I am over the moon over this chart. Yes, I said over the moon about a chart.

First of all, is this not wholedaytastic. Either very low intensity activity morning and afternoon, or balanced between low intensity and no activity. I have that high intensity Saturday afternoon, that's me lifting Nora's weights. That's the pearl earring of mornings and afternoons; that's a short duration, high intensity workout. Evenings I just about have a 3/2/2 high-low, actually slightly on the low side for the first time ever. Leading Sunday referee practice and training my Tuesday client are nice and low, Monday practice and Thursday scrimmage are high, and the pearl earring of evenings is Wednesday when I run and do ab work with Kris. I'm on the fence whether or not to count it as one of my high intensity workouts. For now I'm saying it's a long duration, low intensity workout, it's a seven mile bike, thirty minute interval run with Kris, then stretches and ab work, oh and a seven mile bike back. I started Kris running about six weeks ago, much to her trepidation. And kind of to my trepidation, I hate running. I forget why I thought it would be a good idea but it totally was, Kris and I facebook each other now looking forward to our run. The other week we got rained out and we were sooo disappointed, we did jumping jacks and ab work instead but it wasn't as good. Ha, this ab work. Trixxxie started the Fury on a thirty day ab challenge; you might have gathered that I'm not the hugest fan of horizontal ab work, least of all crunches. But, team. And I will say this, a year and a half of sympathetically engaging my abs along with my clients' vertical ::fist pump:: ab work and I actually have the core strength to get something out of these silly exercises. I super analyze them for form, I put in my own rest days, and it's actually been a decent program.
