Mayhem Accomplished!

Tuesday, July 08, 2008

I got lucky today - it rained last night (again) but the ground wasn't too soggy this morning. Here's what I tortured myself with before work:

10-15 Minutes BRISK warm up cardio.

3 rounds of the following

50 Sit-ups (or crunches)
50 Dips
10 Walking Lunges (each leg)
25 Push-ups (normal hand position)
50 squats
50 butterfly kicks
25 Push-ups (hands close together with thumbs touching)

10 minutes BRISK cardio (don’t cheat yourself here, as this is where the real weight loss takes place)

Now I have a 30 minute bike ride to work... which is easy when I haven't used my legs yet, but it's gonna hurt today.

Oddly enough, I was most worried about pulling off the 50 squats, as those are always my weak point, but I actually gave out on the push-ups first. The last set I made it through only 15 of each variety. Was sure one hell of a workout, though. I still feel a little bit sick to my stomach, but in that good "oh my god I just worked really hard" sort of way.

    Once upon a time I COULD do 50 pushups in a row! Back when I was a junior varsity swimmer... alas, my arms are wimpy now.

    Ah yes the reckoning challenge.
    Congratulations, sounds like you stuck through it like a good monkey!
    I gave out on the pushups too. I can only do about 12 and then I max out :(
    Oh well. Someday we'll do 50 in a row and laugh about the days we could only do 12!
