WL, thanks for the tip!
I like that tip, I haven't done weights for a long time, but the bar collar tip is good I will remember that.
Woh, --snowstorm walk. That's dedication. :) And a good workout.
Yes, it's STILL snowing out so I guess that wasn't my last walk in the snow - going out for a long one after this and my smoothie.
Yesterday was a 90min dance lesson that I absolutely loved. It was all modern dance. New choreography, and I had a blast! Sometimes I find myself dreading lessons or classes, wanting to flake-out or cancel minutes before -- but I always end up so happy after I go through it. Inside & out, I feel so good -- then wonder why I didn't want to give it a go. Fear can be such a crazy thing. It's rarely justified.
I like that Dan is saying 'try something new!' -- we've been talking about that on this thread for some time. I think it's important for so many reasons. :) Everyday, go for it, open up, reach beyond the comfort zone. It doesn't have to be a physical or sporty adventure, it can even be a verbal one or a mental one. Try a new thought -- a new way to think about something or someone, or say something you usually wouldn't say, take a risk, reach beyond your imagined limits! :)
Newness keeps you young. Yesterday we took the kids to an environmentally-centered college (Unity College) to pick up my niece who goes there. All the lights were off in her dorm, the hallways were dark, I thought it was great. Then we all went to meet the Hope Elephants, rescued circus elephants. They were beautiful - I'm in love.
Before we left I rebounded 20 minutes, walked 15 and worked out on the apex, actually did a full bench press with 70 lb!
Wow, what a beautiful day!
And nice job on the bench press. :)
50 burpees [3:23]
med tire tug pulling
med tire sled dragging (much like your pic, Luv, but bandoleer-style as there's no harness)
heavy tire farmers carries
The more I bravely step into the unknown, the more I feel free.
A beautiful concept, Aimee :)
Thanks! :) Xx!
Yes the rebounder is great when there's not much time to workout. I'm also glad I have one :)
Nice day out Mary! I love elephants.
About reaching beyond your comfort zone: I took the next step in the running training this morning and thought it went great, but later on I was too exhausted to do anything, slept for an hour like it was night time and also got a little headache.
Yesterday I cancelled my MYO subscription, because I'm going to stick to the Ashtanga program for a while. I believe it has a healing influence on my whole system and I also like the challenge to get into the more difficult poses and to build a strength in the upper body I never thought was possible. I'm OK with slow progress, to avoid injuries :)
You're so creative in your workouts WL, love that! Here's an other idea:
