My gym is all better! I was so happy to walk in this morning and see everything back the way it should be. The area where the pipe burst has all been remodeled. My free area seemed ten times bigger than it used to and I couldn’t wait to use it.
I’ve been waiting for a chance to throw a Step Brothers picture up on the blog! Nailed it.
For my workout today I did 35 minutes on the adaptive motion trainer, then broke out the Nike Training Club app for a 15 minute ab workout. Completed in my beloved free area of course. I changed the modified side planks to normal ones, but kept to the rest of the routine.
I finished up my workout with some stretching. I spent a bit more time at the gym than I meant to this morning, but stretching at the end of a workout isn’t really optional for me. Maybe it’s the former ballerina in me, but I was conditioned to know that stretching is crucial. It also helps me calm down and get myself mentally ready to start the day.
If you have trouble making yourself stretch at the end of your workouts, I recommend finding a great 5-minute song that calms you and put it on. Tell yourself you just need to stretch for one song and then you’re done. Right now, I’m loving Patience Lies by Kalai. It’s such a soothing song!
For breakfast today, I made 2 eggs with spinach, mushrooms, and a smidge of mozzarella cheese with a slice of Ezekiel toast.
Since I’ve dilly-dallyed all morning I now have 30 minutes to shower and put together lunch and snacks for the day. I better run, so have a great day!
How long do you stretch at the end of a workout?
Any favorite routines from Nike Training Club? They added so many new ones I don’t know where to start!
