Day 5 – Just a friday at the gym

image1

Yesterday was a rest day, and although I was only on the bike – I got carried away and watched over an hour of my asian drama. They are only 15-16 minute episodes, and I just kept pressing “play next” sometimes its just hard to stop. I kept my “workout” light by just going at a leisure pace on the bike on minimum resistance. I didn’t work up a sweat, but it was still nice to be a little active in a relaxed atmosphere.

Today I am back on the challenge and I was supposed to do the bike again… however I didn’t look at my sheet and went for a run/walk. I mostly walked today as my sciatic is bothering me a lot and I just didn’t feel like irritating it further.

The rest of my workout included:

  1. Biceps 10×3
  2. Shoulder press  10×3
  3. Triceps  10×3
  4. 15 leg raises
  5. 15 crunches
  6. 15 push-ups
  7. 20 twists
  8. 30 seconds plank
  9. Bosu ball exercises ( about 10 mins of various things)

I skipped out of stretching today… which really was a mistake – I am thinking of getting a foam roller… I think that might help me alleviate some of my leg and sciatic pain. Today its the worst its been in a long time – it feels like it’s cramping into my toes.

One really great things about today that I should mention. Back in May for mother’s day my gym gave me a 2 week plus membership to use whenever iI wanted. I activated it today… so I got to use the fancy change rooms…. I have to bring my swim suit next time to take advantage of the hot tub…. However, I may have noticed that most people do it in the buff…. Is this typical? Maybe I should just forget about the swim suit and join in like everyone else… I honestly am not sure what is normal. What do you think? swim suit or no swim suit? I.m just not sure….

  1. No swimsuit in the hot tub? No. NO! That just sounds like an infection waiting to happen. *barf* Unless someone there is planning to liquor you up first – or at least buy you dinner (I mean, a girl’s gotta eat, right?), I would definitely suit up OR just wait until you can use it alone. PS. *barf*
