This week was full of running, weights, kettle bells for the daily 44s and of course – Hunter’s half marathon!!!
Sunday 6/1 – 44 standing chest presses with kettle bell (17 pounds).
Then it was 7 miles in 53:16 + 2 easy miles.
Monday 6/2 – 44 pile squat with kettle bell row (20 pounds).
Because I was so sore from all of last weeks workouts I thought about not lifting but…..
Tuesday 6/3 – 44 Russian twists with kettle bell (14 pounds).
I counted a right-left-right as 1 rep. Russian twists are never my favorite and adding the KB made them really hard for me!!!
And, it was another running day!!
15 miles in 1:56.37 followed by an easy 0.75 miles.
Wednesday 6/3 – 44 jump squats with kettle bell behind my head (20 pounds).
I had a video but technical issues so I went with the picture instead. Just know that jumping and landing in a squat without beating myself to death with the KB was quit challenging!!!
This was a double workout day!!!
First, Chalean Extreme Burn Circuit 1 – thankfully it wasn’t quite as painful as last week!!!
Then, I had to run since it was National Running Day!!!
5 miles in 34:56 + 2.3 easy miles.
And after my left leg was shaking then I had to do a quick stretch and switch sides!!!
This move was HARD!!!
I did a DVD that I haven’t done in ages – Quick Fix Total Mix. This has 9, 10 minute workouts. I only did 6 because that’s all I was feeling – 2 different ab workouts, 2 for the butt and 2 for legs and arms!
Friday 6/6 – 44 alternating lateral lunges with kettle bell – figure 8s (20 pounds).
I liked this move!! I counted a right lunge/left lunge as 1 rep and just moved the KB in a slow controlled way!!
And, I ran again!!
7 miles in 47:50 + 2 easy miles.
Saturday 6/7 – 44 knee repeaters.
(clearly not me – for some reason I can’t get my videos to load right now)
I love this move – it is a great warm-up for the day. And of course, this is a move that had to be the same on both sides!!!
And, the rest of my workout is fixing to take place!!!
Hunter and I are off to the races. We are running Storm the Dam half marathon. It is a trail race so that will be new for me.
I am so excited to run with Hunter in his first half – it will be awesome!! Hopefully he will share about his training and race experience soon!
