    Labor day (Monday), we rocked out a quick HIIT workout with a bunch of family looking on and waiting to start dinner.
    Warmup:
    Pushup x10
    Air Squat x20
    Lap around yard
    - Repeat for 2 times

    Workout:
    Jump Rope
    Shovel Glove
    Medicine Ball Throw and Chase
    Tire Flip
    KB Swing
    Ab Wheel Rollouts
    Burpees
    Chair Dips
    1 minute interval – very short break to move between exercises

    Felt good, took about 15 minutes.
    You can see pics at WLB's fitness blog.

    The boys started school on Tuesday. I don't love having schedules and for some reason homeschooling just hasn't felt right, so back to the grind they go. They have pretty good teachers from what I can tell, and so far they've been happy with their primal lunches and haven't been offered much junk at school. I have hopes that this year will be great. As soon as WLB got home from work we took off to Woodland Park and just played around and explored as a family. We had a rousing game of tag that has us all laughing and sweating. I took the girls on walks and to the park a few mornings after dropping the boys off, but the week was so busy with babysitting and back to school nights and such that it was hard to get in a running night or any purposeful workout. Come Friday morning I just had to do something, so I popped in the intermediate yoga DVD that WLB got me for Christmas and spent an hour just getting back into my body. It was AWESOME. It's been far too long since I had a good long vinyasa. It felt amazing and left me spent, sore and so happy. Girl #1 really wanted to walk to get the boys. She wore shoes that didn't fit and lost the latch to the jogging stroller, so I pushed Girl #2 in the umbrella stroller and carried Girl #1 on my shoulders the 1.7 mile round trip (carrying backpacks on the way home). It was hot and sweaty! I felt like I'd gotten plenty of exercise for the day, when suddenly our plans for a running night (which we had assumed were dead) were resurrected. WLB wanted to go and Misha offered to bring her boys over for dinner and watch all the kids while we went. I was already about dead at that point, but threw together a spaghetti zoodle and meatball dinner and off we went up Farmington Canyon! Both of us were pretty spent for the day, but we had a good leisurely run, stopping to play, climb, make out and take pictures. 3.7ish miles total.
    Did I say pictures? Yes. Yes I did.

    FALL LEAVES!!


    I love a good canyon trail run!

    And why not add some yoga?... on a rock.... cuz I'm awesome like that....

    Love, love ,love...

    Thanks HB! You always know what to say. *blush*
    My tiger stripes are definitely there, but I've made peace with them. I earned 'em one struggling sack of badgers at a time!

    AND more of the workings out.
    WLB had a training workout scheduled with his team from the upcoming Tough Mudder. They've had a few great workouts together and he really wanted me to come along, so we put the littlest to nap and left the 10 yr old in charge and went to a local elementary school playground/fit station thingy.
    Our workout today consisted of 3 15 minute sections:
    Warmup/Round 1:
    Run for 2 minutes
    Bear Walk for 1 minute (quadripedal movement)
    Run
    Monkey Bars!
    Run
    Crab Walk
    Run (sheesh is there some sick pattern here or what?!)
    Monkey Bars!!
    Run
    Walking lunges
    Round 2:
    Run 2 minutes (wait more?!)
    Tire Flip 1 minute
    Run (Most definitely more!)
    Sledgehammer
    Run
    Sandbag (70#) lift (clean, clean & press, whatever)
    Run
    Jump Rope
    Run
    Traveling dips on parallel bars
    Round 3:
    Farmer Carry 2 minutes (35 lb kb in each hand)
    Burpees 1 minute
    Sled pull (70# sandbag in sled)
    Jump angle sprint (Broad jump forward, Sprint to the side and forward for about 10 yards, repeat)
    Medicine Ball throw and chase (17# ball)
    Goblet squat (20# kb)
    Agility Ball throw and catch - mean little sucker bounced all over the place!
    More MONKEY BARS!
    and Box Jumps.

    I thought I kept up pretty well. That last set of monkey bars was more than my hands could handle after so many bars and the rope for the sled pull. Youch!
    All in all we ran about 2.5 miles in between everything else. After yesterdays yoga/child carry walk/canyon run, I was sore and tired. Add this to the top of it and there isn't a muscle on my body that isn't spent, sore and on fire. My legs felt like they weighed 100 lbs each after we finished. Which was great because I still had lawns to mow with my mac-truck-heavy dead-drive mower. I procrastinated a lot, and when I finally got around to it, I thought I'd keel over any second. WLB offered to do the front yard after I did the back. Even with his grass and weed allergies, he didn't hesitate to spare me. I love that man.
    I went inside to bathe children and make dinner while he finished up. Then we had to get kids to bed- only then was I allowed to sit for a minute before taking a shower. I am so tired!! I told Justin (engineer of the aforementioned Tough Mudder training workout), "Sometimes I feel really fit. Sometimes I feel like a pansy. After a workout like that, I just feel like a really fit pansy."
    Thank heaven tomorrow is Sunday. I'm sure my movements tomorrow will be things of comedy.
