Keep Breathing - Kerrie Roberts

5 GRATITUDES (Thank you, Heavenly Papa!):
  • Thank you God for the kids going with my mom to spend some time with her.
  • Thank you God for good workouts this week.
  • Thank you God our pest control guy came today instead of tomorrow morning.
  • Thank you God for community.
  • Thank you God for being able to run errands without the kids.
  • I have worked late for the past 5 nights.  Arrggh.  I'm still not caught up, but I do have 88% of my work completed and turned in.  I will finish the last 12% tomorrow morning.
  • Really trying to adjust to a new schedule of not taking the kids to school, which I love.  We are driving less and I love that because it means we don't have to use and pay for as much gas and wear and tear on the car.  
  • Love the kids, but sometimes they just bicker to much.  It's been peaceful with my husband and fairly quiet.  It's nice to have some peace and quiet for a bit, though.  They will be back home tomorrow morning.  And I hope they are having a good time with their grandmother and that my mom is enjoying the kids.
  • My husband and I got to have a little date tonight, which is just dinner at Ono's and running errands.  
  • We were going to make our chow mein tonight but the kids aren't home and we will do tomorrow.  Karate doesn't start until next Friday, so we get to enjoy this Friday at home.
  • Today's eating was a bit better.  I did not feel the inclination to snack, which is awesome.
  • Really love our bug guy.  I called to see when he was coming over tomorrow and he said he could come over this afternoon and he did, which allows my husband to not have to get up early.

Zuzka ZAbs #2 (video clips of exercises below)

12 Min. AMRAP (As Many Reps As Possible)
  • 5 Sets:  Walkout to Plank - 10 Alternating Cross Toe Touches to Jump Tuck
  • 20 Lying Side Crunches (each side) ---> My Alternate Exercise, 40 Alternating Standing Side Crunches
  • 20 Alternating Santana Planks
Cooldown - yoga mat, dual baseballs in sock for ankle areas, foam roller

Warmup:  Time = 5:55, Max HR = 116 bpm, Avg HR = 100 bpm
Round 1:  Time = 5:20, Max HR = 139 bpm, Avg HR = 129 bpm
Round 2:  Time = 5:16, Max HR = 141 bpm, Avg HR = 135 bpm
Round 3:  Time = 1:49, Max HR = 148 bpm, Avg HR = 144 bpm
Cooldown:  Time = 12:38, Max HR = 145 bpm, Avg HR = 108 bpm

Zone 1 = 7:06, Zone 2 = 3:26, Zone 3 = 2:12, Zone 4 = 0:02, Zone 5 = 0:00

Rounds Completed = 2.26 (made it through 4 sets of the first exercise - 1 more set than last time)

Total Time = 31:00
Max HR = 148 bpm
Avg HR = 117 bpm
Total Calories = 307

Notes:  The outsides of my calves were hurting a little (not bad) during the workout starting from the second round, the bottoms near my ankles, so I paid more attention to this area during cooldown, using the foam roller and stretches so as to not get trigger points here.  Later, I may take the baseball and work on this area some more.

I pushed harder and was able to get one more set of the first exercise than last time and I think last time I really did 14 minutes not 12.  Today I was slightly more than 12 minutes.  As you can see from my heart rates, I worked harder and was able to get my heart rates up significantly more than the first time doing this workout.  For rounds 1 & 2, I shaved off slightly more than a minute for each round!!!  Woohoo!
