So, it's pretty easy to guess what part of the body most women are concerned about re-shaping post-partum. If you guessed "abs," you are correct! There is no prize.
Typically, I don't do a lot of strength work because:
A. I'm lazy. And,
B. I'd rather watch TV.
But, I figured yesterday that I could do a lazy version of yoga with a 10 minute yoga program that I stream through Netflix -- thus satisfying the ab work, albeit lazily and with the TV. I did the 10 minute warm-up (sun salutations, mostly) and then did the 10 minute ab workout. It was hard. I did my best to keep up, but I mostly just flailed about and hoped for the best.
Afterward, I ate a grilled cheese sandwich. Because 10 minutes of an ab workout = a cheesy reward!
I thought I'd be sore today, but I wasn't -- guess I didn't do enough flailing -- but when I started my run, I did feel a distinct bit of tightness in my gluteous maximus. That's right: I had a bit of ass-soreness from my ab workout! Which just confirms my fear that with age + kids, everything heads south.
Eh, it didn't slow me down for my run: Still got 3 miles done in 28:59 on the treadmill.
