It has been a week! Welcome back readers to my weekly fitness update. As mentioned in previous blog posts, that I will link here, I was completing a 15 day burpee challenge. This past week I completed day 9-15 and each day became harder and harder. On day 9 a had a 22 second rest between each set of burpees and by the 15th day, I was doing all 30 straight. It didn’t get easier like I was hoping for, but that just means it was a good challenge overall.
As for the other aspects of my workouts, I was able to get up early 4 days out of the week and get a good solid workout done before the kids were up. Heres the recap for the week:
- Saturday: Burpee challenge
- Sunday: Burpee and body weight exercises
- Monday: Burpee and treadmill run
- Tuesday: Burpee and Upper body lifting
- Wednesday: Burpee challenge only
- Thursday: Burpee and treadmill run
- Friday: Burpee and Upper body lifting
Overall, I’m very pleased with my workouts for the week. I want to push myself a little bit next week and extend my mileage. I’m heading out of town later this week for a wedding, so I want to make sure I get some strong workouts in before I leave. Upon my return I start the Quidditch event for two weeks where the goal will be to get as many intentional miles in during a workout. There are 8 teams against one another all raising money for charity! I’m running for Back on My Feet and you can check out the program here.
How did you tackle your fitness goals this week? Always remember to be confident, be fit, be you!
