It’s been a longgg Sunday. That is what happens when you naturally wake up before 7:00am and do work… by work, I mean plow through to-do lists. I shouldn’t be complaining though; what crazy person actually wants Monday to come sooner?
I titled this week’s workout recap “Steppin’ It Up” for two reasons: 1) I did step-ups three separate times, and 2) I kind of felt like I “stepped it up” this week because I didn’t take any sit-on-my-butt-all-day rest days.
None of my workouts this week were more than an hour; I anticipated a long run today, but my body was not up for it. Although my workouts were short ‘n’ sweet, I was awfully sore most of the week… especially my abs! The Power Plyo workout is killer, and side dips with a 25lb. kettlebell are evil the next morning.
Workouts | Week of April 28
Monday – 2.25 mile run + 10 sandbag squats / 10 sandbag lunges / 10 jump squats / 10 jump lunges (3x) + 5-Minute Workout That Will Kick Your Butt (2x)
dumb idea to try to use my 35lb. sandbag after Sunday’s 35-mile ride
Tuesday – 55 min. walk + 75 step-ups (active rest day)
Wednesday – Power Plyo Tabata Workout (with a couple modifications)
Thursday – 20 minute run (91F!) + 50 step-ups
two appointments after work = crunched for time!
Friday – Total Body Dumbbell Superset Workout (with 5-minute plank variation)
Saturday – Kettlebell & Dumbbell Workout (12 reps instead of 10) + 40 no push-up burpees
Sunday – 30 min. run + 75 step-ups
step-ups = a homemade “ploy box” using the cement block wall in my neighborhood (see photo below)
I hope you had a wonderful (active?) weekend!
