This week was a much lighter kind of week for me because I wanted to rest my legs as much as possible since today is the big day!!!
Sunday 5/4 – 44 plank on stability ball with knee to elbow.
I did all 44 with my right knee and then switched and did 44 more!!
Just holding plank on the stability ball was hard – pulling my knees in was brutal!!!
Monday 5/5 –44 supermans on stability ball with alternate leg lifts. A right leg lift with superman and a left leg lift = 1 rep.
This was a walking day – 5 miles at 7.5% incline in 75 minutes. I wanted to do something but nothing too challenging!!
Tuesday 5/6 – 44 medicine ball crunches on a stability ball.
Pilates was a good choice for a workout that wasn’t too difficult – Burn and Firm Pilates.
Wednesday 5/7 – 44 reverse crunches with the stability ball under my legs.
Not gonna lie – just holding onto the ball was a challenge!!!
And, because I was super excited about the new shoes I received on Tuesday (I won some Mizuno Hitogamis from Jacqueline @ Skinny Chick Blog), I had to get a run in.
Just 3 miles nice and easy (25:25) with another 0.75 to cool down. I think I’m going to enjoy these shoes for lighter runs/speed work.
Thursday 5/8 – 44 hip raises on stability ball.
This is one of those moves that seems like it will be easy but you will definitely feel it after a few reps!!!
I took the day off from working out – trying to rest my legs some and I knew that I was going to spend about 4-5 hours on my feet cleaning and ironing at our venue so I decided to skip my normal workout.
Friday 5/9 – 44 stability ball squats – barely touch the ball with your butt and come up just a few inches so that you are in a squat the entire time – OUCH!!!
Saturday 5/10 –44 crunch reaches. I needed something quick and easy and this was perfect!!
Today I will spend most of my day here –
