A Little Bit of Everything!! (6/1-6/7)

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).

Because I was so sore from all of last weeks workouts I thought about not lifting but…..

I did Turbo Jam  Cardio Party 3 to kind of work out the kinks.  Then I was ready to go with Chalean Extreme Burn Circuit 3 (heavy shoulder work – joy!!!).

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.

Thursday 6/5  44 box step-ups with kettle bell (20 pounds).  This is a move that Josie @ Yum Yucky did the other day (minus the kettle bell) as part of her full body fat burning challenge.

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!

Happy Saturday!!

Kim
