Yesterday was strech and strengthen day. I needed a proper workout after Sunday's long run (8k) which I did not really enjoy as much as I usually do. Today's run at a pace of 07.30 was much better.
But I digress. yesterday I did a Barre workout that I happily came across from (Just) Trying is for Little Girls. Do hop to her blog to see how much that woman actually runs. She makes running 10 miles so easy! I think she has a goal of running a half in every state in the US :) Anyway so if she says some workout video was good, I would definitely have to try it.
And so I did!! I desperately needed a strength training video to at home with just body weight. When I first watched the video, I was like "No way am I going to be able to do this". But then Yesterday morning, I mustered up the courage, dragged a chair into my room, spread out my purple yoga mat and was dripping sweat by the time I finished!!! I was able to do ALL the moves :) though I did not have dumbells for some :) The topping to the cake was that all the tightness I had been feeling in my glutes, hammies and thighs just vanished with this video.
Its a good 40 minute long workout with cool down and so I added this workout too before I was interrupted by a wailing toddler. That was a good one to do though I wanted to do a little more even after 50 mins(unlike the Jillian Micheals videos where I am happy to reach the end). I will be definitely doing this one again. Will you try this? Leave me a line!
