Like everyone else who blogs here, I am partial to a new toy or two. I decided that after my last Polar heart rate monitor died (from overuse) that it was time to invest in a new one! I scored myself a lovely blue F-11, which I cannot wait to try out. When the delivery guy came I was in the middle of doing a new workout, "Step Boxing" by Kelley Coffey Meyer. Boy, I don't think this fella knew what to think when he saw sweaty moi at the front door.
But back to Kelley's workout - this one I really enjoyed. I must admit I was apprehensive about it, because I have heard wildly conflicting opinions about it - once I got used to Kelley's style of cueing, it was "game on".
I also did p90x Chest, Shoulders and Triceps - I had never done this one either and I was sorely humbled - one armed push ups (I had to do these on my knees) and clap plyo pushups figured in the mix. Then I ran 100 metres up and down the road outside for 20 minutes. I cannot leave the house because with hubs being away, I do not want to leave my kids unattended. Jogging up the road and sprinting back ensured that I could see the house at all times and I still got my workout in.
I had breakfast the Precision Nutrition way and added peanut butter to my oats and protein powder. It aint half bad with chocolate!
