I woke up this morning with my calves being just a touch sore… but not even enough to affect my gait. Score! Maybe I can do well at Nashville next weekend after all.
I headed down to the gym to lift weights (arms only – I know to give my legs a rest), and while I was on the dip/pull up machine, my legs were flexing every time I was pushing the assistance bar down with one foot in preparation to start my reps. To the immediate left of the machine is a full length mirror, and when I glanced over, my legs were HOT! The muscles were tight and defined, almost in a body building way but not quite. My arms workout wasn’t great (I’ve been slacking lately, and it showed in the number of reps and amount of weight I could do), but as soon as I got back up to my apartment, I snapped a few shots of my legs with the help of my bathroom mirror. This is getting posted on my medals wall for further inspiration when I don’t want to run!
Today, I don’t have any running planned… just a bit more weight lifting while I catch up on Survivor. I will do a good amount of (non-exercise) walking though, when I meet my friend for a Chinatown shopping trip. Fake bags, here I come! And don’t think for a second that I’m not going to wear a miniskirt today 🙂
