Mondays at the gym are pretty crazy. I think people are trying to make up for the weekend. It also didn’t help that I didn’t get to the gym until 6pm. It was crowded. There were NO free-weights available that were less than 25 pounds. While I wish I could use that size weight, I can’t yet. Well there was one lady hogging a set of 10s, 15s, 20s and a 30# bar. I tried to ask if I could borrow in-between her sets and she was not friendly. So I reverted to the machines. I’m not a huge fan of them, but you still get a quality workout. Here’s what I ended up doing:
Next I headed to the treadmill. I started with 2 minutes walking and then did 5:1 run:walk for 2 miles total. I could have probably gone for 3 miles but in planning out my schedule for this week, I didn’t want to up the miles too fast.
After running I did some sit-ups and planks and then some stretching. The hamstrings are getting their workout, but they feel really tight these days. I was glad I was able to get a quality workout in after a rough start!
