Week 15: Cardio Power-up for 100 Miles by Summer!

Its the last week of 100 Miles by summer.  I need a bit about 28 miles this week.  My best week was 24.5 miles on the second week.  Its just a bit more, right? I’m going to try my best to be extremely active in the cardio work. Plus, this week’s daily challenge is to do 2 miles of whatever you want cardio-wise.  I usually manage to get in at least 2 miles of walking when the weather is good.  But it doesn’t end with that, we also have 50 push-ups and 100 TIU Tummy Tucks every day.  Also, its the final week for the Bikini Series.  I followed it loosely so my body isn’t totally ready and looking hot like K&K at Tone it Up but, its getting there.  Lets rock it!

Monday

2 miles–> DONE! at lunch running errands, dropping off documents 🙂

50 push ups –> 25 reps/25 reps DONE before dinner!

100 TIU tummy tucks –>25 reps *4 with one minute break in between!

Today is my off day! Attacked with cramps for most of the day and felt like crap! My goal was to stick with completing the Daily Challenge! 🙂

Tuesday

2 miles –>DONE! 4.50miles in total

50 pushups –> DONE! before my long evening walk with the boyfriend

100 TIU Tummy tucks –> Only 25 was done in the morning…then cramps hit

Postponed the workout to the next day due to not feeling very well…

Wednesday

2 miles –>DONE! 2.25 miles today

50 pushups –>two sets of 25 with one break in between after workout

100 TIU tummy tucks –>25 in the morning, 25 before dinner, 25 before yoga, 25 after 🙂

New pre-workout yoga routine released yesterday called Ibiza Beach Yoga Routine!  I’ve never done yoga before so I decided to challenge myself a bit. I’m sure some moves weren’t done exactly right but I’m learning and actually, to my surprise, I found it incredibly fun.  Maybe I’ll start looking into more yoga routines 🙂

Perfect way to start off my DDR session.  I was weighing between 30 minutes or an hour and decided on the lesser one since I’m not really feeling tip top and the Yoga one actually took a lot of energy out of me, even if it was just stretching, still it required lots of ab and full body work.

Thursday

2 miles –> 3.55 miles with a nice evening walk with my mom! We had a lot of catching up after her trip in Hong Kong.

50 pushups –>Done! Before the workout!

100 TIU tummy tucks –>30/30/40 DONE!

For the workout, its doing the Thailand Tush workout three times through.  I only did 2 times since my health has been not too great and I’m having this weird hit of insomnia.  I think its the stress.  Still, it was a good workout. I felt really good afterwards! Plus, my behind could really use some working out 🙂 Especially since there might be a water park day with the girls soon!!! I hope it works out!

Friday

2 miles –>I had a crazy amount of walking on my night out! Got in over 3miles! 🙂 DONE!

50 pushups and 100 TIU tummy tucks have to be postponed as I got home at about midnight! I’m going to do them tomorrow morning instead!

Saturday

Rain starting hitting early in the morning so I ended up doing the 50 pushups and 100 tummy tucks!

I had a few errands to run so I ended up getting in about a mile of walking done and wishing that I had done more because it could end up being the reason I miss that 1 mile to hit 100 by summer…

Sunday

I managed to get up in time for a morning jog with some walking in between.  It tallied up to 6.8 km (4.22 miles).  I still am not really doing great and having some weird health issues.  I am getting a bit more sleep so its just a matter of time before my energy level is back to normal.  Not overdoing it on the 2nd jog of 2013 is also very wise! Guess what? I remembered to stretch afterwards…YES! 🙂

OVERALL…

This week didn’t seem like I did a lot of strength training and took it easy but I think once in a while, its good to do that.  I managed to keep up with the daily challenges for the most part.  Only had one day where I lost 75 tummy tucks. As for the 100 by summer, I managed to hit 98.8 miles in total of all the weeks together.  Close enough, right? This week did have its greats! I did my first ever yoga routine and its peaked my interest.  I’m going to try to seek out some more and look into this, plus, I went for my first summer outdoors jog and I like it a lot! Its actually really destressing and calming for my mind and body! A very refreshing feeling for sure! 🙂

This week’s recommendation has to be the Beach Yoga Routine on Tuesday! Its pretty decent and its actually rather challenging.  I’m not very flexible for the most part but its an eyeopening experience.  Totally loved it! 🙂

The break is over! Next week, my life has to get back to normal especially with the workouts 🙂 When this goes up, my next week’s tentative workout schedule should be up!

Hope you had a fabulous Monday! 🙂
