Old School Blogging Fun

Today’s 43 utilized my figure-8 band:

I put it around my ankles and did a side-lying leg lift with the added challenge of keeping my bottom leg off the ground –  a double leg pull against the band.

The first 25 weren’t too bad  – it was kind of nice to do a move where I could “relax” – then by the last 20ish my outer thigh and hips were burning!!!  And, I still had to do 43 on the other side!!

I felt the 2nd side much sooner – because my hips were already on fire!!!

Another day of Insanity Asylum – Speed and Agility.  This was hard in every way today!!!  My legs were tired from the beginning!  I think the double (and a couple days of triple) workouts last week are catching up.  But I’m a little anal and want to finish this Insanity program the way it is set up!!! (just 2 more weeks!)

This is a totally different kind of post for me!!  It’s a fun little A-Z quiz.  I was tagged by the lovely Nellie at Brooklyn Active Mama to complete this Old School Blogging Quiz being hosted by Elaine and Jennifer.

T. Tag 5 People.  

OK – tagging people is why I typically stay away from these kind of quizzes.  I don’t mind doing the quiz but it is hard for me to pick just 5 (I would love to learn more about all my blogging friends) – and I never want anyone to feel obligated to participate!!!
