Feats of Summer Challenge

What am I going to do with myself

I'm in Houston for the next week, I have no car, no bike, no gym membership and no desire to go running in the crazy Houston heat.

So yesterday I amused and entertained myself by working out to fit TV, I did a little belly dancing, old school cardio and some yoga... I actually broke a sweat.

Grrr.. Catching up

I've been MIA for the last few days due to no internet, packing for a trip and now dial-up internet

So on friday I went for a two hour bike ride with a friend, I was having fitness envy as she was able to knock out 20 push-ups like it was nothing and I was struggling with getting just ten.

Feats of Summer Challenge Day 7 - Workout 1 "Let the fists fly!"

I decided to recommit to boxing. By working with Mike and training on my own the conditioning will take care of itself. Part of why I train is to learn and there is a lot to learn and consider in boxing. I think that I stopped boxing was that I was getting frustrated. I felt I wasn't getting any better. My feet always felt out of place.

Day 5 - tour de Brooklyn

Another intense day of biking - woke up early, met a friend at Prospect Park, and rode three laps. I made him ride his mountain bike otherwise I wouldn't be able to keep up, but he let me set the pace and said he found it challenging.

Day 4

A work celebration involving too much bottle service and a brutal hangover somehow managed to derail two days of workouts. Made an early night of it Friday and woke up for 9 am yoga - not the most challenging session, and the person who runs the class is a bit more hippy-dippy than I'm generally comfortable with, but it got me in a good mind frame for the rest of the day.

1 Feat Accomplished - #8

I forgot to mention it during my muay thai post that I completed the sit ups feat :D It was actually 245 situps in a row, and by the end of it, I was surprised I was still alive... but the important thing is, one feat down, 19 to go!
