Catching Up

Today my 43 ended up being my work-out, too.  I decided to use our stairs to really work my legs.  I went up the stairs sideways skipping every other step:

push off bottom leg
push off bottom leg

On the way down, I stayed sideways but didn’t skip steps.

down (slight hold on rail)
down (slight hold on rail)

Because I didn’t want one leg to get more work (or be stronger!!), I did 2 sets of 43 – one leading with my right leg (left leg pushing off) and the other leading with my left leg (right leg pushing off).

The move is like a sideways squat (just on an uneven surface) and it took 7 “squats” for each trip up the stairs so I did 301 “squats” with each leg!!!  Not too shabby – plus I kept the pace pretty quick so I got my heart rate up!!

Then I decided to try a plank hold on my elbows instead of with my arms extended.  For some reason, this one was harder – 3:30 today.

Since getting home yesterday around noon, I feel like I have been going non-stop and today is jam-packed!!

Last night Hunter played in the district string fest – 6th, 8th and high school orchestras.String FestIt was pretty cool to hear the difference a few years can make!  Plus the 6th graders are from 6 different schools in the district and only had 1 practice all together – pretty impressive!!!

The finale was God Bless America (love that song!!) and all of the orchestras played together on it – I just recorded part of it since it was long.

I missed a lot over the weekend with the sleepover and all but thankfully Chris took some pictures of the cake making and birthday celebrating!!Rubik CakeLooks like fun was had by Jordan during the afternoon and Hunter and his pals that evening!!

Now I’m off to tackle a mile-long to-do list which includes a dentist appointment, DR appointment, afternoon spent subbing PE…….

Happy Wednesday!!
