So today started rather earlier as I needed to have bloods taken and it was a fasting one – so got to the hospital nice and early, and was back in time to walk the small people to school and nursery.
Starving by the time I got home, after fasting for 18 hours – hubby had got my cereal and cup ready for when I got back.
Then down to some studying – before heading back out to collect the Blue One from nursery, lots of brisk walking as it was chilly out there!
Two little friends over to play for the Boy and a chat for me with their lovely mummy, then more walking to collect the Pink One, and this was the long way round as she had gymnastics tonight! Love that my kids love being active, I hope that it lasts! The sky looked lovely – so took some piccies!
Once home, got the kids fed, and I got ready for this week’s Boxercise class but then I needed to wait for the hubby to get home – normally it’s my study day and I am usually child free so I can get out easily, but had to do a switch this week. So typically Southeastern were running S…L…O…W… so the poor hubby got in about 10 mins before my class started, so I literally flew out the door.
Got to my Boxercise class and it was straight into the warm up – there was lots of squats.
Into the gloves and pads, intensive 20 seconds of jabs, then 10 seconds of the person in the pads doing squat jumps while the one in gloves recovered – repeated eight times. Swapping with you partner and repeat. Feel the burn – and the minor punch to my face because my partner and I were chatting a little too much! Haha! Oops!
Next set with the pads and gloves, 20 seconds of hooks and 10 seconds of squats with pulses for the one in the pads during recovery, again eight times. In between swapping we did some intervals to get our heart rates back up, which it did, 30 seconds of jumping jacks, 30 seconds of knees ups, 30 seconds of pulsing squats and 30 seconds of sprinting on the spot, repeated three times. Then back to the pads and gloves work.
Then there was the boxer’s stance running backwards, swap legs, then jumping the line and repeat. There was jumping the line and squatting – repeated three times.
Then there was sprinting.
Finally, the cool down… phew… lots of lovely stretching! A good session for Janathon Day 14! 🙂 xxx
