Tuesday~Treadmill 1 mile “tempo” intervals. I am not sure of my tempo this early in the game. I have not raced in a while. I just played it by ear.
2 Mile warm up : 15:51
mile 1 – 7:36
mile 2- 7:36 ( stopped 3 minutes in…vocal cord crap “flared up” awesome.)
mile 3- 7:36 ( stopped 2x here. I knew I would based on how crappy mile 2 was)
1.40 miles on the elliptical for my cool down. I was pretty much done with running.
Soooo, today did not go as planned. It happens. I tried my best to get over myself and my breathing. It’s weird and it stinks!
After my fiasco on the tread I decided I should cool down on the elliptical. I did about 15 minutes which equaled 1.4 miles. Good enough. I stretched a bit and called it a day….so I thought!
I taught Cardio Sculpt at 4:15 pm. It was a cardio circuit and 2-3 minutes of weights + core– 3x total. I decided to go back to the gym and lift weights:
I did the workout that I made my Totally Toned class do on Monday.
Hamstring Curls (25)
Double Crunch (25)
Inner Thigh squeezes (25)
Push ups (25)
weightless – 1 leg squats (12/per)
5 continuous sets
Bent over flyes(5)
Slow side kicks ( 12/per)
Standing leg lifts (12/per)
1 leg squat (12/per)
Repeat the Stability Ball exercises above + 25 more push ups!
Planks and lower back.
50 push ups later- I am sore! 🙂 It was good though. It did not take me that long to do either. I whipped right through it.
I was able to go to Andi’s Spin class too! I was not sure how to approach it, but after I warmed up a bit more I was able to really push myself through the ride. It was a fun class. Good music too 😉
Wednesday~I guess my excessive day of cardio was for a reason?? I have to take a day off today since the YMCA is closed do to the blizzard we had ( are having). We had about 13 inches of snow with crazy tall snow drifts up to 5 feet! The kids and I ( Matt too) are inside. I am the only one still in my pj’s. I might get dressed soon.. probably in my most comfy pj’s. Matt is going to venture out to get some movies at a RedBox. I foresee a lot of couch time today! Fine by me!
On tap for tomorrow: Run!
