I worked out for a full hour today. Except for the days when I have my training session with Chelsea, this hasn’t happened much lately.
I set out to do 45 minutes on the E Spinner followed by 15 minutes of core/abs.
I ended up doing the 45 minutes on the E Spinner. It was tough partly because I didn’t have on padded shorts and partly because I tried to stand up too much. Tonight, my knee is pretty sore. I probably wouldn’t have tried riding while standing as much if I had the correct shorts. I learned my lesson. I think I am just going to throw an extra pair of cycle shorts in my J bag. I also wore my heart rate monitor for the first time in months. I need to start working on my intensity now than my knee is getting better. I full think today’s soreness will be temporary and not set me back.
After the 45 minute ride, instead of core/abs, I did 15 minutes on the elliptical while I chatted with a friend.
I’m taking tomorrow off, but will be running errands with the kids. I’m planning on putting a battery in my pedometer and shooting for 8000 steps. I have no idea how my step count has been lately, but I want to make sure I am staying active even if I don’t have a formal workout.
