Training: Jan 25, 2011

Jan 24, 2011

I have a confession to make. I didn't do any training yesterday. In fact, I did the opposite and ate a bunch of stuff I shouldn't have (cake, brownies, cookies, etc.) haha. Whoopsie!

I'm happy to say, though, that I'm back on track!

Jan 25, 2011

Coach's challenges:
60 minutes of cardio maintaining a heart rate of 160-180
Look into workouts that can target quads, abductors, and core
Weight: 133 lbs (nearly two pounds lower than Jan 21!)

Todays goals:
Complete 60 minutes on my elliptical and maintain a heart rate of 170 or higher
50 sit-ups
50 side sit-ups on each side
50 sit-ups with legs up
50 push-ups (even if I can't get down the whole way haha)
Plank for one minute
End with three yoga moves good for keeping hips and thigh muscles loose

Setting: Cross-training
Time: 60 minutes
Distance: 5.13
Calories: 514.3
Strides: 7038
Heart rate: 173 for first 45 minutes, 169/170 for last 15 minutes

I almost reached all my goals. I pushed hard to maintain a heart rate above 170. At 45 minutes I felt faint so I stopped for about 5 minutes and grabbed a banana, graham crackers and extra water. I started back up again and was able to get my hr back up to 170, though it floated around a bit above and a bit below for that last 15 minutes.
The muscular stuff was fine, though I didn't really feel challenged by it. I did 5 reps of 10 for each target area and allowed about 10 seconds between each rep. I only did 40 push-ups though.
I've been looking into other exercises to incorporate as Chris requested. I'll put those in tomorrow!
I'm feeling really great tonight and my knee hasn't bothered me much at all.

  1. Now I'd understand falling off the wagon if it involved Red Velvet OR a protein style cheeseburger from IN and Out.... But since neither of those items is on this list-I think you should refrain from cheating. =)

    Love you, and so proud of the work you're doing. <3
