Yesterday started with me riding the bike over to the Lifestyle Fitness, which is a good 5 mile bike ride from my house. And by know I guess you know when I exercises I don’t often do it half hearted, especially not after my own disappointment from Tuesday (which turned out to be harder than what I thought it was because my legs were a bit sore) so by the time I arrived I still had a good 15 minutes to carry on walking on an incline on the treadmill before Jonathan put us through some serious work.
I don’t know why but for some reason I thought we were doing total body this week but I was so wrong and when I saw the hurdles I knew I was in trouble:). We were split into two groups, me and mrsT started with 30 power steps switching in midair while the other person was doing high jumps over the hurdles 3 times through.
Meanwhile the other group was doing 15 weighted squats and 20 lunges to press before we took a 30 seconds break and started from the top again.
We did not do many circuits this particular morning but they were intense as we worked both the quads and the hamstrings. The next circuit we did 4 times but with two different variations. Fist we did 10 single leg Romanian deadlifts and at the last one we popped back into a lunge and pumped out another 10 before we swapped leg. The last exercise was a 20 lunges to the side with one 15 pound dumbbell almost touching the floor when reaching the dumbbell to the outside of the bent leg.
The next variation was a regular 15 deadlift followed by 20 jumping lunges and 1 minute wall sit.
The thing is with Jonathan is that the hour is not over until he says so and with about 10 minutes left on his watch we went outside and did sprints. We combined this with skipping rope before I threw myself on my bike and peddled as fast as I could on my bike the 6 miles to Mira’s school and believe it or not I was actually on time!
I am not lying when it was with much hesitation I decided to go for a run up in the woods this morning but I did it even though I thought my legs were about to fall off along the way…lol
