Straight from my evening jog

So sweaty!

Tonight’s routine:

  • 1min walk, steady 15min jog, 2 sets – I have never ran consistently like this before. It was slow but I didn’t dare stop to walk until my 15 minutes are up. It was a personal achievement for me.
  • Modified agility ladder drills (Used the patios at the garden of our condo complex. They are perfect replacements for an actual agility ladder!) – Fast Feet, Lateral Fast Feet (left and right), In and Out – This was tiring. And quite an ingenious exercise routine if I would say so myself.
  • 2 sets 10 reps of squats and 2 sets of step ups

I loved this routine and I should try this again.

Gym Day: Weight Training

I look forward to my gym days. After every training sessions, I feel strong and lean and light. I had 10 minutes of speed interval on the treadmill and a total body weight training which makes me really really hungry because my metabolism goes hyperactive whenever I do weight training.

It’s so hard when you are doing it, you feel like you are dying right at that moment. But after every set, I feel rejuvenated and then we go on another set.

I can’t seem to get my stance and form right at the beginning, but I pick it up as we go along. I just seem to forget everything. Next time I should be more aware of what I’m doing so my trainer won’t scold me. 😀

I should also remember the names of the exercises we’re doing so I can list it down properly.

 

Didn’t say it was going to be easy

I was in a slump last week. And finally today, with a help of some tv show, I gained back my mojo and hit the gym.

Today’s cardio was 10 minutes at the rowing machine. Worked my butt and legs today with some squats, step ups, lunges and leg curls.

After my routine, I was able to catch the Yogilates class. I loved it. Similar to what I know and only a little more difficult.

I hope I keep this groove longer.
