Hey Labor Dayers!
(really I’m posting this on Sunday afternoon, so it’s not technically Labor Day yet. But I have a feeling that some of you have all ready started celebrating. CoughMeCough.)
I just had to stop in and share this super fun workout that myself and THREE other people did on Saturday! That’s right – some people came to my Track Star workout (and I almost made them vomit).
The morning started at 7AM (technically 7:05AM, since T hit the snooze and we spooned for 5 minutes – best start to any day. Side note – I just can not fall asleep while spooning. I just get too hot and I like to sprawl out. But spooning in the early morning, I can do for some reason – maybe because I’m already half asleep? The BEST thing is when we both kind of wake up around 4 or 5 and then spoon from there on. Ah, I love the married life.)
After that great start, I was out of bed, brushed my teeth, threw my hair up in a messy bouf and got dressed.
Fasted state workout with fitmixer BCAAs – Brooks Glycerin 8’s on the feet.
I got to the track at 7:25. it was so pretty. Calm and serene. Very much the antithesis of how we would all soon feel.
Very shortly, my co-worker-outers (a real word) showed up!
We started with a quick two lap warmup, then I showed them the workout for the day. Here’s what we started with:
This was a GREAT one. I tried to create a “layered workout” – if you look at it closely, you’ll notice that there is a layering effect to every circuit (we got water after every sprint/jog) and it just kept building on itself. This meant that we did a total of 80 pushups, 4 minutes of plank, and 150 squats. Hard, but fun.
I will be choked with a salami for posting this picture. Had to.
I left it up to Katy to create our Bonus WOD! She delivered!! She said she was inspired by my TT “Animalistic” workout – I love that she reads my blog.
Pin this one and do it sometime this week. You’ll need a stopwatch or interval timer – I use the FREE Gymboss app on my iPhone and create a custom timer that beeps every minute. EMOM workouts (Every Minute On the Minute) are quickly becoming a favorite of mine!
Flying squirrels = Plyo Jack
Inch worm = Walk your hands out to a plank position, walk them back in.
Frog Jumps = Squat Jumps
Reptiles = Plank, knee to elbow
After the Bonus WOD..…we got a little silly with the self timer. I blame the post exercise endorphins.
It started out innocent enough, with cheerleader legs.
Then we started posing….
Katy = vertically challenged. Maddy = over it.
Callie wants to kill me for making her do 80 pushups.
Someone yelled “Lindsay’s List is hot” from across the field.
And lastly, my favorite of the day.
A great Saturday morning! My goal is to do these every Saturday (when I can) until it gets uber cold. 7:30 at the high school track – COME!
The rest of the day I worked on house renovations. Here’s a sneak peek of that labor:
I’ll be taking tomorrow off from the blog to do more house renovations and ANOTHER track workout!
Come back Tuesday for a GREAT Tuesday Trainer workout! If you haven’t filmed a submission yet, DO IT – go here for details!
Have a blessed weekend!
QUESTION: What are YOU doing this Labor Day?? I want to hear all your fun plans!
