My son was a bit disappointed this morning when there was just a dusting of new snow and school was in. Admittedly, I was a little disappointed too. I was looking forward to just hanging out with my two boys today. We'll have another snow day, I'm sure.
I did keep my promise to myself. I worked out today. I have a number of workouts pinned on Pinterest so I began my morning by picking one that I thought I could get through without too much trouble. I found a great one. It took about 40 minutes to complete and BOY am I sweating up a storm! I did end up making a few modifications....
High knees weren't pretty...more like a march but with high knees. :)
Plie Squat - I added a light kettle bell. It's what I would do in the gym and I figured the extra calories burned certainly wouldn't hurt - especially where I had to drop one of the exercises.
Split Squats - I tried but just am not quite ready to do these yet. I didn't want to risk an injury so it's out.
Butt Kickers - more like fast kickbacks. I can't be running or jumping around with my plantar fasciitis. I have to work with what I have and change the movement to work for me.
I'll be honest though, there was a lot of self-talk going on. I wanted to stop after the first round but looked at the time and told myself to press on and to two rounds. When the third came up, I told myself I wanted to see my inner athlete so I pushed on.
My legs are a little jellylike but it's all for the greater good.
Tomorrow's workout will focus more on the upper body and a bit on the core.
