Week 15 Recap


Sunday – Rest day.  Beach swim.

Monday – LB WO#4 plus TR #4 (200 swings), joint mobility, warm-up/cool-down.  60 minute restorative yoga class w/Kerri.

Tuesday – beach walk and swim.  Yogaglo class.  Tried a new instructor.  Was a good class with lots of standing asana work.

Wednesday – Took an additional active recovery day this week.  I’ll just adjust the schedule of workouts.  I simply did not have the energy to work out today.  Took a 90 minute yoga class w/Diane instead.  Several nights of insomnia plus the heavy workout Monday probably contributed to my weariness.  Felt a bit guilty for not following the program 100% but also want to make sure I ‘listen’ to my body don’t go into the ‘crazy’ zone.

Thursday – Lauren Brooks WO#5 (half kneeling press, stationary lunges, 1hs, high plank, 2hs) plus TR WO#1 (220 swings).  The 12kg bell is starting to be VERY comfortable for one hand swings and the 16kg is getting comfy for 2 handed swings.  🙂  Glad I took the extra day to recover because todays workout was good.

Friday – Rest Day.  Morning road walk with the kangaroos and horses.

Saturday – After a good warm-up and mobility work, I did 5/5 weight-less lunges and 3/3 TGU (naked to standing, 5kg to kneeling & 8kg to hand).  I was then on to LB WO #3 which was 30 seconds work/30 seconds rest (goblet squats-12k, C&P-8k, 2hs-16k, 30 sec plank, alt swings-12k, waiter walk-12k).  I did 3 sets.  Then I did my first 4 minute (20sec/10sec) tabata of 2hs & squat/thrusts.  WHAT A FRICKIN’ KILLER!  Finished up with another round of joint mobility work and a nice cool-down with extra yoga stretches.

Was hoping to have energy to do a yogaglo session today but seriously?  I’ve had enough.  I called it “GOOD”.  Seated mindfulness meditation and a nice supported savasana recharged me in anticipation for a party at the neighbors this evening.

So, that finishes up my 3rd week of Lauren Brooks Kettlebell woman program.  So far……EXCELLENT.  I really am enjoying it.  It certainly is pushing me but in a good, healthy sort of way.  I actually am enjoying the exercises and look forward to doing them.

It feels very strange to be in a ‘space’ where there are several types of activity that I enjoy and I really don’t have enough time to do them all.
