With a trip to Tahoe coming up in just a few days, I am trying to hit all my fitness goals before I go. I am not sure if that is the 'best' thing to do, but I am doing it anyway. What's the motto? "Don't feel it? Do it anyway".
So that means an hour of cardio and 30 mins of strength training three days in a row. That's a lot for me! I did it yesterday and felt like a champ. Today I was a bit more tired. My dreaded knee pain came back in the last 30 minutes reminding me of ballet days gone by. *sigh* I miss ballet. I miss the structure, the grace. I miss being admired for my over extension in my knees. And that same over extension has caused a chronic pain, whether I work out or not. Oh well. Part of the reason I am doing this is so my knees feel better. Temporary knee pain is part of it.
So today I did 30 minutes on the precore and 30 minutes on the elliptical. I then did the ab crunch machine, the hip adduction, a tricep pulldown, leg press, and back extensions.
I feel exhausted physically, but good now, mentally. I think the amount I don't want to workout before hand is equal to the happy feeling I have after for getting it done. :)
To many more 'happy feelings' afterwards for many many days to come!
