Handstand Touches, Arm Balance Fun, Sweating Pink, WWC Update

Hi. This is an update of my progress in The Workout Warrior Challenge. I can tell a difference already in my strength. My legs are firmer and it is only the second week. I have heard from a few of you that have also have experienced positive results, so keep it up! Make sure you comment and let me know how you are doing.

WOW#2 started great. I did 6 rounds in the 20 minutes for the day 1 workout. My goal for day 3 is to increase my weight(I used a 15 lb KB) for the sumo squats. My goal for Thursday is 7 rounds in 20 minutes using a 25 lb DB for the sumo squats.

I did Day 2 yesterday. Runs with Tabatas! My total time was 18:39 with the 800m run. I felt good.  I modified one round on the lunge jumps. I know I can go faster on my runs and I will lower my time when I do this workout again on Friday.

Today I will be Sweating Pink! Every Wednesday for the rest of October I will wear pink to raise awareness for breast cancer. Join in and put on your pink (boys too:) and Sweat Pink during your workout. I always try to think about the challenges that many people with cancer face on a daily basis. I look at how strong they are and it inspires me to push and work hard to do the best that I can and be the best I can every day. I have so much to be thankful for.

A friend challenged me to do these handstand touches to see how many I could do. It is harder than it looks. I completed 30. I will practice on that. I got in handstand (not a very good one though) and alternated taps on my abdomen.

I was just goofing off attempting eight angle pose. I have not attempted this arm balance in a while. It needs a little polishing but not bad.

Well it has been a great week so far. I hope your week is going well. Let me know how your workouts are going. Did any of you do the stir fry?

How about a quick challenge? How many burpees (without the pushup)  can you do in 1 minute? Get it done! I want to know your number. Remember sweat everyday and love it!
