Change of plans today. I was all dressed and prepared to run ( notice I did not say ready!) when I got the call. Andi’s little girly was sick so we could not run. I was not happy that little L was sick, but I was not really feeling like running. I know I need to run and was going to and was going to have an awesome run might I add. 😉 I would have thanked Andi at the end for forcing me ( gun to my head) to run too. I quickly changed clothes and off to the gym I went with NO plan in mind. I ended up on the elliptical reading an old issue of Good Housekeeping. I meant to “borrow” it, but I forgot and turned it back in. I ended up dong a very easy 30 minute routine… I did the program “Variety- Gluteal 2”. I did not push myself much and I feel just fine with that decision. After that I was not sure what to do. I grabbed a jump rope and found myself on the upper deck of the pool (re: pretty much a sauna type environment) ready to do something. Here is the break down: 3 sets. 60 seconds. 90 second recovery between sets.
Bosu plank up-downs/plank hold
Walk out push ups
Plank hip drops/plank opposite arm/leg lift
After this I did about 100 “crunch” type exercises. I loathe ab work. So this was hard but good for me.
ab crunches on the ball (10)
+ a weight (10)
ab crunches on the floor (10)
+ a weight (10)
bicycle crunches (20)
2 sets of this nonsense 😉
The equipment I used today was:
A jump rope
Step bench with risers
The whole circuit took me about 25 minutes or so give or take. One of my goals ( I finally made one) is to do this type of short, but tough workout once a week.
I am done with exercise for the day. Amara and Miles ( if Matt approves!! ) will have their first dance class tonight! Amara will be way excited. Miles – you never know with that kid! He loves to dance, but I am not sure about an organized class. We shall see!
On tap for tomorrow:
Spin instruction and weight training.
