So glad it’s finally Friday! That means it’s time to talk fitness 🙂
Before we review my past week of workouts, I have a fun workout to share! I actually did it a couple of months ago but realized I never shared it with you guys! It’s perfect for next time you’re at a park that has a baseball diamond.
So, for Round 1 you would start at home plate, sprint to first base, do 20 skaters, sprint to second base, do 20 squat jumps, etc all the way around to home plate. Then go to the pitcher’s mound and do a plank. Return to home plate and start round 2!
Let me know if you try it out!
Now let’s review what I did this past week!
Friday: A late night walk with the boys!
Saturday: We cleaned the house all day, which was quite a workout…and then my new Fitfluential tanktop came in the mail so I headed out for a run to test it out! I ran 1 mile, walked 5 minutes and then ran another mile. I’m still focusing on gradually building my distance so I don’t re-injure my shin. It’s hard for me to only run every 3rd day and to not run too far at one time, but I know it’s important so I’m trying really hard!
My shoes are still feeling good and I’m loving my Zensah compression socks! The tank top is fun because on the lower back, when you sweat, the word #PROOF shows up! I tried to take a picture but it was too hard 🙂
Sunday: Volleyball day 🙂
Monday: We kicked off another week of bootcamp. This week we’re repeating all the workouts, but the focus is on holding at the point of contraction for several seconds. KILLER, especially on the squats!
I did the weights workout and put together a little 5 min cardio burst to go in-between each superset. I’m still trying to avoid jumping a lot, but this definitely elevated my heart rate and helped break up the weights. We also took the boys on a walk!
Tuesday: I had a busy day but I still managed to squeeze in workout B….I decided to post-pone the cardio portion until Wednesday, but I got the weights done, even if i WAS doing them at 11:30 pm 🙂 Plus I did 3 two minute planks! And then I collapsed into bed.
Wednesday: All I wanted to do was run…so I did!
I ran two consecutive miles which is the farthest I’ve run without stopping in about a month. I felt pretty good until the last .2 miles or so, when my shin started to ache a little. So I headed home to ice and stretch. My endurance has definitely decreased but I know it will come back! I also did some ab work.
Just what I needed after a long day 🙂
Anybody have any fun weekend plans?! I successfully survived orientation and I’ll be spending the weekend working on case studies and getting ready for my first rotation on Monday!
