Workout review

Monday, May 2nd - Boot camp with Stephanie
Mile run 7:18 - I didn't have my running buddy Mike who helps push me to under 7min. I was the lead runner...
32 push-ups in 2 min
5 min plank
Weights - 10lbs - Did lots of arm work and my arms are feeling it.

Tuesday, May 3rd - Bikram yoga! This class was really hard for me. I pushed myself and at the end I was exhausted and soaked.

Wednesday, May 4th - More boot camp
Mile run 6:57 - no Mike, but a husband/wife team was there. The husband is like 5min/mile runner and the wife was on my heels the whole time. It was great motivation! Thanks!!
36 push-up in 2min
5 min plank - think it is time to start increasing that time. The record is held by a middle schooler at 21+min. I had the record at 20+min. I want it back!!
3min of jumping jacks. I don't know about you ladies, but my bladder hates jumping jacks! Not fun.
We did lots of arm work with our weights (10lbs) to finish the class.

Thursday, May 5th - Running
I did 4.42miles in 35:59
Splits -
Mile 1 - 8:06
Mile 2 - 8:13
Mile 3 - 8:10
Mile 4 - 8:06
and the last 0.42 had a pace of 7:57
I guess I wasn't as tired as I thought! It was pretty windy, so this is great!

I then "coached" the beginning running group at work. Today's workout was -
3min walk
3min run easy
10 x (2min run, 1 min walk)
3min walk

We did 2.67 miles in 36:07.

Friday, May 6th - off day!



  1. I used to have the SAME problem with jumping jacks... unfortunately in Insanity the 'my bladder hates this' exercise is Scissor Runs..
