Today was an amazing exercise day. I started with 20 minutes on the elliptical, and then survived an incredibly painful personal training session. Imagine this: standing in tree pose while doing overhead triceps presses with a weighted ball. Yeah, I did that. I also did one legged calf raises and one legged ball squats. She really had a thing about single limb use today. But, I survived, and even remembered to stretch when the torture was over.
So, that was the morning. The evening exercise was so much more fun. I was so sore and tired when I walked into the gym. The instructor for the Friday night yoga class has been switching things up a little bit each week. Tonight she did a really great quad stretch. When I left the gym I felt almost good as new. It's amazing what a good stretch can accomplish!
