CLX Week 1

Friday, September 10, 2010

9/4 Sat: water aerobics (50 min)
My first time ever, and I loved it! Much harder than I thought it would be. I had to use the floating tube to finish water jogging. And I’m a runner! We worked legs, arms and abs.

9/5 Sun: 10K race! Made it in 56:35, again! Placed 1st in my age category and got a cash prize of $75! Say what?!? It was in my parent’s hometown so I had a huge crowd of family cheering me on. Super FUN! In fact throughout the entire route there were LOTS of spectators cheering. It was awesome! The route was good (except for one hill- OMG!). The weather was perfect. It had rained just before the start so it was really cool and not humid. All the participants got a medal and t-shirt and dinner, too!

9/6 Mon: Rest

9/7 Tue: Burn Circuit 1 (34 min), Elliptical (20 min)
I used 5 and 8 lbs dumbbells for this one. Being my first time I just wanted to concentrate on the moves and form. I know now that I can definitely use my hubby’s 20 lbs for the leg work.

9/8 Wed: Burn Circuit 2 (35 min), 2 mile (26 min) easy run on treadmill
Brought out the 20 lbs but not a lot of leg work here. More arms and shoulders. Still an AWESOME session. I will need to move up to 10 lbs and 12 lbs very soon. I love Chalene!

9/9 Thu: Burn Intervals (44 min), Ab burner (10 min)
Whoa! Killer workout! Lots of reps can still BURN! And Ab Burner- DAYUM! Who knew there were so many ways to work the abs! I had to pause quite a lot due to that knot-in-the-stomach-I-feel-lik
e-throwing-up sensation.

Burn Circuit 3 (30 min) is on schedule for today, 9/10 Friday, along with a 2- 3 mile run.
Tomorrow, 9/11 Saturday, water aerobics again. Maybe a run.
Sunday, 9/12 Burn it Off and Recharge planned. Run if I can’t do it on Saturday. I think hubby has to work on Sat. Monday is REST day! Woohoo!

I’m getting extreme baby!

    I absolutely love CE!

    I'm in my 4th rotation after 3+ months of being on doctors' orders to do nothing, so I'm starting out slow and easy on that torn rotator but working the lower body normally.

    It works SO well, just do as she says and don't cut yourself short. Work to FAILURE, where you can't lift that weight another time (if you're going to increasing muscle mass and decreasing body fat--some ppl go easier on it for general strength, whatever!).

    It did amazing things for me when I worked it as presented. I found BIO and BI easier after the first rotation was done. That got me back into running more with the increased cardio. It looks like you're already running, so maybe it'll up your running, too? Hope so! Rock on!
