Warm Up & Cool Down

Alright, be honest... Do you consistently do a warm-up and cool-down with every workout?  I know I sure don't.  Now that I have finally relaxed from writing at school, I have been able to catch up on some reading I've been backed up on.  One of the things I want to share with you is warm-up and cool-down, or the WU/CD as I'll be referring to it :)

You would never jump into an aerobics class like kickboxing or Zumba without a WU/CD right?  So why would you do it for other activities, such as running, or even weight-lifting?

Recently, a friend introduced me to a blog from a local gym, Boutique Fitness in New Bedford, MA.  It is fantastic!  They have such wonderful little tips and recipes available.  In addition, they have great videos that are easily incorporated into the beginning and end of any workout!  Check them out if you have time!

I did a nice little 2 mile run with Randy yesterday.  It was chilly with the wind around the pond, and my lungs hurt pretty badly by the end!  It was my first run since the half marathon though, so baby steps!  We did P90X Ab Ripper X when we got home... TOUGH haha SORE today, that's for sure!!

Shameless plug

Hey everyone!  Please do me (and yourself) a favor and watch this video of my boyfriend, Randy, killing this guitar solo!  If you can take a moment and post a comment, it would be really appreciated :)
