C25K, Week 7, Workouts 2 & 3

Workout 2 was on Friday, and workout 3 today. Both workouts were just running for 25 minutes, but, oh, today's suuuuuuuuuuuuucked.

I think it was the shoes. I was wearing shoes and socks, instead of my Vibrams, and it took me a couple laps to realize why I was feeling so lousy. But my feet were hot, my legs felt like lead, and my knees (both of them!) ached the entire time. And my feet ached. And my toe went numb. Ugh. Not doing that again. Nope. Vibrams for me!

The only thing that kept me going was the thought that I'd completed every workout in this program so far, and I wasn't going to stop now!  Adam told me today, "Hey, guess what? This is the last time we have to run for 25 minutes!" and I said, "'Cause next time we're running for 28 minutes?" and he said, "Yep!" :D

Killer Buns and Thighs, Level 1

I'd forgotten that this has some fun martial arts stuff at the end. Love the kicking exercises!

Weeks 13 & 14

Both weeks, I did the P90X chest, shoulders & triceps workout.  This one is challenging but fun.  It includes one armed push ups, clap push ups, slow push ups, fast push ups (you get the idea) and weights.

I also got a walk/jog in both weeks.

The end of the semester is almost here, which means that some of the energy that I am currently putting into grading can soon be shifted into exercise. Yay!

C25K: Week 6, Workout 3

Which was a walking warm-up, 22 minutes of running (I think I was doing about a 9.5 min. mile), and then a walking cool-down.

Killer Buns and Thighs

Did Level 3 today. I'm getting close to finishing my quest to do every level in all of my circuit training DVD's.

C25K: Week 6, Workout 2

This was a repeat, as being sick all Spring Break threw (I almost wrote "through") us off our running schedule.

Jillian Michaels' Killer Buns and Thighs

Did Level II of this today. Had forgotten the awful, terrible, no-good star jumps at the very end. Ugh.

But good to be working out again! It's been a crazy week.

short Bob Harper workouts

Well, we were sick all through Bright Week (I know, right?), so I'm just back to working out today.

To get back into the swing of things, I did three of the short workouts that Bob Harper tends to stick on the end of his hour-long DVDs. So, I did the short workouts from his Yoga DVD, his Core DVD and his Cardio DVD.

I think it was about 40 minutes of exercise in all.

Week 12

A whole lotta nothing!

But the weather has been beautiful, and I'm looking forward to getting outside again.

Weeks 10 & 11

My memory is a little fuzzy because I have had a lot going on lately, but Weeks 10 & 11 went something like this:

Week 10:
Walk/jog ???? - not sure if this happened, or if I'm imagining it.

Week 11:

And then Easter happened, and physical fitness and diet went by the wayside . . . temporarily.
