Friday, day 5 of week 6

I didn't post yesterday because I worked all day and was going to do my interval when I got home, but, my knee was bugging me alot last night. Still not sure what I did, its the wierdest thing! It will hurt one minute and then fine the next. The pain isnt unbearable, but it is rather annoying, so we went for a family walk for about 45minutes plus, which was nice...beautiful breezy night!

So today, my knee felt ok, so I did some stuff around the house and got ready to kick my ass hard!! I did my normal warmup, then I hit the resistance routine with some fire!! I stopped timing myself and just set a certain number of reps to acheive, like some of you guys have also done. So heres what I did for my circuit:

25 standing chest press with all 3 bands
18 linear stability jumps
25 standing rows with red and blue bands
18 one leg box stepups (each leg seperate)
18 tricep bench dips
50 feet walking distance of walking lunge with 25lb dumbell
25 tricep extensions with black band (each arm seperate)
25 alternating toe touches
25 bicep cable curls with blue and red bands (each arm seperate)

Each exercise took about a minute, real close, and to do the whole thing took me about 12 minutes each time. And again, like the other days, I completed a total of 4 circuits with no more than a 1.5 minute break between circuits. Then after I was done with the routine, I took a 2 minute break, had a bit of water, and started my interval training to make up for not doing it last night. Heres what I did:

2min at 3mph, then
2min at 6mph, then
1min at 9mph, then
2min at 6mph, then
1min at 9mph, then

2min at 6mph, then
1min at 9mph, then

2min at 6mph, then
1min at 9mph, then

2min at 6mph, then
1.5min at 3mph, then
1.5min at 2mph.

I finished off with a bit of stretching for my calves afterwards, they were very tight and hot. BUT CAN YOU BELIEVE IT??!!!?! I did 4 rounds of 9mph! And that was after the resistance routine!! I was so frickin excited with myself...after I finished the 4th round of 9mph I was a total dork and put my arms up like Rocky and yelled out "YES, I DID IT!" Stupid I know but I was exstatic. And to tell you the truth, it wasn't that hard. I mean, I was very tired, but everytime the 2minutes of 6mph was up it was like my energy had come back, so I kept doing the 9mph's and ended up with 4 of em. Small victories I guess, even though I may only win some of the battles with my gut, I WILL WIN THE WAR!! Not even the knee will be able to stop me!!!

SO HERES WHERE YOU SHOULD START THE VIDEO AT THE TOP IF YOU HAVNT YET

In conclusion, I just wanted to say to everyone,...we are doing it!!! No matter what anyone else says, no matter what anyone else thinks, no matter how stupid your friends might think this program is,...WE ARE DOING IT!!!! THE BATTLE WITH OUR FORMER OUT OF SHAPE SELVES IS SLOWLY CREEPING TOWARDS THE END, DAY BY DAY, WEEK BY WEEK, WE ARE DOING IT!!! WE WILL NOT SUCCOME TO THE PAIN IN OUR MUSCLES, WE WILL NOT SUCCOME TO THE TAUNTS OF OUR PEERS, WE WILL NOT SUCCOME TO THE INNER VOICE IN OUR HEAD THAT SAYS WE WILL FAIL, ...........

WE ARE DOING IT!!!!!!



THERE'S NOTHING THAT CAN STOP US!!!!!
