Ready for a Rest Day

There are lots of weeks that I don’t want to take a day off!  This week, however, I’m ready for one!!!

I’m doing Brooke’s (Wrecking Routine) current workout – Boomer’s Burn so that will be part of my workouts for the next month – this week has been full of some great workout!!!

Sunday 9/21  45 single leg hip lifts (bridge).

Not gonna lie – this was almost 10:00pm Sunday night.  We had a busy day and it almost got away from me but I still got in my 45.

Monday 9/22  45 deadlift with wide fly.

I reversed the move and stood to complete one rep.  I only used 5 pounds dumbbells because this move is challenging for me!!!

Today the Boomer’s Burn workout  was strength mixed with cardio – nice!!!

Plus 6 miles of running in 46:48 followed by 0.65 easy miles.

Tuesday 9/23  45 arabesque leg lifts.

Staying balanced for 45 reps was part of the challenge!!!  I switched sides and did some more!

I did PiYo – Define Lower Body and Define Upper Body.  Maybe because I could hold the moves a bit better or something but I liked it a little more than I did last week.

Boomer’s Burn was all about intervals today!!!

Wednesday 9/24  45 elbow plank to pike.

I really liked this move!!!

Boomer’s Burn was strength work again – always a good thing!!!

And it was a running day – 9 miles in 66:34 followed by 0.75 easy miles.

Thursday 9/25  45 split leg calf raises with toes turned out.  (I actually liked this move so much from one of the workouts from Brooke  this week that I made it a 45.)

I’m not sure if it made a huge difference or not but I decided that I should do another set with my left leg in front.

I did a workout that I always forget how good it is until I do it – Core Fusion Body Sculpt.  There is no jumping or even anything that gets your heart rate up but it is an incredible workout!!!

Boomer’s Burn was another interval workout – so fun to really have to push my speed!!!

Friday 9/26  45 fist bumps while holding boat pose.

This move went quickly but it is a great way to add a bit of a challenge to boat pose.

Boomer’s Burn was a great strength workout that really targeted the core.

And, I logged some more miles – 10 miles in 73:00 followed by 1.65 easy miles.

Saturday 9/27  45 standing bird dog with TaeBo bar.

This move requires lots of core strength because staying balanced while you pull your leg in and out is Hard!!

This was a modification on a move from Brooke’s program – I really liked this move!!!

Today is my “rest” day – just cleaning at the venue and hours of ironing!!

Happy Saturday!
