Day 13 and I am really feeling it from that Barefoot Fusion Sculpt. Who would have thought it – a very sneaky one. As Jessica used lighter weights I dropped to my 1.5kg weights and I can still really feel it – I think it was those triceps kickbacks where you had to pulse.
Today I’ve done the recommended Cardio Strength Step circuit. The boys have a low step from when they bought Wii Fit years ago, so I used that. It was a great workout and really tough. I will really feel that tomorrow. When Jessica finished with a superset I couldn’t actually hold the weights towards the end which seemed crazy as our elbows were resting on the floor! Great when she pointed out a lizard on the window (when I’m abroad I get very excited about the different wildlife, and was very taken with the lizards when I was in Florida!!) I partnered it with the Under the Weather Stretch. Tonight is a New Year Buffet. I don’t think I will eat very much but I understand it is going to have a healthy theme anyway. Thanks for recommending the Interval Cardio and Core Jackie, I would like to try that one. Maybe I will cycle back through this challenge when it finishes, although I think Jessica may have something else planned for “Fusion February”. Have a good weekend everyone!
Day 13 (but day 12 for the workouts). I did Metabolic Conditioning from WS3 and I enjoyed it a lot. That was enough strength for today as I could still feel my triceps and abs from Wednesday’s routines and I wanted to give them an opportunity to fully recover so, I partnered that with Cardio Party from WS1 which I didn’t get to do earlier in the week. This routine is always a joyful way to get steps in and have fun with the rainbow of ladies from the community. Jacy, Maureen and Mholdsworth you were also with me. It was rather a tight squeeze in my living room.
This afternoon I left my desk and went for a massage, manicure and pedicure. Absolutely wonderful! I am not going to do any yoga or stretching because I feel great after 90minutes of Thai Massage. She got into those knots and really stretched me out. The masseuse was Thai and gave me a lovely compliment saying that I was strong and fit isn’t that so kind? I am getting a kind of massage from Cally on my lap….
Looking forward to Day 14 (and Day 13 routines) tomorrow. It’s going to be a very early night after my meditation tonight.
Day 11 and I planned just to squeeze in the recommended 20 min Barefoot Fusion Sculpt around 9pm. I just couldn’t face it, I was so tired after work. Sometimes I think to force a workout when you’re really tired is pointless as you just end up not keeping good form. So, decided to combine Day 11 & 12 today. Glad I did as that Barefoot Sculpt was more challenging than I was expecting! Coupled it with the recommended Interval Mix from Walkstrong 1 (couldn’t miss it as this is my favourite workout from Walkstrong 1!!) Tonight I’ve done the bonus Short and Sweet stretch. Glad it was short and sweet! Oh that low frog squat at the end did not look good on me!
Day 12 and I have taken today as my active rest day for this week. I had a little time before I left the house this morning so did the Bonus Add On For Day 14: 12 minute under the weather routine. It was a nice short routine just to get moving and it was a good warm up for this fast hike today too.
The hike was wonderful. A small group of mostly trail runners doing a recce for the Translantau Race. I didn’t run as the trail (section) we did today is slippery and still damaged from the typhoon in October. There still needs to be some trail cleanup if there is going to be a major race I think. It was beautiful though and I always love it. I might lead a few hikes on this section once I get back from the U.K. as the more people who walk a trail the more established it will be again.
I got home and after a long shower ( it has been hot today) I did the second recommendation for Day 14 which 30 minute Yoga For Back Pain Prevention from the Gentle Yoga For Back Pain and Prevention download. I had forgotten how much I like this routine and it has really helped stretch my muscles both from two lots of sneaky strength training yesterday and from the hiking today. I feel wonderful. I know I should put an hour in at my desktop before dinner but I actually think I might sit in the garden for a short while and just deal with emails this afternoon. There is tomorrow for the other stuff. I also posted a couple of hikes for next week as there isn’t much on the calendar and it has been a while since I hosted a hike. Fingers crossed there is interest!
