Day 216: Who knew I could do plank jacks…
Good afternoon 🙂
Yesterday’s activity started off with a good brisk march…I mean a leisurely lunchtime walk…
ok…I mean a brisk lunchtime walk 🙂 It was a good walk, I managed to go further than the last tome in the same time, so this is progress, not that I am particularly looking for progress and improvements in my lunchtime walks, but it is nice anyway!
I am slightly running out of pictures to take on my lunchtime walks as I always go in the same couple of places, however I took some anyway because it was a nice day, and you get the opportunity to see my awesome red hat and scarf with rhinos on.
Rhinos, not,as I thought (and asked for) when I bought it…dinosaurs.
still awesome though 😀
Anyway, moving on…I went 3.2 km in 42 minutes 😀 and in my heavy heavy boots 😀
The second part of yesterdays, exercise underwent a last minute change when I drove to the gym, looked through the window and saw that it was still suffering from “January after work” syndrome…possibly Jaw Syndrome…maybe that will catch on..who knows
Anyway… when I saw that virtually every cardio machine and weight bench was already occupied, I couldn’t face a session of waiting about so I went home.
I went home, and decided to do another round of Jillian Micheals 30 day shred, and I decided that I was quite capable of moving up to the level 2 workouts. I was right, the level 2 workouts are much more worth doing, with more compound movements and suchlike.
In the process of this work out, I discovered a thing called a Plank Jack.
This is an exercise which makes planks both harder, and into cardio! Basically, hold a plank, then jump your legs in and out wide apart then close together and repeat 😀 I was surprised I could do them…I thought I would fall over, but (again) I am stronger than I thought! 😀
Weirdly…I actually love them!
and yes…I did do the level 2 work out with my 7.5kg kettlebells too. It was tricky!
Day 216 Complete 😀
