Day 8 - Baseball

I was hoping for more today, but I ended up with lots of chores in the am. Baseball was late afternoon, and I batted, but didn't run, beyond two trips to first base where I went quickly, but didn't press. The leg felt OK in my 4 innings in the field.

Day 7 - baseball

An early one, the morning baseball makeup. No batting for me, deciding to take a break, but I did alright in the field, covering first for 5 innings.

Day 2 - Mix

A mixed workout. I went early for a class with my daughter, but her wrist hurt, so after 9 stations of the circuit cross training, we went to do some other stuff.

It's been three days. No exercise. Taking it easy, icing the hamstring, which still feels sore.

Day 4 - Insanity

I did better. A few minutes later, but I got right in there, going through the sets. I avoided most of the push up stuff and had to stop a few times during the longer sessions there, but I did get through the class with few stops.

Still not doing great, but doing well. Added in 15min of elliptical at the end.

Day 3 - Yoga

Went to what I thought was a Barre class. Must have been C1. Sweated, worked, but not too strenuous. Maybe a 6?

Day 2 - Kickboxing

A good class. I tried weighted gloves, but they came off. Worked hard, made it through class. The lack of pushups/situps makes it better for me and I sweated nicely.

Added in some elliptical at the end.

Day 1 - 1000 Jacks

I went to a circuit class, but we never got to the circuit. Instead it was military night. Everyone picked up a "rifle", weighted straight bar. Mine was 9lbs and I'm glad. We did sets of 100 jumping jacks, lifting the bar. We did sets of 50 pushups, though really in the 35-40, half pushups for me. We jogged around, sprinting to the front of the line, and did 100m sprints outside.

It was exhausting.

When it was done, I still hadn't hit 10,000 steps, so I did 10 on the elliptical.

Day 12 - Tabata

The Insantiy was replaced by tabata. I decided to give it a try, hoping it would be a good workout, but not too hard. It's in the middle. After a short warmup, we do 8 exercises 8 times each. We do them for 20s and then rest for 10s. It's a ride.

As an example, the first one was jump twists (4) and then pushups (4). Repeat as much as you can for 20s before a 10s rest. As with many things, 3-4 reps are easy, 4-5 are really, really hard. A good workout for me.

A good workout for me today. 8 innings of first base, playing for 3 hours, moving and jogging in between long innings, and on my feet working a bit. Some stretches, a decent number of first base plays.
