A bum ankle is forcing me to look beyond running for a way to get my heart pumping, so I bought a used $25 spin bike. Twice this week I used it and while it was a workout, I kept wishing it could be harder or push me more.
Whoops. Started regretting that last night during workout #3. I looked up "spin classes" on youtube and did my best to pretend I knew what I was doing. I still have no clue what I'm doing, but at least after an hour I was drenched in sweat and figured out how to actually adjust the resistance. Let's just say, I won't assume anyone's spin workout on DailyMile was "easy" anymore:
Note I still wore my "Run" Bondiband, even on the bike. I'll bike if I have to, but dang it I still wish I was running! Maybe the best part about the workout was that I actually had that amazing glowing feeling after a tough workout. You know the one I mean? When you've conquered a super fast mile or Yasso 800s and you feel like you're on top of the world? Love that.
Exhausted but happy. Perfect.
So I did end up getting a TV yesterday and braving Black Friday madness, but luckily by 10am the stores were basically empty. We got the TV we wanted and didn't get shot, robbed or blasted with pepper spray. Win win.
So now we have a TV, we actually have to pay for some television shows too. Out here it's Dish, which means nothing to me but apparently we'll get more channels than our current ZERO, so that should be fun. Any recommendations on what to start watching?
Any workouts you used to think were "easy" that now kick your butt?
Spinning, pilates and yoga I used to think were all rest day workouts, but I'm realizing there are ways to push it during all three to make them TOUGH!
Anyone brave Black Friday sales and score anything good?
We got a TV that was slightly on sale, a box of Nerds and two glass jars. I'm pleased.
What are your favorite TV shows to watch? I need some recommendations!
I have a few sitcom favorites : The Office, Community, Modern Family, etc. But I don't know about any of the newer shows - anything worth watching?
