I mowed the lawn after work and STUPIDLY didn’t put on bug spray. I paid for it hardcore with several dozen bites on the back of my legs. So itchy!
Warmup: 10 minutes elliptical
- 1 minute ReACT trainer, 5 pushups (x5)
- 200 meter row, 10 KB swings (x5)
I’ve noticed when I do the ReACT that my hip flexors have weakened up quite a bit and I’ve lost some of my flexibility and mobility in my hips. I need to go back to yoga – that will help loosen them up.
I finally went to yoga! Jaye was a little tough on us, but it was a good class. My hips are super tight.
I spend a lot of time foam rolling and stretching. For some reason, when I foam roll, I tend to neglect my IT band. When I rolled them for the first time in ages, they hurt so bad! Guess I need to work on that.
Did a pretty light workout:
- 10 minutes elliptical
- 3 rounds of :30 bird dog hold each side, then :30 plank
- 3 rounds of 10 TRX rows and 10 TRX push ups
After a crazy week at work, we just relaxed on Friday night. We got some Mexican food with Michael’s brother and just had a relaxing evening!
On Saturday, we woke up early and drove up toward DC to see my brother and his fiancé. We had a mimosa tour of the house, went for a hike at Great Falls, went to a house warming party, and had homemade strawberry ice cream! I don’t know how they have so much energy. By Friday, I’m shot.
We slept in a little bit, then went to a cool restaurant called Ted’s Bulletin for brunch. I had fabulous chicken and biscuits that I forgot to get a picture of because I devoured it.
Do you have siblings? Do you get to see them often?
