We went on a 28 minute run with a 5 minute cool down walk around our neighborhood. A nice neighbor lady said, "You must be brave!" The second time we passed her, Walden tried to leap towards her as Sasha and I ran past and she said, "No wonder why you are so skinny." I told her thank you as we jogged onward. I suppose "skinny" gets to me. I would rather be told I was toned, or in-shape, or healthy because when I think of skinny I think that it means "too small". Anyways, when the puppies were good and tired, we slowed our pace to walk and went on home.
I decided that every other part of my body was sore, especially my legs, so I should work out my chest and triceps. I did the following:
|Chest Press on Exercise Ball||3||15||two 23lb weights|
|Skull Crushers||3||12||one 23lb weight|
|Tricep Pull-down||3||15||blue band|
|Tricep Overhead Pull-down||3||15||blue band|
|Triangle Pushups||3||12||body weight|
I felt pretty good after my workout. I had a great run with my mutts and my upper body felt the burn during the strength workout. I actually ended up doing the last set of Triangle Pushups with my knees on the ground because I was so beat. I think I may workout too fast sometimes. I am not great about taking a rest between my sets when I am working out solo. I do fine when I am working out with Neal because when he's doing the exercise I am taking a break, and vice versa.
Over all I worked out a little over 1 hour, burned 577 calories and I was in my zone for 33 minutes with an average heart rate of 152! Not too shabby.
