On Sunday, I did a weird workout! Since I am trying to only run about twice a week, that means I am being extremely creative when it comes to my other workouts!
The plan was to do some walking and lifting. I never lift without warming up!
Piano bench, weight bench, what's the difference?
Even though it was raining, I walked to a playground a couple blocks from our house. I did 5 pull ups on the monkey bars, walked around the block, did 5 more pull ups... etc. etc. etc. until I got 5 sets of pull ups in. Walking was way better than just standing there and resting in between sets. I even wore my lifting gloves so my hands wouldn't slide off of the wet bars!
After that, I took the long way home and stopped every 1/10 of a mile or so to do some plank knees on the sidewalk. It had really started raining by now!
When I got to my house, I got out my pull up bar and did several sets with overhand grip. I used a band for assistance. In between sets? I walked up and down my block!
The band doesn't offer too much assistance, so I always feel like I want to throw up!
Then I did several more lifts with my free weights and my standard bicycle crunches. In between sets, I did some stretches for my glutes and hips.
I ended up doing the lifting workout above as well as walking 4 miles!
I told you it was really raining!
I don't know why I was feeling so ADD on Sunday. Some days a weird workout like this wouldn't agree with me, but for some reason, on Sunday, it was exactly what I needed!
Do you ever do weird/random workouts like mine?
