Today’s 44 was a great move but it was HARD!!! I did an elevated plank with a KettleBell row.
Just holding the one arm plank was a challenge and then rowing with a 20 pound KettleBell made it really hard!!!
Great – now Hunter is going to be off balance!!! Oh, well, he had already done 50 push-ups so he was tired!!!
I also ran today. The Saturday challenge for #HappyFitMarch is to run a mile and compare it to the previous Saturday’s times. I have been counting my first mile the past few weeks but I think that the next 2 weeks I will count my last miles since I prefer to start out slower and then speed up.
Today I did the same thing that I did last Saturday – timed my first mile out of a 10K.
Last Saturday’s times –
Not much different but…..
Making decisions is sometimes hard. I’m usually a fairly decisive person and don’t tend to dink around with things. However, sometimes I have a difficult time with things that seem like they should be no big deal.
I feel like I go back and forth in my mind over something that in the big picture doesn’t even make that much difference.
But then I always go back to the fact that even small decisions can have a big impact later on down the road.
I think that for me the little things that seem inconsequential can turn into a big deal.
Are you a decisive person or do you go round and round when making decisions?
For my 43 today I borrowed a move from Fitknitchick. On Friday, she had a really great circuit that she shared on her blog. I just took one of the moves from it and turned it into my 43.
The move is an elevated plank knee-in. You start in plank except your feet are on the wall. The higher your feet, the easier the move will be. I tried (key word being – tried!) to keep a level plank because you know I love a challenge! From that crazy position, you alternate bringing your knees in to your chest.
I counted a right knee & a left knee as 1 rep. I’m not gonna lie – this was a HARD 43!!!
Then, I did a bit of Les Mills Combat – Combat 45. I know that the other day Combat 60 Live was my favorite but today this one is my fav!!! I love some of the jumping kicks in this one!!!
I decided to test my Achilles on the treadmill today! I ran 5 miles with 1.5% incline (6:15 pace) – with an easy mile after to cool down. I’m not hobbling right now so hopefully the week without running helped!!!
About the time I finished my run, Chris sent me a text about an upcoming deployment. I’m pretty used to this kind-of thing by now!! However, he said they need some crews.
Ummmm……HELLO!!! I’m running a 50 mile race and you are supposed to be the head of my road crew!! Then we have Jordan’s birthday and stuff…..Can you just tell them we are kind-of busy?? Nope!!
Deployments – what can I say?? The best part of a deployment?
Oh well, several months to get it all worked out!! In the meantime – gotta make every minute count!!
