Taking it Easy (3/8 – 3/14)

This week I took several days off because my legs were tired and I’m trying to rest some before next Saturday!

Sunday 3/8  45 sit-ups with my feet propped on the door.

After one side has been worked over, it’s time to switch and hit the other side.

I did Turbo Jam – Lower Body Jam & Ab Jam – both fun workouts!!

Tuesday 3/10  45 reverse lunge to warrior 3.

I love how many muscles are involved in these 2 moves.  And the balance challenge always makes me happy!!!

I did a 9 mile run in 68:35 followed by 1.2 easy miles.

Wednesday 3/11  45 crunches with a medicine ball toss (8 pound).

This was the start of taking a few days off since my legs felt tired.  I still ended up with almost 20,000 steps after a day of cleaning and setting up at the venue.

Thursday 3/12  45 bent over tricep pulses.

An easy move on another day off  (other than 8 hours on my feet while ironing table cloths).

Friday 3/13  45 pike and row on BOSU.  This move is another one that Nellie (Brooklyn Active Mama) shared in her Weekly Wednesday Workout.

Wrap the band around your foot a couple times – I also ended up choking up on the band to have enough resistance.

This was a fun move because it worked so many muscle groups and had an incredible balance challenge!!!

I really liked this move – and it was perfect since I had just finished my run!!!

(It’s been awhile since I did pictures with my shirt off but just keeping it real – back fat and all today!!!)

I did this move after running 5 miles – 36:54 followed by a nice easy mile.

4 days out of 7 off is a lot for me but I think it was time to rest!!!

Happy Saturday!
