Resting and Running (9/7-9/13)

This week was mostly about 44s and resting!!

Sunday 9/7 44 cross body obliques (standing) – knee to elbow.

I tried to stay balanced on one leg the entire time I was doing this move – sort of a challenge!!  And, I had to do the other side!

I like moves like this – and I love that Jordan is doing homework in the background without a shirt!!!

I did an easy 4 mile run just to shake my legs out a bit!!!

Monday 9/8  44 crunches while laying on the foam roller.

This move was sort of nice on the down part as a stretch!!!

Tuesday 9/9  44 chest fly in crunch position with a band.  This move is one I adapted from Stuft Mama.

Basically I just opened my arms to the side and then up in front while holding my core tight the entire time!!

Wednesday 9/10  44 side lying scissors with legs.

I counted a right leg on top and right leg back as 1 rep.  This move really worked my hips because I kept my legs off the ground the entire time.

And, of course, I had to flip over and get the other side!!

I didn’t get my goal (50 miles) but I run over a marathon and then called it a day (thoughts on the race on Monday!).

Friday 9/12  44 seated leg extensions.

This 44 almost didn’t happen.  Chris and I had to go to Wichita to get stuff for his uniform at the BX and then I sort of forgot.  Better to get it done at 10:00 pm than never!!!

Saturday 9/13  44 3 part stretch.

I did this early this morning before we left for Hunter’s very cold cross country meet which is why I have on about 3 layers of clothes!!  The stretch was just what I needed after running Thursday and spending over 4 hours in the car on Friday.

Happy Saturday!!!  (cold here – I hope this isn’t a sign of the coming winter weather!!)
