First the Monday Zgym WO. I’d only previewed one before & didn’t want to spend too much time exercising. But today? I can do whatever.
The new beloved
Still getting to know my iMac & feeling inspired. I woke up this morning and, despite the quantities of good, red wine consumed during Charlie’s birthday dinner, immediately started design concepting. Working on uploading files carefully – in a very organized fashion – into my new, clean docs.
One thing on my list of “to dos” was to get my scanner driver on there, but it’s already there. First time ever for that! I’ll do the Wacom later. Since I’ve got three inputs on this machine I don’t bother bringing my tablet home from work every day, but actually I might want to for a 3-4 hour tile build session. I wonder if the pen works with my trackpad! I’ll check. I’ll bring it home & get that installed…
Summer Shred #8
This was my warm-up. Time = 28ish w/ notes & breaks
x7 Round Ladder 8:35. Not sure if the first move was 1=1 since I previewed days ago but that was a long enough first part for me!
- Frog Hop / Spider Knee 1=1 x10 Frog up fwd. Knee to outside same side arm. Frog hop & other side = 1. So u do it 70x.
- Jump Lunge – ladder: 10 – 15 – 20 – 25 – 20 – 15 – 10
Jump rope: 30 sec side hops I’d thought this would be harder in terms of coordination but it wasn’t. Still the 2:40 set jacked me up so high I immediately decided on 15sec recovery time for the next one, w/ the DUs. / 30 sec high knees x 2
Z does continual intervals 30/30×2. I did 10/30×4-2:40min.
Sumo / rockstar / sumo / jump tuck x10
Weighted reverse burpees to plank rows x10 15s, but not doing the punch up OHs like Z, who’s using 12s. Kept weights down by sides for a squat hop. Kicked my ASS. Did ½ leading w/ LA row & then took a break to sit down & write this.
Jump rope: 30 sec Double unders / 30 sec scissors x2 15/30×4-3:00min Extra rest didn’t help for the DUs. Even though is early is 77 muggy degrees in the office. It’s a suddenly high, hello July level of humidity (for PDX). I got 6 in the first round and only 3 in the 2nd. LOL. But I tried! I’m better when not as hot.
