Catching Up (9/28 – 10/11)

I didn’t do my normal Saturday post last weekend so I have 2 weeks worth of 45s to share today!!!

I’m still doing Brooke’s (Wrecking Routine) workouts – Boomer’s Burn.  Lots of great workouts everyday!!!

Sunday 9/28  45 cross body inner thigh raises.

lift leg (squeeze inner thigh)

Besides working your thighs, this move is great for balance!!!  And because I like balance I had to switch sides and repeat –

left leg ready

lift and squeeze

Monday 9/29  45 front kick-back kick while standing on a wobble ball.

This move was definitely a challenge!  I wobbled a lot.  Even though I only did one leg in the video, I did 45 with both legs.

Boomer’s Burn was a combination of strength and running – my favorite!!!

Then a 6 mile run in 41:53.

Tuesday 9/30  45 T push-ups.

Coming all the way back up from the floor is no joke!!!

I found a Piyo workout that I really liked – Core!  This one was so much more fun for me than some of the previous ones!!!

Boomer’s Burn was an interval workout – love really pushing myself for short bursts!!

Wednesday 10/1  45 curtsey lunges with a side bend while keeping hands raised overhead.

I did all 45 with the right leg then switched and did another set with the left leg lunging.

Boomer’s Burn was all about strength work!!!

And, it was a running day – 8 miles in 60:16.

Thursday 10/2  45 arm circles with 5 pound weights.

The video messed up but it is a basic move – hold your arms out to the sides and circle front for 45 circles then back for 45.

I did Fat Burning Pilates – a decent workout without killing myself!!!

Boomer’s Burn was all about intervals – this one was awesome and I did a total of 6 miles to complete the workout!!!

Friday 10/3  45 wacky jacks.

Thanks to Jordan for letting me record him on this move.

I skipped my normal workout because I had been up all night Thursday night stirring my crockpots of taco meat.  (I thought it would be FUN to do all the food for Chris’ party!!!)

Saturday 10/4  45 standing crunch with a knee in (arms raised overhead the entire time).

Switch sides and do 45 more –

I loved this move – so much more fun to do standing crunches!!

Stacy and I got in a cold run around the lake (6 miles) before we started working on the last minute stuff for the big party.  Always fun to run with Stacy since it rarely happens!!

Sunday 10/5  45 ottoman push-ups to Griffin!!!

Hi, Griffin

I was keeping Griffin entertained (and awake) while Mandi finished getting ready and packing for their drive home!!!

Monday 10/6  45 squats on wobble balls – alternate touching inside of right foot and left foot (right-left = 1 rep).

ready - trying not to fall off

squat  - touch right hand to left foot

This move was fun!!  I tried to squat low – I don’t always go below 90 when I squat but on this day I did!!

Boomer’s Burn was a cardio/strength workout again – one of my favorites!!!

I also ran 6 miles in 44:37.

Tuesday 10/7  45 triangle presses.

left hand down right hand up
left hand down right hand up

This move is a good one to do slowly and really work on the stretch.  I’m not super flexible so it is a challenge for me!!!  (I counted a right-left as 1 rep)

I did another Piyo workout that I really liked – Buns – some fun ways to work my butt!!!

Boomer’s Burn was another great interval workout!!  I think that even after I finish this program next week I will keep incorporating interval days – love how hard it makes me push myself!!!

Wednesday 10/8  45 leg circles (on all 4s) with leg at about a 45 degree angle from body.

position

This is the basic position – it doesn’t really matter if you circle font or back – same effect.  I had a video but encountered some technical difficulties.  I did  45 with each leg!!

Boomer’s Burn focused on body weight moves (I did end up adding weights though)!

And I managed 9 miles in 66:30 – lately I haven’t been able to get in many long runs – need to work on that!

Thursday 10/9  45 jack with front kick.  This move is one that Nellie (Brooklyn Active Mama)  just posted about for a Weekly Wednesday Workout.

Thanks to Hunter for doing the demo!!!

I counted a right kick and a left kick as one rep.  I actually added a bit more of a hop on the kicks.

I found another one of the Piyo workouts that I like – Strength Intervals!!!

This was supposed to be another interval day for Boomer’s Burn but I ended up just walking 3.5 miles.

Friday 10/10  45 plie squats with feet on wobble balls.

Staying balanced on the balls was harder for a plie squat than a regular squat!!!

I finished up the week with a strength workout for Boomer’s Burn!!!

Saturday 10/11  45 front kick with toe touch – a stretching move and very hard for me!!!

right kick - touch with left hand
right kick – touch with left hand

I did all 45 with my right leg and then switched to do more with my left.

left kick - touch with right hand
left kick – touch with right hand

I think that I have less flexibility on this side!!!

I’ve been trying to mix up my workouts and still keep running – my mileage is lower than it had been for awhile but that is probably a good thing!!!

Happy Saturday!

Kim
