Workout Wednesdays - Week VI

Weekly recap, at least for myself, of what I actually accomplished or got done!

This happens to be on Wednesdays because 'Workout' starts with a "W" and I'm a sucker for alliteration. Guess that's what happens when your mom is an English major!

Also feel free to follow/friend me on The Daily Mile!

This Week in Workouts:

Thursday, January 12th -

Dark Night Run 5.51 mi 00:49 08:58 pace

Cold here in TX! Running gear did good, thank you bubble gum pink Nike hooded jacket :-D felt good to get in some exercise before Grey's Anatomy and girls' night!

I started with a Routine:

Workout Breakdown

Time: 12 Minutes  Workout Type: 12 Minute Interval Workout 
Bringing Sexy Back!
    Lisa-Marie’s Cardio Workout:
    Set your interval timer to 10/50 for 12 rounds. You need to complete the following 4 exercises 3 time through.
    Press up Burpee + Plyometric Jump (or squat/tuck jump)
    Star Single Toe Touch Abs
    Sit Squat & Jump using the Pink Sandbag
    Ugi Ball Mountiain Climbers x 10 & Ugi Ball Toe Touch’s x 10


    Holy Goodness!!! That knocked the Sparkles out of me... this stuff is serious.

    Also, can I say how cute Lisa-Marie's British accent is??

    Modification:  Since I don't have a huge weighted Sand bag I held two 5lb weights for that part.

    This SERIOUSLY brings your heart rate up quick! Then I started a second circuit -- "Turn Me On", but too many burpees for one day -- I only got through round one!

    Finished up with Treadmill 3 mi  00:26mi   //  08:33 pace
    Really pushed it.

    Saturday, January 14th -

    Super Speed because we had somewhere very important to be!

    I convinced Mike to try the routine with me -- we staggered the order of the circuit so that we wouldn't need the equipment at the same time and could just complete it in my apartment.

    He agreed that it got his heart rate up and those Press up Burpee + Plyometric Jumps were intense.

    My thighs are SCREAMING today.  They say we are no longer friends and I have the bruise to prove it...

    Nope, I didn't RUN INTO A WALL  thank you for asking, it just appeared and if you press on it you can feel a nice large knot.

    I decided the shiny red as the better of the two than the only change would be the inclusion of shines and I would therefore determine shines to be the interpreting feature and therefore my preferred shade."
