So after 5 days of life-imposed rest I came back with a full tank of gas!
Day 1 Core Core Core! 07/19/10:
I completed my core workout cycle of set reps, 3 exercises x 6 rounds x 3 times (usually I only do 2x!) so I added 1/3 more to today's workout AND I set my PB to date in the time challenge both in the 2nd AND 3rd round. I also added a new exercise which is killer for the hip flexors, core and back, completing 2 sets of 25 reps. Add to that 6 full cycles of sun salutations and I STILL had gas in the can. Mentally I wanted to hit the stationary cycle but my body put itself to bed around 9PM (haha). I guess I was tired after all!
Day 2 20:10's x 8 rounds x 5 exercises and I set PB's for maximum reps in every exercise! My RPE was high around 16-18 but I got through it! I was determined to log those scores and I was confident I would set PB's.
Tomorrow I have a running session with a client so I am planning a dedicated cardio day. It will give me the motivation to set up the stationary bike again, as I had torn it down for Jenny's birthday to make room. After all, I leave it set up in my dining room (haha) Tomorrow's workout sounds EASY compared to today! Already I have Core #2 planned for Day 4 so I am thinking ahead!
