This is my favorite position after getting home from a tough workout.
Ice, my first course of breakfast while thinking about what I am going to have for my second and third course (which obviously requires me to close my eyes).
You are witnessing a major event in my life. I am wearing matching socks for the first time that I can remember. How many days do you think it is going to take me to lose one of them because the dryer ate it up.
I put on a sweatshirt when I came home so that my back sweat would not be left on the leather lazy-boy.
Today’s workout was a 60 minute pump class followed by 30 minutes on the elliptical. One thing I am super grateful for is that during these shin splints I can still do the elliptical with no pain…..the femur crackage did not allow me to do the elliptical for 3 months. Even though it isn’t the same high I get from running (for me) it does help me to feel ACTIVE and like I am keeping up my cardiovascular endurance.
Even though I walked for a trillion hours around Disneyland yesterday, I am still calling it a rest day (from the gym at least). Today at the gym I remembered how much our bodies love rest days because the next day we are READY to go and get a great workout in.
How often do you take a rest day? I have read in different books that 1 every 7-14 days is best….what do you think?
How often do you ice?
-Icing these shins 2-3 times a day. Not only do I look like a really cool person walking around Trader Joe’s with ice sleeves but they also make my legs feel so good.
WHAT WAS YOUR WORKOUT!?!?!
