Tabata Climb

Last night was amazing!! We headed to Capitol theater with Brents side of the family for an 8 pm curtain call to see Wicked! Brents dad bought us these tickets last year. I have been anticipating this night ever since! Wicked has always been a musical I have been wanting to go to since I was in high school!
What a group!
Warning: All pics from Iphone.. I brought my SLR but NOT the sim card! #fail
It was such a fun musical! It was our first time seeing Wicked and we both really enjoyed it. I really was a fan of Gaaalinda!
This morning, after a late night I slept as much as possible before getting up to teach Body Pump.
After class I tackled the GPP workout and completed this Sprint workout.
I used my gym boss interval timer for the tabatas. It is a FREE APP!
This is the same one I did yesterday. If you are wanting to absolutely drip “liquid awesome” This is a great workout for you.
I did 100 timed sit-ups before stretching. Phew. I really started to slow down after about 60. I would like to sub 2 100 sit-ups again. I will have to try again when I’m not exhausted…
After every run/workout I am going to be spending a little extra time stretching and rolling.
So today I spent a good 15 minutes stretching and rolling afterwards. I have a foam roller at home but the chances of me taking time once I get home is little to none, especially with the twinners who also like to roll at the same time as mommy. My IT bands are tiiiiiiiiight, I can feel huge knots on each side.. eek. Stretching and rolling is so important to your training to help prevent injury and that is something I need to be better at. I am done with injuries this year, so you know I’m going to do all I can to prevent anymore!
I made a quick trip home to get some protein in my system. Before heading to the zoo for the day!
