Getting some new exercise gear for Christmas helps me want to get back into my old workout routine, but they surely don't replace the workouts I missed... Wowzers! This Christmas I got a pair of Asics tennis shoes and some new Reebok running tights.
these, but aren't exactly the same ones. Mine are purple ombre, which you can tell the color fades down towards my calves. In this photo, the shoes are a washed-out pink... in person, holy smokes they're PINK!
To be perfectly honest, I haven't worked out since we got home from Las Vegas on December 12. I did pretty well between Thanksgiving and leaving for Nevada, but I came home feeling pretty crap-tastic! Warning: Las Vegas, with all it's excitement, lights and fun will wear you down! Between being sick and the holiday hustle, working out kept getting moved lower and lower on my list of priorities.
Yesterday morning I took advantage of the unseasonably warm weather (it was in the 50's here!) and
put in some road time. For those of you who have never ran on a rural country road... Ugh, you're not missing much! It's all well and good one direction, but then when it's time to turn around and head back home you're inevitably running into the wind. Nothing like getting some cardio and resistance training in all at once! In addition to my run, I came home and did some squats and an arm circuit from my Pinterest board. Today, shock of shocks, my legs are VERY sore!
How many of you have let your workouts slip over the holidays?
Who's getting back on the wagon before all the New Year's resolutions flood your Facebook page, Instagram accounts and blog rolls?
