Tuesday 12 Days of Christmas -- 7/26

I haven't been working out as hard as I would like, and I wanted to get back into a good workout groove, so I decided to feel a little festive and bring back the 12 Days of Christmas Workout.  I ran the 1.6 miles to the gym as a warm up and then went right into the 12 days . . . total sweat fest!  Day 8 was the worst one . . . honestly thought I might rupture my some internal organ!  Ugh! 
  1. Lap around the indoor track (1/15 of a mile)
  2. Burpees
  3. Fire Hydrant (each leg with a leg extension)
  4. Dips
  5. Push ups
  6. Bicycles
  7. Prisoner Squats (with an elbow to knee leg raise on each side)
  8. Russian Twists w/ 6lb weighted ball
  9. Side oblique crunches  (each side)
  10. Standard Crunch
  11. Crossover Crunch (each side)
  12. Bird Dogs
I was able to get through this, but it did cause some coughing and shortness of breath, but I held up well overall.  I plan on doing more of these workouts because I really gotten bored with the class selection at the Y, and I would rather do my own workouts than go through a boring class.  Or worse a class that is poorly run and makes you wonder if you are risking injury.  Luckily there are only two instructors at the Y that I question, and I avoid their classes like the plague.  I am hoping to get in a good run this weekend, but for now, I am just happy to have done a workout that I feel was kind of tough.
