Happy New Year!

Hey everyone! I have been having problems getting on here at work during lunch and then my computer was acting up at home. Figures…..but here I am. I hope everyone had a wonderful new year and has goals for 2012. Here are mine:

1. Read more
2. Train for a full marathon
3. Run at least 7 half marathons AGAIN
4. Get leaner

Not too many yet, but it is only January 2nd.

I want to share my workout from last Tuesday. I thought it was a good one and I felt really good afterwards.

Arms:
Tricep Extension Machine – 35lbs – 12 reps, 3 sets
Pushups – 12
Bicep Machine – 30lbs – 12 reps, 3 sets
Pushups – 12
Chest Press Machine (not the one I normally like – this one you have to do less weight) – 25lbs – 12 reps, 3 sets
Pushups – 12
Fly Machine – 30lbs – 12 reps, 3 sets
Overhead Row – 25lbs – 12 reps, 3 sets

Abs:
Leg Lifts – 12 count
Flutter Kicks – 30 count
Medicine Ball Twists (8lb ball) – 12 count
Repeated this 3 times thru

Cardio:
Arc Trainer – Incline 7/Level 25 – 20 minutes
Treadmill – Incline 2 – Speed of 6.5 – 9 minutes then to Speed of 7.5 for last minute – THIS WAS KILLER!

Then last Wednesday I came down with some stomach bug that took me out of work for the day and from my workout for Thursday. Bummer but I did hit the gym this past Saturday for a 30 minute Treadmill Speed Interval workout and that felt great. It was like I was never sick.

Today, I hit the gym again this morning. I tried a new cross-fit mini workout that I found – see below:

10 Sit-Ups
10 Push-Ups
10 Air Squats
You do this 10 times thru as fast as you can…..it is tough. I did it in 11:55!

Then I did my Elliptical Interval workout which goes like this:

Elliptical Intervals (done at a 10 resistance – the number on your left, the other numbers are for the crossramp – button on your right):

0:00-5:00 – 5
5:00-7:00 – 8
7:00-8:00 – 5
8:00-10:00 – 8
10:00-11:00 – 5
11:00-13:00 – 10
13:00-14:00 – 6
14:00-16:00 – 10
16:00-17:00 – 6
17:00-19:00 – 5
19:00-20:00 – 12
20:00-21:00 – 10
21:00-22:00 – 5
22:00-23:00 – 12

24:00-25:00 – 8

It is a really great workout.
