Sadly, the track unlocker person was not there at 5 so we had to amend our plan. We could jump the fence. But since A. I'm pretty sure that is trespassing and I don't want to go to jail for jumping a fence to, ahem, exercise, and B. I'm not sure after an intense speed workout that I could get back over the fence to leave!
So, we improvised and ran an Indian Drill around the neighborhood. Let me explain an Indian drill. Y'all line up single file, leaving some space between y'all. Take off running at a comfortable pace and then person in the back of the line sprints to the front of the line. As soon as she reaches the front of the line, she slows down. The new last person repeats.
And over and over.
However, this morning, there were only 3 of us Wild Women and that doesn't allow for much recovery time between sprints! Whew.
Finding the track finally unlocked, we headed to the end zone to get our plyometric on. Yep, bounding. We high stepped, kicked our own tails, skipped (my favorite,) monster walked and grapevined. I discovered that while I'm an average left grapeviner, I'm a very awkward right grapeviner. Take that one off my resume.
I expect to be as sore tomorrow as I was winded today! All in all it was a GREAT workout. Try some plyometrics for yourself!
Hey, look at my handsome lunch! Actually, this was supper last night AND lunch today. Both times, delish.
That's an Ezekiel spelt wrap, Boca patty, lotsa spinach, lettuce, tomato and salsa. Yummers indeed. I know, this isn't a food blog. But sometimes my lunch is pretty. Today was one of those days.
And...earlier this week I expressed my heart's desire was to have new markers for my training room. I put down butcher paper to let those inclined to doodle, doodle and these skinnier ones come in handy for grading quizzes. Imagine my delight when they arrived today! Mr. Sketch are the best and these are even scented. Brown is my favorite. It smells like Christmas. (cinnamon) I mean really, what better way to end the workday than with scented markers?
