This week’s 44s were all about combining upper and lower body moves – my favorite way to get max results in min time!!
Sunday 8/3 – 44 plies with bicep curls (10 pound dumbbells).
Monday 8/4 – 44 single arm lateral raise with leg abduction (8 pound dumbbells).
And, I can’t just work my right side!!!
This move was hard for me!!!
Strength training – Chalean Extreme Lean Circuit 1.
Running – 6 miles in 44:12 followed by 0.35 easy miles.
Tuesday 8/5 – 44 reverse lunge with shoulder press (8 pound DB).
After completing 44 reps on the right side I had to switch sides!
Long run day – 11 miles in 86:46 followed by 0.9 easy miles.
Wednesday 8/6 – 44 deadlift with row (15 pound DBs).
After the row, stand back up to complete a rep! Deadlifts are one of my favorite moves!!!
I only had a short amount of time to workout so I just lifted weights – Chalean Extreme Lean Circuit 2.
Thursday 8/7 – 44 squat with front raise (hands together on 1 DB – 12 pounds).
And, this was another long run day – 12 miles in 90:02 + 2.4 easy miles.
Friday 8/8 – 44 alternate side lunge with overhead triceps extension. (8 pound DB)
Because I wanted to do 44 lunges to each side, I ended up doing 88 tricep moves!! My triceps are still sore today!!! Plus, keeping my arms overhead the entire time was a big challenge.
I only did Chalean Extreme Lean Circuit 3 – it was a struggle for some reason!!!
Saturday 8/9 – 44 hammer curls with opposite knee lift (12 pound DBs)
I counted a right curl and left curl as 1 rep. This was a great move for really working my core – love balance challenges.
Overall this was a good week of workouts. I didn’t travel to Illinois (obviously!!!) to run the ultra but still got in some good runs and strength workouts.
Happy Saturday (better late than never!!)!!!
