This week I have been mixing my workouts up again after months of heavy running. I can tell it’s been awhile because I have actually been sore several days which is rare for me!!!
Sunday 3/22 – 45 second hold in 4 different planks.
This was a recovery and driving day – 7 hours to get back from Texas.
Monday 3/23 – 45 minutes on the elliptical.
Return to the middle.
Staying in plie for all 45 reps was HARD!!! And, my obliques have been sore since Tuesday!!!
I just walked 6miles at a 10% incline so that I could watch Dancing with the Stars.
Wednesday 3/25 – 45 single leg BOSU hops. This is another move from a blog friend!! Allie (VitaTrain4Life) showed this move as part of her intense strength training the other day.
This move was hard!!! I did all 45 with my right leg before switching and doing another set of 45 with my left leg.
I did Les Mills Pump – Combat. It’s one of my favorites and I enjoyed punching and kicking!
Thursday 3/26 – 45 standing medicine ball crunches – single knee in. I got so many great moves from blog friends this week!! This move is one of Nellie’s (BrooklynActiveMama) Weekly Wednesday Workouts.
I tried to keep my balance and float my leg back each time but did have to tap my toe a few times. And, of course, I had to switch and do another set of 45 with my left leg.
This was a fun move with the balance challenge.
I finally ran again!! 6 miles in 47:51 + 2 easy miles.
Friday 3/27 – 45 plank to down dog with hands on a foam roller.
I really liked this move – great core work and stretching!!!
I did one of my 10 Minute Solution workouts – Ultimate Boot Camp. Normally I do all 5 sections but I only did 3 this time.
Saturday 3/28 – 45 standing leg circles (hands behind head).
The funny thing with this move is that I felt it as much in my standing ankle as the thigh of the leg circling. Gotta love working on balance/stability!
It was nice to add in a variety of workouts again but I still plan to keep my mileage up.
