“You look tired”
“you look tired”
That was what one of my clients said to me on Thursday evening.
Some people take offense at this comment but for me, I have never really seen what the big deal is.
Yes, I looked tired because guess what?
I was tired!
A well-earned tired, if I do say so myself.
Thursday was a day full of exercise. As I mentioned in my Thursday morning post, I am subbing the Wake Up Call class twice a week for the next few weeks. It is a high energy, cardio and weight heavy hour that I not only lead, but participate in. I spent 6-7am jumping, squatting, push up-ing, and crunching away. After that class was over, I taught my Cross Training boot camp and completed the last circuit with them which consisted of 3 rounds of 15 burpees and 15 tuck jumps.
That same afternoon, I have several hours to kill before my evening clients so I hopped on the treadmill and completed this 30 minute incline/sprint interval workout:
After this 30 minutes I did a quick super set workout:
15 Back Squats
15 BOSE Squats
15 Push Press
15 Wall Balls
I also spent some time doing Lat Pulldowns and Low Rows to work on my upper back and shoulders. With time still to spare, I did 15 minutes of incline walking before I took a shower.
So yeah, I looked tired on Thursday but I earned that tired!
All that exercising the day before left me sore and stiff so I knew that yesterdays workout needed to be something low-key. Rather than push my way through a tough run or a killer full body circuit, I took it a little easy and did this core workout from The Daily HIIT.
Turns out it was still a rough workout but at least I got to lay on the floor for most of it! 🙂
I had clients this morning starting at 8am so I got to the gym early to get my own workout in. I just wanted to run and had hoped on getting 5 miles done but alas, only had time for 3. It was a difficult 3 miles — breakfast was trying to make it’s way back up the entire time which, as you may know, makes running awfully difficult.
I hoping to run again tomorrow morning — we have managed to have fairly decent weather these last few days so I may even venture outside. We’ll see!
