Week 6

I improved on Week 5 by getting 2 workouts in last week.  

Workout 1: jogging outside thanks to the arrival of a wheel that turns my bike trailer into a jogging stroller!  While it's not the easiest thing to maneuver, it does amp up the jobg (added weight while going uphill along with an arm workout when trying to make turns).

According to Google Maps, the jog was about 0.8 mi, and it took about 20 mins, which was just enough time to try out my jogging legs and lungs.

Workout 2 (the next day): P90X legs & back

I spent the next three days or so hobbling around the house as my legs recovered.  Ouch.

Week 5, otherwise known as one step forward, two steps back

Last week, I ate Valentine's chocolates and exercised very little.  Only 1 P90X workout - arms & shoulders.

Oh well.  If at first you don't succeed, try, try again.

Bob Harper Pure Burn Super Strength DVD

I did both the 60 min. section and the 20 min. section, though it was really more like 72 min. all put together (there's stretching on either end).

And, may I say: Ow.

Week 4 - Getting Better

M: Kenpo
T: Chest & Back (my least favorite P90X workout)
W: Plyometrics
Th: Nothing
F: Most of the arms & shoulders workout.

Also, we just received the wheel that will convert our bike trailer into a jogging stroller, which means that we can now take advantage of the spring weather we've been having and move our cardio training OUTDOORS.  Can't wait!

Week 3

Last week was a bust for me.  I had a change to my schedule and only worked out twice - P90X legs & back & P90X Kenpo.  I felt pretty blah by the weekend and blame the lack of exercise.  This week is going much better; I'll post my update soon.

After yesterday's workout-pa-looza, I just wanted something quick and basic. Hence: 30 Day Shred, Level 1.

C25K, week 1, workout 1 (again)

Did the first workout of the first week of Couch-to-5K again, this time with Adam. Wasn't expecting to get to work out twice in one day, but it was fun!


stationary bike

No exercise last week because I came down with the flu (fever and chills and everything!). But today I did 40 minutes on the stationary bike.
