            AM-

            It’s been 8 days, and in the interest of Covid-19, I’m gonna give it the full 10 days at home. I feel pretty much fine, just weening off the cold meds now, and gradually increasing cardio again. Plan to hit the gym on Thurs, assuming the next 2 days are fine.

            Boo walk: 1 mile



            Noonish-
            Eliptical: 3 miles in 30 mins on random crossramp and mod high resistance—sweating from everywhere, but NOT coughing, and definitely got my heart rate up to near 130, so that’s cool.

            Daily Dare: 60 seconds reverse plank hold— done with EC




            Mid afternoon-

              AM-still no gym for another couple days.

              At home counting the birds on the lake and the eagles dive bombing them to single out a potential lunch

              Boo walk: <1 mile

              Noonish-

              NOTE: instead of separate kicks/punches for March, I am using jab/cross and speed bag punches as active rest between sets on full body stuff, and some form of kicks as active rest for upper body stuff

              Eliptical: 3 miles in 30 mins at random high crossramp and mod high resistance, HR 130

              (Subst for CORE &MORE class): Roll With It: a level 3 full body strength/tone, at level 1—3 sets of 10 roll ins, 10 push ups, 10 bridges, 20 crunches, 20 side crunches, 20 back extensions, 1 min rest, with 100 punches as active rest = 300 punches

              Boo walk: 1 mile

              WOD: Set to Stun, a level 3 difficulty full body high burn/streamline workout— at level 1, which is 3 sets of 20 high knees, 10 climbers, 10 shoulder taps, 20 high knees, 10 climbers, 10 plank jacks, 20 high knees, 10 climbers, 10 climber taps, active rest of 100 punches between sets= 300 punches

              Knee Push ups Challenge, Day 3: 5 knee push ups x 3 sets, 30 sec rest

              Side to side kicks: 25 reps x 3 sets, to go with the (knee push ups, an upper body exercise)

              Core Strength program, Day 3: at level 1 which is 3 sets of 20 side leg raises, right, 10 sitting twists, 20 side leg raises, left, 10 sitting twists, with a set of 100 sitting punches after each set as active rest= 300 sitting punches

              Bar work: The Kitten (modified)—straight hang to failure x 4 sets were just counted times of 25, 20, 15, 10 secs, then 2 mins of jump rope. —one arm hang to failure was *maybe* a second on each arm x 2 sets, then 2 mins of jump rope. — chin up hang to failure x 4 sets were a jump to the bar and hang x 10 secs with slow descent. Then, lifted myself to the bar from an 8inch step, hung for 5 secs then slowly lowered. Then lifted to the bar and lowered slowly TWO more times, followed by 60 front kicks. Then 10 hanging leg raises x 4 sets, were just scap pull/hanging knee raise combos x 4 sets

                I see that kicks and punches are appreciated as training, I'm having fun too

                Comment


                  Yeah, I didn’t want to drop them, and it seemed like rests between workout sets were “wasted time.” So, why not stick them into the workouts and see what comes out!I think I read Miss_Dada started this....? As a way to get more in? It works!!🥳😎

                    DorothyMH do you mean punching and kicking while ,,rest between sets,, ? Yes, it's a true I do this very often! It's much better to do a few punches in style you just feel like,then just to look around so I fill the time with challenges👍👍 2 in 1 killed then of course it depends on what exercise I just do, somewhere is that ,,rest,, really needed!! 👍🍀💫❤👊👊👊😈😈🔥🔥🔥😁

                        DorothyMH After 2 hours of lawn mowing, you were still able to do all that?! I'm impressed! Unless, of course, you were on one of those ride-on mowers, whereupon I take it all back!

                              I wish I had a rider sometimes: when I am woman-handling the heavy-motored push mower up and down the steps and terraces!😤😜But, alas, then I couldn’t post that I DID that!😅

                                Boo walk: 1 mile

                                Gym WEIGHTS class, yay!! New set sequencing today, for arms, abs and legs; used 40 lb barbell, 12, 10, & 5 lb dumbbells; some 1 minute cardio bursts thrown in


                                Noonish— corn gluten application to lawn for weed suppression and fertilizing

                                Nap!!!

                                WOD: The Cake is a Lie, level 3 difficulty cardio high burn/streamline— 3 sets of 40 half jacks, 20 squats, 40 climbers, 20 sit ups, 20 sitting twists, 40 flutter kicks, no rest, with 100 overhead punches after each set

                                Daily Dare: 20 hop heel clicks—done with EC, followed by 25 side to side kicks

                                Knee Push ups Challenge, Day 5: 6 knee push ups x 3 sets, 30 sec rest— no rest, but I followed each set with 25 side to side kicks= 75 kicks

Finally some progress!! I tried an extra one with no step (which is how I jump up to the bar) and I was able to jump/pull halfway up again, and still lower down slowly. So I am counting a half rep, there😅
