Tonight, I was laying on my couch watching Law and Order, thinking about how I never do strength training anymore. Marathon training has sucked away my desire to do push-ups for some reason â€“ I think Iâ€™ve reach a natural point of â€œI donâ€™t want to exercise anymoreâ€ than I already am (which is approximately 4 hours, 10 minutes a week of running over the last 18 weeks!).
The other night, I twittered:
It would be kind of cool to be able to crush boys in weight lifting, although this tan freaks me out:
Made you laugh! 🙂
Anyway, so instead of just thinking about how I need to do some strength moves (as opposed to straight cardio or yoga), I dropped to the floor and did a bunch of push-ups and sit-ups.
Wahoo! It always feel so great to take ACTION instead of just laying on the couch thinking about doing it.
Afternoon snacks included an orange:
Plus, afternoon ice cream:
And dinner was simple because I was tired:
Veggie soup, bread with buttah, and green beans.
I got a SIGNIFICANT amount of book work done today, but my night is not over! Time to drop James into the tub and give him a scrub.
Do you use weight machines, free weights, or body weight to strength train? Or are you a cardio goddess like me? I need to lift some weights â€“ itâ€™s good for my bones!
