Hi! This has been a tough week for me physically.  I feel pretty worn out, so it’s good that I had eased back on my workout plan anyway.  I haven’t been able to give a full effort in any of my work outs and my heart rate is sluggish.  Normally in spinning class I burn between 450 and 500 calories…today I only managed to burn 350!  I’m hoping that I will bounce back next week and have a great week.  Until then I’m taking it easy!

Better late than never, here is yesterday’s strength training workout:  


Green (Medium) Exercise Resistance Band
12kg Kettlebell
14kg  Kettlebell
18” Plyo Box
Cable Row Machine


10m Self Myofascial Release aka Foam Rolling

20 steps Mini Band (around ankle) Bent Knee Lateral Walk

4x (circuit style;no rest between exercises!):

Also, can we take a moment to recognize the first Boston snowfall of 2012?! Only a dusting, but notable!
