Kevin and I had decided that we would go for a run. We really need to get a few runs in this week, as Saturday morning we have a 5k race we are running in. We have been running lately, but only after a 13k bike ride so I can get use to the brick for my try-a-tri. This morning was strictly a running workout for the two of us.
So before headed out into the warm damp light rainy weather (I was loving it), I had some oatmeal
- 1/2 mashed up banana
- 1/3 cup of quick oats
- 1/2 tsp nutmeg
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 1 tbsp raisins
Also I was having a hard time catching my breath. Hmmm maybe that asthma that I had back in the day and just stopped taking my puffers for is still hanging around for small appearances.
After our run and stretch, I headed down to the basement with my yoga mat and 2, 5lbs weights. Today was Day 1 of my 30 Shred with Jillian Michaels.
Well I don't know if I am just out of shape from having not done a lot of weights, if it was because of the 5.3k run before, the fact that it's Jillian Michaels, or a combination of it all, but wow 5lbs seemed like 10.
The workout was great though and only like 26 minutes with warm up and cool down. I had Kevin take some before pictures of me so that we can compare before and after results from the 30 Day Shred.
Question: Have you done Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred? Did you like it? Did you get the results you were hoping for?
