Today for my 43 I did a modified version of last week’s failed attempt at wall climbs. I did push-ups with my feet on the wall and my body making a 90 degree angle (sort-of!). This move is one that I got from Amanda @ RunToTheFinish. She has this really cool Wallbanger Workout and this is one of the moves she did in it.
Here is a failed attempt at making a demo! This was after I had already complete my 43 and my arms were toast!!
Next attempt – a tiny bit better and as good as it’s gonna get!
I think that 8 was the most reps I did at a time. I had to keep resetting my feet on the wall – I’m still counting it because I did all 43 reps, just with a few short reset breaks!!!
Today was another episode of Garage Boot Camp – it is usually so much hotter and stickier when we work out in the garage than when we are outside (no breeze!!!). Oh well, a
little bucket of sweat isn’t a bad thing!!! This morning actually wasn’t as sticky as last week – a little on the cool side – pretty nice workout conditions.
I tried a new workout today – it is loosely based on a workout from Taylor @ Lifting Revolution – the Puma Pounce workout. I made some changes to turn it into a 45 minute boot camp that I felt like my group of boot campers could handle!!!
We did a 25 Rep/Minute Workout. Fun times – the faster you complete the reps, the more rest you get (whatever is left in the minute) before starting the next move!! I had a series of 8 moves (8 total minutes) and we went did 3 rounds.
Do you love or hate spiders?
Last night we actually had a spider outside our kitchen slider that was in the process of spinning her web. I wanted to video the process without the glare from the glass so I tried to go outside without disrupting her. Didn’t work very well!
The spider felt the movement of the door on her web and stopped working. I took a short video but she didn’t move at all during that time (mostly my video is just of Hunter on the inside telling me to leave her alone!) and as soon as I opened the door again to go in, she climbed all the way to the top of her web.
Watching the spider react to an interruption in her work made me think about how I deal with little interruptions. Sometimes I react just like the spider – I leave my work and run into a corner and refuse to continue until all of the distractions are gone.
I need to learn to deal with the distraction in a timely way and then carry on with my work no matter how many minor interruptions I encounter along the way.
Are you like a spider or can you work through any type of interruption?
Happy Tuesday!! (even though it feels like Monday to me!)
