It's amazing how fast your muscles get used to not working out from a short 10 day break. I went back to the gym on Tuesday morning, and did my regular lower body workout. I used slightly less weight than I did before my trip, and I started feeling fatigued after only a couple exercises! Needless to say, I was SO sore for the next 3 days, that I was walking funny. My butt, thighs and quads were all killing me. I couldn't even do my usual stairs for cardio!
Monday 8/25 - Rest day, I was slightly jeg lagged maybe. Or just really tired. I slept for 10 hours!
What I did: Lower body weights.
What I wore: Splits59 Tone Racerback in mint with Lululemon free to be bra in very green under. Lululemon Run For Fun crop in paisley embossed, and Nike Free Bionics in purple.
Lululemon Beach Runner Jacket as to and from:
What I did: Shoulder/tri followed by 30 minutes of cardio - I had to do the 15% incline interval on the treadmill instead of the gauntlet since my legs were so sore!
What I wore: Lululemon Flow and Go tank in white, with Lululemon Empower crop in coal/passion and printed Nike Free 3.0s.
Splits59 Vail cutout pullover in ice/marianna blue as to and from:
What I did: It was supposed to be glute/back/bi day. But my glutes were still in super bad shape so I skipped it and only did the back/bi part. Then I did 30 minutes on 15% incline treadmill again.
What I wore: In honor of the new Seawheeze race last weekend lol, I wore my retro stripe multi cool racerback from last year's Seawheeze. With Lululemon Ebb & Flow crop in black, and Nike Free 5.0 TR Fit 4 shoes in hyper cobalt/bright mango. I love that these shoes have most of the colors of last year's Seawheeze!
Nike Dri-Fit Epic Crew in deep night as to and from:
What I did: Lower body day again - I had recovered barely enough for this workout. I did take it slightly easy too.
What I wore: Lululemon cool racerback in savasana camo fatigue green, with Lorna Jane Arena sports bra in hyper pink marl under it. Lorna Jane Devoted 7/8 tight (forgot I had these for the longest time!) and Nike Free 5.0 TR Fit 4 shoes in fusion pink/atomic mango.
Zobha Biker jacket as to and from:
Saturday 8/30 - Rest day
What I did: My last workout! Upper body supersets followed by (legs finally recovered!) 30 minutes of gauntlet!
What I wore: Lululemon Waterbound Singlet in aquamarine with Lorna Jane Sunrise bra in pale fluro orange under. Lululemon Wunder Under crops in wee are from space fatigue green, and Nike Free 3.0s in gray/crimson.
I think that's a pretty successful first week back! I don't actually mind being sore, since it makes me feel like my workouts are doing something! Haha! I hope you all are having a great long weekend! I plan to do some shopping tomorrow since most stores have Labor Day sales! Off to get ready for dinner now. =)
