Wednesday night and I’d been tired all day. I’d been drinking lots of water all day, and ate quite a bit too:
Breakfast: Special K (before run), Porridge, Pineapple Juice, 2 slices of toast.
Snack: Cinnamon and Raisin bagel with peanut butter.
Lunch: Chicken mayo wrap, Muller Rice, Mars bar milkshake.
Snack: Snickers bar (forgot to eat my usual apple :-/ ).
By the time I went to the gym I was getting hungry again…..then:
Dinner: Baked potato and chicken pesto (then a bowl of new Lion bar cereal….yum!)
Have you ever tried the new Lion (as in Lion bar) cereal? It’s (pretty sweet but) very tasty!! (I got them from Asda if you are looking for them).
Anyway – back to tonight… I took Monday off as a rest day as I’d been busy in the garden for 4 hours on Sunday so didn’t really get much of a rest day. So we had 2 workouts to do, Insanity Day 19 and Insanity Day 20. We had to catch up with Mondays workout tonight, so it was Double Insanity for us.
We have 6 Insanity workouts to do over the next two weeks… and I decided tonight would be a good time to do Cardio Recovery after another one of the workouts.
The plan for Insanity this week and next is:
Wednesday 24th: Cardio Power and Resistance & Cardio Recovery.
Saturday 27th: Pure Cardio & Cardio Abs.
Monday 29th: Plyometric Cardio Circuit
Wednesday 31st: Pure Cardio
Saturday 3rd: Plyometric Cardio Circuit & Cardio Abs
Then its the 10k and half marathon and then we’re off to Chicago for a few weeks!!
So tonight we did Cardio Power and Resistance (40 mins) and then Cardio Recovery (35 mins).
The Creche in Bellahouston was being used so we were left to use the small warm Function Suite instead. Cardio Power Resistance was tough again. 10 minutes of warm up, then 3 circuits of Power Jumps, Belt Kicks, Hit the Floor, V Push Ups. Then some tricep work, and back to 3 circuits of HUrdle Jumps, Globe Jumps, Moving Push ups and Floor Sprints. Finishing off with 5 x 8 hop squats / 8 push ups.
I have to say by half way through I was dripping with sweat. So much so I took my t-shirt off!! Sports bra and locked door…. who cares? Not me! It was just me and my Fit Friend in there anyway, so it was cool.
Cardio Power and Resistance: 40 mins, Ave HR: 119 (63%), Max HR: 155 (82%), Calories: 300
Then it was Cardio Recovery. A bit more of a relaxed pace, lots of stretching, balancing, strength work….. ouch. There are some squats and lunges in there which give me more pain (burn) than I care to remember!
Cardio Recovery: 35 mins, Ave HR: 93 (50%), Calories: 200.
