Ya know, a good rest is always a good thing, but man is it hard to get back into it. It's so much easier to go out and eat a cheeseburger for lunch, or grab some sushi. And yet, after the workout, I always feel so much better. Today was no exception.
I ran at a leisurely 11 minute pace (figuring I'd ease back into it). Did a whopping 1.9 miles in 20 minutes. Woo hoo - watch out all you fast runners, Miss Snail here is too far behind you to eat your dust!
Stretched, 60 crunches (again---easing back into it) and then my beloved butt exercises. Man they were a godsend to find. Sitting on my duff all day at a computer can really maximize my gluteous maximus. I found these exercises, all done on the floor, that can really isolate the muscles right around the butt.
So my Thankgiving thankful right now is that I have a gym at my office that I can use. There are showers too so I can work up a sweat and still come back to work without smelling like a racehorse. It's a great fringe benefit to working here. A really great benefit.
