Good Morning and Happy Monday all!
I’ve never been so happy for a Monday. . . and really I’m just excited because that means my boy comes back tomorrow and is done with his 4 weeks of crazy traveling.
I made it! Although it was touch and go for a bit there when the Lifetime Movies starting slipping in. Scary.
I went through my travel WODS last night with a goal of picking out a WOD that would be long and challenging enough to cash me on it’s own.
Talk about success.
This mornings WOD including
- 10 minutes running warm up
- 100 push ups
- 200 sit ups
- 300 squats
- 5 minutes running
All for time.
I’m going to be honest, I was a little concerned I would not be doing this one as prescribed. Talk about biting off a bit more than I could chew…But I woke up this morning well rested (thank you time change) and confident that I was going to give it all I had.
The 10 minute warm up was easy and just enough to get the blood pumping and my body warm in a cold gym.
I started the second series (push ups, sit ups and squats) by doing 30 of each exercise. My thoughts were I would get a chunk out of the way, then divide it into smaller bunches.
I then did sets of 20 of each exercise in the series, until I had only 10 left for push ups. I was really impressed that I never dropped to my knees or really broke form. The push ups were what I was most concerned about.
Then when I got to only sit ups and squats left, I started doing 20 sit ups, and 2 sets of 20 squats so that the two would end together.
When I finished, I’d never been so happy to jump on the treadmill. I really don’t know what was most challenging, it all was. But I finished feeling like I had gotten a great, full body work out in for the day.
I am LOVING these WODS!
Workout Plan For the Week
- Monday: Full body WOD
- Tuesday: 3.5 miles, speed work
- Wednesday: Full body WOD or cross training on the bike
- Thursday: 3.5 miles, outdoors or speedwork
- Friday: YOGA/REST
- Saturday: Short run and skiing (likely)
- Sunday: 5 miles and short bike ride
Now that we are into ski season, my schedule, specifically for the weekends, is going to have to be a little more flexible. Zach is QUITE the powder hound, and will go to the mountain at the sight of even a single snow flake (You know it’s true babe)…so I have to be able to move things around accordingly. He puts up with my running craziness all the other 3 seasons, so he’s earned it).
That’s it, that’s my plan all.
