Ab's N Arms (8/10/09)
Monday, August 10, 2009
So the other girls in my cast and I have started doing an ab and arm workout everyday, we had big plans to run a mile to the park, do our abs there and run home. Very lofty goals.
The plan is a "had" because 2 mornings ago Katie and I tried it, and nearly killed ourselves, lol. In our defense, we did a brisk walk for about 2 miles, and then my new shoes were giving me blisters, so we walked back home (well I had to do sort of a joggy walky thing because it was less painful on my heels) where I changed my shoes, and then we started back on our brisk walk, which very quickly turned into a brisk jog, then a brisk stride, and then a full out sprint!
The thing is, Katie and I are both competitive, and we had never worked out together, so neither of us realized how tired the other one was and didn't want to be the sissy.
We got to the park, where there is this amazing outdoor stage, and we did crunches and planks, and high knees and whatever else we could think of, and then we walk/jogged home.
Now, Katie went out that day, I was spent, I think I left my apartment once for 30 minutes to buy an ethernet cable. And the next morning, we were both DYING, sore and totally exhausted.
I don't know what we were thinking pushing so hard.
Totally jet lagged, in 90 degree weather, practically 100% humidity (thats probably a huge exaggeration, but thats what it felt like okay). Our bodies were mad at us.
But hey...at least we worked out.
