Today I thought I would give my upper body a little break with the 43 and do a leg exercise. (It has been hard to come up with non-weight bearing moves that still offer a challenge for my lower body!!!)
I took one of my Pilates moves and turned it into the 43. I did a leg lift that included complete range of motion.
- Lie on left side – body in a straight line – propped on left elbow
- Point right toes and place it slightly in front of left foot
- Lift right leg straight in the air
- Flex right foot and lower leg behind left foot
- Point toes and raise right leg in the air
- Flex foot and lower in front of left leg
The above is 1 rep. This move should be performed in a smooth, controlled manner. And, of course, I did 43 with my right leg and 43 with my left leg!
(I left my socks on because my feet get cold!!!)
After working my legs – and I felt it for sure – I decided to work on my plank hold again. I did another 3 minute plank – I’m not sure I will ever be able to hold it longer than that. (makes my wrists hurt)
Last night was Hunter’s cello bash (and by bash I mean LONG concert – good but LONG – like 2.5 hours!) and I had big plans to post a video of him playing his duet. Ummm….apparently, if you don’t charge your camera battery in advance then you get a message that says – battery exhausted. I tried using my iPhone but I couldn’t zoom in and blah, blah, blah – no video to share.
Here is a close rendition!
Oh, maybe not – but he did a great job as did all of the cellists last night!
Tonight we are going to our first Hanukkah party – I’m very excited!! Love to learn new things!
