Fitness Friday: Thanksgiving Long Weekend.

Already Friday! YAY! Yesterday I partook in my first run on my lunch break. I get super duper sweaty when I run so the thought of going back to work for half a day after running, without a shower, was unfathomable. Luckily it is freezing cold here in Alberta now so I knew I was going to sweat a little less. I headed out yesterday at lunch for a quick run and it was actually really nice. It got my blood pumping, I felt productive and active on my lunch break, and it wasn’t a disaster going back to work after! I brought dry shampoo and cleansing wipes and besides a little drying sweat in my hair, it was perfect! I can’t say this will continue because we’re suppose to get at least 10cm of snow today but it is nice to know it’s an option if I’m short on time like I was yesterday!

That Monday strength workout left me sore for three days. I guess I just hadn’t done such an intense leg workout in a while, but 60 minutes of squats, lunges, glute bridges, and all the burning torturous leg exercises that I love left me S-O-R-E.
