It’s Thursday and it’s raining. Bleck. I’m just thankful that my gym has childcare and that I can go bust out a few miles on the treadmill here in a bit. Being cooped up in the house is SO not my style. Plus, when I get back, I’ll shower and put on PJ’s. Not alot of people get to do that during the day. Like I said yesterday, I’m blessed!
Let me get right to it and tell you guys this week’s Tuesday Trainer theme. I’m too tired to even make you guess. I blame the rain.
The theme is CORE. Another favorite of mine. I usually try to do my corework every other day, at the beginning of my workout (after a warm-up and stretching). If I leave it until afterwards, I’m more likely to just skip it all together.
If you’re new to Tuesday Trainer, it’s basically a way for you guys to have a stake in creating an awesome workout. You take the theme (CORE this upcoming week) and film yourself completing a move that falls within the theme. With the submitted moves, I’ll create a workout. Depending on the number of submitted moves, I may or may not be able to USE every single one in the workout. Don’t worry! I will still feature them at the bottom, with a link to your site. Go here for details on how to upload your video.
A few guidelines:
- Feel free to give tips on proper execution and technique.
- DON’T include a number of reps or weight. I’ll do that part.
- If your move isn’t correct, meaning improper form or instruction, I will not be able to feature it. Do your homework and get it right!!
- On Tuesday, grab the Tuesday Trainer button, to provide your readers with an easy link to the workout! Simply copy the text below and paste it into your HTML code.
**DEADLINE for submitting moves is Monday night, the 26th, at 8pm EST. Again, go here to learn how to upload your video!***
So I’m sure you’re wondering what THE ANNOUNCEMENT is, right?
No – I’m not pregnant. No – I haven’t been asked to be an OnWhey Ambassador (although I gladly would!)
The news is: I just signed up for my first triathlon. And…it’s in 2 weeks!?!!
This is the first year for the WNC Outdoorathlon, a day-long outdoor event that features live music, food, demos and race events. In addition to fly fishing and climbing demonstrations, there will be a 5k and a Triathlon.
When I first heard about this event, I knew that I’d sign up for the 5k. I can do a 5k. However, the triathlon caught my eye because they replaced the “swim” portion with KAYAKING! I’m no swimmer, but I can kayak in still water.
I’m aware that two weeks of training is not adequate. I’m masochistic. I’m also kind of in love with the idea that if I don’t do well, I can just blame it on “failure to train”. I just want to have fun and say that I did it! My plan is to get at least one kayaking and one biking practice in before the 8th. That’s about all I’ll have time for.
So triathletes: Any training tips? What should I eat before hand? During? What should I wear? HELP!!
Also, deadline for entering my giveaway is tonight at midnight. I’ll announce the FIVE winners tomorrow!
