alrighty then, onto this week’s plan. It’s going to be a bit of a crazy week socially, as a darling friend of mine from Cayman’s just told me that she’s visiting, plus I’m teaching pole, taking a trapeze lesson and fitting in a social life as well!
Luckily next Monday’s a bank hol so at least I’ll get some rest in then!
monday: p90x2 (total body + x2 ab ripper) + hypoxi
tuesday: p90x2 (x-stretch) + pole (teaching)
wednesday: p90x2 (x2 balance and power) + hypoxi + puma faas claas
thursday: personal training + trapeze
friday: p90x2 (x2 core) + hypoxi
saturday: p90x2 (plyocide) + burlesque (teaching) + swim
sunday: bikram yoga + gymnastics + p90x2 (x2 recovery and mobility)
It’s a bit of a quieter week than usual because I know I’ve got a lot on outside of exercise, and also I know I’m working from home on Thursday so I won’t be able to make ViPR which automatically cuts out one class. I’m hoping therefore that I actually make everything on the list!
right, well I think we could call this the week of total collapse haha! Wow, did I burn out towards the end of the week (and, if I’m honest, I went into the week burned out, so no real surprises there). On Friday I called a time-out and went into rest and recovery week, but here’s how I did overall.
p90x2: total body and x2 ab ripper were both sooooooooo hard this week … I think all my numbers were down and it was an unbelievable struggle. Such is life, some days are just harder than others!
hypoxi: cancelled today as there were no suits left in my size. I was actually really grateful because I was so tired. zzzzzzzzzzzz.
p90x2 (x-stretch): oops, ended up being a rest day!
hypoxi: all good really! Hypoxi’s … just hypoxi …
pole (teaching): man I was soooooooooo nervous ’cause this was my first lesson teaching for LAPD and I had no idea how it would go. I think I burned off about a billion calories just in nervous tension. The class was so much fun though – but so knackering!
p90x2 (x2 balance and power): ARGH! DVD disaster! Thwarted by my evil DVD …
hypoxi: just hypoxi. Suit was pretty tight.
puma faas claas: so, so tough. I nearly cried.
personal training: another mammothly hard one – with four hundreds! After burpees last night!!!!! Unbelievable!! And then strip-sets with rows and deadlifts. Sob!
trapeze: thank GOD an easier session. Phew. Or I might’ve cried.
p90x2 (chest & back & balls): total bust. I just couldn’t do it. Rest week starts today!
hypoxi: coolio … just another session. I was tired and looking forward to getting home!
burlesque (teaching): wow a lot of teaching for one who’s meant to be resting! Five hours of it, to be exact. That’s a lot of laughing, dancing, pulling silly faces and clapping.
gymnastics: despite my restiness, gymnastics wasn’t waiting for anyone, so off I trundled. Didn’t go too well, but I did discover elastic stretching which I’ll be posting about soon, it was awesome!
basically, it was definitely a half-hearted week although I did try my best. My mind was willing but my flesh was weak. Very weak. Never mind – after a lovely rest week this week I’ll be back in the game!
Happy bank holiday week everyone!
