Monday Morning Blues

For my 43 today, I took a move that works your butt and by using my BOSU like this

upside down for a twist

turned into a true challenge!!!  Trying to stay balanced really amped up the difficulty level!

I did a “hydrant” kick. Start on all 4s:

balance....steady
balance….steady

Push one leg straight up with a 90 degree bend in your knee.

lift & flex

From this lovely position, move your leg across your other leg and touch the knee to the floor.

reach over & lower!
reach over & lower!

Return to 90, drop the knee straight down and repeat until you reach desired # of reps – 43 for me.  Of course, I can’t walk around unbalanced (any more than I already am!) so I did a second set of 43 with my other leg.  My butt was burning and my core got a great work-out!!!

Today was another day of  Les Mills Combat – Combat 30.  Since it was a short work-out (30 minutes) I decided to do more today.  So I ran!!!

For some reason after I dropped both boys off at school this morning, I was in a bit of a funk.  Not sure why – we had a great weekend, enjoyed the game with friends last night (and I didn’t care about the outcome) – just a bit blue…Screen shot 2013-02-04 at 10.24.10 AM

So, I did what any blue frog would do – RUN!!!

I decided to really push myself and see how far I could run in 43:00 minutes.  I set the incline to 1.5%, started at an 8:00 minute pace (7.5)  and increased  0.1 every 45 seconds.  Outcome:  43:00 minutes = 7.3 miles!!!  (sub 6:00 pace overall).

I think I outran my funk!!!  (or I’m just too tired to know any different!!)

Now, since I put off grocery shopping and other errand running over the weekend, I’m fixing to head to the dreaded Screen shot 2013-02-04 at 10.28.53 AM

Good times for sure!!!

Happy Monday  (hope you aren’t fighting off the blues, too)!!!

4th day of February = 4x 1 minute wall sits – DONE!!!
