  • 10am Yoga/Pilates Class ~ Side Crane, added shooting legs back into a Plank/Chatarunga ~ FUN
  • Biked to WF with Dave for pizza supplies 😛 Horrendous headwind there; ride back was a breaze.

Thurs, 19 Aug.

  • Laps in the pool for 30 minutes.  I decided to tackle breathing today; apparently I am supposed to exhale through my nose under water. 😛  After warming up, I spent the first 20 minutes swimming hard & concentrating on form alternating between crawl, breast & sidestroke [with nose plug]; the last 10 I worked on exhaling through my nose under water [sans plug] doing a sort of deep breast stroke & then tried with crawl, before cooling down.  It got easier.  This is probably a horrendous approach & instilling more bad than good habits, but I am not training, just swimming recreationally because I enjoy it.

Wed, 18 Aug.

  • Short jog [just over 1mile] with Eisley to a park.  Eis is not my best running partner yet. 😀  She is fast — she can waste me when she wants — but she is easily distracted & constantly slows to watch cars coming up behind/along side us; I am left encouraging her on rather than pushing my own pace.  I think we would both prefer trail running in the canyons.
  • HIIT: 3 different 4-minute sets, each targeting specific areas to meet my goals = 12 minutes.  6 rounds each; short water break between sets.
  1. Alternating between “Explosive Star” for 20 seconds & “Plank to Pike” for 20 seconds. (40 sec = 1 round, 6 rounds total)
  2. Alternating between “Pull Ups” for 20 seconds & “Seated Bicycle” for 20 seconds.
  3. Alternating between “Regular Push Up to Monkey Push Up” for 20 seconds & “Hanging Knee Raises” for 20 seconds.
  • Dave picked us up on his way home from work & talked me into finishing up by racing Eisley across the grass 4 times.  She won…at least when she wanted to. 😀

Tues, 17 Aug.

  • 9am Yoga class ~ Eka Pada Koundinyasana II ~ I had never tried this pose before.  Per normal I was restricted by my tight hamstrings, so completely straightening my forward leg was not an option.  I was surprised & pleased I could hold this – -so pleased, I had to duplicate it later for Dave in front of our favorite tea spot on the sidewalk. 😛

    Hello Allie,
    Just discovered your blog & really enjoy everything about it, you are quite inspiring! As I was scanning through your workouts I noticed you using the P90X system & I am wondering how you like it (I’m thinking about getting it & seeing what actual people think of it). I see it’s not noted until more recent posts, which makes me think you have recently bought it yourself. As winter weather is beginning to set in here in CO I’m looking for other outlets to get fabulous results, also saving money not going to a gym right now.
    Love any feedback you might have time for & hope the transition for you to AZ has been well (noticed here that you recently moved). One more question, I am between jobs or more like trying to find new work & am always curious what people who live their lives like I like to (playing as much as possible & not stuck behind a desk 365) do for a living. I’m particularly asking this question because I feel as though I’m in a rut & am looking for new opportunities to explore.
    Thanks again~

      Hi Stef!
      Thanks for stopping by! I know about the “rut” so I’m more than happy to talk with you. I’m just on my way out the door, but I wanted to let you know I saw this & will email you later today.
