Intervals. I’ll say it again:
Intervals are the devil. Especially when you haven’t done them in weeks.
I also hadn’t had any carbs all day and was really dragging. I was disappointed in my performance but my trainer was glad to see I was giving it my all (even if I didn’t think I was living up to what I thought I could do).
He said, “You know what I like about you? You don’t quit. Even if something is really hard, you still finish it the best you can.” I said, “I so often feel like I could’ve done better.” He said, “Maybe but you could be a lot worse.”
A good way to think about it, I guess.
Here’s the rundown:
- Lunge with a twist – 20 yards
- Slide-n-glide – 20 yards
- High knees, butt kicks – 10 yards each
- Frankensteins, RDLs – 10 yards each
- Karaoke – 40 yards
First HIIT sequence (x3)
- Sled push – 20 yards
- Jumping jacks – 20
- whoa, I can’t remember the last part of this one
Second HIIT sequence (x3)
- Kettlebell burpees x 10 (go to plank, bring the feet back in, squat lift a kettlebell (35 lbs), bring weight up to chin, squat lower weight, repeat)
- Frog squats x 15
- Inchworms – 5 yards (first set was 10 yards)
- Jog a lap
Third HIIT sequence (x2)
This sequence was timed. I’m not sure of my numbers.
30 second intervals with 15 second rest between. 2 minute rest between sets.
- Jumping squats
- Mountain climbers
- Jump rope
- Balance clock (I’d balance on one foot and Trainer Nick would call out positions on the clock for me to stretch my other leg out to)
