Tonight was my last workout before rest day tomorrow so I wanted it to be good!
I did 35 minutes on the damn elliptical machine. It was killing me I do not know why I was just not feeling it tonight and had to really push myself to finish it. Which is not normal for me because I usually love the elliptical lol
After burning about 250 calories on the elliptical I decided to hop on the treadmill and do my hill routine at a fast walking pace. I was on it for about 5 minutes when I noticed my heart rate was not rising above 130, when I run it is usually 150-165 so I knew I needed to find a way to boost it up and achieve my usual results. I started punching and ducking. It went pretty good, I was alternating between cross punches and hooks and jabs. It worked! I got my heart rate up to 161 and I got it to stay there! I was pretty excited. I am sure I looked a little ridiculous punching the air, but I thought who the hell cares? Did I not look ridiculous before when I was overweight and trying to attempt to workout? I think I will take a few crazy glances especially if I burned 200 calories on an 18 minute hill walking treadmill routine! :)
I came home and put on Jillian's No More Trouble Zones and just pushed through it. I really was thinking to myself c'mon tomorrow you will rest tonight you better push it! And I pushed it I left it all there on the floor I worked my ass off! It is such a good feeling knowing you ended a workout strong and really earned the rest day coming up!
