Train like a beast, look like a beauty.  I think I'll make this my new motto!  I felt like a beast after yesterday's workout!  I haven't said this in a long time but...my ass is sore!  And I mean SORE!!  To the point that whenever I sit, I feel the soreness.  I was SO looking forward to my hot bubblebath last night until I sat in the tub...OH, the pain, the pain!  lol  It did eventually feel better in the tub, but my goodness - it is still sore this morning!  Honey-buns is enjoying it because every time I get near him, I'm like "rub my ass"!  Of course, he readily agrees!!  lol  After looking at some of the times posted for yesterday, my wasn't too bad, but I'm more glad to see I wasn't the only one that thought it was a hard workout!  I was blaming it being so hard for me because I missed so many days last week, but apparently it was hard for people who did not miss any days as well.  

Well, today's workout is NOT going to improve my soreness, but it will continue to improve my butt!  Yep...more squats today and hey!  Let's throw in some running as well!  

Complete 3 rounds for time:
   Run 200 meters (.124/mile)
   100 meters of walking lunges (.006/mile)
   50 squats

So...I'm going to slow my treadmill WAY down and try to do the walking lunges on it today.  I'll have to make sure I'm wearing the magnet thingie today though (I don't usually wear it). Doing lunges on a treadmill doesn't sound safe, but we'll see!  This way, I'll know EXACTLY how far 100 meters are because you know...I wouldn't want to do TOO many!  lol  I have to say, just thinking about doing lunges and squats are causing my ass to start throbbing.  NOT a good sign!  ;)

March Madness is a "rest" day today.  YAY!  And no - I do not think I will make up any of my missed days, even though I probably should...but, no.  Just.  No.
21:17 - Not bad!  I set a personal goal of 20 minutes, so I didn't go over that too much.  The squats killed my time!  OMG - between the lunges and the squats, my legs are jello!  And, I'm not talking ready to eat jello, either...more like "it has about 30 minutes until it sets" jello!!!  lmao

Wow...just. Wow!  That was an incredible workout!!  I am very proud to say I ran ALL of the running segments!  Yay me!!  I not only ran them all, but I did them at 5.2 speed, so I'm getting faster.  Like a cheetah!  ha-ha

I slowed the treadmill down to 1.9 speed to do the walking lunges.  I really liked doing them on the treadmill, but there is NO way I can get all the way down like the girl in today's picture at CrossFit.  I couldn't get down that far when I wasn't doing them on the treadmill!  I did manage to get as low as I normally get.  I liked doing them on the treadmill because I couldn't go too far, although I did go too far on round 1.  On my treadmill, 200 meters is 8 blocks which means 100 meters is 4 blocks.  Well, for whatever reason, I was thinking to lunge 8 blocks as well.  It wasn't until I was going from block 5 to block 6 that I realized I went too far!  I was a good girl and did not count the extra 2 blocks for the next round, although I would have on round 3 but I completely forgot about it!  My memory sucks!

Believe it or not, it was the squats that got to me today.  I think doing squats reminded my legs how tired they were from yesterday!  I can't wait to see what my butt has to say later today and in the morning!  lol - GREAT workout!  :)
