Tabata Workouts

Happy Tuesday!  Although I had a dream it was wear-jeans-to-work-Friday.  Still 3 days away from that!  Oh well.

Last night the weather held up, so I headed to class in the park.  We did a good 40 minutes of different planks, Tabata style.  If you're not sure what that is, check it out HERE.  We would work for 20 seconds, rest 10, 8 reps of each exercise.  It sounds easy but it's NOT.  Plus, it was extremely muggy outside last night so I was dripping.  We also did about 10 minutes of squats and some ab stuff, plus I did the "300" ab series at home.

I'm pretty frustrated with my belly lately.  Although I'm wearing a smaller size now, it's still flabby and feels bloated.  Bleh...It must be the hardest thing to tone.  I feel good about my legs though, so that's a plus.

I'm signed up for a 10K American Cancer Society GWB challenge this coming Sunday.  Last year I almost had an anxiety attack when we got on to the GWB.  Either my fear of heights kicked in or since it was my first race, I was anxious.  I think I'll be ok this time.  I'm most likely switching to the 5K.  My hip/lower back is still bothering me (more so today from dancing over the weekend plus the workout last night).  I can always walk it, but it's just not the same.

If you're interested, here's a Tabata Workout.
