Today’s non-running accomplishment:
strength training to the sound of rain
Why is listening to rain so peaceful? I just love it. At 5:20am it started POURING. It wasn’t a light drip drop drip drop sound, but more like gushing down the rain gutter sound. It was so refreshing!
I felt like all the stuff was being washed away. From my mind, from the roof, from the roads, etc. Then it became this lighter rain sound… a more serene sound.
It was just so nice to listen to the sound of rain while I did my exercise. Instead of exercising, I wished I could be sitting outside in the front porch drinking a hot cup of cocoa and watching the rain. But…I did my routine.
30 minutes of ab/core workout
30 lunges w/weight
squat series (same as usual. 10 sumo, 10 regular, 10 side bends: 5 repeats. the 5th round, instead of just 10, I do 15) w/weight
Then I tried something different that I found on YouTube Blogilates workout but didn’t do the whole thing- since I was already running out of time. I did the arm part at the end. I thought my arms were on fire!
I was done!
The rain cleared up by the time I left home so it wasn’t bad of a drive (I don’t know about the mainland, but people just forget how to drive when it starts raining. I hate driving in the rain because of that.)
I kinda wish it would start raining again when I get home so I can get back to the whole let’s watch it rain chill time. I need to feel refreshed again!
Hope everyone has a Happy Tuesday! (or had one..)
