Mission Complete!!

Today’s 43 was a fun one.  I did a modified version of a single-arm clean and press.

The single arm clean and press is a whole body exercise focusing on the lower body, the core and the shoulders. By doing this move one arm at a time, the core has to work extra hard to keep your body balanced and the combination of movements really gets your heart rate up.

  1. Stand with feet hip-width apart, holding a weight (I used a 10 pound dumbbell) in the right hand.
  2. Squat down touching the weight the the floor and keeping the back straight, abs in and the knees behind the toes.
  3. Push back up, pulling the weight up into a single arm row.
  4. In a smooth movement, flip the elbow down and the weight up and press the weight overhead.

Because I’m still trying to take it a little easy on my lower body, I took out the squat (thus the modified version).  I did 43 reps with my right arm and then immediately did 43 with my left arm.  I think I might feel this in my shoulders tomorrow.

After my 43, I decided that a light jog would work out the last of the soreness in my legs.  I’m happy to say that even though it is a couple days late, I finished my 43 miles!!! I did an easy 5.5 today and felt good doing it.

Looking forward to the next 43!
