Last week I failed miserable with #elf4health. I think I may have overcommitted myself for everything I have going on at work right now. I got partnered with Carissa for these next two weeks. I know that she has been busy with school and work too. She is a personal trainer.
Elf4Health-Track your water intake. I did good at this because I drink a lot of water. I drank over 132 ounces throughout the day.
Workout- FarmgirlfitThis was by far the hardest workout I have ever completed at FGF. It was so hard- my arms were screaming at me. Workout consisted of "bears" and box jumps
*What is a bear? Consists of 5 moves: dead lift, clean, front squat, squat press, back squat...repeat. They really are "bears"!
12 box jumps 1 bear (55 lbs)
11 box jumps 2 bears (55 lbs)
(you get the idea of the ladder?)
2 box jumps 11 bears (55 lbs)
1 box jumps 12 bears (55 lbs)
Took me 37:35 to complete the entire workoutThe last time I did "bears" there wasn't as many to complete (5 rounds of 5) and I was barely able to do 45 lbs.
Then we had extras!
20 ab mat push ups
1 minute plank
This took my 9:06
Elf4Health- Clean out my pantry & fridge. Also did great at this. Nice clean fridge!
Workout- 6 x 1 mile repeats at 8:00 minute pace w/1:00 minute recovery. All paces were right on target.
Elf4Health- Eat 3 servings of veggies by 3pm. Didn't score on this challenge. I think I had 2 servings by 2pm.
Workout- Farmgirlfit400 meter row
5 cleans (65 #)
10 dorothy kicks
15 kb swings (26#)
800 meter row
Total time: 16:34
Thursday:Elf4Health- Buy coffee for the person in line behind or your treat your co-workers to a snack. I usually drink my coffee at home so I was going to treat my co-workers and then got too busy. FAIL.
Workout- 1 mile easy warm up (8:18) followed by: 5 x (2 x 30 second w/1 minute recovery , 1 x 60 seconds w/2 minute recovery) at 6:00 minute per mile pace.
Elf4Health- Workout with a buddy. Oddly there was only two of us at Farmgirlfit. That should count, right?!
8 rounds of 20 seconds w/10 second recovery
For rowing we just kept a running total of calories, but for the other 3 rounds you tried to match you first round for the remaining 7 rounds.
1. Rowing for calories- Kept a running total and had 52 calories
2. Double Unders- 12
3. Wall Balls- 5 (was doing level 4)
4. Lunges- 14
Elf4health- Donate to a holiday charity in the area. I put change in the salvation area pot at the grocery store.
Workout- DAY OFF!
Workout- Easy 10 miles. Finished in 1:20:22!
Questions for you:
Are you having problems completing Elf4Health too? I know a couple of people have decided not to participate this round.
How was your week?
