As I’ve gotten older I’ve gotten more set in my ways. However, I still like to try new things. This morning I tried to make a GIF following the incredible instructions that Taylor (Lifting Revolution) shared earlier this week. (I haven’t mastered it yet!!!)
I also like to try new moves and workout programs as often as possible!!! I have a super fun new program to try next week!
Sunday 8/10 – 44 leg crunches while balancing on wobble disc.
I did keep my hands on the ground the entire time – otherwise I didn’t feel like I could work my abs or hip flexors at all because I just kept falling off!
Monday 8/11 – 44 sit-ups with feet elevated.
These are always hard for me!!!
After lifting I ran.
8 miles in 59:20 followed by 0.35 to cool down (I was out of time!!!).
Tuesday 8/12 – 44 kneeling crunches.
This is one of those moves that isn’t big and you have to really focus on the crunch to feel it!!!
Another day of running – 10 miles in 76:54 followed by 1.8 easy miles.
Wednesday 8/13 – 44 alternating straight leg/arm dead bugs.
I tried to make this a fluid motion and not let my hands or feet touch the ground during the down part!! (Right leg extended, left leg extended = 1 rep)
Another day of lifting with Les Mills Body Pump – Pump & Shred. Not gonna lie – body pump always makes me sore and tired!!!
I wanted a little cardio but not a run so I did Turbo Jam – Cardio Party 2. Always a fun way to work out!!!
Thursday 8/14 – 44 extended plank with a wrist, elbow, shoulder touch. (Right hand touch left wrist, left hand to right wrist, right hand to left elbow…..for 1 rep!!!)
And, 11 miles of running in 81:25 followed by 0.4 miles easy.
Friday 8/15 – 44 carwash sweeps while in plank on elbow.
I tried to keep my body as level as possible while sweeping my arms around!! (a right sweep and left sweep = 1 rep)
I needed a little break from body pump so I did Jillian Michaels KickBox Fast Fix – love working out with Jillian!!!
Saturday 8/16 – 44 straight leg crunches with feet on a stability ball.
Today was another day of running (gotta keep my miles up a little longer!!!).
12 miles in 85:45 followed by 1.25 easy miles.
41 hard miles plus 3.8 easy miles for a close to 50 mile week. Probably need to bump that up next week but the whole time factor gets in my way!!
