Now on to my week in workouts!
Ended up going for a 3 mile run, then finished with an hour yoga session. I worked on my favorite arm balances and then worked on my breathing to try and clear my head. But what I REALLY need to work on are my hip openers and hamstring stretches.
Definitely making note of this for next week.
I did a fun garage WOD that I've done before but never shared here. It's one of my absolute favorites because it strengthens the full body but also gets the heart pumping. And I get to jump rope!
Jump roping always makes me feel like a kid again, even though I have a kid, another one on the way, a husband, and a mortgage.
Hey, whatever keeps you young, right?
Another strength training session for the books. And of course, it consisted of my favorite hunks of metal, kettlebells. Happy dance!
Just a friendly suggestion, if you like kettle bells, try this workout. You're welcome.
A personal trainer friend of mine challenged me to try out one of his strength workouts. Challenge accepted!
Here's the plan I was given:
However, I ended up doing deadlifts because I have horrible memory and my mind somehow read "dead clean and press" as deadlifts. Blame it on my pregnancy brain, haha.
And because I don't exactly know how much I weigh right now, I guesstimated my weight to be around 140 and ended up doing 95lb deadlifts.
It was a super fun workout and I'm glad I finished. Not going to lie though, my legs are pretty shaky from those jump squats, ouch, ouch, ouch!
Because I did 3 full body workouts in a row, I think it's time for me to get my cardio on and go for a run. My goal for today is 3 miles but to sprint all the hills. I'm also hoping to get this run in without pushing 40lbs of baby and monster stroller.
Nudge, nudge, wink, wink to my hunk ;)
This weekend I have a lot of girl time planned, we have a fun photoshoot, and a cookie exchange with the ladies I volunteer with for my husbands unit. So I'm not too worried about working out this weekend. I do have yoga Saturday morning but I think we'll take it easy the rest of the time and enjoy our time away from anything Army related together. Sounds like a perfect, relaxing weekend to me!
Anyone else have something exciting planned for the weekend? Whatever it is, I hope you all enjoy it! Yay FRIDAY! And yay COOKIES!
