Wild Workout Wednesday!

Here we are at Wednesday again!  It has been another week filled with fun workouts!  Oh, and keep having to remind myself that going to the grocery store after the gym is really not the best idea!! Stick to the list Esther, just stick to the list!  Haha I am sure some of you can relate to the RUNGRY feeling!
Anyways, here was what was planned from last week:
Thursday- Try to walk/jog 3-4 miles
Friday- Piyo and 2 miles
Saturday- Body Pump or rest & LOTS of stretching and foam rolling!
Sunday- Race- was supposed to do the 10 miles, but I am sticking with the 5 for now.  If some miracle happens and I am up for it, I will do the 10. Plus LOTS of stretching and foam rolling!
Monday- Body Pump and volleyball
Tuesday- Zumba

And here is what actually went down:
Thursday- Body pump and biking for 21 min (6 miles)
Friday- Ended up more of a rest day due to a sick kiddo and working late.  I did manage a small walking workout.
Saturday- I managed to get up booty up and I went to piyo.  It felt great to get some good stretching in since my hip was a bit of a mess.
Sunday- The Texas 10 series race- 5 miles.  You can read my recap here if you so desire!

Monday- Body pump and biking for 22 min
Tuesday- Elliptical for a little 5k, zumba and 20 min of walking
I am participating in a workout challenge with the focus of raising awareness for Batten Disease.

Batten disease is a rare, genetic, neurodegenerative disorder. Batten attacks an otherwise
healthy child beginning with vision loss, declined cognitive skills, and seizures.  Progressively, children suffer loss of memory and speech until they are mentally and physically incapacitated, eventually leaving them wheel-chair bound, then bedridden. With no current treatment or cure, Batten disease is always fatal, often by the late teens or early twenties.

There is a young boy in my community who was diagnosed a few years ago and his family has been challenging us to DO SOMETHING!  So these workouts are for Will!

IMG_2036Wednesday- Today was a great combo of body pump followed by an hour of yoga!  It was perfect for stretching out my super tight muscles and it really felt great on my hip!  I even attempted a new move today.  I almost fell on my face but I managed to hold the position/stretch!

I have not been to just a yoga class in a LONG time!  I kept trying to make it but it hadn’t worked out till today!  I am always nervous about trying new classes.  I feel like I am going to be singled out or stared at since I usually don’t have a clue what the heck I might be doing!  Thankfully those thoughts are usually proven wrong and I am welcomed with open arms!

For the next week I am really trying to add in even more stretching and foam rolling!  I NEED to get this hip back to running more!  If anyone wants to be a stretching accountability buddy, let me know 🙂

On the agenda:
Thursday- Zumba & boot camp
Friday- Either piyo or elliptical
Saturday- Body pump & piyo
Sunday- Bike
Monday- Body pump & Grit then volleyball if the sand is dry enough
Tuesday- Walk or elliptical then zumba
Wednesday- Body pump and yoga

I am joining Annmarie from The Fit Foodie Mama, Angelena Marie from  Angelena Marie: Happy, Healthy & Balanced , Michelle at Fruition Fitness and  Nicole from Fitful Focus for Wild Workout Wednesday!
