50-mile race, Firm in February, 5th graders & Fun Friday!!!

The letter of the day is F!!!

My 43 was an alternating lateral lunge with 5 pound dumbbells that I picked up one on rep and put back down on the next rep.  (Picking up and putting down the weights is a great way to make sure that you get maximum benefits from the lunge because it forces you to get low!)  I counted a right lunge and left lunge as 1 – so it was 43 lunges on each side!

(Poor planning on my part – early morning and no video so I got Chris up at 6:15 when I finished my work-out so he could make a demo before I showered!)  He got to sleep in because he is off today – I was up at 5:00!!!!

The rest of my work-out was Les Mills Combat.  I doubled up today!!  I started with HIIT Power – always brutal!!! Then I did Combat 30 – good but easier than the first!!

Registration opened up today (and I signed up this morning!!!) for the Heartland Ultra-marathon!!  There is a 100 mile race and a 50 mile.  I’m just going to do the 50 (hopefully next year I will be ready for the 100!).  The race isn’t until October but I wanted to sign-up on day 1!  WooHoo – 50 miles!!!  (Anyone want to pace some miles on October 12, 2013?  Let me know!!)

For the short month of February, I thought it would be fun to add in a challenge move every day.   I love all of the challenges that different people offer in the blog world but it is hard for me to follow them completely in addition to doing my own work-outs and running.  I decided to just do something new for myself by picking 1 move and doing it each day in the month of February for the # of reps that goes along with the day of the month.

My move – Wall Sit for 1 minute!!!  DSCN2617

Look – I can even do it after my shower.  Really, that was my whole idea – something that I could just do at different times in the day not just during my sweaty work-out.  By the end of the month it will have to be at a lot of different times of the day – no way will I be doing 28 minutes worth all at the same time!!!

If you decide to pick a move of the month and play along let me know!!!  We could motivate each other!

Today I have a full day of 5th grade!!!  Reading, math, science, social studies……Friday!

So many things (all starting with F) – but one of the best – Fun Friday!!!!
