WOD - September 25, 2013

Hi all!  So I managed to squeeze in a quick Bender workout this afternoon while the little guy was napping.  My problem is I'm so busy doing stuff around the house (and maybe catching up on a little of whatever "Real Housewives" taped the night before!) that by the time I start my workout the little guy's been napping for well over an hour.  And he usually only naps for around 2 hours so my time is limited.  And once I hear him whine/cry it totally sends my workout mojo flying out the door!  I must start my workouts earlier!

So I went back in the archives to a workout that I thought was new to me (but once I started I realized I had done it once before which was fine!) - it was only 10 minutes so I was sold!  I did the Speedy 10 Minute Body Toning Workout.  

Melissa used heavier weights than I had at home so where she did only 10 or 15 reps of each exercise I up'd mine to 20 reps.  I think I should invest in like a 12 lb set. (I have a pair of 4's, a pair of 7's and a single 15 lb weight)  Anyway, I still felt the burn and I'm glad I decided to double the reps.

The last exercise in the workout was side plank reaches and I used the 15 lb dumbbell for this one.  My shoulders and abs were really feeling it! 

I was exhausted after dinnertime tonight (how many times do I have to tell my 4 year old to take a bite of food?!?) but I figured blowing off some steam would do me some good.  So off to the gym I went for a quick (quick meaning short, not fast lol) 2 miles in 20 minutes!  I got a cramp in my left hamstring a few minutes in...it ached the whole time but didn't stop me from running and finishing.  I stretched it pretty good after so hopefully it doesn't bother me tomorrow.  My glutes were sore from yesterday's workout (thanks Melissa!) so I'm sure that has something to do with it.

Anyway, I'm off to check in on my blog friends ;).  And then one of my favorite shows is premiering tonight: Law & Order: SVU!  This shows makes me so nervous...and I love it!!!!

I'll be back tomorrow with more!
