Wednesday Workout Recap #5

Yessssss, guys…I’m feeling SO much better today. Yesterday was so bleghh, and today is so woohoo!!! πŸ™‚

We made a delicious, simple and easy-on-my-stomach dinner last night: egg fried rice with veggies. MY FAVORITE.

Early to bed, and early to rise… Β you know how the saying goes πŸ˜‰ We watched The Hunt for Red Octoberhave you seen it? I LOVED IT! Sean Connery is definitely in my list of top male actors.

OUTFITT class this morning really worked up a great sweat for me, flushing out bad toxins and getting some badly needed fresh air and summer sunrise ❀

This class is always so fantastic because our coach utilizes all parts of the Milwaukee County parks, and we are just hopping, running, skipping and stair-climbing all over the downtown area!

We started the workout with a jog that focused on exertion levels; meaning, we ran .25 miles at 75% exertion, and then .15 miles at 85% and then did a stair climb, down and up. Then we repeated it 4 more times. It was REALLY intense and opened our strides and got our heart rates through the roof!

Then we jumped up on these cylinder things and did mountain climbers, decline push-ups, and lateral jumps.

^^Sweaty mess Shannon, only halfway through the workout.

We did a segment that had 20 pull ups (feet on the ground, our bodies angled), and then 40 walking lunges…3 times through. DANG that kills our legs (in a great way!).

After this segment, we did sprints of all kinds, which left us all DRAGGING. That was probably the toughest part of the workout. And then, of course, he graciously lets us finish with ONLY two hills today πŸ˜‰ What a nice coach.Β I love how these classes are designed, because they incorporate a great amount of cardio (obviously), but also strength training. πŸ˜€

All I’m thinking about is my nice big protein-spiked smoothie at home…

And a quick peak at my yoga poses for the last two days. These were toughies.
