This week’s 44s were all about using this little band –
Since I was in Texas for the first part of the week, this was a perfect tool to use! And, all of my pictures were taken either Thursday or Friday morning after I was home – I did the moves on the actual day though!!!
Sunday 4/27 –44 bicep curl with a lunge (hold the other end of the band up over shoulder for extra resistance.
And, of course, I had to do a 2nd set of 44 with my left side.
I also did Turbo Fire Tone 30 which is 30 minutes of full body toning using bands.
Monday 4/28 – 44 tricep kickbacks in plank.
These were challenging – to try and keep my body straight, hold plank with one arm and do 44 kickbacks with resistance!!! And, I had to do a 2nd set!!!
I did TaeBo Fat Blasting Cardio (another portable workout!!) and a nice easy 30 minute run (probably only 3 miles).
Tuesday 4/29 – 44 lateral raise with opposite side leg lift.
I love moves that work on balance!!! And, I try to stay balanced so I had another set of 44.
The rest of my workout was TaeBo Insane Abs (50 minutes of nonstop core work!) and a super easy 50 minute run (about 5 miles).
Wednesday 4/30 – 44 abdominal presses with the band.
This move will definitely get your core burning!!!
I just did a 75 minute easy run (7.5-8 miles).
Thursday 5/1 – 44 squat with bicep curl (band crossed for extra resistance).
Can you tell that I was all about multi-functional exercises for the week?
Since I was back home on my treadmill I decided to do a harder run – 10 miles in 79:54 + 1.5 miles easy.
Friday 5/2 – 44 overhead press with opposite leg stepping back to a lunge.
Another move that required a 2nd set!!!
This move was hard – gotta keep working my shoulders!!!
It was also a run day – 6 miles in 47:52 + 2.5 easy miles.
Saturday 5/3 – 44 sumo squat with a chest fly (standing).
Right arm done – time for the left!
Today was a fun running day – Hunter’s long run! He had 95 minutes on the schedule. We kept our 5 minute run/1 minute walk and ended up with 10 miles in 93:40!!! Even with the walking he is still averaging 9:22 a mile (the same pace he had last week when we did 9 miles!!). He is doing such a great job with his training for the half marathon!
Total Running – 41.5 + 4.5 easy for a total of 46. Not sure that is great since one week from today I plan to run further at one time than I went all week – I think I’m ready though!
