Yesterday I had one of the best, if not the best, weight training workouts of my life. Ironically, Wednesday evening I was feeling a little weak and tired just before I went to bed, but when I woke up Thursday morning I felt remarkably good. I achieved personal bests for weight and reps on every single exercise that I did (squats, leg extensions, lying leg curls, lunges, one-leg calf raises and standing calf raises). In two cases (one-leg calf raises and lying leg curls), I even did an extra set. I felt great for the duration of the workout – absolutely no fatigue or pain. When I finished my workout, I could barely lift my legs high enough to get in the shower. 🙂 This morning I’m very, very sore (and loving it!)
Today I’m doing 200 ab crunches and 23 minutes of HIIT cardio on the bike. Tonight I’ll be having my “cheat” meal. Yep, you guessed it – my favorite: pizza and beer (or wine). I can’t wait. I really enjoy my once a week indulgence, even if I do feel bloated the day or two after.
Have a great day everyone, I’ll see you tomorrow.
