I am a happy camper when I finish a week with a single Rest Day. While I believe in their importance, I heart exercising!
This week felt running/cardio heavy, relatively speaking (it wasn’t a 40 mile week), so I was overjoyed to end it with a heavy and sweaty WREC workout with P on Sunday.
The workout encompassed too many moves to remember, frankly, but I did my best to recall what went down. Each time I get to play at the WREC, I go nuts like a kid in a candy shop. Needless to say, walking will be rough tomorrow.
Workouts | Week of September 15
Tuesday – 30 min. run + (3x) 30 step-ups / 30 lunges / 30 jump squats
really wasn’t feeling a workout at the end of the day after two consecutive 4:45am wake-up calls
