I punked out again last night and opted for an at-home workout instead of heading to the gym in the cold. My toes were numb by the time I made the short walk from the Metro to my house, so I decided I’d just stay inside.
Since the Biggest Loser season premier was last night, I felt it was appropriate to let Jillian kick my butt as well.
I can tell all the Jillian work I’ve been doing lately is starting to pay off. My muscles don’t fatigue as easily while I’m doing some of the strength moves. Score one for building up some strength.
While I’m happy with that fact that I’ve been much more dedicated to building strength lately, I feel like I’ve been completely slacking on my running. The last time I ran was about two weeks ago when I was home in Allentown and it ended with lots of hip pain. At some point soon I need to get back on the running horse and log something short. Maybe today will be the day.
In BL news, I live tweeted like crazy last night about the show. I can’t believe how big some of the contestants are this season. I truly don’t know how it can be safe for someone who is 500+ pounds to workout like they do on that show. It’s got to put his heart at risk.
