
After the gym, I stopped at Target…for the third time this week. I kept forgetting to look for the new flavors of Chobani, so today I went just to look for them. Success!
I bought three of the new pear Chobani flavors - 140 calories and 14 grams of protein. I also bought the Chobani Bites in Pineapple Caramel – how delicious does that sound?! The Chobani Bites only have 100 calories and 8 grams of protein. I can’t wait to try one with lunch!
Tonight, we’re going to Bingo night at Jaden’s school, and we actually have no other set plans this weekend – very nice for a change!
Questions of the day:
- What was your last injury? How do you deal with injuries?
- Do you like yogurt? Favorite brand? Flavor?
- Any plans or workouts for this weekend?
