Hey, guys How’s the start of your week going?
I’m happy to report that as the hours went on yesterday, my knee felt better and better. I was oh-so-tempted to go and lift, but instead of going against my better judgment, as I do sometimes, I listened to my intuition and rested one more day. Today, however, I’m hoping to get a light lifting workout in the gym after training some morning clients. It just freaked me out so much, because my knees never give me pain! I refuse to believe it’s because I’m getting old, too. I hate thinking that way!
While not working out or hiking, I spent the majority of my morning running around Boulder – teaching a HIIT class at Movement and doing samplings and seedings for KIND.
^At Hope Foods, who just so happens to make my favorite hummus ever, Thai Coconut Curry hummus. It’s slightly sweet, and incredibly delicious. They’re also organic, sustainable, and donate 10% of profits to local communities in need, which is pretty darn awesome in my book
I also did a little last minute super secret birthday shopping for Shane. Yep, Shane turns the big 3-2 today!
I’m hoping to make his day special by doing some of his favorite things tonight: relaxing at home and getting barbeque ribs and pulled pork. Ha! He’s easy to please. No really, though. I couldn’t be more proud of him. He’s made it very far for his age (and I know it’s just going to get bigger and better for him!) and has overcome some serious adversity. He’s the most generous and kind person I know, too. I guess you could say that I’m so happy that he was born 32 years ago
But enough sap for the day, let’s get to a workout!
I just started teaching Indoor Cycling, but I thought I’d still share with you all a workout that you can do at home or the gym on a stationary bike. I got great feedback on this class, and loved the playlist
As always, please check with your doctor before beginning any new exercise program.
What’s your favorite kind of hummus?
