Day 347 – 349: Midweek mayhem

Ok…I thought i had better do another smooshed together post Or I will be at the end of the challenge before I get around to telling you all!

eeek…It is that close! 16 days left!! I can’t believe it!

anyway…

Day 347 Β Tuesday:

Tuesday Started early… we reverted back to having PT on Tuesday rather than Thursday and it was the one day in the week that I actually felt awake!!

No I hate Tuesday cats this time πŸ˜€

mind you…the first thing I did was sprint intervals on the cross trainer…as a warm up! 1 min average pace, 10s sprint 10s rest, 20s sprint, 20s rest, 30s sprint, 30s rest… not the most fun warm up ever…but I guess it was my own fault for claiming to be awake!

We followed this with a round of:

8 x front squats, 8 x split jerks, 8 x Snatches
followed by:
3 clean and jerk / snatch combos
all with the olympic bar.

pistol squat jump
yes…really!

then a core circuit consisting of 30s each of:
Plank, Leg raises, bridge, hollow body hold, cobra all with no rest in between.
then TRX 30s of each:
muscle ups with a twist to the side, jumping pistol squats, chest press into roll outs.

Then more weights again using the olympic bar:
8 x deadlift, 8 x clean and press, 8 x high pull

After this was boxing, with as is becoming customary, Matt wearing boxing gloves too rather than pads to make the whole thing more realistic. The main difference this week was that we used the big hall that is normally used for classes, which meant we had more space.

of course this meant we moved around more…just to make life even harder πŸ˜€

the evening brought day 3 of my arm challenges πŸ™‚

Day 348 Wednesday

Wednesday was dancing day πŸ˜€

I am almost sure that after an entire year of me saying that you could probably have guessed that!

It was awesome πŸ˜€

you could probably have guessed that too…

we were practicing for the Dorking day of dance on the coming Saturday
I did:
Maiden Castle (x2)
Our Henry
Raggle Taggle Gypsy
Broomstick
King of the Fairies (x3)
Changeling
Spank the Monkey
Fanny Frail
Earth Mother

It was good fun, but I wasn’t half tired at the end…more so than I expected! I was having a heavy legs day!

Day 349 Thursday

at the risk of repeating myself…it was Thor’s day πŸ˜€

thor gif
yes…every Thursday I will make the same reference

It was the day of the Thor Workout!Β Click the linky for details!

It is hard…you obviously don;t get to be Thor without quite a lot of effort!!

It involved my first foray into the Turkish get up!

that is not an easy thing is it!?!?!

Bearing in mind I struggled with this with nothing in my hand, I am surprised there are not more maiming s from people trying to do this with a kettlebell!!

It does count as my first June New Thing though πŸ™‚

I did the workout at the beginner level (3 sets) it was hard!! and I was suffering from Thursday!

I also did both of my arm and dumbbell challenges

In addition to these things, I walked every lunchtime for a minimum of 40 mins πŸ™‚ I hit my 10000 step challenge every day πŸ˜€

Day 347 – 349 Complete πŸ˜€

      2. car tent sounds much more exciting than, there is loads of space in the back of my car so I reckon I can sleep in there if I put the seats down so I don’t have to bother pitching my tent…
