Sun Goddess vs Troll

Saturday, May 19, 2012

I had planned to workout for a good hour this morning.

I did today's Supreme90 workout (one week until round 2 is done!!!) and then started doing some strength traing, but the lure of the warm ai outside was too much for me.

I decided that even though my goal was some high calorie burn today, I wasn't going to get there by working out in the basement feeling like a troll.

Instead, I decided to be a sun goddess and walk. My trade off was that I would do 6 miles instead of the 4 I normally do.

I ended up doing 6.7 miles, but throughly enjoyed the warm weather and sunshine.

It took longer to burn my calories than an HIIT workout, but had additional positives:
1. Less time for me to eat.
2. Good dose of Vitamin D!!

I hope everyone else is getting a chance to enjoy warm weather too!

    Terrific to get out and soak up those rays! :-)

I spent hours and HOURS out on my bike traveling the roads this weekend...loving it!

    Do you ever walk the trails that are down there and go to the bluff for a hike? They are great!!!

Fresh air kicks basement air's butt!!!!!

    I love being outside, too! We had my youngest son's birthday party today (outside!) than I was able to lay in the sun for a while. I did come in to do yoga in the basement for a lit. By then I was too hot to be outside any longer, lol!
