Yesterday I said I may take a run or something on my rest day. Well that didn’t happen this morning because I SLEPT. I was tired. But what did happen is that two of my kids had football conditioning last night and me and my oldest kiddo decided to do some work. Go US!
Our First WOD was 3 rounds of 20 Box Jumps, Run 30yds, 10 Hand Release Push Ups, Run 30 yds back. We found a picnic table that we used for Box Jumps. The bench only came up to about my knee so our box jumps were probably around 18″. There was a tree that we are approximating was 30 yards from the table so we ran to that and did 10 HR Pushups, then run back to table. I was totally smoking Jonas for the first two rounds then hit a wall with my last round of box jumps. He freakin blazed through his last set and took off beating me by 13 seconds! Time 6:28
Our 2nd WOD was Invisible Fran. 21-15-9 Air Squats and Push Ups. We weren’t sure if they should be regular or hand release push ups but we went with hand release. My
little terd WONDERFUL son definitely was in it to beat me again and that he did! I was blazing through squats but sucking at the pushups. And he was sucking through the squats but blazing through pushups. He fought hard and took me out by 8 seconds! ARGH! Gotta LOVE him for his fight though ツ Time: 2:37 (now if I could get my FRAN time to be that!!)
We were pretty much spent and big hot sweaty messes but we decided to tackle the Monkey Bars before we called it a day. If you’ve been reading you know me and bars in general don’t get along. I suck at pull ups, I suck at toes to bar and I was never the monkey bar queen growing up. Yesterday however I managed to get through them quite nicely. This was a plus in my book.
Jonas was surprised at how much easier it was for me than him so he challenged me to a race! It was just who could go down and back in the best time. Let me be clear I didn’t not fly across with grace and ease I just did better than I thought I would. I managed to go down and back in 27 seconds. Poor Jonas struggled and it took him close to 40 seconds. FINALLY a WIN for MOM! He wanted to go more rounds but I didn’t want my hands to rip so we called it a day.
I think I definitely should add these body weight workouts to my evenings especially since we will be full on football starting in August. I am tired and I can feel the extra ache but nothing unbearable and maybe it’ll give me a boost. I don’t plan on doing them everynight but maybe 2-3 times a week. Only time will tell I suppose. I don’t think it will hurt.
Today is definitely a day of REST. I hope y’all have a WACKY WEDNESDAY. Let your inner child come out and play! Be AWESOME!
