TapouT XT Day 20 of 90

Day 20 = Sprawl and Brawl

This is how the day started…

Yes, more snow!

When will it end?  But looking back at last year on my blog, I noticed a picture taken on April 24th of 2012 and there was snow on the ground then.  
So I am not worried, but I am SO done with winter weather right now.

Even though there was snow on the ground, I grabbed my workout gear, got dressed and made my way downstairs.  I was FREEZING!  I stood there just staring out the window, frozen in disbelief and could not move.  I was afraid if I moved I might crack and break into tiny ice pieces, I was that cold.  LOL

I made my way to my workout area and warmed up by doing TapouT XT’s Sprawl and Brawl.  

It definitely got my heart pumping and warmed me right up.  A few of my favourite moves in this workout are: Fighter Burpees and the Groiners/Fighter Burpees with Punches, these two moves really got the blood flowing.  I modified some of the Push Up/Plank/Dive moves.  I did Plank/Knee Strike/Push Up instead.  I just found to do the move that Mike and the crew were doing, it bothered me a bit so I did the moves I mentioned.  They were just as intense, but felt better for my body.  “To Quit Does Not Exist” so that’s why I modify instead.  I felt great after this workout and I did think about doing the make up workout of Plyo XT that I missed on Wednesday, but then I thought of the things I had to get done today and I decided I would do it tomorrow on my Rest Day.  I know, I should be taking my rest, but I took Wednesday as my Rest Day.  That is my plan.

It was still snowing when I completed the workout.  I should have jumped right in the shower, but I didn’t, I made and ate my breakfast instead.  Bad idea…I got cold again…really cold.

While making my breakfast I received a text from my sister.  She was letting me know that she had registered for the Color Me Rad 5K Toronto run.  Yay!!!!!!  That makes two of us now on team - “A Healthier Version of Me”. 
She did inform me that the 10am wave is SOLD OUT, but if you still want to be on my team, you still can.  The only thing is that we will be running at different times.  The waves are only 15 minutes apart, so it’s not like we will be running and then getting the heck out of there.  It’s going to be a blast of colourful fun!  I hope you will join me in this 5K race.

I am thinking of getting some team shirts made up, so let me know if you are interested.  Of course they will be white; we have to show our colours off that we earned.

The snow has be coming and going all day, and yes it is still cold.  My son had a birthday party this afternoon and my daughter and I went shopping at the mall while we waited for him.  I need to win the lottery before I take her out to the mall again.  She wanted to buy every thing she saw.  I said “No” to this and that, and then the whining started.  I bought my “first ever” pair of running shorts.  The New Balance store at the mall was closing down today, and everything was on sale 40-50% off the lowest price.
We had a nice little shop, walk and talk…oh yes…the whining was not so nice though.  It was still nice to spend the mother/daughter together.

I must cut this short again today as we are doing something fun and special tonight with the children.
I will talk to you tomorrow.

Until then…Stay Strong!

Have a great night!
