In general my workout routine consists of using the studio room at the gym to perform plyometric body weight exercises. Sometimes I bring a Samsung tablet along to play youtube videos such as FITNESS BLENDER.
Additionally, I have been doing a lot running for 2 reasons
#1 Black Girls Run - Boston of which I am an ambassador, has a 50miles for July Challenge
#2 My friends in Atlanta have a NIKE+ Summer challenge going on till August which concides with their wedding season
Because I have been traveling so much, I am losing on both ends. To get back into a winning position with the rest of the participants in the challenges, I've increased the number of miles am running per week.
This is great and impressive until you develope shin splints which is what am currently battling. I feel like my shin splints are not necessarily from increasing my mileage but developed from the following reasons
- Not stretching enough before and after runs☆Guilty☆
- Worn out shoes ☆Guilty☆
- Changing terrains ☆ Guilty☆Guilty☆Guilty☆
Or maybe am just in denial that am out of shape and my body does not appreaciate doing more than 10miles a week.
Also I am considering adding spinning as a cross training option for my shins.
Keeping it really with my zero abs.
I dont regret my VACATIONS lol.
Add me on NIKE+ and let's encourage each other to keep running and burning those calories
