Happy Fitness Friday! Not sure what it’s about check out the original post HERE! I am so excited to once again be hosting a link-up for Fitness Friday, a chance to share a fitness related link, whether it’s a recap of your workouts, a vent about something fitness-related, some tips and tricks for the gym, or some goals for a race, feel free to add your link at the bottom!
Admittedly, there were some technical difficulties with last week’s link-up that the lovely Rachel (Betty Livin) emailed me about – thanks Rachel! Turns out the drop-down menu that specified which type of link up I wanted actually didn’t drop down so the link-up wouldn’t display properly. Long story short it is fixed and I can’t wait to read all of your links!
This week of workouts (beginning last Friday) was AWESOME. Mostly because it contained a 19km hike with almost 5000ft of elevation gain on Saturday. Unfortunately that meant my legs were trashed for about three days after the hike. I could barely move on Sunday so I stuck to my schedule and used it as a rest day.
I was still fairly sore on Monday but I made it a point to get my strength training in and managed to kill my weight lifting sessions this week! I absolutely dominated my leg workout yesterday and did more step-ups, lunges, and squats than I can count. I most definitely didn’t stretch my legs as much as I should have this week because my hamstrings and glutes are SORE SORE SORE. I’m sorry legs.
I only ran twice in this week of workouts as I was planning on running on Monday but my legs refused to even consider the idea so I just stuck to a quick warm-up on the elliptical before weights. I think my least favourite strength day is chest and back, I just need a new routine or something for that day!
I am hoping to go out for a longer run or long walk this weekend as I have a whole day off on Saturday and NO plans. I am subbing a spin class on Sunday and then heading to a staff meeting and a massage, so it’s looking like a pretty decent weekend! It’s also suppose to reach DOUBLE DIGITS in temperature on Saturday so that’s exciting! There is a girl from Zimbabwe in one of my classes and she said that she couldn’t believe I was getting excited about how warm ten degrees was. I told her, “Just wait for January!”
Join the fun! Add a fitness-related, any fitness-related link to the link-up below and take a peek at how others are staying active! Have a fit and fabulous weekend and happy Fitness Friday!
