Yesterday was such a great and energizing day! I spent it with some absolutely amazing people. We went through some coach training and then had a couple fitness challenges. These challenges were definitely challenges for me. One of my weaknesses is upper body strength and wouldn’t you know, the challenges both had upper body emphasis – Punching Planks and Suicide Bur-pees. Super Fun! The women ruled the day on the Punching Planks. Two of my close friends were in the Top 3 Julie Brinkman-Petree and Gina Anderson Wood with Gina taking the top performance. Storm – 15 year old Phenom Son of another close friend Lynn Kinkade, took a close Second. The Suicide Bur-Pees were closer to my wheel house. The push-ups ended up being my downfall. I made it into the Top 3 with Storm (who took Second again) and Zak Brown (another close friend who took first and seems to regularly defy gravity)! It came down to a sudden death – How many can you do in a minute? I did 15 with the push-ups slowing me down. Zak and Storm both were in the 20’s – Great job guys!
So then I get home and since it was a Rest Day I got to get in some swimming and cycling. I swam for 15 minutes which consisted of 5 minutes using slow and deliberate strokes to stretch out and then 10 solid minutes of maximizing my range of motion in the stroke with constant building intensity. I love my BowSwim! I am learning more and more about how to use it to train my stroke and strength in the water. Here is a link to a video I made which demonstrates it’s use. Fityak uses the BowSwim Then I jumped on my EVOcx and popped in my TriCore DVD and did Workout #7 which includes a Warm Up, Swaying, Hill Set Sprints, and Hovering Drills while riding 8 Miles in 25 minutes.
As you can imagine, I burned a few calories. So if you look at my Dinner and After Dinner Snack (I didn’t make the best choices) I was just looking for calories wherever they happened to be in my fridge. I am going to start eating better. Just cleaning out the fridge so to speak ~ look for my nutrition to get better over this next month!
