Wednesdays have turned into my cross-training days. Taking a day off from running after a speed day feels pretty nice:) I did 40 minutes of the stairclimber and elliptical and then a quick 20 minute strength workout of simple/basic moves. I tend to stick to the basics with my strength training.
Do each of the five moves for 60 seconds before moving to the next—> Repeat 4 times = 20 minutes.
1. Upright rows.
2. One-legged squats (my balance struggles).
3. Bicep curls.
4. Elbow to hands plank. PS HERE is a list of 47 awesome plank variations!
5. Military press.
Leftovers just make life so good. Taco salad with a quesadilla. PS for those of you that asked about the chicken recipe from last night—> I just throw chicken, taco seasoning and a bunch of salsa in the crockpot, cook it on low for 6-8 hours and then shred it.
While I was putting lunch together I found Brooke just chilaxin, coloring and wearing one running shoe.
Still seeing Dr. Bennett (801-513-1078) once a week and loving it. We are continuing to work on getting everything working right and my body all fixed up. Basically, each week we are stabilizing 2 different areas and fixing them (this helps so much so that I no longer overcompensate with the wrong muscles/joints). As soon as we stabilize one area and get them to work properly it is common for different weaknesses to manifest themselves and then we work on stabilizing those areas the following week. Fixing one layer at a time. Pretty awesome.
Today we worked on my lower back and hamstrings. It is crazy how much better I feel as I am leaving these appointments. I am hooked.
And four random things for ya:
1. Me and my sister’s favorite snack lately: sweet potato topped with mango salsa.
2. Erica asked me this highly important question and the answer is no.
I still love them but I don’t even remember the last time I had swedish fish. Donuts, cookies and chocolate are taking over the special place that was once reserved for fruity candy. The older I get, the more chocolate I want but I do still love sour candy a lot.
3. Saved by the Bell movie? I don’t know how I feel about this. I loved Saved by the Bell when I was growing up.
Some of your favorite shows when you were growing up?
-Boy Meets World, Power Rangers, Even Stevens, Saved by the Bell and Lizzie Mcguire.
Favorite snack lately?
Do you have a specific day that you cross-train or do you play it by ear?
