Hello again everyone!
Boy does it feel good to be back and blogging again. I’ve got to keep working out my writing muscles too :)
I had a fantastic workout this morning–it was REALLY tough. I totally underestimated the difficulty and intensity of the first ZWOW partly due to the fact that Zuzana had taken quite a bit of time off of her strict regimen for personal reasons, had put on some weight, and lost some of her strength. I thought “well I’ve been at this for a while…I should be able to KILL her time!” Boy was I ever wrong. I seemed to have forgotten how driven and beastly Zuzana is. She powered through it like a machine–even with reduced strength she completed this tough workout faster than I could.
Workout: ZWOW 1 <——–That’s the link to the workout :)
Side to Side squat leg lifts (40)
Side Plank Lifts (10 each side)
One Leg Pistol Squats (10 each leg)
This is one round. Do a total of three to complete the workout!
My time: 31 min and 39 sec! That beats my time for my last attempt at this workout by 6 min.
I know I could probably still push harder because there were gaps of time where I stopped to breathe that I know I could have been moving, but I was huffing and puffing so I’ll enjoy the improvement as it comes (lol). Watch Zuzana’s video for instructions and demonstration. If you have any questions about any of the exercises, feel free to leave a comment and I will answer you quickly :)
I’m looking forward to tomorrows run and the first day of week 2 of my C210K program! It will be hot as Hades so hopefully I won’t pass out on my trail :( You know it’s too hot when you consider waking up at 6 on your day off just so you can run during the coolest hour of the day. Ugh. I will also be doing the second ZWOW, so look for that as well! I hope you enjoy this workout and I would love to know everybody’s scores/time. It’s fun sharing workouts with friends so that everyone is doing the same thing at the same time and let’s face it: the competition is addictive! Good luck!
