Shaking My Head

After the heavy leg weekend of biking and running last weekend, I could definitely relate to this on Monday and Tuesday.  It’s one of the best, worst feelings in the world.  That may sound like a contradiction, but if you’ve felt it, you know exactly what I mean.  And not to mention, this is just a pretty funny picture, anyways.

I don’t know why but this seemed funny to me, and completely true.  For those of you going through the mid-week lull, remember, things can always get a little worse.

Exercise of the Week

Toe Touch Lunge Jump

We’ve been doing this exercise in class for a little while now, but it still may be new to some of you.  If it is new to you, you’re in for a treat.  The exercise goes just as the name indicates.  With your lunge jump, you’re going to take your hand down to touch your opposite foot.  Make sure you bend with your knees as opposed to your hips.  Trust me, this is going to make it burn a little more, but it will be worth it.  A great exercise for people at all fitness levels.
