    I only lift weights and sprint once a week. My typical week looks like this:
    Monday: yoga
    Tuesday: climb
    Wednesday: rest
    Thursday: lift + sprint
    Friday: yoga
    Saturday: kayak or climb (or cross country ski in the winter)
    Sunday: bike or hike

              • I did 5 rings muscles up supersetted with 5 handstands (going from frog stand to handstand slowly and in a controlled manner).
                then I did 5 pistols on each legs
                then I did 3 sets of 5 L-pull ups on the rings
                I finished with 1 arm chin up work on the ring (using the other ring as a lever. I plan on being able to do 1 arm chin up next month).

                then I did some rail walking which happens to be the subject of the blog post i will post tomorrow.

                • Monday: rest
                  Tuesday: Biking. It is supposed to hit 80% humidity in Boston today. Nothing like biking through soup to really make your hair fro out.

                    • Quarter miles sprint walk to tabata set (5x10/50) of body-weight rows and pushups. Five minutes of tabata today, working my way up to ten.
                      Started PB late 2008, lost 50 lbs by late 2009. Have been plateaued, but that thing may just be biting the dust: more on that later.

                      • Laura, good luck, do you keep your carbs really low? Sometimes a little starchy goodness can be a good recovery snack for a glycogen-depriving workout.

                        Today... Was supposed to be resting, because Zuzanna really kicked my ass in those twenty minutes yesterday morning. Those plank lifts were no joke. But I got REALLY good sleep last night, and my energy told me to get my ass on my bike for a quick 30 minute ride, and I did the whole thing with no hands. It's surprising how much more your legs have to work when your arms aren't there to assist. For an added bonus, I extended both my arms overhead and tried to keep them very straight and sit with SUPERB posture the whole time while pedaling. My heart was POUNDING!

                          Thanks.

                          Carbs are almost always below 100, usually under 50. Lately, I've been having a banana (probably for carbs and potassium) with my breakfast (which is after the workout).

                          I am amazed at how wupped 5 minutes can make one. Great feeling.

                          • I did a HIIT, aka Spring once in a while...

                            I skipped about 25 meters, then ran backwards 25 meters... did that again and then did 30 jumping jacks. I then took a break and did it all over again a few times...

                            It was an awesome workout!
