Still doing the push ups *switching up styles* and cardio. However, today, I made the mistake of telling someone in my guild at the so cal ren faire of my workout plans. Now they're going to turn my weekend workouts into a gig on the street. Which means I get to do my sad push ups on the road in front of God and Country. I should know better by now. Never tell other Faire participants of your plans. They will be turned into a public performance.

I just went sort of plain today: half a mile of warm up alternating between walking and running and then basic circuit, weight lifting machines.

Ran about 4ks yesterday, on top of 600m of quadrupedal motion, plus vaults and rolls.

Oh and tree climbing. https://m.ak.fbcdn.net/sphotos-g.ak/...73514836_n.jpg

I took Friday, Saturday and Sunday off...though I walked around the zoo a lot on Sunday and around Downtown Portland Saturday so I got some sort of a workout in. My legs were so sore from all the running the past week and I figured working out 6 days in a row was enough

But I started up again yesterday. I ran 2 miles in 16.5 minutes adding my total to 11.75 miles
Squats 3x5: 205, 215, 225
Dead lifts 3x5: 135, 135, 135
Pull ups 3x5: 111, 117, 117
Back extensions 3x15 with 10 lbs extra
leg press 3x5: 280, 280, 280
Hip Adduction 3x8: 190, 205, 205
lat pull down 3x8: 75, 75, 75
Rows 3x8: 90, 90, 90

Workout time: 45 minutes

Woo 3.75 miles in 35.25 minutes! My total mile count so far is 15.5 miles. I am well on track to make it to 50 miles. I am only 9 days in. I workout roughly 6 days a week so I would have to run 1.9 miles each of my workout days to reach 50 miles by the 21st.

Today my personal trainer did something cute. She started naming our workouts after superheroes.

Today we did the Batman Push Up, something I think a few of you will enjoy.

Start in a plank position. Have your legs spread apart for a stable base. While keeping your core tights, tap your chest (or Batsymbol) with a hand. Be sure to alternate hands, and to not rock your back/body. This works your core and it also helps with balance and coordination!

I had a really bad week for working out this past week, so I'm just getting back into doing stuff again.
So I found out about Blogilates/Pop Pilates and I've seen a lot of positive results, so I've started that this morning and I'm going to get back into my cardio later today. I'm still determined to run the Color Run in August, so no slacking for me!

Squatting/deadlifting in them is glorious.

Started doing front squats, they have a better carry-over to my vert jump.

Front squat.
3x5 @ 65kg

OHP
3x7 @ 40kg

Bodyweight Rows:

3x10

Facepulls:

Beautiful rehab excercise.

3x15 @35kg


And as of last week, deadlifting well more than twice my bodyweight.

I'm a beachbody nut. I can't help it...the programs helped me lose 65 pounds so I'm crazy passionate about them.

I'm doing Les Mills Pump right now so today was a "walk for 45mins" day. But...I'm not finding the walk days challenging enough so I subbed p90x Kenpo X...which always kicks my butt.

450 calories burned!!!

Love it!

Today was a rest day for me. Which I look forward to and hate all at the same time. I know it is important to let my body rest and recover...a lot of the work is done on rest days, I just feel lazy. *sigh* back to it tomorrow!
