Hi, happy HuMp day! Hope you are having a good week so far. My day began with a little bit of everything for breakfast...
1/2 scoop of MRM Vanilla Protein Powder
1/2 tsp. of baking powder
I had half a serving left of this huge container of protein powder that needed to go. I combined all of the ingredients, mixed in a bowl, cooked it like I would a pancake and topped it with a bit of nut butter and a diced granny smith. Strange combo, but it was delicious. ;o)
Anywhosers... If you recall from my last post, I shared how through the Spartan race boot-camp I discovered how badly I need to work on my running and balance. I have made it my mission to improve on both.
Here's my running schedule for this week:
I started running on the treadmill this week and plan to take it outside once the weather cooperates.
As far as working on my balance, I have been incorporating balance moves with my weight training. I have added simple balance moves such as, performing single leg bicep curls and standing on one leg for a minute. I know these sound easy, however, my balance stinks and I need to start where I feel comfortable at. Also to improve my balance, I am incorporating a yoga day into my routine.
Since starting boot-camp last week, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays are now weigh-training days for me, cutting my weight training from 5 days a week to only 3 days a week. I am changing things up a bit until these 2 days a week of
hell boot-camp are over.
In case you were wondering, I have not signed up for the Spartan Race yet. To be honest I have been doubting my ability to go through with it. I am still not used to Colorado's altitude and 3 weeks is just not enough time to prepare.
I have to admit that while performing 2 of the obstacles during boot-camp the words "I can't do this" have come out of my mouth a few times. Oooh, did I mention that every time you fail to complete an obstacle you have to do 30 burpees before you could move on to the next obstacle? YEP!
Burpees are usually not a challenge for me, I am actually part of the rare few that enjoys doing them. However, I ended up doing 60 on Monday, due to my balance issues and that damn rotating monkey bar! But, I am sticking to the boot-camp whether I do the race or not.
I am not sure that I will be participating this year, but next year, IT IS ON BABY!
