Today is my “cross-training” day. I won’t post much on these, as they are always a different Jillian DVD. I have most of her DVDs, so I just rotate to fight boredom. Why do I choose this as my cross training?
1. I could bike. But, I don’t own a bike and I honestly cannot fathom riding it for anything other than pleasure if I did. I admire anyone who can, though.
2, I could swim. No, I CAN swim. You happen to be reading the blog of the lifeguard for my place of employment. Yes folks, I am able to save 90 years olds from their 4 foot pool if need be. Again, this is not something I would do for much more than pleasure, or in emergency situations.
So, I rely on old Jill. Her workouts are hard. Today was “No More Trouble Zones.” I can do hill repeats and not curse, but this workout brings out the swears in me. I will do one of her DVDs and feel it for days. It’s remarkable to feel the muscles I do not use in running. It’s because of that I keep it up.
Braxton enjoys hanging on my feet and acts as a leg weight when I do the leg lowers. Why oh why don’t I have a 6 pack like Jillian yet?! Oh, that’s right. My belly was the size of the whale 11 months ago. That, and chocolate.
