Another week has gone by and that means another week of workouts to share with you all!
Monday – I had every intention of waking up at 6 am to get in a morning workout before work & then head to the gym after work for spin class. But guess what? That didn’t happen. I was tired and slept in then I hit too much traffic on the way home and couldn’t make it to the gym in time for class.
So instead I tried my first ever kettlebell workout at home. With most Jillian Michaels’ DVD workouts, there is a beginner level and a second level. I started with the beginner level and a 5lb kettlebell since I really had no idea what I was doing.
Tuesday – 21 Day Fix time! This time I tried the Cardio Fix workout since I haven’t tried that one yet. It was a quick 30 minutes but sure kicked my booty. It wasn’t such a bad way to start my Tuesday morning.
Wednesday – I woke up nice & early before work to get in a 21 Day Fix Upper Body workout. Yay for me! Then after work I decided I was going to go for a run. Why would I do a thing like that? Because I’m crazy. Running has never been my thing and this reminded me of that. I ran a mile and my shins and hips were is so much pain it was ridiculous. Maybe as a person who has had bursitis in her hips I should of known better. Just a thought?
Thursday – An unplanned rest day since my hips were still killing me. I also ate a hot dog since it was #NationalHotDogDay but that really has nothing to do with my workouts. I just really love hot dogs 🙂
Friday – I decided to stick to something a little less intense so I went with the 21 Day Pilates Fix before I headed off to work.
Saturday – Can you believe my hips were still sore?! I figured maybe it was a good time to try the 21 Day Fix Yoga to try and loosen them up. This was my first time trying the Yoga Fix and it was just ok. I personally like the 21 Day Fix Pilates much better but then again I’ve never been the biggest fan of Yoga. I do it occasionally to de-stress myself and relax but as a weekly workout I’m not too sure about it yet.
Sunday – Rest Day
So what did I learn from this week of workouts? Running is not for me. I prefer less impact type workouts. My muscles weren’t too sore after the run but the pain in my shins and hips were just not worth the pain. I’ll stick to Spin for an intense cardio session and I will only run if being chased 🙂
Anyone else experience shin & hip pain after running?
