Best Body Bootcamp Week 5 Update

Good morning! Morning came bright and early for me – woke up at 5AM. Dozed on and off and watched TV until 7AM, then decided to get up. The good news is I am already halfway through my laundry. Once hubby gets up, I will change and head to the grocery store. Must get that done today. We are also hoping to get in a bike ride this afternoon. We have neglected our bikes this year.

It is going to be a busy week ahead of me. Work, a couple of girls night out, my workouts, etc. I am hoping to fit in a spin class this week. I need to call the location and make sure my pass is still good and that I can get into the class. *fingers crossed* And the best part? This week leads us into a 3 DAY WEEKEND!!! No big plans or races for Labor Day weekend and I am okay with that.

I cannot believe week 5 of Tina’s Best Body Bootcamp is over today. Only 3 more weeks! Want to join in for the next round? It is coming up in October. Check out Tina’s post announcing Best Body Bootcamp Round 3. You can sign up starting Monday September 17th.

My two personal goals this week were:

* Plank / Bridge
* Stretch 10 minutes per day

Practice definitely pays off. I can now hold an elbow plank consistently for 60 seconds. This is HUGE for me. Planks are a great way to work your abs without crunch after crunch.

You might remember from my 10 Great Reasons to Stretch post, that I put this on my list because I realized I couldn’t touch my toes. Guess who can touch her toes after just one week of stretching? ME! This just shows that I need to consistently stretch. Must stay limber and flexible. I will be leaving these goals the same for week 6.

My workouts this week were mainly cardio since I am trying to figure out what is going on with my calf. Sadly I have been neglecting my strength training, but I will remedy that this week.

Do you have your workouts scheduled for the week? Any big Labor Day plans?

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  1. I’ve been very neglectful of strength training this past week, too! And, I only clocked in four days of activity, period. This week HAS to be better. Planning on starting with a nice long cardio interval workout in the park, before it rains today…
