This week was all about taking it easy with the workouts after last weeks high mileage. And, my legs needed the break – they were tired!!!
Sunday 8/31 – 44 jump lunges (straight up and down in lunge position).
This was a fun way to get the heart rate up!! It was hard to catch a good picture of me jumping:)
And, then I had to switch legs and do some more jumps –
Hunter did a pretty good job snapping a picture while I was in the air!!
Monday 9/1 – 44 reverse lunge to single leg T-stand.
My right hip was dying by the time I finished all 44 of these!!! And, then I had to work my left hip!
Can you tell that my balance isn’t as good on my left side? I’m not very parallel in that last picture!!!
Tuesday 9/2 – 44 front step to runners lunge.
Push off of right foot back to standing –
I did all 44 with my right leg and then shared with my left!!
I did Fat Burning Pilates (very low impact) and then walked with a 9% incline for 3.25 miles.
Wednesday 9/3 – 44 pulsing lunges with foot on stability ball.
The hardest part of this was staying balanced and not toppling over!!!
Today was Turbo Jam – Ab Jam (this was a fun ab workout that I always forget about!) and 4.4 miles walking at 9% incline.
Thursday 9/4 – 44 stationary side lunges with one foot on a wobble disc.
I did all 44 to the right and then switched feet so I could do more!
I pulled out a DVD that I rarely do – Shape Pilates. I did all 4 of the 15 minute sections for a decent workout.
Friday 9/5 – 44 step-ups onto foot stool.
And, because I’ve been way more tired than normal this week, I actually slept till 6:00 instead of getting up to workout!
Saturday 9/6 – 44 single leg squats with opposite leg extension. (and because I’m super classy, I’m going to show you the pictures I took in my bathroom mirror after my shower)
These were hard – between staying balanced and trying to coordinate the move it was a nice little challenge!!! And, I don’t want my legs to feel left out of a move so I did another set of 44 on the left leg.
No running this week – I will probably do a couple super easy runs early next week and then hopefully be ready for Thursday!!!
