1I traveled to NYC Tuesday, my first time flying Allegiant. Talk about no frills…
I walked the 3+ miles from the Tribeca apartment to Times Square to attend Dear Evan Hansen. Wow, what an incredible performance! I do wish I had seen with original cast.
Wednesday, April 3
I was exhausted after a day of teaching, and took a very short power nap just prior to working out 6:15 pm.
Every 15 seconds for 30 minutes
9-second count burpee
Second 1: bend and place hands on floor
2: jump to strict plank
3: nipples and face cheek to floor
4: push up to plank
5: knees to elbows
6: stand to full extension
8: stand to full extension
9: jump and clap hands over head
Certainly not an aerobic activity, but grueling nonetheless. And something I don’t want to do again anytime soon.
Thursday, April 4
I worked out at 6:15 am. Yup, just 12 hours after yesterday’s workout.
3 strict pull-ups with 3 second-rest at hang between reps 2 & 3
10 Russian KBS
This was an aerobic workout, and my average heart rate was 143, peaking at 160 bpm. Time = 23:23
Friday, April 5
DL + HPC + PP + Squat
I thought I’d be able to complete as TNG. This. Did. Not Happen.
30-second plank hold
Sunday, April 7
I felt somewhat guilty for not working out Saturday. Given that it was Jeff had very limited time together, ’twas wise of me to relax and enjoy the afternoon and evening.
Every 30 seconds for 50 rounds
1 strict pull-up
1 strict T2B
1 strict HRPU
5 air squats
This ended up being tabata-ish, and rounds took between 15 and 19 seconds. That’s just 250 squats.
Monday, April 8
Burpee + DL (150#) + twisting lateral bar hop
~Rest 2 minutes~
Burpee + DL (185#) + twisting lateral bar hop
~Rest 2 minutes~
Burpee + DL (225#) + twisting lateral bar hop
The bad kitties were, well, bad, and I was WIDE AWAKE at 6:30. I took Luke and Cinna for a walk around Carrier Park and then worked out.
I set a goal to complete just 1 fewer reps per previous round. And did the opposite. Ha! I completed 25, 26, & 27 reps. Perhaps I wasn’t warmed up enough when I began.
25 unbroken double unders
1 strict HSPU
Talk about a shoulder burner! I missed the 7th rep the 19th round, but completed the remaining 24 rounds in unbroken reps with no failed jumps. Yay!
I often found myself resting my shoulders before attempting HSPU, as I didn’t want any failed reps. I had none. Time = 22:07
