So today I cannot run because I ran the last 2 days and it is not reccomended to run every day.
Well I got on the elliptical with a good book and my head phones and set the cross train reverse routine to do 35 minutes and I ended up doing 40 minutes without even realizing it!!! haha I was jamming away and into the book I was reading and I stopped to check how much longer Ihad to go and was amazed that the time was stopped at 35 and I had just been going along. I knew it was 40 minutes and a few seconds from my Polar Monitor.
Then I got on the treadmill and did the hill routine for 18 minutes. For a total of 1.25 miles and an incline average of 3.
I walked home and was getting set up to do No More Trouble Zones by my favorite Jillian Michaels but an add caught my attention and I decided to switch things up! I put on Red Zone Toner Workout with Nicole Eggert. It was a 20 minute minute routine with her and her trainer. It was different than what I am used to but I feel it was a nice change of pace. They combined dynamic moves to focus on your shoulders, arms, core and legs. I did not feel it was as quite of a grueling workout as JM so I am not sure yet if I will do it all the time but it was a nice change of pace. For example I just did not feel my arms were worked enough but my legs and butt are sore so I know different muscles got worked than I am used to. I think I would do the video again on a moderate cardio day like today.
I did not burn as many calories as I do when running but I still did not do bad
