|I even put my hair in the "hard at work" bun!|
Now back to business. I took a break from working out today because I was surprisingly sore from yesterday. On Saturday, the day kinda got away from me, and I didn't feel like going for a run or doing anything too time consuming. Since I'm already missing my usual elliptical sessions at USC, I decided to try something new. I got out my yoga mat and laptop with a workout playlist, and went to workout outside.
I did each exercise for one minute, and went through the set 3 times.
Pushups (I cheated on these, and only did a few)
I expected this workout to be really easy, but it was not. Mountain climbers are terrible, and following them with squats was not my brightest idea. I was planning on taking my dog for a walk after, but I realized if I wanted to make my friend's graduation party I had to shower and get ready quickly.
And I've decided how I'm going to keep motivated and focus my work outs! I really want to do the Irvine Lake Mud Run! I've never ran a race before, and I've always thought mud runs have looked so fun. Hopefully my running buddy Ali, will be as excited as I am so we can train together. I haven't signed up yet but I'm already getting excited.
To be honest, I usually come up with ideas like this and never follow through. But I made this blog to stay motivated so maybe publishing it will be the push I need. We'll see!
