This was a pretty boring, uneventful week. Kind of a slow week with my workouts, which was good, apparently I needed the rest.
Labor Day – so I did the opposite of Labor Day and I rested. 🙂
Work was really rough. One of those days. You know the kind. I was pretty much in my “I hate everything” mode when I got to the gym. Danny night. I was hoping my ankle wouldn’t give me too much trouble. Seemed to be ok.
First Round (2x):
1. 10 Power Rangers (each side) with resistance band
2. 10 kneeling row/press (each side) with resistance band
Second Round (3x):
1. 2o goblet squat jumps
2. 20 squat and hold KB front press
3. 10 kneeling to standing reverse grip KB press
Wednesday AM: Due to my ankle issue, I decided to scratch my run and just rest it up one more day.
Wednesday PM: Vinyasa yoga. This was my first yoga class without Sue as my instructor. I’m not really a fan of Jaye’s style. I’m not even entirely sure you could call this a vinyasa class. It seemed all over the place. And she doesn’t cue very well, which is really frustrating.
And oh my goodness, I guess yoga stretched my foot out or something, the arch of my foot started cramping up and rolling it out on a tennis ball barely made a dent in the pain.
Woke up Thursday morning to a still very cramped up and upset right foot. I’m gonna guess the culprit is a mix of yoga and the fact that maybe my foot/ankle are more angry at me than I thought from my little spill this past weekend.
One Round (3x):
1. 10 Turkish Get-ups (each side) 8 lb KB
2. 30 second saw plank with TRX
3. 100m goblet hold farmers carry (25 lbs)
Friday AM: Had an early work meeting, so no workout this morning.
Friday PM: After the insane week I had at work….I just wanted to CRASH.
Danny. I didn’t sleep well Friday night and this workout kicked my butt.
We did 4 rounds of the following with double KBs (8 lbs each):
1. 10 single leg KB rows (each side)
2. 10 KB split squats (each side)
3. 10 (?) KB high-pull and squat
4. 1 minute jump rope
Then I went home and had to do yard work since I’ve been neglecting it. It was HOT on Saturday – I was sweating so bad my sunglasses were filling with sweat when I bent over! Not fun. After that, I came in and did all the housework I’d been neglecting: 2 loads of laundry, dusting, vacuuming, sweeping, cleaning bathrooms, cleaning the kitchen, etc. It was quite a productive day!
Church in the morning, even though we only missed a week, it felt like an eternity. Then Michael, Michael’s brother and I headed down to Elizabeth City to see his parents. Did my grocery shopping then watched a million episodes of Naked and Afraid. I decided that I’d never make it on that show. I’d tap out on day one!
How were your workouts this week? Have you ever watched Naked and Afraid?
