Of course just a couple blog posts after bragging about my preparedness, I make a serious misstep in preparation for this morning’s workout. I forgot to set my alarm.
Kevin happened to wake up around 5:20 and woke me up. Since I was already 20 minutes behind schedule, I decided to cut out the drive time to the gym and to work out in the living room.
Today was abs and legs day, which makes for a perfect living room workout, so I did three sets of the following:
- 25 bicycle crunches
- 25 normal crunches
- 25 reverse crunches
- 15 back extensions
- 15 leg circles (each leg)
- 15 lunges with weights (each leg)
- 15 squats
I missed the cardio warm up that I usually get at the gym, but it’s better than nothing.
Leg workouts are always pretty tough for me. I need to build up that strength. I was just happy to get a workout in, despite having to adjust my plans. I definitely remember a time when I would have just tossed the workout out completely, especially after a holiday weekend of eating.
Mondays after long weekends are always a little rough, but we made it. I’ve been watching Mad Men from the beginning, and I’m currently starting Season 2. I know everyone loves this show, but I find it to be a little slow. I watch it more for the dialogue than the plot lines. Still, I’m looking forward to watching some Mad Men tonight and trying out a new recipe.
What workouts are the most difficult for you?
