Week 2 is half way through and it is NOT disappointing right now.
Yesterday we had our second AKAMighty team workout… and it was a mix of HIIT/Tabata/pain. We did 4 circuits – 3 times each:
Circuit 1 (x3):
- 30 second Heismans
- 30 second Burpees
- 30 second
Circuit 2 (x3):
- 15 rep Deadlifts (20 lbs)
- 15 rep fly’s (15 lbs)
- 15 rep chest presses (15 lbs)
Circuit 3 (x3):
- 30 second high knees
- 30 second 180 jumps
- 30 second bicycle crunches
Circuit 4 (x3):
- 15 side lunges (20lbs)
- 15 standing presses (15 lbs)
- 15 Russian Twists
It was the most intense, sweat filled hour and best way to start off the short week ever.
Since it is a short week, I’m cramming as many workouts as I can in, while still trying to manage some marathon training.
Here is what this week is planned out:
Monday: (was supposed to be 3 miles, but after 10 miles Sunday, and spending all night trying to get rid of a bat, it was an impromptu rest day)
Tuesday: AKAMighty team workout (Healthworks)
Wednesday: 45 Minute Spin Class and 60 Minute Barre Class – both at Healthworks (MY FIRST BARRE CLASS EVER – I’ll let you know how it goes!)
Thursday: 7am BURN Total Body workout (Healthworks)
Friday: 6am spinning class, 7am HW HIIT class (Healthworks)
Saturday: 12 mile run
Sunday: SLEEP FOREVER
So, maybe the Healthworks challenge just really woke up my competitive spirit… but I kinda love every single minute that I’m there, so, don’t judge. Yes, I know I have to get my miles in, but I’m also having a blast taking these classes. My 10 mile run on Sunday was a freaking dream, and part of me suspects that the cross training is really already working it’s magic.
I won’t do another weigh in until after the challenge is over, but I’m having a great time either way, and isn’t that really what it’s all about?!
